Dr. Maria Sophocles, MD

Gynecologist, OB-GYN

Professional statement

Dr. Sophocles understands the physical issues women face from their teens through post-menopause. "Women of any age want a physician they can trust," Dr. Sophocles says. "I spend time with my patients so they can share intimate issues and complex problems." As a resident at Johns Hopkins/GBMC, Dr. Sophocles learned the importance of empathy. "A patient's trust begins when she senses you care," she says. Throughout her over 20 years as a board certified Ob/Gyn, she has also upheld the Hopkins standards of clinical excellence and innovation. Always thinking outside the box, she promoted early development of umbilical cord blood banks, and researched non-invasive ways to detect abnormal fetal chromosomes. Now, she focuses on advancing non-invasive gynecological procedures to treat vaginal dryness and uterine bleeding. "If I can improve the health and the quality of life in my patients without the use of medications or surgery, then I have helped them with less risk."

Dr. Sophocles is one of the most caring, attentive, knowledgeable, and overall amazing human beings I have ever met. I have never had a doctor spend so much time with me or made me feel so well cared for. She wasincredibly easy to talk to and it felt like I was talking to a friend I had known for years. Not only is she a really experienced and intelligent gyn, but she is so compassionate and caring. It is obvious this is her passion and she truly cares!

The doctor was great, very nice and professional, but her coordinator who interviewed me was very confused and did not seem to be sure of what she was doing. She opened the door in the middle of the examination and forgotto save the file with my information, so the doctor had to re-do it.
