It was the second time I visited him and I’m super glad that i found him. I’m wearing glasses/ contacts since my childhood and he is the best doctor I ever had. He is really taking care on every single patient and makes sure the everybody gets perfect glasses.

I have been seen by another eye doctor for the last few years and he essentially ignored my concerns about problems I have with my right eye. Something I've had my my entire life. Dr Sobel noticed my problem immediately, spentover an hour with me to get my prescription right. While going thru the testing he explained what he was doing, why he was doing it and reviewed everything he wrote down. I can't wait to get my glasses, I couldn't be happier.

Nice guy... very knowledgeable and approachable. Friendly as well as hyper-professional. Staff was very nice. Rochelle went over and above the call of duty and spent about a half hour helping me pick out frames, giving her fashion opinion whichI appreciated. Staff seems to like what they do and who they work for. What a concept!

I appreciated how quickly I could get the instruction for using contact lenses! It's such a relief to know I have time to get some practice with them before my sister's wedding.

Dr. Sobel is the best in the business! I've been coming to him for over 20 years. He's very thorough. Dr. Sobel would try to heal your eyes and get you out of glasses instead of making your eyes weaker andmore dependent of them. My eyes are too important for me to trust to just anyone! Therefore I hunted Dr. Sobel down and found him. Just has to work on the appointment time a little.
