Awful time management

I've been going to this office since I was a child. My experience had always been great. In the last few years, waiting time has increased significantly. When I schedule I 5:00 appointment, I am often not seen until 6:30 or later. It is very irresponsible, disrespectful and unprofessional to leave patients waiting this long. As I'm writing this, I have been waiting to be seen for 2 hours. Unacceptable. Also, a year ago I was diagnosed with strep throat here. A few days later my symptoms were getting worse and had to go to the hospital, turns out I had pneumonia and was required to stay in the hospital for 4 days.

My husband was a patient of Dr. Sobel's for over 10 years. a year and a half ago, my husband was diagnosed with terminal Kidney cancer which had metastasized to his lungs. Stage 4. He was diagnosed as am emergency room patient, because he was having trouble breathing. Two weeks previously, my husband had called Dr. Sobel's office complaining about shortness of breath and was told that this was going around and he could come in if he wanted, but it was probably his COPD acting up or a chest cold. That is not my issue, because a two week earlier diagnosis would not have mattered. All records were sent to the doctor's office, with the new diagnosis, the kidney removal surgery and everything that was going on. After 10 years + as a patient, there was never a call for Sobel's office just to check in or say hello. My husband had never had any issues with his care during all those years, but the doctor's lack of communication is rude, unprofessional and just wrong. That is my complaint.

After multiple trips to urgent cares and reputable ER's here in the Valley, I was beginning to lose my faith in fellow Medical practitioners along with losing my mind! DR. Larry Sobel, with his knowledge and professionalism has restored both. A visit to a Scottsdale ER days before, (which will end up costing me a couple thousand) and the doctor there didn't look in my ears, nose or throat, or listen to my stomach, despite my complaints of nausea, vomiting and dizziness. 2 days and a few minutes in his office, a great physical assessment the right meds! I'm cured!! Thank you so much, DR. Larry!!!
