Self-verified patient of Dr. Sonoo K Advani - Posted on September 24th, 2020
I greatly appreciate that Dr. Advani is an excellent holistic doctor. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my hips. Other doctors had recommended I take drugs with serious side-effects. She reviewed my bone density tests like no other doctor I had been to before. I have a mild case and she prescribed supplements and certain types of exercises to strengthen my bones. As a result, my last bone density test showed stability and even some growth. The thing that most impressed me was that during my intake interview, she identified a stomach issue I didn't realize I had. She sent me for blood work and sure enough I am gluten sensitive. She prescribed a gluten-free diet and supplements, which stopped the acid reflux I was having. I also find the office staff very competent, patient and friendly. I recommend her highly.

I went to Sonoo (I will not call her Dr. Advani) a few times for a few issues such as fatigue, weight problems, and joint pain. I was diagnosed with low testosterone and given treatment, but it did not do very much. Last month I had a Teleconference with Sonoo. A few days prior, I went for bloodwork at her request and then called her office to book an appointment. The staff told me that the results should be ready in 3 - 4 days so I booked for a few days after. When I got on the conference call, I told Sonoo I wasn't feeling well and she snapped that I should be glad that I don't have Cornoavirus. She said that she was exhausted from being on the front lines of fighting the disease. I reiterated that I was simply giving an honest report of what I was experiencing and she sarcastically suggested that I find a new doctor since I was making her office look bad. She immediately launched into a series of questions regarding Coronavirus symptoms (which I couldn't understand because it has nothing to do with endocrinology). Sonoo then went to look at my blood results and immediately starting literally screaming that it takes 10 days for results to be delivered, not 3. I burst out that her staff had told me themselves that this was not the case and she exclaimed, "EVERYBODY knows that it takes 10 days!" After that, she said she would call me back when the results arrived. I felt compelled to defend myself since the staff had told me 3 or 4 days would be fine and not 10. So I calmly started to explain this and she interrupted me by roaring, "IN A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES, I HAVE NO TIME TO SIT HERE DISCUSSING OFFICE POLICY!" Then she hung up. Two weeks later, I went to another endocrinologist who patiently performed a very in-depth analysis and advised that my symptoms sounded more like a sleep issue than endocrinology. At her suggestion, I saw a sleep specialist who revealed I do in fact have a sleeping disorder. As for Sonoo who never had the time to really do anything in-depth with me, I called her office and asked if she is really helping Coronavirus patients as she had mentioned. They were confused and said no. No other doctor, including the one who recommended me to her, has been able to figure out her reasoning or why blasted me as she did. I am planning to talk to a lawyer.

SHe literally says things like she doesn't make enough money. She is rude and has no care about how you are feeling . She has lost her mind.

Dr. Sonoo Advani is an excellent and extremely caring physician. She took the time to explain my bloodwork and thyroid scan in-depth during my visit. She answered my questions and addressed my concerns giving me peace of mind. I whole heartedly recommend her as an Integrative Endocrinologist who uses evidenced based adjuncts to improve health as well.

Spends very little time with patient. Can be very abrupt. Office personnel not friendly.

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to a goat! I went in with questions about my blood work, and must've asked her the same question twice, because she slammed down her fist and said I don't understand why you keep asking me the same question! please do not question my expertise! And then she started to rattle off all of her degrees and certifications. And then stormed out of the room. And my thyroid numbers are worse than ever under her care. Goodbye Dr. Advani. Maybe being a doctor is not the right profession for you, because you are not as knowledgeable as you think you are, you are threatened by patients who challenge you, and you have no bedside manner. Horrific

You don’t meet many honest doctors anymore. Most just push pharmaceutical drugs without really looking at the patient to find a natural way to help heal the issue. Dr. Advani is a honest holistic doctor that can treat any problems. I have had diabetes 2 for 4 years, I went to other medical facilities who just pushed whatever drug was the latest my way. Dr. Advani helped coach me naturally along with what medicine was needed I am in better shape and my A1C is at the lowest ever 6.0. I recommend her for anyone that wants an honest opinion.
Excellent and very experience doctor

Against Dr. Advani

My review of Dr. Advani is very bad and very serious. What I have to say does not fit here. You may read it on Yelp. I strongly urge you to do so.

I was referred to Dr. Advani from my (traditional) M.D. because I was looking for a fresh approach to ongoing hypothyroidism issues, that never seem to improve. Dr. Advani is a welcome breath of fresh air with an innovative, open approach to my treatment. She sits besides you, asks many questions and actually listens to your answers, working with you to find solutions. I've been helped tremendously by her and am feeling much better since I started treatment with her. Her staff is efficient and extremely helpful.
