A medical receptionist made me an appointment with a Dr. who SHE said was the best Urologist. He wanted to do surgery for what I believed was a simple infection which caused swelling & was indicated by blood tests. I opted out of the surgery and searched online for a second opinion, so I went to Dr. Sokol. Everything about Dr. Sokol's office is 5-star. Dr. Sokol saved me from needless testicular surgery for a simple infection. Beware of Doctors setting you up for needless expensive procedures to line their own pockets. I happen to be a Nurse Tech. Dr. Sokol KNOWS his medical protocols and occupation well. 5-STARS!

Additionally, he has a very good personality.I highly recommend Dr. Alexander Sokol as super professional urologist.

I have been a patient of Dr Sokol for over 10 years and always find he and his staff to be very professional and courteous. On two ocassions this past year he performed two different procedures on me - on both cases he fully discussed them with me before hand and the post-procedure care was excellent. There have been a couple of times when he was unavailable for a routine visit but the staff member who saw me was quite knowledgeable of my history and I was completely satisfied with them. I would recommend Dr Sokol to others.

Dr. Sokol treated me like a human - unlike 4 other urologists that I saw. He is attentive, knowledgeable, explained in details my condition, gave me treatment options. Followed up with me after my surgery. His office is clean. His staff gave me a breakdown of my insurance. I felt in good hands. I am writing this review because people can easily complain but they rarely take time to say thank you for taking good care of me. I no longer have horrible pain caused by my kidneys and I am grateful he revealed me out of my misery.

Dr Sokol is an excellent Dr. I highly recommend him. Like in any place of work the girls at the front desk can sometimes be a little off center, but overall the staff is good.

Dr. Sokol pushes surgery that my primary care physician was distressed about. The staff is arrogant and unable to communicate fully unless you speak Russian. They make appointments for you without inquiring about your schedule. They don't answer questions and seem annoyed that you ask any. I would not recommend him.

This is my first and probably last appointment. Im confused and not happy because I wasn't seen by Dr A. Sokol. Doctor didnt show up! No one from the office didn't even say a word to me that Doctor not in the office! The nurse was instead!!! She didn't even represented herself, she was in a rush.. I didn't have time to answer any questions because she was running back and forth. This is not right, even she was ok, I made an appointment to see doctor not a nurse!

I went for a scheduled ultrasound...and had a lot of discomfort...wanted to speak to the doctor.... Staff was rude and said you can talk to the doctor You have to come back. The staff didn't even offer To call the doctor and tell him how bad I was feeling..I left the office and Will never go back...His staff has a very bad attitude and very cocky No manners!!!!

Staff are rude, especially the one that are middle aged with the glasses sitting on the right. Went to the office 3 times, never saw the doctor only female nurse practitioner. They do not tell you that you will not see doctor, they do not worn you about the female nurse will be examining and treating you. I wasted my time with this office and will never go back. Don't waste your time, look for someone who cares.

I called last week after submitting an appointment request online and not receiving a response. I was able to make an appointment for June 19th at 12:30pm with a woman I spoke to on the phone who took all my information including insurance information. After I booked over the phone I received a call from the office saying they received my online appointment request and offered an appointment to which I explained I already have one and even confirmed the date and time with the woman who called me. I arrived to my appointment and was told repeatedly by the younger receptionist with the botched lip injections that I never had an appointment. I tried to explain to her that I even confirmed the date and time over the phone after the office called me to book an appointment that I already booked. After arguing with me she threw her hands up and yelled "Fine! Then sign in!" and slams a pen down on the clipboard. I walked out, I will not be treated like that as soon as I walk into the door. If you are an unhappy and rude person you should not be working in the medical field.

Dr Sokol’s office staff is the rudest and the most unprofessional staff I have ever come in contact with! The doctor’s practice boarders on malpractice! Does not return phone calls, cancels appointments, orders blood work and never calls with results! Does not follow up with his patient after prescribing medications that could potentially cause cancer. Not only would I not recommend this doctor I would urge potential patients to look elsewhere all together!!
