Ratings for Dr. Maria E. Sophocles
Have seen Dr. Sophocles for a rare condition. Was treated with the Mona Lisa Touch and it has worked miracles for me. The condition is known as Lichen Sclerosis. I went for 8 years untreated since I could not find anyone to treat me. I've now had three treatments and it's like I'm a different person. This is a very new procedure so time will tell how long it lasts but I am very pleased with the results and the doctor is also. Her entire office is very friendly and helpful. Dr. Sophocles treats me like an old time friend or peer rather than a patient/doctor relationship. She is very friendly and helpful, listens and answers all your questions. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for quality care and a very friendly staff. If there is anyone who has Lichen Sclerosis this is the place to go to seek treatment. At long last I've found help and I am so grateful to Dr. Sophocles.
This is one of the worst offices I have ever been in. I am an office manager and was appalled at the way this office ran. Not a very big office but very rude. I watched while one woman was answering the office phone and the other was looking at her cell phone. It seems to me there is no manager available. I've waited for over 1 hr to find out that the dr left to get her lunch! Never again will I go back & since I work for a PCP I will let the doctors know how this office is ran!
I am very greatful to Dr. Sophocles for her knowledege and emphaty. She listens to the patient, spends time to really understand the issue and/or the results that the patient wants to achieve. Prior to going to her office I had a bad experience (malpratice) with anther gynecologist in Princeton, so metaphorically speaking, Dr. Sophocles has been like a "breath of fresh air". In additon, her office staff is friendly , courteous and accomodating.
I am delighted to have found Dr. Sophocles after my OB/GYN retired. I am a relatively healthy GYN patient and she still takes the time to explain what and why she is doing something. She is an active listener, ensuring she understands my questions, and then answers them to my full satisfaction. The waiting time (for me always less than 30 minutes) is worth it because she spends as much time with me as I need and I never feel rushed. Her clinical staff is efficient and helpful; the office staff keeps you informed if there is any delay and seems knowledgeable about the requirements of my insurance plan. I definitely recommend Dr. Sophocles to anyone looking for an intelligent, energetic, compassionate OB/GYN.
Dr. Sophocles' "bedside manner" is a bit frantic and scattered. This is also reflected in the way her office is managed. As another reviewer noted, this practice is extremely busy. Be prepared to wait, encounter rude and incompetent reception/scheduling, and awkward moments with her intake nurse. Renata Estes, however, is the nurse practitioner in the office and is attentive, caring and competent. If your gyn needs can be addressed by a nurse practitioner, see Renata. Otherwise, I recommend finding a different doctor.
perhaps the worst staff I have ever encountered in a physician's office. stupid and mean is never a good combination. dr. Sophocles is an adequate physician. her staff is both rude and incompetent. they are hurting what could be a decent practice
DO NOT GO HERE. While Dr. Sophocles is great, and I really enjoy my interactions, they abuse your time like you're completely unimportant. I'm trying to see a Doctor, not the ambassador to China. I've never waited less than 40 minutes for an appointment and, god forbid you have a question that requires a call back from the staff. About 50% of the time I hear back from a question (including something as simple as when my last appointment was). And if you need an appintment, be prepared to wait a month. It's just not worth the hassle. My time is valuable, and I want a doctor and staff who view it that way.
