About 7 years ago, I asked a friend who's also a physician at Duke (and the head of a department) if he knew any good gynecologists who also performed laparoscopies and had some familiarity with endometriosis, hysterectomies or other gynecological issues. He didn't know anyone personally, but given his position at Duke, he was able to ask doctors in maternal-fetal medicine, as well as one or two other docs he knew. I believe each person he asked came back with Dr. Sobolewski's name and highly recommending him.
I went to see him and have continued to see him ever since. I've had two ablations with him and, most recently, a hysterectomy and some intervention for endometriosis. This was a very difficult decision for me to make (hysterectomy) and literally took me years to get to that point. During that time, Dr. Sobolewski was understanding, informative and well versed in options other than hysterectomy. He also has good bedside manner, something I value given what is to me a lifelong, sensitive and painful health issue. (I also experienced infertility years ago and am an adoptive mom).
His nurse overseeing ultrasounds and assisting in ablations is phenomenal! She's also very sensitive to patient needs and I just love when I know she's going to be running a test. She puts one at ease.
The only negative comment would not be regarding him, but support staff - when one calls needing to reach a nurse. It can take two-three days to hear back from someone and getting prescriptions called in seems to be tricky for staff as well for some reason. Aside from that, after years of ob/gyn visits in three countries, including various well-known fertility specialists and gynecologies, my experience with Dr. Sobolewski is among my best. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any patient with a more complicated gynecological history or needs.
