Robert J Sobel, MD

Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)

Focus of Work


I have devoted my career to maintaining a state--of-the-art but individualized approach to primary care medicine, endocrinology, and, most specifically, the care of patients with all forms of diabetes. My main area of academic focus is to advocate for a minimization of bureaucratic obstacles that interfere with the primacy of the patient-physician relationship.
