I have been a patient of Dr. Sonnenblick's for two years. In regards to Dr. Sonnenblick personally, I've always found her to be friendly, helpful, and informative. She takes her time with patients and makes them feel cared for. Unfortunately, for various reasons (as described below), I would never recommend her to anyone.
In regards to her staff, I've never had a good experience. Her front office staff speak in loud voices that do not lend to patient confidentiality. They do not take responsibility for their mistakes or have sympathy for patients that have been waiting multiple hours past their appointment times. Mistakes in insurance billing are placed on the patient and any patients that express frustration are met with very aggressive responses.
Her scheduling staff aren't redeeming. When I called for an emergency appointment, I was not given one. Instead I was offered one in two weeks. At which point, I was forced to go to a local emergency clinic and then the ER.
Another area of disappointment is the prescriptions Dr. Sonnenblick writes. She was very kind to give me three month supply of my first oral contraceptive. However, with insurance, I was paying over $100 a month after that. When I went for a visit and requested a generic brand, she refused and said that none were available.
Which leads me to insurance. I got married and changed my insurance over the course of my time with Dr. Sonnenblick. I cannot count the times I requested that my name and insurance be changed in my file. Unfortunately, they not only forgot to change my name and insurance, but their related lab sent a bill to collections in my name because Dr. Sonnenblick's office informed them that I had no insurance on file. As a result, my credit was affected. It took 9 months and over 30 phone calls to clear up. No apologies were offered.
I'm very sorry to say that I stayed with her practice until I got pregnant. Dr. Sonnenblick does not accept new OB patients, because of her obligations to her young family (admirable). After visiting my new OB's office for my first appointment, I signed a Release of Records. The next day Dr. Sonnenblick's office called me to inform me that they would not release my records unless I was willing to pay a large fee (allowable by state law) for reproduction costs. They charged the maximum the law would allow. Kindly, they offered to send my most recent records only, free of charge- which does no good when you are pregnant. I conferred with my lawyer and he suggested that I request a digital copy of my medical records. The office out and out refused, which is illegal. This final offense is why I am writing this review. To refuse OB treatment to a pregnant woman, then require a hefty payment in order for that woman to receive treatment elsewhere is cruel. Shame on that office.
I would not recommend this office to anyone for the various reasons listed. Most especially to the women that plan on starting a family at any point in their lives.
Many years ago, I was not feeling well, for several weeks. I was running a high fever and did not know why. After ruling everything out, I started thinking that my IUD may be infected. I had had it 26 years and had not seen a gynecologist in all that time. I asked my daughter, who she saw, and she told me Dr Amy. I called her office, then in Plantation, and explained my symptoms and thoughts. Dr. Amy had me come in IMMEDIATELY. After my examination, Dr Amy sent me directly, to the hospital, where she, literally, saved my life. I had :PID and way only a few hours away from the infection bursting and going into septic shock. She also saved me from a hysterectomy which most doctors would have opted for. She is worth waiting TWO hours for. Good things are worth waiting for. and once again, years and years later, I am still grateful for Dr Amy
