As a long time patient of Alvin Sockolov (8 years), I am stunned by the negative reviews! In my experience, he has been and is, a very caring, concerned, and so well qualified in providing excellent medical care. He has been interested and cared lot for my over all welfare. He has made some really great referrals to doctors who are the top of their fields. When I have been to see him, I have been surprised by his knowledge of and caring about me where my health was in areas he was not treating me for. He is a busy professional but he has always taken as much time as needed to answer my questions and give me the care I need. He is a wonderful doctor! I drive from El Dorado Hills, which is inconvenient and he is well worth it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him as a PCP professional!
