About Dr. Sobel

As an internal medicine doctor in Owings Mills, MD, for 25+ years, Dr. Tamara Sobel has focused her care on three things: taking care of the whole person, emphasizing prevention, and building lifelong relationships.

“What I love about primary care, particularly as a concierge doctor, is the opportunity to build relationships with patients over time and becoming a part of their lives,” Dr. Sobel says.

A strong believer in the connection between the body and mind, Dr. Sobel’s positive, reinforcing care helps her patients find the right balance in their life.

“My goal is to help my patients get healthy, and stay healthy,” she says. “And I’ve found the best way to do that is to spend the time needed to build a relationship so we can discuss how you truly want to live, whether that’s to be healthy enough to run a marathon, coach your child’s tee-ball team, or travel the world in retirement.”

Dr. Sobel received her bachelor’s degree from American University and her medical degree from Georgetown University in 1990. She completed her internship and residency at the University of Maryland Hospital.

Dr. Sobel's Philosophy of Care

How Dr. Sobel cares for her patients stems directly from the influence of her father, an old-time family doctor who practiced medicine until he was 93.

“I can’t speak about my interest in medicine without talking about him,” she says. “He took care of generations of patients, many of whom still keep in touch with my family. He believed strongly in holistic care, as I do today, and I remember him telling me when I was 4 years old that girls could be doctors, too. Hearing how he cared for his patients definitely influences my care today.”

For Dr. Sobel, that care is built on a connection, which she seeks to establish early, often at the first appointment.

“I like to see where they are coming from and what their goals are,” she says. “As a team, we can then work together on addressing risk factors for certain diseases, modifying them, and focusing on a healthy lifestyle.”

Dr. Sobel: Beyond the Exam Room

Beyond the exam room just means being in the great outdoors for Dr. Sobel. “I love all kinds of outside activities – swimming, gardening, skiing, exercising, whatever. I’m not picky as long as its outdoors.”

She lives on a 16-acre farmette with her husband Danny. They have three adult children. A huge part of life on the farm for them has been taking care of animals.

“We’ve had many horses, a cow who lived until age 14, sheep, donkey, dogs, cats, and rabbits,” she says. “At one time we had 7 dogs we’d accumulated through rescues!”

The current count, as of this writing, is 6 horses, 3 miniature horses, 1 miniature donkey, 2 dogs, and 8 cats.

Aside from being outside, spending time with her family, animals, and working on the farm, she loves to garden, sit on a raft in a pool and read the Wall Street Journal, and take pictures of their animals and farm both traditionally and with a drone.

She also loves to exercise, particularly by doing yoga (she is also a certified yoga instructor) and taking Orange Theory fitness classes. And if she’s listening to music while working out, chances are good it’s Bruce Springsteen.

“I love a lot of music, but always come back to Bruce,” she says. “You can take the girl out of New Jersey but you cannot take New Jersey out of the girl.”
