What's up Doc?

I am beyond excited to introduce Dr. Sonia Rebeles to our patients.  I had been searching for a doctor that would complement my practice philosophy for a long time.  I received many great applicants but none that captured my heart and soul until now.  Dr. Rebeles responded to my very quirky and unusual job posting.  Those of you who know me well, wouldn’t be surprised to know that the job listing was a little like this:  Do not apply if your staff will be having tequila shots and celebrating 4th of July early when you announce your departure.  Do apply if there will be mass chaos and mourning if you leave your current job.  She called me laughing and we immediately connected.  I felt like I was talking to my long lost sister and I knew she was the right pick.

Hailing from the Lone Star State and with humble beginnings, she was determined to succeed.  She is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology.  She had her own practice in Texas but decided to move to California to be close to her sisters.  She  worked for two years in Beverly Hills before deciding to join our practice.  Her area of expertise is in minimally invasive benign gynecologic surgery including robot-assisted (daVinci) surgery and single site surgery.


Dr. Rebeles received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Stanford University in Human Biology and her medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She completed residency training at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at El Paso where she subsequently served as an Assistant Professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Director of the Minimally Invasive Surgical Skills Laboratory.

In Seattle, WA, she obtained additional post-residency fellowship training in minimally invasive surgery, where she refined both traditional laparoscopic and robot-assisted (daVinci) surgical techniques using some of the earliest models of robot-assisted surgery. She is one of few female surgical proctors of robotic surgery and has taught many physicians the fundamentals of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery throughout her career.

Dr. Rebeles is a Fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG), and is an active member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, and the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. Her interests include irregular, heavy or painful menstrual bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic pain, and urinary incontinence. Using a combination of compassionate and empathetic care, evidence-based medicine, sound knowledge of pelvic anatomy, and the incorporation of state-of-the art surgical technology, Dr. Rebeles is committed to offering women innovative treatment options for multiple gynecologic problems.
