Dr. Sokkary received her medical degree at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine and completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Kaiser Permanente in East Bay in Oakland, Calif.

Upon completion of her training, Dr. Sokkary returned to the University of New Mexico to develop a pediatric and adolescent gynecology program. In 2016, she relocated to Navicent Health/Mercer University School of Medicine/ in south Georgia.
While the Southwest is her original home, Dr. Sokkary immediately fell in love with the patients and community in Georgia. She is thrilled to be in Atlanta to help further develop Children’s pediatric and adolescent gynecology practice.
As a pediatric and adolescent gynecology subspecialist, Dr. Sokkary focuses on female reproductive health from birth to young adulthood. Patients in this age range often have gynecologic needs that are distinct from adult females. Dr. Sokkary enjoys collaborating with other providers for patients who have rare and unique conditions, including abnormal anatomy and puberty, disorders of sexual differentiation and bleeding disorders. She also has a passion for helping young women through more routine issues, such as irregular menses, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), ovarian cysts and vaginal discharge.
Dr. Sokkary prides herself in helping bridge the healthcare gap for young women and children who may exist between pediatricians and obstetrician gynecologists. Dr. Sokkary has a particular interest in caring for girls with bleeding disorders and those in need of complex contraception. She looks forward expanding her research in these areas, and serving the young people of Atlanta and surrounding areas.
