    Dr. Somai spent at least an hour with me on my initial consult, which is practically unheard of nowadays. She asked tons of questions and dug into my family and personal medical history very thoroughly. She has given me injections into my hip joints that were virtually painless, even though the needle was frighteningly long! I have found her to be an excellent and caring doctor.

    Dr Somai did a cursory exam and told me I had R A. She prescribed meds which caused a severe reaction. I have had pain but nothing like the eye pain I had from the reaction to the medications she prescribed. When called by the eye surgeon she was too busy to talk with him and could not even be bothered to return the call. Arrogant, cocky and above all, wrong! When I went to a new doctor at Vanderbilt THERE WAS NO RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS ! I have still not recovered from her errors.
