Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Excellent. He listened and confirmed plant based nutrition was the best plan of action in my case. He reviewed my pathology report, past medical history, family, genetics, so I am comfortable with my prognosis.

Dr. Somer did not seem to care to pursue what my other Dr.'s had told me. Did not do any tests and made me feel like a complete Idiot as to why I was there. Did not even ask me what problems I was having. I would not refer a dog to see this man. I hate to think my Insurance has to pay him a penny!!

he is the ... Dr ever. he stopped my main medicine A.VASTIN (chemo) that was working well for no reason. after 3 months a tumor started to grow in my chest bone when my pain was growing day by day he was in a travel for 3 months and nobody cared. After 8 months of deadly bone pain, I got radiography. after a year, he said: I am sorry. we do not have any more option for you. go have some fun, see your family. you are going to .... AND JUST LEFT ME ALONE BY ALL MEANINGS.

He is a genuinely carrying doctor. He is direct with what is going on and help you to understand your options. Dr. Somer is a good listener not sitting at the edge of his seat as if he has a plane to catch. During trying times of major health challenges in having to deal with Cancer, Dr. Somer is the one to have at your bedside.

The office staff and assistants are wonderful, but Dr. Somer is HORRIBLE. Not only does he make you wait ALL day to see you, but when it is time for him to speak with you, he is too busy rushing out the door to listen to you. He lacks compassion and respect for his patients, and I used to dread going to his appointments. I finally wised up and switched doctors. I'd give him zero stars if possible.

Dr. Somer has been my oncologist for 6 years. I personally think he is the best. Cancer is a hard disease to deal with, but Dr Somer makes you feel at ease. He is the best and I would never go anywhere else. Stage 4 Colin cancer and going strong. Thank you to Dr Somer.
