I highly recommend this doctor, she was my surgeon for my bilateral ovarian cyst surgery, an extremely complex procedure as I had a big cyst which had to be done with supreme precision to save my ovaries. Dr. Sommers did the robotic surgery and the procedure took 4 hours and after the procedure she was able to completely remove the cyst without harming my ovaries. Today I am so thankful to this doctor as after the procedure, I could become a mom and am now blessed with 2 children.

The doctor was out of network and said they would work with us. We had a high deductible and sent us to the most vile collection agency there is and destroyed my wife's credit and sent her into depression STAY AWAY if not fully covered. She will ruin your life.
