Dr. Sorenson is an excellent surgeon. He performed gastric bypass on me and it has been wonderful. He is busy and does not waste a lot of time talking. But, he is quite pleasant and very responsive.

Saved my life and did amazing surgery on my bowels/intestines, when they were herniated, twisted, and dying, after a w/l revision surgery another practice did. He has excellent bedside manor and sat down and explained everything, answering all our concerns! I owe this man my life!

Dr. Sorensen performed a sleeve gastrectomy, and two days post-op, I am feeling remarkably well. The repair is very good, and he has been kind and has listened to my concerns. His staff is excellent at preparing patients for the surgery, and is a huge support to patients. I highly recommend him and am so grateful to him.
