Dr. Sonderling is the BEST. He is caring. You are NEVER rushed. My colonoscopy was a breeze. As soon as I woke up his bright smile was there to reassure me that all went well. His office staff is ALWAYS courteous. I've been using Dr. Sonderling for over 20 years. There is none better.

Doctors nowadays don't study beyond what they learned as residents. In order to be a good Doctor in the extend of the word, they need to be open minded and investigate patient's conditions and symptoms in order to understand and come to an accurate diagnosis. If Doctors don't do this and just sit there and act robotic, then they are not helping at all. A Doctor never stop informing themselves - Never.

Dr. Sonderling is extremely committed to his patients. He is a professional and knowledgeable gastroenterologist. He follows up every diagnostic and gets the treatment the patient requires. In my particular case, I required surgery. He not only consulted with my surgeon but continued to call until he was certain that I would see the surgeon very promptly impressing upon him his professional opinion of urgency. In every aspect Dr. Sonderling was committed to me as a patient and to my care.
