Honest, caring trustworthy. Great bedside manner. Puts you at ease. So thankful he is my doctor.
We are happy to hear that you had a wonderful experience! I will be sure to share your feedback with the appropriate care team. Sincerely, Annamaria

Dr, Summers was great. He took time to listen and explained all options that were available. He took the time to rule out unnecessary procedures. His bed side manner was great!

Dr. Summers was terrible. He spent 24 hours with me while I was in labor. He has awful bedside manner and ultimately made several decisions that led my newborn to be in the NICU for 3 days when he was born. He is rude and condescending. I would never trust him to be around myself or my child again. Avoid him at all costs!

I felt uncomfortable, belittled, & rushed. My experience with previous late miscarriage & anxiety was brushed aside, & his bedside manner during an internal exam was atrocious. I spent an hour waiting for him to show up at the exam room & left the building in tears.
