I took my 14 year old son to see Dr. Songer for a shoulder injury. Our wait time was less than what I expected. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Songer came in and told us that my son had a fractured arm. He was very kind and explained everything to my son, which made him feel more involved. At the end Dr. Songer asked if I had any questions, which I did not because he had gone over everything already. Wonderful experience. I would recommend him to everyone.

I WOULD DEFINITLEY RECOMMEND DR. SONGER AND HIS STAFF. HE IS A GREAT DOCTOR. I BROKE MY TIBIA AND FIBULA AND HAD TO HAVE SURGERY HE PUT A PLATE ON THE OUTSIDE AND SCREWS ON THE INSIDE. HE AND HIS STAFF ARE AWESOME. IF I HAD TO HAVE SURGERY AGAIN I WOULD DEFINITELY CHOOSE HIM. HE EXPLAINED EVERYTHING HE DID AND ALWAYS HAS A GREAT BED SIDE MANNER. HE CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS.
