I had a very bad experience with Dr. Somers. She was pleasant but as a medical professional I thought she was below par. She misdiagnosed me with a rare disorder which caused me much anxiety-no differential diagnosis discussed. She developed and discussed the treatment plan for this rare disorder before even receiving the pathology report which showed the diagnosis was a common disorder. Hundreds of dollars for unsatisfactory care and caused me physical (biopsy) and emotional (anxiety) stress.

Dr. Somers was great. Spent time explaining my surgery as well as great follow up. She did a remarkable job with the stitches and left barely a trace she was there. Highly recommended.
