New York, NY |
Dr. Sommers performed a lobectomy on my father. After the surgery was complete he spent 90 seconds explaining how the surgery went. Never saw him again. Sent in his NP, Jessica Bauman, who was rude & didn’t explain anything either. Took over a week to follow up with the results. At that time, they confirmed that the cancer was small cell. Later, the oncologist revealed that small cell lung cancer should NEVER be operated on and that surgery is harmful to treatment. Completely unethical.
I had part of my lung removed last year by Dr. Sommers. I saw him oh so briefly after my surgery and still groggy and disoriented. I had questions for him and though I would see him again. I didn't see him again during my hospital stay. I thought I would see him at my follow-up appointment. But again, no. I saw a N.P. I also have spinal issues. Sitting or standing for extended periods of time causes severe pain, which they were aware of. That is unacceptable. Good surgeon but poor scheduling.

While in the ICUl, his staff provided me with illogical and incorrect medical information as a basis for removing pain medication while I still had a chest tube and attempted again to discontinue my pain medication before removing the chest tube. The PA was rude and discounted my knowledge of my body and pain level. Dr. Sommers never followed up with me about my biopsy results. My post-op follow-up was rescheduled twice, and on the day of, I was made to wait over an hour before I just left.
