What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Sonnenschein, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Sonnenschein’s “care” is one of the reasons my sister is dead. She spent all of 2018 severely depressed - it was her 5th major depressive episode. And yet, he thought there was no reason to move aggressively. The first 2 times she attempted to hurt herself this year were right after he told my parents they could go out of the country on vacation. Fortunately, they knew more than he did. The 3rd time, he didn’t demand or even suggest inpatient care. And the 4th time was the end. Great job!

Very compassionate, non judgmental. Had to wait awhile before I could get an appointment, but that's probably because everyone wants to see him because he's a good doctor. Took my lab results into consideration and referred me to an Endocrinologist for further evaluation. Highly recommended by other physicians I have seen.

Dr. Sonnenschein has been my son's provider for around 14 years. My son is autistic. Dr. Sonnenschein is very knowledgeable about what medications work for those on the autism spectrum. Between working with both this doctor and some very good Behaviorist, my son is doing well. Dr. Sonnenschein is very empathetic and respectful of patients and their families. KPG does not take Medicaid, so we do pay out of pocket.

He takes extra time when we need it and he does a great job of listening and explaining in detail when medication changes are necessary.
