You can't find a better Doctor for your ENT issues. Because of her knowledge and concern and commitment to her patiences my husband would still be waiting for his surgery on his ear cancer , that was inside of his ear. She is more than number 1 with us. O.S.

I would recommend Dr. Somers to anyone! She is the most excellent Doctor to talk to because she is such a wonderful listener. I truly feel like she heard my concerns, verified what was wrong, then she explained to me in detail what was needed to resolve our problem. Also her ability to convey what is needed for my child, to me and my child is unbelievable. Once you meet her you will be able to tell she loves what she does and she is genuinely looking for your best interest.

Dr Somers is great, my son is usually quite intimidated by the doctors office and she eased his fears. Very impressed
Petoskey, MI |
Dr Somers addressed my health issue and explained my condition. She recommended trying trying a non surgical way to take care of my problem. She took time with me, listened to me and alleviated my concerns. Dr Somers is patient, professional and has an upbeat manner. She is reassuring and resolved my immediate swollen nose and breathing problem. I got an appointment within 6 days after my fall on the ice. I am very grateful to her and her nursing staff. I have a follow up visit in a month.
