Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Somers is wonderful! Pleasant, honest, skilled and compassionate. He did not try to push surgery on me as my previous MD did and did not try to force me to get the most expensive bifocal lenses. He was ethical and cautious, leaving all decisions up to me, after he explained all options and rationales in detail. He's a rock star!!

I have been going to Dr. Somers for years. I have my cataract surgery scheduled with him after the first of the year. I would not think of having anyone else do the surgery. I have complete confidence in Dr. Somers and I know he will take excellent care of me.
