One of my favorite doctors ... just has a great sense of humor, spends sufficient time... never feel hurried. He wanted to know about me a patient and person... I really feel he cares about his patients. His decisions and recommendations are spot on. He is easy (in comparison) to get into even...more

Dr. Sommerfeld is by far the best primary doctor I have ever had. He is very thorough, lets you know all options, and has a great sense of humor. Northshore University Health System has great doctors, both myself and family have always received 5 Start treatment.
