I just had my first appointment with Dr. Sommer. Dr. Sommer is thorough, very patient, explains information to your understanding, listens to your concerns and compassionate. He exceeded my expectations and I would be glad to recommend him to others. I left my appointment feeling confident about him being my doctor, and most of all he gained my trust in his decision making and recommendations.
