in Lawrenceville, NJ |
Dr. Somer is extremely knowledgeable and competent. He is also very caring and will listen to your concerns and answer all your questions. I consider myself very fortunate to have had him as my Doctor for the past 8 years.
in Bluefield, VA |
I can not say enough of how grateful that I had found Dr. Somer. From the first day to the day I had to move, I will never meet another doctor like him. (Trust me, been looking) the first day I met him, I was a mess. My world had changed and I really didn't want to accept it. He was so patient and he sat with me for as long as I needed. He explained things and if I didn't understand, he explained so I could. I am so grateful and blessed that I found him. If you do read this THANK YOU SO MUCH.
