Insightful and caring. Has a dry sense of humor, but clear he cares. Had second opinion somewhere else and they agreed with his treatments. Love his staff, nurses and secretaries are very kind and helpful.

I would not go to this clinic nor would I choose Dr. Scott Sommers for a family member with cancer. He follows a robotic protocol. He has the bedside manner of a mortician. This Doctor appears totally unaware of natural ways to help cancer patients. I'm convinced my father would still be alive if he had not been aggressively treated with chemo and radiation.
