Dr. Summer Engler is one of the most pleasant positive doctors that I've known. Alaska is very fortunate to have a doctor, of her caliber. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate, organized, honest, and a good listener. I always look forward to appointments, with her. She always responds to questions, with sound advice. She has a positive demeanor and thoroughly goes over her patient's lab work.
