Great Experience

My experience with Dr. Sommer and The New York Bariatric Group has been great. My surgery was very successful, and Dr. Sommer was terrific from the initial consultation to post op appointments. The process from my commitment to after surgery has been well organized, and the staff is helpful as well. I would do it all again!

General Surgery

Upon speaking with several of his patients, I felt very confident that Dr. Sommer would do an excellent job with my Cholecystectomy. Once I met with Dr. Sommer, I felt like an individual patient that truly mattered. The surgery went much better than I could have imagined and the small incisions are healing wonderfully. I recommend Dr. Sommer to anyone whom needs a General Surgery or are looking into bariatric surgery.
