as is so often the case, I love the doctor but hate the long wait to check in and check out and the wait for the doctor is interminable, made worse by a constantly crowded waiting room.

arrogant doctor

This doctor thinks he is Gods gift to psychiatry. He seems like he has a darker side than his patients and seems to be VERY money hungry.

Love the doc, hate the staff AND the waiting room!

Dr. Sommers is an outstanding doctor,but I really dread appointments with him. His waiting room is TINY and tv is always on with the volume turned way up. I try to sit out in the hallway whenever possible. The folks that check you in and check you out have zero personality and act as though they couldn't care less if you ever came back. And the wait time is at least half an hour, sometimes significantly longer. I understand that docs occasionally have emergencies that push appointments back. But EVERYtime indicates a systemic problem.

While Dr. Sommers is a cut above other psychiatrists, the office atmosphere is very discouraging, depressing, and embarassing. Staff rudeness appears to be acceptable. While the majority of patients with mental illness would prefer to remain somewhat anonymous, they are crammed in a tiny waiting room with a steady line of patients checking in and out, having to turn sideways to allow them to pass by. The patient is then paraded through the middle of the office staff, who readily display a lack of care for the patients or show any pride or professionalism in their job. A competent office manager is needed for the employees, and an in-depth look into the discomforts of patients by the below standard staff and facility should be conducted by the owners. Right now, no one, cares about the comfort, both physically and emotionally, of the patient. Money is the biggest concern there, not the patient. I left the practice because of this.

What a change in my life

I have many problems. I found reassurance and a feeling of calmness and safety during my med-check times with him. He does not question what my therapist talk about, but just confirms that I am going. He is extremely careful about the medication he prescribes. He explains in great detail how the medication works during brain activity. I am so blessed that he is in my life.
