Great doctor.

The Somers is one of the best doctors I have ever come across, she deliver my first baby safely, she attentive and very knowledgeable. I made the worst decision changing obgyn because of distance and it’s the worst decision I ever made. I Had my second baby 4 weeks early with this new doctor. I am going back to doctor Somers for my third no matter how far I have to drive.

Busy doctor but thorough

Dr Somers knows what she's talking about and works on you very quickly and smoothly. However she is very busy so she doesn't have the time to really sit down and chat so have all your questions prepared mentally before you see her!

Two Stars

I had to make my appointment almost one year in advance. I asked the staff to call me in case of cacellation which never happend. I had to wait over two hours. One hour in waiting room and one hour in exam room. Nobody came to let me know what was going on. She is a good doctor though.

worth the wait

I have been going to Dr. somers for five years... she has delivered both of my children. She is an excellant doctor who takes her time with each patient and addresses all issues. She has even remembered things about my kids I honestly thought she would forget. The babies she delivers are like her children and her excitement to see them post pregnancy is refreshing. The wait can be long but is so worth it.
