Dr. Larry A Sonna has the following 3 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

dr. sonna is the type of dr that will talk to you on your level~ hes the kind of dr you wanna be friends with! I nearly died in havasu. he talked to me about anything and everything while I was in the icu~ while he had other patients to attend to he never rushed our conversations~ when I was informed he was no longer @ havasu regional I was told to look him up~ and while I am stuck in the stone age @ the young age of 32 I absolutely despise computers~ but he was worth it for me to look up!!!!
I had been to two doctors before being referred to Dr. Sonna. Both said they couldn't help me. Dr. Sonna spent time with me, and talked to me about what he thought was wrong, what tests I'd need, and what options I had. Very caring...didn't seem interested in pushing "pills and bills". Would highly recommend.
