The best Doctor I've ever had

Ever since I've moved away from Providence I have been largely dissatisfied with every Doctor I've met. I have had top-shelf medical care by Dr. Sommerville and it has raised my expectations for others in the profession! Dr. Sommerville's bedside manner, general style of doctoring and her professionalism even at awkward or uncomfortable moments is something I very much appreciated in a general practitioner and I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone.

Excellent Doctor

I truely like Dr. Sommerville because she takes an interest in you not as a "case study" like some do, but as a person with a real issue that you need resolved. I have seen her for ~ 10 years and I don't want to think about the time when I would need to change main doctors.

SNAPS

She cannot handle patients who are chronically ill. Snaps at them for being sick. Not my idea of of who a good Doctor should be. If your not so sick you are the lucky one.
