Dr. Samuel C Somers has the following 2 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.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Had Dr Somers do a colposcopy recently (my first) and I wanted to see what was going on so I skipped the sedation/anesthesia. Dr Somers had no problem with this and made helpful suggestions about relaxing, not holding my breath, etc. It was a breeze, no pain at all, a couple of minor feelings of bloatedness and then it was over. He ID'd all of the "points of interest" along the way (liver, appendix, valve to small intestine, etc) and I got to see him snare and remove one small polyp. The only slightly annoying thing was having to wait in the recovery area for 40 minutes (twice as long as the actual procedure) before they'd let me go. I felt 100% fine and wanted to GO AND EAT! Got biopsy results in the mail about a week later (hyperplastic, not a problem).
