January 13, 2017

A Sorenson is so kind and caring. I feel totally at ease in her presence and trust her completely with my care.

January 07, 2017

Over the years I've seen many dermatologists for various problems and never felt like I mattered. This provider genuinely cares about my well being.

December 23, 2016

PA Sorenson is friendly,knowledgeable, efficient...and a good aim. I have complete confidence in her.

December 12, 2016

Allyson was focused on the task at hand and provided a comfortable environment.

December 12, 2016

PA's visit notes say she spent 15 minutes talking with me about acne. Since I am not concerned about the acne there was very little discussion about it.

September 22, 2016

I have recommended Ally to all my friends.

September 11, 2016

the doctor is amazing! I would recommend her to anyone who would listen to me!

September 11, 2016

Allyson took the time to look at my skin and tell me actually what was wrong. she give me several options and explained all of them. She was so nice and friendly. I will now be looking forward to going to my appointments in the future.

September 11, 2016

my daughter is very very challenging emotionally and scared of needles. Ally is always incredibly patient with us!

September 03, 2016

I really like Ally Sorensen. She combines her professionalism and friendliness very nicely. I feel comfortable with her.

August 29, 2016

She was phenominal. She was very thorough and address many concerns in a short time, and also removed some moles that have been bothering me since she was taking off another one to be biopsied anyway. She was highly professional and helped me find a solution so I could afford my medication (the Retin-A product from your beauty store downstairs.) She is A+

August 20, 2016

This is the first meeting with this provider. I have to see if what she ordered and what she said turn out to be reliable before there is complete confidence.

August 17, 2016

I had an all-around great experience during this appointment. I felt well cared for and my concerns were addressed with professionalism and concern.

August 16, 2016

Great, Allison was friendly and easy to talk to.

August 15, 2016

The greatest experience that I could have had, THANK YOU

July 30, 2016

Very good.

July 23, 2016

My favorite doctor! She is extremely caring and knowledgeable! I look forward to my appointments wth her.

July 22, 2016

I was completely stunned how caring the visit felt, having many poor examples from other clinics.

July 04, 2016

Allyson is great! Fun personality and excellent knowledge of dermatology. Confident in her skills. Doesn't hesitate to make a diagnosis. helped me feel at ease. Showed empathy.

July 03, 2016

she was very kind, but didn't take the time to really offer any type of solution other than prescribing a medication she knew, and told me that my insurance wouldn't pay for. sure enough it was denied and is over five hundred dollars for the cream. I paid to see the doctor and I didn't receive any solid answer or treatment. it felt like a waste of time. again all those who attended me were very kind and empathetic. I appreciate that so much. in the end though, I accept to have a resolution or at least hope after seeing a doctor and I left with no answers and a prescription I could never afford, and that may or may not work. I was not given any answers or diagnosis.

July 03, 2016

the PA and staff, including student, were clear, helpful and efficient. it was almost like a party.

June 24, 2016

Really great experience for what is sometimes a not totally pleasant experience (mole check). Lovely person with a caring and knowledgeable manner.

May 31, 2016

She is a PA and I received better care than a Dr.

May 22, 2016

Always great medication counseling and suggestions for over-the-counter products like specific lotions/sunscreens. Very helpful!

May 15, 2016

I was vary happy with my diagnosis and treatment

May 12, 2016

I really like Allyson. I felt informed and included in my treatment decisions.

May 07, 2016

recommended her to my husband who has also been pleased with her care

April 29, 2016

Ally is an amazing Dr. Right from the start you felt she was interested in you and wanted to know how she could help. she is very pleasant and easy to talk with - puts you at ease.

April 15, 2016

Again, so kind. Everyone in the office was so sweet.

March 28, 2016

I already recommended her to my friend!

March 16, 2016

Great team work. In and out in a flash. Excellent care.

March 11, 2016

Allyson was fabulous. Great bedside manner and very knowledgeable. My problem is greatly improved since my visit because of her recommendations and care.

March 05, 2016

Aly Sorenson is fabulous! I do wish she had spent a little bit more time with me. I feel that the appointment was a little rushed. I ended up having to ask the MA some of my questions, and I do not feel very confident in her answers to my questions.

February 25, 2016

I couldn't ask for better care. Allie was extremely knowledgeable genuinely cared, made sure I was comfortable, and gave me great care. Exam was thorough. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

February 15, 2016

Ali is very caring and great at explanations. She was engaged the entire visit and I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend her to others.

February 12, 2016

I chose Ally specifically for my visit because I knew I would be comfortable with seeing her. She explained everything from what my diagnosis was, to the treatment, to how long it would take for the treatment to heal. She is always so friendly and I would highly recommend her!

January 13, 2016

Ally was fantastic. I feel confident in discussing all my concerns with her, she listened and provided great care and reassurance. I am grateful to have such great dermatologic care. Thank you!

January 11, 2016

Allyson is amazing. When she comes in the room does something, maybe by habit or unconsciously, she sits down and crosses her legs and looks right at me. This may be a small jesture but to me it says, I'm here for you and I have all the time in the world. This totally relaxes me and I actually feel like I am her only patient.

December 11, 2015

She was amazing! Best experience I've had as a new patient in a while. I would definitely recomend her to others.

December 10, 2015


December 09, 2015

The most amazing Doctor I've ever seen! So attentive, kind, knowledgeable. I will refer everyone to her and will never change doctors! Every time after I leave an appt with Alison, I go home and rave about her to my family! Couldn't say enough good things about her.

November 03, 2015

She couldn't remember the details.

October 28, 2015

July 17, 2015

July 17, 2015

I asked for info about sunscreen. Alyssa had good suggestions for me, good info, and I really liked that you had a store downstairs with samples. I bought some.

July 02, 2015

I was prescribed a certain medication but on the way to the pharmacy the PA gave it some more thought and changed the medication, which was a sign to me that she really thought about my particular issue and was concerned about me.

June 22, 2015

Allyson Sorensen was excellent. She through, patient in answering my questions and personable and professional. I would highly recommend her.

April 28, 2015

I don't love doctors or needles, but I loved this doctor and wasn't even scared when she used a needle. I felt safe and in very good hands.

April 10, 2015

I love this care provider and would recommend her to my friends. I can't say enough good thing about her.

December 27, 2014

Ally is one of the best providers at Westridge. She has been amazing to me and my family and we are broken-hearted to see her leave. The clinic will not be the same without her.

December 07, 2014

Again, ally is wonderful and I'm sad to see her go

December 05, 2014

February 21, 2014

Was Quick and Very Easy.

February 13, 2014

I had to come back a second time for the same illness. I think probably my illness progressed instead of a misdiagnosis but the thought did occur to me.

February 03, 2014

The best Dr or should say PA my mother has ever had.

January 30, 2014

I have recommended Two people....

January 25, 2014

I really appreciate the ability to be honest and frank. Alison doesn't sugar coat. I like how she is direct and honest. I find that I can ask her anything and will be provided a straight answer. I wish there were more doctors out there like her. She is also very personable. That isn't something that can be taught---especially in her line of work. She makes going to the doctors something that will brighten my day instead of dread.

January 21, 2014

Dr. Sorensen is thorough and professional in every way. I would recommend her highly to others.

Dr. Sorensen has always been a great listener, always shows she cares. Always includes me in the decisions, tells to me about options and let's me choose.

November 15, 2013

I really like her as a care provider and as someone who cares for me

November 11, 2013

My visit was pretty good. I felt like my concerns were heard and Ally S. really responded in a positive manner.

November 03, 2013

They seem to be very concerned with the amount of time scheduled for your appointments. Don't encourage you to remember things that you may have forgot before you got to your appointment. They need to remember that we don't know what questions to ask before we get there.

October 23, 2013

Ally was amazing! She genuinely cared about my problem and acted like a friend as well as a doctor. Best experience I have ever had at this clinic.

October 21, 2013

I LOVE Ally Sorensen. She was so good to me during such a difficult time. She made sure that I was well taken care of and that my illness was under control. She is so personable and easy to talk to. She gave me great advice and took such good care of me. I will most definitely recommend this provider to others. She was very confident and happy. It made me feel confident in her and her ability to make me feel better.

October 21, 2013

She did ask questions that I didn't want to hear. At first this did irritate me a little, but after thinking about it, I would prefer that she continue. I know it is my best interest, but it is a little hard to deal with, but if she hadn't of asked, I don't think I would go back to her. Because she did, it tells me she is concerned.

October 18, 2013

Ally was professional, friendly and competent. And, her treatment worked. I feel much better.

October 07, 2013

She was patient with a very cranky person

October 07, 2013

She was willing to work me in even though she has a heavy workload with my physician out on maternity leave.

September 19, 2013

I was very impressed with Dr. Sorensen and I told her so as I was leaving.

September 09, 2013

the PA was excellent. I haven't been to a doctor in years, she was great!

August 29, 2013

We love Dr. Flynn, Dr. Voo and Allyson (can't remember last name) everyone is so nice and understanding and full of wonderful information.

August 17, 2013

staff is great

July 16, 2013

This was my very first visit with Allyson and I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

June 25, 2013

Alli was so sweet. she made my questions and concerns seem important to her. i will definitely recommend her to anyone.

June 24, 2013

She did not tell us when to come back for his next wellness check up.

June 18, 2013

I've recommended her to everyone. She was very helpful and comfortable to work with. It was like talking to my close friend or sister.

June 17, 2013

I was really annoyed, I had three probs. to talk about and it was like pulling teeth to get just two things talked about.

June 10, 2013

Dr. Armstrong was patient, understanding & compassionate. I have been deal with odd health issues for 3 years now with a long list of issues. She listened carefully to my concerns & referred me to an appropriate specialist for additional review. I only recently switched to Dr. Armstrong after having numerous physicians shrug their shoulders & stare blankly at me after I went through my history, but Dr. Armstrong actually took the time to refer me to someone with greater expertise in the area of logical focus.
