February 29, 2016

Dr. Somers is always very caring and understanding when I come in. I am always happy to schedule an appointment with her because I feel she is vested in my well being. I appreciate her and her staff and feel that I have made an excellent choice in trusting her for my healthcare needs.

February 24, 2016

This was my first visit to Dr. Somers. I felt very well taken care of. I was there to establish care for a new PCP and I feel very confident that I have made the right decision for me. Everyone from the staff that called to go over my history before my apt to the assistant that checked my BP the day of was excellent.

February 24, 2016

Provider is so kind!

February 22, 2016

My experiences with Dr. Somers and her staff are always exceptional. They are professional yet friendly and I indeed have recommended Dr. Somers to my friends!

February 21, 2016

I will absolutely recommend Dr. Alexis Somers to others. She put me at ease. I thought she was thourough and took time with me. Fantastic! My sister also commented very favorable--telling me that she feels really confident that she is a good Dr.

February 09, 2016

Have recommended Dr. Sommers. This Friday she's seeing a new patient because of the good care she gave me

February 03, 2016

I always recommend Dr Somers. She is absolutely wonderful!! I feel that she really cares and that makes a huge difference! And of course I think she's brilliant!

February 01, 2016

very nice doctor and nurses

February 01, 2016

I really liked Dr Somers! She was very thorough and listened well to all concerns. She answered all questions asked with concern and care.

January 14, 2016

The doctor showed genuin concern and positivity that it will be sorted out. I left feeling happy that we were working together to solve the issue

January 11, 2016

I asked my provider if they were comfortable managing my thyroid medications now that they have been stable for a year, they said yes. My blood results indicated my TSH was low and my provider has not commented on that despite my asking via email. Not sure I dare stop going to my endorcinologist to manage my thyroid.

January 08, 2016

She took my values and concerns into consideration

December 10, 2015

it's been since Monday, it's now Thursday night and I haven't been contacted with any results. The Dr seemed to be as confused as I was with my pain and recommended a whole suite of care, but I haven't heard anything on the blood draw or x-Rays taken. luckily the pain went away on its own.

December 05, 2015

Love Dr Somers! I'm sad to be moving out of state because I know I won't find another doctor like her!!

November 24, 2015

Dr. Sommers is an excellent doctor, she was able to pin point what was going on with me and prescribe appropriate medications that have helped me to get well. After being sick since the beginning of October is is wonderful to be back to normal again!

November 17, 2015

Dr. Summers was very professional.

November 13, 2015

I think Dr. Somers is grand!

November 13, 2015

Would recommend her any time

November 11, 2015

Liked her a lot. She was a little rushed so I felt lie I had to stop her several times so I could get my questions in but it could have been because she knew the lab was closing and wanted to get me in before it closed.

November 09, 2015

I love Dr. Somers. She is very friendly, caring, and attentive.

November 02, 2015

We discussed several things in the appointment and the care provider failed to follow up with me. She said she would order a specific blood test but then forgot to do so, so when I never received the result I had to call back and remind her assistant at which point I had to make another trip to get my blood drawn. She didn't explain any of the results and even though I called several time and asked to speak with the doctor every time an assistant would call me back.

November 02, 2015

Dr. Somers is efficient, balances the human component with the health technological aspect.

October 31, 2015

My greatest concern with our insurance change was losing our PCP. We had been w/ him for 11 years and loved him! I heard about Dr. Somers from 2 different people so I made an appt w/ her after returning from Mexico. (Side note: Never eat in Mexico!). I'm happy to report Dr. Somers exceeded my expectations in all areas! She's professional, competent, courteous, and kind! I highly recommend Dr. Somers!

October 31, 2015

seemed rushed. Had to force in my questions so she didnt walk out before i was done asking.

October 22, 2015

I appreciate the physician. she was informative, understanding, and had a clear plan of action. I see a long term relationship with dr

October 21, 2015

Dr. Somers is the best!

October 19, 2015

I asked office to give me a vit D panel and when I got there for blood test it wasn't ordered. Lab had to call office to order it. Also I had foot pain and Dr. Somers ordered an MRI, but she didn't examine my foot to see where pain was so hoping coding is correct for MRI I'm going to get done. I did point to part of foot but usually doctors examine area and she did not.

October 12, 2015

Point blank, Dr. Summers is great. She truly cares about her people. She took very good care of me.

October 09, 2015

I loved the the entire staff. They were so wonderful.

October 04, 2015

Good all around.

September 28, 2015

This was the first time I had met Dr. Somers. All of my other Dr's. have gone somewhere else and I have had to find a new Doctet. Dr Somers is exactly the kind of Doctor I am looking for. She is very comfortable to talk to. She is also very thorough and caring. Exactly what I want in my doctor.

September 28, 2015

Really liked Dr Somers. Looking for a primary care Dr.

September 25, 2015

I would recommend Dr. Somers to anyone! She is the best!

September 22, 2015

she is always very helpful and provides many treatment options for me

September 16, 2015

Dr Somers always takes the time to listen to me an answer all my questions. I am so glad I chose her as my PCP. I Also like that she spends one on one in the room with me .

September 11, 2015

I have already referred several friends to Dr Somers. She is an excellent provider and we will continue to bring our entire family to see her.

September 11, 2015

I really like and trust Dr. Somers. She addressed all my concerns and has me back on the road to better health.

September 07, 2015

She took into consideration that I did not want to be hooked on a medication, and that my husband and I wanted to try and have a kid in the next very few months. I asked to have something that would be safe to take prior to getting pregnant and she was very helpful and understanding of this big concern that I have.

September 03, 2015

after being diognosed with diabetes,i would have liked to be given more info. about what to do,what i should or shouldnt eat and so on.

August 31, 2015

They were having a busy day, so I understand things will take a little longer. The only thing is I didn't really feel like the doctor really cared when she was helping me. I understand if you are busy but I still think you should take the time to focus 100% on the patient you are with when you are with them, and I didn't feel that with her. She seemed rushed and I didn't really feel like she was really listening to me. She prescribed me something very quickly and I felt like it was just to get me out of there. I asked about side affects with the medication and she said only that it will make me a little groggy, but when getting the medication I found a list of side effects. Interestingly enough the side effects are symptoms that I was already having that I wanted to get rid of.

August 25, 2015

She was great, she seemed to focus on my issues.

August 25, 2015

Thank you for your time/care Dr. Somers!

August 25, 2015

Alexis is super personable but she was so rushed at this appointment. This was an appointment set to revisit and reassess my medical situation and i only got to mention a few of the things we needed to go over and that was only because i called her back, despite the fact that i was still on the table under the drape, on her way out the door as if she were done. I specifically scheduled a longer appointment so we would have time to go over things but only saw the doctor for the amount of time a prescription refill appointment would provide. Very frustrating. She also told me several times, "just email me about that" which i tried to do the following week, but rather than her responding to the email as was done in the past, i just got a response telling me to "make an appointment and come in" signed by "the office of dr. sommers" These things combined with another frustrating visit before has made me start to look for a new doctor.

August 20, 2015

Dr. Sommers is great. Always friendly and will answer any questions you have. Great experience.

August 14, 2015

This was my first visit with Dr. Sommers and I was very impressed. She listened intently to me, addressed my questions and didn't look anxious about the time she was spending with me.

August 09, 2015

Alexis is amazing, she is a great provider and made me feel comfortable. I am really glad a found a new provider who is knowledgable and nice at the same time.

July 31, 2015

dr simmers was phenominal

July 27, 2015

I have never felt so confident in a healt care provider like I do with Alexis Sommers.

July 27, 2015

Please see my comment on previous page. I felt the were genuinely concerned for my well being, comfort, and wanted to make sure everything was covered and that I left getting the best care possible. I felt very well taken care of.

July 18, 2015

DR. SOMER'S WAS SO GOOD TO WORK WITH. I WAS HAVING SOME REAL ISSUES WITH MY HEALTH AND SHE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB IN GETTING MY TREATMENT TO ADDRESS MY PROBLEM

July 13, 2015

Such a wonderful experience that I'm going to send my daughter in for her physical to see Dr. Somers

July 13, 2015

I told this Dr. that I could hear gurgling in my lungs/chest when laying down but she never listened to my lungs. I was disappointed with this lack of attention.

June 27, 2015

Dr Sommers is simply fantastic. I could not be happier with her care.

June 15, 2015

dr. Somers was great. I liked her so much that I have decided to use her as my PCP

June 15, 2015

thrilled that I changed primary care providers!

June 11, 2015

I was a walk-in having an asthma flare and was accomodated into a very busy schedule.

May 22, 2015

Dr.Somers takes time to be caring.

May 19, 2015

I have been to several doctor's in the past year. Dr. Somers is the only Doctor I have seen that actually listened to all of my issues without yelling out a diagnosis in the middle of me explaining my symptoms. Very grateful to find A doctor willing to listen to you instead of assuming they know what is going on before walking in your room.

April 29, 2015

I am so grateful & very impressed. It's not like I have life threatening issues but certainly frustrating (recurring) issues, especially when not addressed properly. I am soooo impressed. So impressed!! So grateful.

April 24, 2015

Very personable, caring, and kind.

April 19, 2015

Dr. Somers is a doctor who truly cares.

April 18, 2015

Somers and her staff are wonderful

April 18, 2015

I LOVE Dr. Somers!

April 15, 2015

Hands down the best medical experience I have ever had.

April 14, 2015

Due to the onset of bronchitis it was necessary to obtain medicine as soon as possible. My current PCP requested by mail that I locate an alternate PCP which the Health Care operator was able to get an appointment with Dr. Sommers. The visit went very well and hope that in the future if visits occur I will be able to suggest Dr. Sommers as a PCP.

April 10, 2015

I am always treated respectfully by staff and Doctor.

March 28, 2015

Dr Somers is always amazing.

March 28, 2015

The most a provider has ever listened to me and shown real concern. She genuinely wanted me to feel better.

March 26, 2015

I particularly appreciated additional information on how to lessen the side effects of medication and not feeling bad that I had stopped taking for awhile due to side effects.

March 23, 2015

I had never had moles removed before so I was a little uneasy about what would happen and how it would go. Dr Somers did an amazing job and made me extremely comfortable.

March 14, 2015

Dr. Somers is truly a caring and informative doctor. I'm definitely staying with her!

March 10, 2015

Like I stated previously, Dr Somers is the absolute best and yes I have been recommending her like crazy, I love you Dr. Somers!!

March 06, 2015

I was so nervous but she eased all my worries and was genuinely concerned about me.

March 06, 2015

I really appreciate the kindness of Dr. Somers, the assistant, and receptionists. They were very easy to speak with and were the most helpful medical personnel I've ever been to. Their professional and friendly manner gave me confidence and trust in them.

February 23, 2015

Dr Somers has always been good at listening to my needs. I would trust her with my children. She is always polite and concerned about me. I love her!

February 08, 2015

Somers is absolutely wonderful such a caring provider

February 07, 2015

Great care!

February 05, 2015

Other than the fact she was not the right Dr. to treat my symptoms, she was awesome. I would like to consider her my family practitioner.

January 12, 2015

Dr Somers was very sweet, caring, and understanding. I would recommend her to everyone.

January 12, 2015

already have recommended Dr. Somers to my daughter and her family

January 10, 2015

Dr Somers always makes me feel that I am listened to and am an active participant in my health care

January 07, 2015

Dr Somers and her staff have been phenomenal. As someone who doesn't like going to the Dr, but absolutely has to, the experience of switching providers caused some anxiety. However, Dr Somers is very nurturing, warm and kind. I would use the same words to describe her staff. They are all also knowledgeable and very responsive to my questions/concerns as well.

December 30, 2014

Dr. Somers is now my primary care provider because she is the most compassionate MD I've ever had. She listens to me and never seems rushed or overwhelmed.

December 30, 2014

Dr. Summers was great!

December 28, 2014

Dr. Somers was amazing. She saw me immediately after I arrived, and she addressed all of my concerns with both diligence and efficiency. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends. The South Jordan Clinic is very fortunate to have her working there.

December 21, 2014

I think Dr. Somers is great for me

December 17, 2014

I will recommend this clinic and Dr. to everyone.

December 17, 2014

Great person!

November 17, 2014

We love Dr. Somers!

November 13, 2014

I've found in the past that it is not good to recommend individual docs. I will always recommend UU and Daybreak, but I would suggest each person find-a-doc themselves.

October 23, 2014

I think Dr. Somers works with Dr. Johnson. They are both good

October 16, 2014

Dr somers does a fantastic job. I often have job related paper work for her to fill out, she gets it done right away and I really appreciate it.

October 16, 2014

Dr. Alexis took the time to address each concern, spoke to me with compassion and dignity. I actually felt like a person and not just another number on a long list of patients. I honestly could not stop commenting throughout the day on how impressed I was with my visit.

October 14, 2014

excellent!

October 12, 2014

I could not ask for a better provider Alexis Somers is wonderful

October 06, 2014

We very much like everything about the Day Break facility, professional staff and the consolidation of services all in one place.

September 29, 2014

Love Dr Somers. She is very knowledgeable as well as very kind, caring, and friendly!

September 29, 2014

Dr Somers is the best doctor I have ever seen!

September 28, 2014

great experience

September 24, 2014

Preciously explained.

September 22, 2014

Dr. Somers went way beyond the minimum getting me the information I needed to complete visa requirements for a mission to Fiji. She was warm, thorough, encouraging, and a delight. Wish she was my permanent provider. ( I live out-of-state).

September 21, 2014

excellent!

September 05, 2014

Dr. Somers is great

September 01, 2014

I diagnosed myself. I said I had a yeast infection, tried to treat it over the counter without success so she gave me a prescription for medication. She did not exam me, which concerned me.

August 27, 2014

Have already recommended Dr Somers to my husband and son, who have since listed her as their PCP.

August 27, 2014

Alexis Somers is very knowledgeable and personable. She is a great doctor. I'd recommend her to anyone.

August 24, 2014

Dr. Somer's is great, shows a lot of concern for her patients.

August 22, 2014

Dr. Sommers acted as if I was the only patient and it makes me want to keep coming back.

August 15, 2014

Alexis is an amazing doctor!! She spent the time with me that I needed. I will reccommend her to everyone.

August 15, 2014

I LOVE DR. Alexis Somers. I feel like she really cares!

July 29, 2014

Dr. Somers is amazing! I felt so comfortable and taken care of. I will def see her again!

July 19, 2014

Dr Somers was excellent. I totally felt good about my visit with her. She showed great concern about me and my care. There were things I wondered why they hadn't been done in the past and before I asked her she asked me why hadn't this been done? I have great confidence in her. She is a great Doctor and again I totally trust her with my care and my family's care.

July 18, 2014

Dr. Somers is a great person, she really cares about you. I live in Tooele, but I asked Dr. Somers if she would be my primary doctor from now on. Totally worth the drive.

June 29, 2014

I think Dr. Somers is wonderful!

June 29, 2014

I LOVE Dr. Somers!

June 27, 2014

I felt Dr Somers was and is great!

June 26, 2014

I was surprised by the diagnose that was printed on the sheet I was given. There were things listed there that the doctor and I did not discuss.

June 09, 2014

Received excellent service from the Dr. Was very thorough and answered all my questions and concerns.

May 23, 2014

She was great! So happy with the visit, everything was wonderful and I am so glad I found a PCP that made me feel so comfortable.

May 12, 2014

I felt like a person with this doctor

May 09, 2014

dr sommers is great she makes me feel like she really cares and always addresses all my questions

April 28, 2014

Dr. Somers is an amazing doctor. I had to get a new doctor from the rest of my family and I have been pleased with her work. She is very kind every time I visit and always takes care of my needs. She explains so I understand and is always willing to work with me when something comes up. I have enjoyed getting to know her.

April 24, 2014

DR SOMERS IS THE BEST

April 23, 2014

Dr. Somers is great!

April 10, 2014

Dr. Amy Somers was excellent!!! I would have to hesitation in recommending her to anyone. We will be back to the clinic for our child's future visits (as well as our own). Our previous provider at the clinic is still there as well so it will be up to my child as to which provider we see. Either way, it will be a good choice.
