Dr. Soma is the doctor you feel grateful to have as your doctor in the fight of your life! His humility and total attention to what you are asking, and sharing what is/has been happening with you since your last visit. He is so sharp...and explains things clearly and defined....doesn't overwhelm, yet is throughly and asks if you have any questions about what he's explained.
