Dr. Somers is a very professional, energetic, and most importantly, a personable doctor.\n\nI met Dr. Somers when I visited him to have some very painful warts removed from my foot. Prior to my appointment with Dr. Somers I had visited another Podiatrist in Nashville who unfortunately only made the problem worse. \n\nBecause of my bad experience with another Podiatrist, I was apprehensive about my appointment with Dr. Somers. When I arrived at his office I immediately felt at ease with his friendly and professional staff members. Dr. Somers was very friendly, spent time explaining the options to me and made sure I was comfortable with the treatment plan. He was able to perform the procedure that day without having to schedule an additional appointment. Most importantly to me, the warts were finally gone and I have been pain free and wart free ever since. \n\nI have felt very confident in recommending Dr. Somers to both my elderly grandmother and my mother-in-law; I know he will provide them with the best foot care. \n\nFrom experience, choose Dr. Somers and the problem will be taken care of.

I had heard that Dr. Somers was an excellent podiatrist. He keep us waiting quite a long time, and when he did see my sister, he seemed like he was in a hurry and treated us with an offhand attitude. She is diabetic, and I was trying to give him some background, but he acted like he knew everything and only briefly glanced at her paperwork. When I tried to point out something about one of her big toes, he looked at me and said something like, ""Do you want to do this?"" How rude. He clipped her toenails like I've seen some vets clip a cat's or dog's toenails. He left the office fairly abruptly after saying we needed to come back in August. We will not be going back -- ever!

My parents just came by my office after visiting Dr. Somers for my 81-year old Mom's diabetic wound. He was busy trimming the dead skin off Mom's foot and asking Dad how he was caring for it. He told him he was using an antibiotic ointment, which was blessed by Mom's PCP, and shared other ways he was treating her wound, and the doctor asked my Dad ""Do you want to do this"" in an inflammatory way. Dad, of course told him no, but the doctor had other things to say in such a manner as to upset my Dad who went on to tell him he couldn't talk to him that way. Please understand, that my Mother is very frail, has dementia, is in a wheel chair and can't hear well. Dad has been her care giver for many years now and does an excellent job. Mom knew they were having words, but couldn't hear what was being said. The next thing that happened was that the doctor slapped a bandage on Mom's foot and walked out the door without another word. They didn't know the visit was over. Dad put Mom back in her wheelchair and opened the door and asked if they were done. They were told yes, but by now my Mom is in tears because of how Dad was abused. This doctor never told them how to treat the wound or made any recommendations about returning for further care, just ""walked out"". My Mom was still in tears one hour later....broke my heart. She is such a sweet gentle fragile woman. He was not the caring listener others have talked about, and I am very angry! I guess he just thought they were beneath him. I don't care who you are, you don't treat others like that...especially someone who is seeking you advice of life threatening issues. Shame on you Dr. Somers.

Dr. Somers performed bunion surgery on both my big and little toes in July, 2009. I returned to him several times complaining that I was still having pain and was unable to walk for more than an hour or so without severe pain. He made x-rays and said everything looked fine. I finally consulted another doctor who diagnosed Morton's neuroma and plantar fascitis. I believe these problems were caused by Dr. Somers's follow-up care after my surgery. I left the hospital wearing a rigid-soled shoe with an adjustable velcro closure. I wore this shoe for several weeks after the surgery since I couldn't wear regular shoes because of the swelling. Dr. Somers knew this as I was wearing it on my visits to him and told him I couldn't wear regular shoes, yet he failed to warn me that this could cause other problems. Later, when I continued to have pain, he did not diagnose either Morton's neuroma or plantar fascitis nor did he suggest other tests to determine the cause of the pain or offer any treatment. I've read the other positive reviews but I would advise choosing another doctor.

Pros: Location

Cons: Didn't diagnose common foot problems after surgery.

Caring, gentle, and MOST IMPORTANT the BEST at what they do. Dr. Somers removed BOTH bunions on my feet and there is NO scar - it's incredible and now I can walk, run and exercise all day with no pain. EVERY Hospital employee in Nashville will tell you this is the best foot/ankle surgeon in the Southeastern US.

Dr. Somers is awesome! He has treated me for 6 months. When nothing else helped, he operated.'\n\nHe has the best bedside manner. He tells it like it is. He really listens to you and he loves to joke around with you and have fun.\n\nHe even called me at home a few hours after my surgery to see if I was ok and to make sure I was eating. He gave my husband further instructions for my care.\n\nThe post op instructions were very clear.\n\nI recommend him to anyone who is having any foot troubles!
