Dr Sorensen is an expert on ankles, is easy to talk to, and listens well.
Dr. Sorensen & all associates I've encountered have been very accommodating. They even squeezed me into his already busy schedule on my first visit. I highly recommend the Weil Foot & Ankle Institute & in particular, Dr. Matthew Sorensen. He is calm, cool & collected. He actually seems to listen! I know...impressive!
Very impressed with Dr. Sorensen and the people who work with him. They answered all my questions and made sure I felt comfortable with their recommendations.
