Dr. Sommer White, MD, IFMCP

Dr. Sommer White, M.D., IFMCP, is a certified functional medicine doctor with an extensive and diverse clinical experience. Dr. Sommer is specialized in finding and addressing the root cause of complex conditions by combining conventional and alternative medicine principles. Dr. Sommer tailors a personalized plan based on each patient’s unique needs to promote natural healing and improve degenerative and acute conditions.

My Desire is to help people. It was this desire that took me to Nepal for the Peace Corps, directed me to the path of medicine as an emergency physician to quickly relieve people of acute pain, and later as an alternative medicine and functional medicine doctor.

I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them heal at a deep level.
