what to do next, when & how often
Gregory R. Sonn D.O.
Dr. Sonn is a local physician who grew up in Fort Myers. He is duel boarded in family practice and palliative medicine. After graduating from Cypress Lake middle and Cypress Lake high schools he attended Florida Atlantic University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. While attending medical school at Kansas City Medical Bio-sciences he met his lovely wife Alisa. After completing his residency in family practice Dr. Sonn worked with a well-established primary care provider in Fort Lauderdale taking care of a large patient base. His work experience brought him to a large number of geriatric patients. As he followed these patients it became clear that they were underrepresented and in need of a dedicated physician.
These experiences paved the way for more education and study which eventually led to his secondary certification in palliative and hospice care. As his daughter Sara prepared for elementary school it became clear that a move to Fort Myers would be beneficial. Dr. Sonn has been working with Hope Healthcare Services since 2008. After more than a decade of caring for patients who suffered from chronic diseases a traditional medical practice using traditional medicines and therapies would not be sufficient for his health and well-being this began yet another journey of learning.
Dr. Sonn’s education and experiences in family practice and integrative medicine has given him a great knowledge base of complimentary and alternative medicines. Couple this with a decade plus a palliative care using conventional treatments he is in the ideal physician for you! He is excited to be able to legally prescribe or “recommend” legal forms of Cannaboids to his patient in need. A firm believer in medical marijuana Dr. Sonn hopes the law makers of Florida further support patients right and allow further deregulation. Presently there are still restrictions on the type strength and route of medicine his patients can and do receive.
