Today, I find joy and fulfillment in cultivating the patient-physician relationship and improving people’s lives.”

Dr. Sorensen believes in the importance of engaging with each patient’s unique perspectives and goals to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Outside of work, Dr. Sorensen enjoys hiking and backpacking. He says that reconnecting with the natural world is how he stays balanced and grounded.
