For William Sonnier, M.D., his career as a gastroenterologist is not one he takes lightly.

“My personal experience with being diagnosed at age 17 with inflammatory bowel disease ultimately led to my interest in gastroenterology,” he said. “I have a special insight into the lives of patients living with inflammatory bowel disease because I have experienced both the patient and the provider side of this diagnosis.”

Currently serving as assistant professor of internal medicine at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and a gastroenterologist at the USA Health Digestive Health Center, Sonnier said he is excited to join USA Health. “I completed my fellowship at USA Health, so I know firsthand the many great things the division is known for,” he said. “My goal is to expand the care we provide to patients with complex inflammatory bowel disease through novel treatment methods and participation in clinical trials.”

Sonnier earned his medical degree from the USA College of Medicine 2013. He then completed his residency training in internal medicine at UAB, and his fellowship in gastroenterology at USA Health.

He is accepting new patients. To make an appointment, call (251) 660-5555.
