Dr. Sornberger graduated from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, Maine in 2003.  He received a Bachelors in Science from Villanova University, in Pennsylvania in 1995.

He completed a Family Medicine Residency Program at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine.  Prior to that he did a one-year long internship in Pediatric Medicine at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.  After completing the Family Medicine Residency, Dr. Sornberger completed a plus one year in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) also at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

Dr. Sornberger is board certified in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) through the American Osteopathic Association and the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians. 

For the last 10 years, Dr. Sornberger worked at Brewer Medical Center seeing patients both as a family medicine doctor and also for OMT procedures as a specialist type of physician.  Dr. Sornberger has an affinity for treating sports related injuries.

Because Dr. Sornberger is an athletic person, as an avid 4 season bicyclist and avid outdoors person, he was able to recognize and treat many muscle, bone, ligament and joint injuries for the last 10 years.

Ten years has passed, his medical student loans have now finally been paid off (thanks to where he worked), Dr. Sornberger saw this as an opportunity to make the change into forming a private Osteopathic Medical Practice in Bangor where he could focus on what he enjoys most.  Dr. Sornberger is the owner of Form and Function Osteopathic Medicine of Bangor.

Dr. Sornberger now can settle down into a private medical practice that focuses on the individual.  With office visits up to 60 minutes long, Dr. Sornberger can assess and treat the structural problems, muscle aches and joint ailments you have. 

The Osteopathic Physician however has the ability to go back to the roots of medicine.  Osteopaths are trained different.  Osteopaths are trained to use their hands to diagnose and treat illness.  Osteopaths are using the greatest medicine ever known- the power of the hand, the power of touch.  When an osteopathic Physician uses his hands, he is seeing, he is thinking, he is feeling, he is hearing, he is listening.  All the senses are activated- sight, hearing, sensing, and touch.  And then the patient reaps the reward of getting better.
