Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Emrani "We take pride in offering 'concierge medicine' without the extra costs. Most urgent calls can be triaged and patients seen in a very timely manner. Whenever possible, we avoid invasive procedures as well as hospitalization. Infact, for the large volume of patients seen in our practice, we rarely admit to the hospital. This is the result of hard work and aggressive preventive measures that are oriented to keeping our patients healthy and independently functional."

Patient Comments (2)

From my experience, one could not hope to find a nicer, more attentive, knowledgeable, caring, personable and considerate doctor, support professionals, staff, and office environment. Also noteworthy is that his referrals are of the same caliber.

He saw me for less than 5 minutes while he made sure he was posting articles to his Facebook page! Would not recommend him or ever step foot in his office again. He only cares about getting paid an glorifying his name.
