Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Emami has been treating me for nearly 4 years. He was not only able to diagnose an odd bone disease for my age, but has also performed (2) successful lumbar surgeries since then. I am extremely impressed with Dr. Emami. He does not rush anything and doesn't give any false hopes. I am now 2.5...more
