Dr. Emblem and his staff including admissions and lab were outstanding. I will and have recommended he and the hospital facility. It was the best decision I made in getting the surgery for my rotator cuff. I had always heard it would be very painful but it absolutely was not. I have to say the whole experience was like one well oiled machine.

Dr. Emblom and his staff were WONDERFUL!! We live in Georgia and when our teenage son had a football injury, we looked for the BEST. Our experience could not have been any better!! From pre-op to surgery to rehab to post-op, we were thrilled with our son’s care and his recovery!!

Personally I think Dr. Emblom wrote these positive reviews himself. Sure didn't take care of me. Almost died from his neglect.

Very satified with Dr. Emblom. Was told by 2 other doctors I needed immediate surgery on my shoulder. He felt I could wait and that's what I have done. Will see him if it becomes more of a problem in the future

My experience with Dr. Emblom was quite good. The surgery was successful and renewed the strength in my shoulder. He should, however, caution his patients that a FULL recovery takes a year, not 6 months. Healing continues for a full year, and expecting a full recovery sooner can be discouraging. Tim Thomas

I would recommend Dr. Emblom to any one needing Orthopedic care or Surgery. Dr. Emblom put my shoulder & Biceps tendon back together almost two years ago, today its like I never had surgery my arm, and shoulder are as strong as they were when I was 20 years old. My experience at Andrews Sports Medicine & St. Vincent's was world class. In the future if I need any Orthopedic care I will for sure return to Dr. Emblom.

Dr. Emblom replaced my left knee. I am very satisfied with the care that he provided. The attention that he gave to each of my questions made me feel that he was concerned about what I was feeling and the progress I was making.
