Brilliant Orthopedic. He has completed 9 major surgeries for me and my immediate family. I would highly recommend him and his staff. They treat you like a Rock Star!!
I went to 2 doctors who couldn't figure out what was wrong with my hip according to my scans, and it took Dr. Emblom all of 2 minutes to get my diagnosis. Surgery and recovery went beautifully!
in Madison, AL |
Dr. Emblom has performed 2 Achilles & 1 ACL procedures on my son. There is no one else we would have trusted our son with.HE IS Very knowledgeable, professional, yet kind and caring. The entire staff are the epitome of a top notch TEAM. We travel 2 hours one way because of the care our son receives from Dr. Emblom. I cannot leave out Alexis. We love Alexis also, she stays on top of the scheduling and insurance matters. She is outstanding.

Dr. Emblom performed arthroscopic surgery on both of my hips. A few months later, right on schedule, I'm back to full activity and getting stronger every week. Before my surgery, my left hip in particular was causing me pain every time I exercised. Now I feel much stronger, and I believe I will continue to improve. During my time with his practice, Dr. Emblom was caring and responsive. He answered many questions, had a great bedside manner, and made me comfortable through the whole process.
Dr. Emblom is an excellent surgeon and there is no one I could speak more highly of. He is a no-nonsense, straight shooter. He will not beat around the bush regarding his diagnosis as he is extremely smart and confident in his work, all things you definitely need in a surgeon! He is caring and understanding, always willing to discuss a patient's concerns and is never rushed in the office. I'm pleased with the work he's done on me and I'm sure you would be too!
in Montgomery, AL |
Excellent surgeon and excellent bedside manner. He is the only doctor I would trust to operate on my knee . I can't say enough good things about him.
in GADSDEN Al. |
Very caring and professional.
in Wetumpka, AL |
Very knowledgable and professional in his evaluation of patient pain and how to resolve the issue. An excellent surgeon who has performed two knee surgeries on me, one being a partial knee replacement, with a third surgery, another partial knee replacement, scheduled. This is the only surgeon I would ever consider for knee surgery. Very professional in all of his dealings with me and my family.
