Dr. Emblom is a very knowledgeable in his field. As a 38 year old, I was facing a total knee replacement. I was immediately comforted by his compassion and expertise. His staff is fantastic, especially Alexis! I loved that this practice is up-to-date on the most advanced technology in surgery. ...more

Horrible. Saw me for 2 minutes tops as a new patient. Gave me a silly diagnosis but couldn't answer any of my questions about it. He said "I don't know" to everything I asked. I asked for help getting off my crutches and he did not address the issue at all. The whole office was covered in Alabama...more

Dr . Emblom performed a total knee replacement on me June 5. I had limited range of motion in this knee for over 20 years but after surgery I have full ROM.. I am so grateful to him & his staff because I now have my life back! I highly recommend Dr. Emblom to anyone suffering with joint pain!
