Excellent doc! Highly recommended! I was in the ER for an issue and Dr. Empaynado called me to check on my status. The nurse thought he was a relative that was a doctor because he was so caring and took so much time with me on the phone providing me information. He's very empathetic. One of the best doctors I've come across. I have not had to have surgery yet, but when I do I will be going back to Dr. Empaynado.

Can't say that I *wanted* to see him -- it's never something you look forward to, but I am very happy with Dr. Empaynado. He was honest, friendly, and when it ultimately came down to surgery, he was extremely efficient. Even when I had to go back due to a relatively minor complication, he got me right in and addressed it the same day. Each visit has been educational and he definitely listens to your concerns and looks to answer them honestly with no fluff. Extremely happy with his services.
