Patient Comments (3)
in St Petersburg, FL was Maumee Ohio |
In 1999 or 2001 I was referred to Dr Emery.I lived in Maumee Ohio and Traveled to Cleveland where he was practicing and teaching.Without x-rays,MRI'S OR CT scans, he knew what was wrong just by examination, then by CT TO prove his diagnosis.I had a botched Surgery in Toledo Ohio, but the 2 hr. Drive back and forth gave me my life back.His skills and bedside manner s we're above and beyond.That is a hard thing for a RN to say.He is the best. Diane Lilly

I absolutely love Dr Emery! He is very kind and caring. He answers all your questions and is very thorough. He is amazing and when I had my back surgery he explained everything to me and what to expect! You cannot go wrong choosing him and his staff is so friendly and helpful!!
in Shinnston, WV |
Dr. Emery is without question, quite professional. My 82-year-old stepfather was advised on surgery. He was kind and reassuring, explaining the spinal condition that he was suffering from and what could be done as well as what he could and could not expect. After the surgery, he treated my stepfather with real respect and encouraged him. Within two weeks there was huge improvement. I appreciate and would highly recommend this professional. There is much more to say but not enough space.
