Not happy with him, leaves you with such small amounts of meds for serious health conditions. You are also not ever gotten returns to calls when you need help. He is knowledgeable, environment is good. After I was put in his care from prior Dr my med got cut in 1/2 and dose lowered to lowest possible! Only two pills a day for break through pain for MS! I don't recommend him for this reason!

Unsatisfied – Aug 17, 2020
Had to wait over 2 hours in a freezing room. Then, when the dr finally came in, he did not listen to me or act like he even cared, and he barely saw me for 5 minutes. I do not understand why anyone would do this to a patient.....it is very upsetting, and disheartening. This dr did not do anything to help me, and the lack of experience he has really shows.

I really like Dr. Emerick, I just wish he didn't work for UPMC. I find I get better care when I received care outside of UPMC.

pittsburgh, pa – Mar 28, 2017
Dr. Emerick is the best Dr. that I have ever been to. He takes the time to answer every single question and concern that you might have. He is very educated and makes sure to educate you as well. I can not say enough amazing things about him as a Dr. He does not just prescribe you pain medication and send you on your way. He looks for alternative treatments to keep you on as little medicine as possible. He has changed my life for the better and I am so thankful. Top notch! His staff is great!!

Dr. Emerick assisted/performed the trial occipital neuralgia implant on Thursday, April 21 as well as removing. He was caring, helpful and told me everything he was doing. I actually recommended him to two family members.
