Dr. Emory & his staff care deeply for each patient. Patients are given time needed in appointments yet seen on time, phone calls are returned quickly & the Dr. Is, in my opinion, the best there is.

Dr, Emory has been my primary care physician since 1975 when I contracted viral pneumonia. He is warm, personable and a consummate physician in every way -- and after all the years that have passed, also a friend. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation. He truly fits the description: They don't make them like this anymore!

Dr. Brooks Emory, along with Dr. William Davis in Rheumatology, literally saved my life! I can never repay Dr. Emory or Dr. Davis for diagonsing me when so many others failed! That was over three years ago and Im still alive!!! I would highly recommend him. Thank you, Sir and God bless!
