Great experience from all back office team, from the MA to the NP and the MD. The front office team wasnot as professional as I would hope as they were sitting around gossiping (which patients can hear). I think the U/S tech was not very personable and seemed to rush but overall, great experience with the care team.

Dr. Emrani and his entire staff were fantastic. From the front desk to all of the nurses, PA's, techs, and the doctor himself were all wonderful with amazing and empathetic bedside manners. I have been looking for a new doctor for a few years now, and I am happy to say I have finally found a doctor and office that I will happily go back to.

My experience with Dr. Emrani was very positive. He is very thorough. He sat down and spent his time explaining my results and his plan of action to improve my health and wellbeing. He's not in a rush to prescribe medications and is suggestive of lifestyle modifications. The staff in his office are pleasant and seem to really enjoy what they do. His PA was very nice and she was detailed and thorough. His Medical assistant was so nice and she did a painless blood draw. The ultrasound tech was pleasant and completed my procedure quickly and efficiently. Everyone in the office has a great attitude and another plus is everything can be done right there in the office. They don't send you from place to place like other offices do. If you ever need a cardiologist or internal medicine doctor you can't go wrong with Dr. Emrani and his team.

I knew exactly what I had when I went in and was denied antibiotics. I ended up having to go to urgent care because my respiratory infection got so bad. Easy to schedule but it felt like a factory where you are a number to the doctor. Doctor time is limited (maybe 5 min). The rest of the staff was friendly and professional.

Went in to clean my ears out, which was done before I even got to see Emrani. When I did meet with the doctor, he was very open to questions and explaining things. Friendly guy. Would recommend.

From my initial arrival to the office, it was apparent that the office staff was very friendly. They took care of my insurance verifications even though I was missing an insurance card. Everyone in the back office was very friendly and supportive. My initial consultation was done by a PA who was very friendly and thorough. I had to do a stress test and afterwards, I wasn't feeling very well at all. The entire staff was very caring, checked on me every few minutes, and made sure I was ok before they allowed me to leave.

I went in for an ear infection and had tremendous pain. He saw the problem and treated very promptly which is what I wanted. It's now a few days later and I'm feeling better. It was my first visit, I'm not from the area, and there were no problems. Also, I got to the office an hour early at 8 am and they saw much earlier and I was actually on the road with prescription filled by 9 am which is when my appointment was scheduled. Good stuff!!

Thought he was great! My normal GP is a bit of a distance away, and I couldn't get an appointment. I was 8 months pregnant and woke up with a horrible ache in my wrist so I needed to see someone right away - Dr. Emrani was very kind and efficient and even made sure I saw a specialist that day who took care of it. Would definitely recommend. d
