Verified Patient Reviews
This was a great visit - I was roomed right away, and Dr. Ema's nurse Ivan was wonderful. I only waited a couple of minutes for Dr. Ema, and she was fantastic - very knowledgeable, explained everything thoroughly and made sure I didn't have questions before moving on to the next topic. Ivan also asked if I had questions. I was most impressed with Dr. Ema's comprehensive assessment/exam and with her nonjudgmental attitude, kindness and efficiency. I have searched for a primary care provider for a long time and have had some pretty negative experiences recently, but I will definitely go back to Dr. Ema!
very smart doctor
Dr. Ema was kind, intelligent, and active in her listening and treatment. She is focused on making sure the patient feels taken care of, listened to, and like an active participant in their medical plan. I would recommend her for her bedside manner and her knowledge. I've seen many doctors, and this appointment was by far the most comfortable I've ever felt.
I really liked Dr. Ema - she was kind, thorough, non-judgemental. She asked multiple times throughout the visit if I had questions or any concerns. She was quick to follow up with lab results and explained everything. She was also super personable. I would definitely recommend her.
