The nurse I first met with was friendly, but seemed a little all over the place and had trouble using the computer. Dr Ema was wonderful though! She took time to listen to my concerns, asked questions, and had a wealthof knowledge to share. The office itself is older, but is well maintained.

Dr. Emma is very friendly, knowledgeable, and makes sure to explain everything to the patient. I had a lot of questions and she was very patient and thorough in answering them and making sure I felt comfortable. The examining rooms andwaiting room are very dingy and a bit run down but Dr. Ema is a great physician.

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 sureI 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!

After not seeing a doctor for years because of previous bad experiences, I finally went in to see Dr. Ema because of the positive reviews on Zocdoc. She was great! She listened to all of my concerns without judgment and offeredadvice on how to mitigate them. I also never felt like Dr. Ema was in a rush to get me out of the office; she spent as much time as was needed to make sure that all my concerns were aired and that I understood what the next steps were.

Dr. Emma was excellent. She's very friendly and easy to talk to and saw me right away. She made me feel comfortable and didn't rush the appointment even though I was the last patient. She went above and beyond to helpme pick the right prescription and explained everything she was doing. Her hours are also very open compared to other doctors in the area. I liked most that she treated me like a patient she'd had for years and instead of a brand new one.
