    Patient Reviews
    • Dr. Emmel did my cataract surgery. He was great – no pain at all. Very professional.
    • Great doctor…very knowledgeable and caring.
    • EXCELLENT – Would highly recommend! Been seeing him for over 20 years (both husband and I).
    • Dr. Emmel is an excellent and caring physician; he has been my family’s
      doctor for over 30 years.
    • My family and I have seen Dr. Emmel for over 25 years and he not only is professional and courteous, he is always up to date with the latest equipment and knowledge to better treat your eyes. We have since moved away but we keep ties to this area, so we make our eye appointments for when we are up visiting. Thank you, Dr. Emmel, for taking good care of my eyes.
    • I have been a patient for over 20 years and wouldn’t trust anyone else with my eyes.
