Our visit to Dr Emer's Eye Care was great. The front desk and techs made it all go so smoothly. Dr. Clair was very kind and made sure all my questions were answered. Thank you all for making two appointments go quick and easy.
Emer eye care is hands down the best around. Dr. Pete, Dr Ben ans all the staff are truly top notch!!! Been going here for years and am always treated wonderfully!!! 5 stars!!!
Dr. Emer is so thorough when he does my eye exams, he goes the extra mile and explains everything so well. His staff is awesome. I recommend him to my friends and family.
His new office is really nice!
New, Nov 2023: Dr. Pete Emer has always been very thorough in my eye examinations over the 25+ years that I have been his patient. I like how he explains the details of what he is doing. I highly recommend him, his son Dr. Ben Emer, and their associate Dr. Clair.
The new doctor, Dr. Clair, is very nice and did a great job with my exam. She taught me a couple things. The front office got everyone involved with picking glasses b/c I couldn't choose. It was a good experience!
I’ve been going Emer eye care for my entire life. They’re always so nice and caring there. I don’t ever usually like going to a doctor but this one I do.
I've been going here for a few years and as someone with some problematic eyes, every doctor here is wonderful. They all take the time to do a thorough exam, explain their findings and recommendations, and are patient and good listeners to a person's concerns. I now take my grandma here too and they treat her so well which is a relief.
