Dr. Emmanuel C Edoka has the following 2 specialties
- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

We are very happy with Dr. Emmanuel Edoka. My 36 year old son suffered a traumatic brain injury 8 years ago. Dr. Edoka spent much time explaining what was needed for his present healthcare. He did so with compassionate patience. He let my son participate in choosing alternatives with him. Dr. Edoka was very knowledgeable, thorough, caring, and kind. This was also true about his nurse. I highly recommend him and we are extremely satisfied with his care. He is what a doctor should be.
Once you get past the ebonic speaking receptionists (who are rotating students from medical assisting schools) for an appointment, get reasy to wait. he is NEVER on time. He is very good at listening & focusing full attention upon you once you are in the exam room. He seems to care about patients and doesn't order tests frivolously, but once ordered it's hard to get your results from the staff. They don't call if it's normal, even when you'd like to know your cholesterol or blood sugar numbers. He doesn't hesitate to refer to specialists when it's out of his realm, but he does have a marked preference for St. David's doctors vs. Seton doctors. Overall, I feel like he is a very good doctor, just not good at time management or keeping a real staff. He used to have a nurse practitioner who was wonderful. His medical assistant Cassandra is a very competant, caring, and compassionate person. The heavy set caucasion lady at the front desk with short hair is as nice as they come - always a kind word or hug for patients. The students vary from completely ignorant to quiet and nervous. Since it's the dr we review, I have to give him almost 3 stars, the wait cuts out one.
Dr Edoka is a nursing home doctor for an Austin, Texas nursing home. My friend there had flu from which she recovered. However, afterwards she complained for weeks of chest pain and seemed to have breathing trouble. Dr. Edoka told her it was GERD. He fussed at her about she did not want to take her osteoporosis drug and ignored her complaints. I urged her to see a pulmonologist, but she couldn't bear to leave the nursing home to see another doctor. She turned out to have pneumonia in both lungs; she spend several weeks in the hospital in misery and then died.In my opinion, Dr. Edoka is a very poor doctor both in terms of caring (he blew off her complaints of cheswt pain) and of accurate diagnosis.
