One Star

Dr. Emmel is perhaps the least compassionate doctor, let alone human being, I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. He took two days to get the appropriate pain medication for my dying mother-in-law and then four days after her death, had still not signed her death certificate. Luckily, my husband is a physician and could sign the certificate himself. Thank you, Dr. Emmel, for making my husband sign his own mother's death certificate. You really need to retire before you cause any more heartache to already grieving family members.
