[Sher-IL is] Busy!! They seemed to be a bit understaffed for nurses. However, every nurse was compassionate and caring!....The entire office was pleasant to us each time we were there. We never had to reintroduce ourselves..... Because of my endometriosis we never got any further than medications/injections. They would cause a flare up and we would have to stop the cycle. She was very strict about not pushing my body any further than she thought was safe. We appreciated this greatly!

How was your experience with Adelina Emmi?
Dr. Emmi was always thorough and to the point. She answered any questions we had and never made us feel uncomfortable asking. I really struggled with having to stop seeing her so that I could seek endometriosis treatment to through a different specialist. The only down side to seeing Dr Emmi was the 2 hour drive to her office.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adelina Emmi?
She has allergies and your lotions and perfume WILL make them flair up! :-)

The office [Sher] isn't very welcoming but, Dr. Emma has been very honest and upfront. Not the warmest bed side manner but, was straightforward with us. Even though we have been disappointed with our results, it's nothing Dr. Emma has control over...She isn't the warmest doctor but, is more straight forward than any other doctor we have seen in the past....i felt like she wanted us to succeed and not just waste a cycle and have no results.
