Cedric Emery, MD Board-Certified in Urology
"The doctor/patient relationship is based on trust, respect, and work toward a common goal. I do everything I can to nurture those elements of the relationship in order to get my patients to a healthy point in their lives. I want their trust, and I do all I can to earn it."
Leading Education Supported by Compassion"My education has been one of the great joys of my life. Not only because I love to learn, but because it has enabled me to make ill people well again. My greatest gift comes when I am able to listen to a patient and comfort them with a little piece of helpful knowledge. Whether it’s a simple lifestyle change that may reduce the risk of prostate cancer or an explanation of a procedure that puts a patient at ease, I keep you informed every step of the way."

Trusted Experience & Patient Care"As with most professions, experience makes a very big difference in the ability of the professional. My medical career has been varied, but I’ve always maintained an interest in urology and getting patients back to a healthy life. If experience is the best teacher, then I’ve had an outstanding education."

Knowledge that Helps Patients & Doctors Alike"As a member of several professional organizations, I receive the latest information on ways of treating my patients. Then there are occasions when I can pass along information to a colleague, which may then be used to help their patient – someone I’ll never meet. I am humbled by that opportunity."
