15/12/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Emily is the most caring, compassionate doctor we have ever used. She treats my husband for stroke, and she treats him like the intelligent human being that he is. We always get a little lift after seeing her. She is very connected to the university staff, and refers when she wants a second opinion. She is an amazing person and an amazing doctor.

04/06/09 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Emily for over 10 years for my MS. I became a patient when I lived in Birmingham, and when I moved to Mississippi I continue to drive over 3 hrs to my appts.....Believe me....It's well worth it! She is the most knowledgeable physician that I have ever had the pleasure of knowing! She cares about every aspect of my life! I feel the same way about her Nurse Karen. Karen attends MS conferences and stays on top of MS treatment as much as Dr. Emily does! The office environment is so pleasant that I feel alittle sad when the appt. is over! I consider these people to be Friends and Family. I believe that anyone who has the good fortune to be a patient of Dr. Emily Riser should consider themselves blessed!

12/07/07 5 5 5 5 After 18 months of rigorous testing with other physicians and specialists, it took two weeks for Dr. Riser to diagnose my husband's problems which have totally disabled him. I owe a great deal of gratitude to this physician and appreciate her perkiness, knowledge and zeal. Would definitely recommend!!!
