Dr. Emily Heronemus is board-certified in family medicine and fellowship-trained in primary care sports medicine. She provides patients of all ages with comprehensive sports care, concussion care, uses ultrasound for evaluations and injections and treats a variety of conditions affecting muscles, bones and joints.

“I was an athlete growing up, playing a number of sports, and I played softball in college,” she said. “I’ve had injuries so I’m able to sympathize with patients and can understand what they’re going through in their process of healing.”

Dr. Heronemus received her bachelor’s degree from Bethany College in Lindsborg and earned her medical degree from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. She completed a family medicine residency at Via Christi Family Medicine and her fellowship at Via Christi Sports Medicine.

Our caring, compassionate, dedicated team - from the front desk, to physical therapists and physicians – work together to give you a personalized experience.”

Philosophy Of Care

I take an individualized approach - treating each patient differently, taking into consideration their history, diagnosis, what’s going on in their life and discussing their goals and wishes. We come up with a treatment plan to address all those things and get them back to their normal routine.

Dr. Heronemus was empathetic and listened closely to my concerns which she then addressed completely. Her training and background was exactly what I needed for my specific injury. She explained specifically my situation and I have complete confidence in her.

Emma had an immediate appointment. She had X-rays that were completed quickly and immediate results at the appointment. In all the Drs appointments I've had recently with my family, this appointment was so efficient.

Dr. Heronemus provided a very thorough examination of my hip issues, listened carefully to my questions and concerns and provided a detailed explanation of my X-rays and the possible diagnoses for various pain patterns I am experiencing. She developed a sensible plan for treatment, provided personal contact information, and a revised plan for pain medication. I was treated with an injection during this visit which seems to be helping and I have been referred for physical therapy and a follow up visit. I am very impressed with the quality of care I am getting for my hip issues.

Dr Heronemus went above and beyond, she took the time to do an additional small procedure even when they were short staffed and busy, she knew I lived 45 minutes away and couldn't take off more time from work so she took care of me. I am so grateful and appreciative of that. I didn't feel like just another patient she had to hurry and get through. She as kind and sweet and it meant the world to me that she took that extra time.
