      Thank goodness I found Dr. Adam, I have Achalasia and no Dr. in my area knew anything about it. He is a lifesaver.

      I am extremely fortunate to have had Dr. Abdul Aadom perform non invasive ERM to remove a very large polyp on the right side, ascending wall of my colon in lieu of surgical removal of a part of my colon. I am a 73 year old woman who was warned of risk due to the location and size of the colon. Because of Dr. Aadam's skill there were no negative side effects. I am so relieved and thankful to have Dr. Aadam as my doctor and also to be guided by his nurses, Nancy and Eileen. Also, Dr. Aadam associates were not only professional but reassuring in their professionalism and caring. I would highly recommend Dr. Aadam. I am so appreciative.

      When a gastro at another hospital recommended I have my colon removed, I can't tell you how relieved I was to find the voice of reason and compassion in Dr. Aadam. He put me at ease, which wasn't a simple thing considering how upset I was. He was patient with me and answered all my questions (and there were a lot). I didn't need to have my colon removed, no thanks to the other gastro. I trust Dr. Aadam implicitly and appreciate his kind care and expertise. He and Linda Feldman are a great team!

      When I think about what I am grateful for this holiday season, it is the team of Dr. Aadam and Linda Feldman RN. They were so kind and through and treated me as though they knew me for years. They were both so caring and professional. When I read about Dr. Aadamm his credentials were amazing. He studied in Japan to learn this endoscopic submucosal procedure which is so specialized. I feel very lucky that Dr. Aadam preferred this procedure. Thank you so much. Kathy Ann Smith
