I have been seeing Dr. Adu for years. I can't find one negative thing to say about my visits. He always takes the time to listen to whatever you are saying. I don't ever feel rushed, regardless of how full his waiting room is. I know that he genuinely has my best interest in mind. If you are needing a pain management specialist, he's the ONLY one to go to. you won't be disappointed.

I have been with Dr Adu since 2008. He has always been kind sympathetic and empathetic which is a great combination in a pain management doctor. He’s been with me every step of the way and he encourages me by telling me I am a trooper. I had three surgeries 2017 4 surgeries 2018. He has been with me every step of the way and is very familiar with my case. I would take my mother brother or sister to see him without a second thought he and his wife are just kind people. I have never seen him angry or upset but I have seen him very busy. I love your care Dr Adu

Although Dr. Adu sees many patients, but I've only had to wait 30 minutes or more only a couple of appointments. He has wonderful bedside manner. He remembers the majority of his patients and treats everyone with respect and kindness, and will take a minute to discuss other issues you make known to him. I wouldn't want any other pain management doctor.

I recently gave him a 2 star review for something not his fault. He is an EXCELLENT Doctor, he has helped me over the last 7 years. He is kind, funny, and he LISTENS. That's important. I said his office staff needed attention. I was wrong. I need to clarify my point when speaking with them. It was no fault of theirs, Dr. Adu's, or anyone. I apologize for any misleading reviews, and have asked Healthgrades to take it down. If your in pain, he is definitely your Doctor.

I have a spinal cord injury, my wife is going through her 2nd round of stage four lung cancer treatments. Dr. Adu is a great doctor.I have been able to keep working and not go on disability and my wife is so much better because Dr Adu came up with the correct therapy for her. She is able to lead a more normal life while fighting the cancer.

He was the first pain management doctor I was referred to, and I have never considered another doctor. He actually listens to each and every issue you have, and goes above and beyond to address them all and make sure you are comfortable with what care and medication you are receiving. If I could find a PCP as caring and attentive as Dr. Adu, I'd be a very happy camper!

He's amazing! He truly cares about his patients & their quality of life. He wants to help his patients either improve or be comfortable. He will help in any way he can & will try all possible options. He isn't afraid to provide necessary medication. If you had a previous RX he will maintain it until he can come up with a better plan. He also researches rare disorder to become fully informed. It's hard to get in but WORTH THE WAIT!

I have recently started seeing Dr Adu for pain management, and so far he is the most caring, patient, understanding Dr I have been too. I don't mind if I have to wait a lil over my appt time because he takes his time with me when its my turn and really listens to me and never rushes in and rushes out like most Dr's now days. I would recommend him to anybody in pain and I'm sure if you have a sport's related injury he would treat you just the same. Very compassionate and non-judgmental.
