Patient Comments (6)
in Seadrift, TX |
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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Adu for over 3 yrs now. I strongly recommend Dr. Adu, as he is very thorough, caring and honest when discussing my condition, possibilities for treatment or ways that I can make changes to help myself. He is a super nice guy with a great bedside manner.
