Dr. Deanna Sasaki-Adams preformed brain surgery on my Husband last October. He had 49 staples in his head when she was finished. But both his aneurisms were clamped off and his life was saved, by her skilled hands and God's will. No scar is visible now and after 41 years of marriage, he still doesn't listen to me, and he's still hard headed but doing good.

My husband was hospitalized in March 2017 for a brain aneurysm and was in UNC Chapel Hill hospital for 37 days. Dr. Adams lead the team that saved my husband's life. The entire staff in the UNC Neuroscience ICU unit was absolutely wonderful. Dr. Adams was kind and compassionate and thorough throughout the entire medical emergency. We are very thankful.

Dr. Sasaki-Adams looked after my daughter after she had an AVM that ruptured in Dec. 2011, and she continued to see her until 2014. We could not have had a kinder, more compassionate doctor. While my daughter was in the PICU and we were trying to process all that was going on, Dr. Adams spent a good deal of time with us, allowing us to process the information and giving us time to formulate the questions we needed to ask. She was always such a calming presence for me and my daughter!

Entire experience I've had with this physician and staff have been unprofessional with absolutely no bedside manner. From her rude nurses to everyone else on her team, all of which make you feel as though your questions are a waste of time and they have better things to do while they rush you in and out of the room. Will not return.
