What People Say About Dr. Deanna Sasaki-Adams, MD
Reply
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.
