This man does his surgery and says good bye. He is rude, does no follow up and sends you to physical therapy without telling the therapists why you are there. He refuses to give a referral for a post surgery complication, basically my experience is frustration. I had to pay for my post surgery complication therapy simply because He refused to give me a referral. I wish I had interviewed more doctors before deciding upon this man.

I unfortunately had to have an emergency C5-C7 Laminectomy. I could not have asked for a better surgeon. He was so thorough, and didn't mind taking his time to help me understand my injury and what to expect during and after my surgery. I was so scared, but during the entire process, he remained so patient and kind. I am so thankful for all that he has done for me. I could have become a paraplegic, if it wasn't for Dr. Adey.

He saved my life...he removed a tumor from my spinal column in January 2012...(Laminectomy C5-C7). I am well now and no more pain. He is the best of the best doctor that I ever met in my life. Thank you Dr. Adey!!
