Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Adeso was prompt and courteous. He answered all of my (many!) questions, and I didn't feel rushed as he talked with me. He explained all of my options, and I didn't feel pressured into getting gallbladder removal surgery. I ended up electing to get the procedure. Dr. Adeso met with me before the surgery, and he was very calm and reassuring. He did a wonderful job. I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Adeso if you are having problems w/ your gallbladder. I am so happy I went to him.

I was very pleased with my recent visit to Dr. Adeso. He was very attentive and quite the professional that I expected. Should there be any future illness that may require his expertise, then I would certainly seek him to administer the care that I might need. He has a very pleasant "bedside manner!"
