I was referred To Dr. Adeso by a very good surgeon. I need another abdominal repair. I went for a consultation. I found Dr. Adeso very personable and easy to talk to. He was very knowledgeable and had several good ideas about how my surgery might be performed, including robotic options.

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!"
