in Richmond, VA |
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!"

I had a meeting to discuss my gall bladder surgery with Dr. Adeso. He explained the procedure and what to expect in great detail. He answered all my questions, and I did not feel rushed throughout the process. He made me feel very relaxed and confident about his abilities.

Dr Adeso clearly explained my options. His office was able to schedule my surgery right away. I was pleased that I experienced minimal pain following surgery.

I had to have emergency surgery and Dr. Adeso was called in. He and his team were absolutely wonderful. They took the time to explain everything and answered all questions that I had. While it was a scary situation, Dr. Adeso was extremely calm and reassuring. He visited every day in the hospital and all of the nurses had praise for him. That speaks volumes!

I would highly recommend Dr. Adeso for Breast Cancer. He and his nurse, Cindy, are without question, at the top of their profession. Excellent, excellent care.
