Hudson, NY |
My son was supposed to have surgery to correct and issue he was born with. My first clue that he was not the one to do my son's surgery was the fact that he had no idea when the right age to do the surgery was. Not only that, he had mentioned he had experience in the surgery, come to find out he did not. We were told the surgery was going to be hours long, and my son who was 4 months old at the time would have a nose that wouldn't grow properly. Our Ped told us not to get surgery with him!

I am extremely impressed with Dr. Adelson and his staff, they are heads above other ENTs that I have seen. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and he takes time to get to know each of his patients. Scheduling may be difficult because he is highly sought after, but he is absolutely worth the wait. My septorhinoplasty performed by Dr. Adelson has allowed me to breathe better than I ever have before. I am completely satisfied and I highly recommend Dr. Adelson.

Dr. Adelson is brilliant and extremely intelligent. With kind, caring bedside manners, he made my septorhinoplasty surgery a smooth process. I would recommend him 100%. He truly has been an angel in my life.

Dr. Adelson is by far the best doctor (not only ENT) that I have ever gone to. He was able to correct the mistakes from my prior sinus surgery at another local ENT office and the outcome was perfect. He takes the time to sit and talk to you, something you don't get with many doctors anymore, understanding your symptoms, offering suggestions, actually caring about your condition. Sat with me and reviewed my scans to show me the issues I had explaining each, wow! Highly recommend Dr. Adelson.

Dr. Adelson is the most phoenmal Doctor that I have had the pleasure of being a patient. He was able to treat my breathing problems through a surgical approach due to my extremely deviated septum. I am an active athlete and I can breathe fully through both nostrils now. Also, I would get headaches due to sinus pressure that has now completely subsided. Although at times there can be a bit of a wait at the ent to see him, it is because he treats all of his patients with the same quality care :)

awesome, more knowledgeable doctors are few and far between. 100% satisfied with Dr Adelson. His entire staff is top notch as well. I drove 3 hrs to appointments with him, and it was the best decision I made. What multiple ENT doctors failed to fix over a three year period, he fixed in three months.
Very very well informed through and absolutely great bedside manner
