I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Adusumilli! From the first few moments of speaking with him, I knew he was just what I had been searching for, and I did search for an experienced surgeon to take care of me. I know all reviews you read about him talk about his sincere caring disposition and this is so true. When you have someone who cares like he does and has the experience to perform the surgery and give follow up care as he does, what else can you ask for. Dr. Adusumilli is top notch in my book!

Dr. Adusumilli changed my life. I went from being in constant pain with deformity to a doctor with great knowledge and an even better character. He spends lots of time talking and explaining, generally caring about his patients. Can not thank him enough or recommend him and his office enough.

I am sadly disappointed in my surgery. I was not told the high level risk and I'm almost certain I asked. I am left to deal with gastroparesis, which I had to ask if I had this. No real instructions to deal with it and it is horendous to deal with. I was only offered meds and no real instructions instructions on how they interact with my current meds. Yes, I read reviews prior to seeking medical attention. But there was a lot lacking here. Dr adusumili said very little. I as a lay person had no knowledge of the madness associated with hernia repair. Shame, shame, shame.

Dr. A saved my life. I suffered from slow transit disorder for over 4 years, with the only remedy being harsh laxatives and enemas every week that made me malnourished, down to 75 pounds, and near death. I went to Johns Hopkins prior to my surgery many times, just to be told they couldn't figure it out. As soon as I saw Dr. A he knew exactly what was wrong and scheduled me for surgery within 2 months of seeing him. During recovery, he was there almost every day. He gave me a chance to live.

Dr A is truly a compassionate and caring person. I’ve never left a review for any medical care provider- and I’ve seen many- but he deserves the praise. He is personable and caring and made me feel very at ease. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Adusumilli is by far a true “physician” he is a gifted surgeon who has also been gifted with a “mind, body and soul” approach to healing. He has an amazing “bedside manner” and is as kind and compassionate as any one could ever want their doctor to be. Not a day went by during a very lengthy hospital stay that we weren’t visited by him. He explained to us each step to expect and he made sure we understood everything. We have the deepest gratitude for Dr Adusumilli and his amazing practice

Dr A. saved my life when he performed my colon resection. He is compassionate and caring. His staff is exceptional and know how to treat their patients. His PA Afton is wonderful and is the perfect complement to Dr A. I would highly reccomend him to anyone.

Dr. Adusumilli performed my colon resection in June of 2016. All aspects of my care were excellent...the initial consultation, the surgery and hospital stay and the follow up appointments. He has my strongest recommendation.

Dr. A has performed surgery on 6 members (hernia/gall bladder/colon) of my family and myself. I am also scheduled for surgery in 3 weeks for a hernia. There are no words that could possible express the gratitude that I have for Dr. A. He not only took my daughter under his wings to teach her as a new nurse but he has helped our family in so many ways. He is a kind, caring and excellent surgeon. I trust him 100% with my life and my families as well. He is a very knowledgable top rated MD.

Most call him simply Dr. A, since Dr Adusumilli is hard to remember and say. Dr A, performed three surgeries on me, the first saving my life. Only negative is sometimes he can be a little difficult to understand, but his office is excellent at letting you follow up and ask the same question again to get clarification. Dr A has take a lot of time to discuss my medical problems and explained them to me. Great person.

I found Dr Adusumilli online and he had far better ratings than other doctors in this specialty. My first appointment with Dr Adusumilli was excellent. He listened to my problems and examined me. After discussing my problems and what he found, a course of treatment was decided upon. The first part was done on the initial visit which helped in getting rid of the pain that I was having. It is obvious that he is there for the patient and not trying to rack up many visits and high bills.

Dr Sankar Adusumilli is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. Even though he is an expert, he is very down to earth, approachable and was able to answer our questions in layman terms. He did my colonoscopy, and hemorrhoid ligation recently. I was impressed with his personal follow up callback, when we paged the doctor for some pain late at night, experienced after the surgery. Based on our experience, I will recommend Dr Sankar Adusumilli as an excellent and caring surgeon/doctor.

Dr. Adusumilli is an excellent surgeon. He figured out what was going on in my abdomen which the G.I. doctors called IBS. I had a dilated cecum with a volvulus. Dr. A saved my life. He is a very caring and has the gift of being empathetic as well.
