They treat me very well and listen to me well and they take good care of me, just like my child.

This appointment was a very scary thing to walk into, but Dr. Adelekan was the most caring, the most thorough, and we couldn't have asked for a better doctor to have this first step into our new world of autism. So I'm glad that's who we saw, and I look forward to continuing to see her.

The provider is absolutely fantastic. She does a great job interacting with children. She also did a great job explaining everything and answered all of our questions and concerns. She also had her nurse call us with diagnostic test results within a couple hours of the test being completed. Dayton Children's is lucky to have this provider as an employee. Highly recommend!!!
