She was literally the best doctor and experience that I've had in a medical facility in my child's life.

Dr. Adelekan has been very instrumental, informative, and caring regarding navigating this process of my daughter's diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. She is a wonderful asset to our family. I just wish I could see her more frequently. Thank you so much.

Dr. Adelekan was very thoughtful. She was great with our 2 year old son. She listened to all of our concerns and took everything into careful consideration. We feel fortunate that she was the doctor our son saw for his evaluation.
