Dr. Adelekan is very knowledgeable, listens to us, and always follows through with everything she says during appointments so our autistic son gets all the help and support he needs to be successful, happy, and healthy. She's helped us tremendously with things like play project to assistance with insurance deductibles. I'm grateful we have her.
