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.

Dr. Adelekan is a breath of fresh air. She just loves on him so much. She just gives us such a piece of mind, helps us understand what's going on and helps us see that he is just a wonderful loving 9 month old and she just is an amazing person and like I said just truly a breath of fresh air and really understands what's going on. Asked all the right questions and helps us. So patient and understanding with the silly questions. She's just a wonderful person.
