Dr. Adler by far is the best.

April 27, 2012

I wouldn't recommend him for my specific condition, because he doesn't believe in my condition. But for other pancreas conditions, I would definitely recommend him.

I appreciated the concern of pursuing the abormal lab; although the labs had improved; they remained elevated and a concern to both of us.

February 10, 2012

Could not ask for a better provider. Informative and caring

January 25, 2012

I came to the University after being brushed aside by the doctors that had been treating me. My concerns about what was going on with me and my symptoms, I felt like they treated me like they were all in my head. The difference in the care was amazing, makes me regret I wasted so much time with other doctors before I came to the University.
