As a doctor, I liked Dr Aadaam. But I was mystified why he was 30 minutes late for a 1:30 appointment when I was told I was his first patient. I also didn't appreciate being seen by a resident first. I don"t like it when the first encounter with the specialist is through other staff.

Extremely competent, skilled GI specialist with exceptional bedside manners and a genuine concern for his patients. I have had achalasia for over a decade complicated by post-surgical gastroparesis (performed by a different GI surgeon at a different Chicago hospital). Dr. Aadam performed endoscopic surgery on me last month and although Ill never be perfect, I thank him and his staff for significantly improving my quality of life!

I'm very pleased with his ability to answer my questions and help me understand procedures. His medical skills helped me tremendously - POEM procedure was just what I needed.

After we talked, both of us were on the same page from the get go. They brought confidence and decreased to me today. Definitely will return to him and recommend him for sure!!
