Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Adesina has ever received is “If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.”

What many people don’t know about Dr. Adesina is he’s been personally affected by three major hurricanes – Katrina while attending college in New Orleans, Ike while attending medical school at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, and Harvey during his first year of practice.
 
His guilty pleasure is binge watching reality TV with his wife after a hard day.

​The foundation to good medical care is the physician-patient relationship. My patient care goals are what I call the 3 C’s: compassion, communication, and collaboration. I aim to treat patients as if they were my own family, communicate in a personable manner, and approach each medical decision as a collaboration with equal partnership.
