Thank God for Ryan McAdams he is an amazing person. Our daughter was in the NICU and Dr.McAdams was the only doctor that would talk to my husband and I like real people he never once made us feel like we were being treated like stupid parents who know nothing (like most doctors these days). He always was there for us and when he had to break us bad news he did it himself he even came back to the hospital after he was off work to sit with us when our daughter wasn't doing well. He made sure we understood all of our options and helped us with the research. After our daughter passed he even went to see her twin brother in UW NICU before our son was able to come home just so he could make sure that our son was healthy. Thank you doctor McAdams, we will be seeing you soon with our next baby and we are so happy that you will be part of the team that helps our son. Thank you again.

Dr McAdams is more than just a wonderful doctor he is a wonderful man. He always had time for my wife and I while our son was in the Nicu. He spoke to us like human beings when we had questions. He never once spoke down to us. Our only regret is that he does not have an outside pediatrician practice as he would surely be our sons primary care doctor. Thank you so much Dr McAdams.

I thank God for Dr. McAdams! He is a wonderful Doctor that had to make some tough decisions with our son's care. He looked outside the box and as a result, we believe he played a big role in saving our son's life. He took a lot of time to come and talk with us whenever we had concerns. I especially appreciate him talking to us intelligently rather than talking down to us. He helped us learn a lot about our son's condition. Thank you Dr. McAdams! Augustus' Mom and Dad
