In 1954, Adriano came to the United States and trained to be a surgeon at Good Samaritan Hospital from 1955 to 1960, he then went back to the Philippines in 1960 to work as a physician at Tanchoco General Hospital until 1962.

Adriano then opened his own private practice in 1979 and served the greater Cincinnati area until retirement in 2004.
Adriano was very proud of his professional career and his accomplishments; however, he had many hobbies and interests outside of his medical profession. Adriano enjoyed competitive ballroom dancing, and he competed in Columbus for 3 years. He also enjoyed playing golf and has many trophies that he won in tournaments from 2001 to 2005. Adriano was very quiet and reserved in his own way but whatever he decided to do, he did it until he was able to perfect it.
