Seems overloaded with patients and doesn't really seem to care about the patients. Very dismissive and when I asked if he actually read my MRI as he was perplexed on my injury. He then went back and looked at my report and admitted he hadn't read it all and could now see why I was in pain. If I need to see another Dr. I will definitely avoid him. So sad to be a Dr. and not really show compassion or care for injured patients.

Excellent doctor. Help me through a very difficult time, got me to the right surgeons. Dr. Adams followed up after the service to be sure the procedures were done properly. I can highly recommend him.

Worst Dr I have ever seen! This man formed a conclusion before ever even evaluating my husband who fell off an 8 ft ladder. He refused treatment because it was an L &I claim. He does not care for his patients health at all.

Worse doc ever! He was short, wouldn't let me talk, put words in my mouth, and was the rudest doc I have ever met. I waited over an hour to see him; he asked me questions about my injury but would not let me explain why I was there in the first place. He even called the L&I rep 2x to get the story from her instead of me the patient. After 15 min, I got angry at him, he said I had taken up too much of his time; he had 6 other patients out in the waiting room! I left crying, no exam was done!
