he has been my primary doctor for 15 yrs.. I had a problem with body itching. He knew what it was and drew me a sketch of my problem.. he then referred me to a specialist that did a procedure on me. this doctor then sent me to an oncologist in Charleston, S.C. it was a tumor on my pancreas. that god they caught in the early stages. This type of cancer is hard to find. That why I said that DR. Adler help save my life.

I have been a patient of Dr. Adler for several years. He and his staff are attentive and kind to me. I greatly appreciate each one in his office. I recommend Dr. Adler to anyone who asks me about a medical Dr. in the area.

Dr. Adler has always been kind and professional with me. Came to the hospital to check on me. Always spends enough if not more time than needed with me. I some times think I am the youngest patient in his care (60). We will all die sometime...

Terrible! Know people who have died under his care. Doesn't like to touch patients. Find a doctor who doesn't try to "fix" things with a pill or another expensive test.

A "gentleman doctor" who doesn't like to touch patients. My mother had a foot infection. He refused to examine it because it was "too much trouble" to take her shoe off. Told her to stop taking antibiotics if they were bothering her. My mother had been complaining of severe bowel issues for months, but he refused to do a fecal culture or refer to a specialist until I threatened to switch providers. She has a severe case of C Diff (bacterial bowel infection) that he should have caught. Bad doc.

The worse Doctor I have ever had! Don't go there. He will let you die! I moved out of SC and now have a doctor that cares and sending me to 2 different specialist to follow up on my conditions which kept getting worse. Dr Adler sticks a general Dx on you then forgets all about you. He stuck fibromyalgia on me.

My wife and I both have been seeing him since we moved here in 2011. each visit is like the first he cant seem to remember he has seen either of us before. we have waited for months to get results from testing. he has no problem referring you to other services within his own attached facilities. Since we have been there we have witnessed many staff and physicians come and go. Also his practice has fell to nearly nothing. My wife and I are also leaving to find someone we can trust with our care.
