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.
