Patient Comments (8)
in Andrews, NC |
I'm 61 years old and have seen quite a few GYNs in my years. She's kind, friendly, compassionate, knowledgeable, and thorough. She saw me in her office before and after my exam. She discussed my history and conditions thoroughly and gave me all of my options for care, taking all of my desires into consideration. It's been a long time since I was this impressed the first time I met a doctor. She gets my rave reviews.
Cleveland, TN |
She genuinely seems to care for her patients and has even called to personally check on me in the late evenings more than once when anything was going on just to be sure that I was okay. I trust her judgement more than any other doctor I've had for anything in years. I highly recommend her.
Honaker, VA |
Wanted to prescribe progesterone for blood clots.
Honaker, VA |
Horrible, ignored blood clot symptoms during pregnancy and after she did c-section. Sent home with pulmonary embolism. Took baby early though for no apparent reason. She did like the good insurance for her and her doctor buddies. Not interested in patient care.
in Benton, TN |
Straight forward, great at getting you in and out for appointments. Doesn't mind going out of her way to see you ANY TIME you need her. Saw her for my 3rd baby and I am going back to her again for my 4th child. Very pleased.
in Dayton Tn |
Not a good experience!
Chatsworth, GA |
Dr. Adams is extremely knowledgeable and good at explaining procedures. She also does not take potential medical problems lightly and made it extremely clear to me that she cared about my pregnancy and my baby's safety. She tends to have a dry sense of humor and can seem rough at first but is very nice. She also did an amazing job with my emergency c-section! My only complaint is that I have never gotten in and out of her office less than 60 minutes after my scheduled appointment time.
I was seeing another doctor in the same office for my first pregnancy I winded up seeing her once and really felt like she knew what she was doing and was very informative! If I hadn't been 39 weeks I would have swapped right then and there to her and even now I regret not choosing her to deliver my child
