Patient Comments (5)

I had shoulder surgery six months ago and I feel just great. Everything healed in the time I was told it would. I am heading back to golf now and am so happy that I chose Dr. Adams to do the surgery. I had great care and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Would recommend Dr. Adams in a heart beat. He performed shoulder surgery on me this past year. He is thorough, friendly and doesn't rush you when you need to discuss something with him. And most importantly, my shoulder is doing great. Thanks Dr. Adams

Dr. Adams is thoughtful. He has your interests at heart. His expertise and education is top-drawer. He took me from a tough rotator cuff injury to where I am back on the court playing tennis-my favorite game. I am 71 and back in the game. If you have a shoulder problem he is your man.
