Patient Comments (1)
in Destin, FL |
Dr Adams and his staff are top notch in every aspect of care. I have had several surgeries resulting from skin cancer diagnoses and I am completely satisfied with the results and very confident that Dr Adams is the best in this area. He is MOH's certified which to me that means he can take care of you on site so the whole process is more efficient and faster. Because of the ongoing care I receive from the Coastal Skin Surgery and Dermatology Center I have been cancer free for 2 years.
