I met Dr. Adams for the first time yesterday and I cannot understand why anyone could rate him less than a 5 star doctor. In fact I would give him a 5+. I have worked in the OR as well as doctor offices all of my life and not at Hershey Med.. I found Dr. Adams to be very knowledgeable and caring. I also found the office staff also very caring and willing to help. There should be more doctors like Dr. Adams.
