Dr Adams is very personable and easy to talk to. He is a wonderful person. His profession is important but can be unpleasant. He does everything he can to keep you comfortable. I would recommend him to everyone.

I have seen Dr. Adams twice and he is very nice, caring and thorough. The receptionist is a little rude, but she isn't only there for Dr. Adams, she's there for all the Dr's.

Kind, compassionate, listens to everything and then recommends best treatment route. I would not trust anyone else. His staff is really good- they get to know their patients and are very friendly.
