This doctor is amazing!!!! He is so down to earth and spends time with his patients like no other. So many Doctors treat their patients rude and unfriendly but not Dr. Adkisson. He takes the time to explain in detail your medical condition until you completely understand. We are so blessed to have Dr. Adkisson. I would recommend Saint Thomas Heart to anyone... ! My Husband was admitted on 4/19/2018 and had open heart surgery on 4/28/2018. Love the care he received..!!!!!!
