Dr. Adair helped me through a very difficult time in my life. He was open minded, caring, and really went out of his was way to help me. About a year after my final visit, he was asked to respond to a questionnaire related to a life insurance policy I applied for. He did so in a very thoughtful way that was both honest but also enabled the insurance company to issue the policy. Some doctors would not have cared but he did.

Dr. Adair helped me so much to learn to manage my OCD and depression, including helping me thru stage 3 cancer diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Adair is a superb listener. It is hard being an introvert in this world.
