The way this doctor spoke to me during our first appointment was humiliating. I am never seeing him or this hospital again and I’m going somewhere that patients are treated with respect He barely let me talk because he was such an arrogant jerk.

Dr. Adams is competent, professional and friendly. While visiting VA, I had an unexpected medical emergency requiring surgery. I am so grateful for Dr. Adams, his staff, and De Paul Medical Center! I would recommend his services to anyone, including any of my own family members.
