What People Say About Dr. James Adametz, MD

Horrible bedside manners, walked in and did not acknowledge my wife sitting beside me. Had an MRI, I received copy of MRI and paper of what the MRI had shown. Paper read that I had lower disc problems with a pinched nerve. He looked over MRI and said I don’t see anything and I can’t help you. Went to another Dr. and found out I had several problems with my back. Would not recommend him to my worst enemy.

I was the first to sign in this morning for my appointment. My wife and I waited over an hour in the exam room to see the doctor. He comes in and says nothing about the wait and doesn't offer to even shake my hand. He didn't ask how much pain I was in or what made it worse, or what kind of pain it was. I was sitting there with my medical records going back to 1995 and he didn't really want to ask me much of anything at all. He reviewed my MRI but was not enthused about explaining anything.

chose this Dr. because of his good reviews. My case is a workman's case so maybe that is why I felt like he didn't want to spend a lot of time with me, sort of dismissed me. Or maybe because he is a surgeon and I didn't need surgery, but really wanted to get questions answered and really do not feel as if I got to ask them all or like he even understood my situation. Just drew his conclusion from the MRI. So I left still having pain and no solution.

I was referred to Dr. Adametz after rounds of physician visits to determine the cause of my neck and shoulder pain. After weeks of physical therapy and increasing pain, Dr. Adametz in one visit was able to pinpoint the cause of my pain and provide a solution. I was scheduled for surgery relatively quickly and had a C5/6 disk repair. I had a wonderful and short hospital stay and my follow up visit allowed me to ask questions that I had about my recovery.

Waited 2 hours just to be juggled around between doctors in this office. Only to be referred to my back doctor for more imaging which my back doctor doesn't provide. Back doctor tells me Dr. Adametz should have requested the imaging instead of passing the buck. He then completed a statement to my short term disability carrier stating that although I am restricted from lifting, pushing, or pulling any weight whatsoever, I am somehow able to work full time. Completely screwed that process up.
