Dr. Adkins is the best surgeon one could hope to find! He removed my prostate on Monday, I was home Tuesday. By Friday, 4 days after surgery, I feel really great! I haven’t taken any pain medication for 2 days. I continue to take it easy, drinking lots of water and some cranberry juice, and taking small walks every hour. One skilled surgeon, I highly recommend Dr. Adkins based on my personal experience.

Dr. Adkins and staff are great! I have seen him for kidney stones and have since sent my whole family. The wait is short and I got in immediately for an appointment when I called. Very satisfied!

My experience with Dr. Adkins and his staff has been outstanding, including the staff at DePaul Hospital where Dr. Adkins performed a surgery on me. He recognized my situation quickly and the urgency to get care and scheduled the care without delay. In addition to his outstanding personal effort his nurses and administrative staff have been equally responsive to my needs. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Adkins to anyone.

I have been seeing Dr. Adkins since 2007 and have never been disappointed with my treatment. On a number of occasions I've had to reach out for an emergency visit and have always been worked into the schedule. He is outstanding with his ability when it comes to making you feel that both you and your health matter. A very good feeling when seeing a Dr. of his caliber. I have the utmost confidence in his medical knowledge and his way of applying that knowledge.

Very talented doctor. He was trained by some of the highest rated urologists in the world. He went to UVA and Vanderbilt - - both top tier schools. He pays attention to the details and follows up with his patients/spouses/family.
