I am a chronic kidney stone producer so Dr Adkins is one specialist that I rely on a lot. After approximately fifteen years of working with this guy I can definitely give a great recommendation. You will not find a better urologist in the area and his staff is always top notch!

No seating, only friendly person was woman @ front desk, there was a urine sample in the restroom just sitting on the rubbermade shelf, in both exam rooms trash cans were overflowing with bloody medical paper towels, pillowcases had small blood spots & though Dr Atkins was certain of what was going on “inside the blatter” he was wrong & then switched to say it was on my colon side. GRANTED, I’m not saying he is wrong, but the manner in which he said it was a bit short. No post care given.

Head doctor Adkins perform a vasectomy procedure went well fairly painless so far everything shows that it was a success not much to complain about never really talked to the doctor besides the consultation if you have any post questions you have to ask the nurses not the doctor

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.
