      I highly recommend Dr. Adams. I have 2 children with Crohn's disease & he and his staff have always been very nice to me & my kids. My youngest wasn't diagnosed right away until I changed pediatricians & we ended up going to a hematologist who then told me my son had blood in his poop & to see a gastroenterologist. I knew exactly who I was going to go to because he took care of my oldest son & at the very first appointment he knew what we had to do. My son is doing better with meds. He's great!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
