Dr. Adams was so patient and kind with my four year-old. He was thorough and allowed you to ask all questions and really listened to everything that I had to say. I am so happy with the way our visit turned out. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Adams to anyone searching for a pediatric G.I.!

If you are looking for the best pediatric GI doctor, you found him. Crohn’s disease was diagnosed for my daughter at 7 1/2 years old. As heart breaking this diesel is, Dr Adams, kept my daughter out of the hospital for 13 years. Sadly my daughter is turning 21 and we must go to an adult specialist now. Not only is dr Adams good, he is so caring and knows how to talk to a child growing into a young adult. We will miss him dearly. Thank you Dr Adams for caring so much. We miss you

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!
