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!
