Everyone there is nice and very knowledgeable & helpful. They made me feel comfortable, something I normally don't do anywhere. If you're looking for a Dr. to help you Dr. Adams is one that CAN & WILL. When I got there filled out papers was took straight back, they were back there waiting for me. Did everything that was needed to be done & I was on my way. Thanks to ALL of you.

It took 4+ hours to get back to see the doctor. I left shortly after because I couldn't justify spending more time to see the doctor. I was there at 4:00pm for my appointment at 4:30. I wanted to fill out documents seeing that I was a first time patient. I got back to see the nurse at 8:00ish. I then went to the room. I waited for 30 more minutes and then left at 8:30. I do not recommend the office for this reason.

Dr Adams is an amazing doctor,very knowledgeable in his field,I would recommend him to anyone! You just have to wait to long in the waiting room and the lady out front is not very friendly! She needs another job, not people friendly!

In short, I am glad that Dr. Adams in my GI Dr. With Chron's it is critical to have a Dr you have faith in and feel like you are not just a number. I moved to the area and had to establish with a GI Dr. The first time I meet him, he spend about 45 minutes learning my history and talking. It was not the normal see a nurse and then see the Dr for 5 minutes (if lucky) visit. I would give 5 stars; however, the one negative is that they are always running very late and you must account for this.

I took my husband to see Dr. Adams, appt was at 1:15. The office was full so we had to sit outside, (mind you it's 97° here,) at 4:00, The receptionist at the front desk (who was rude as can be) got smart with my husband when he asked how much longer. So I went to talk to her and all she could do was give me attitude too. Needless to say, we left and will NOT be going back. I don't care how good of a Dr he may be, his staff is the WORST!
