New York, NY |
wonderfully kind and knowledgeable physician.
in Scaggsville, MD |
Dr. Adams is a brilliant dermatologist. She diagnosed a very rare skin disease in a matter of weeks, when most people with this disease are misdiagnosed for months and sometimes years. She also assisted me in finding a dermatology specialist that could treat the disease and the treatment that she prescribed along with the treatment of the specialist resulted in the condition substantially clearing in less than 6 months when the average clearing time for this rare skin disease is over 3 years.

It takes to long to get an appt. Then once you are there the wait is extremely long. The customer service is non existent. I have been trying to get a copy of my medical records for over a month and I keep getting the message center. Today I went to the office to pick up the records by hand and the lights are off and no one is here. The time is 3:35pm and the hours on the door say they are open till 4pm. So I call to see if they are closed for in service and they say they are here. Nope. No ?

I was able to make an appointment with Dr. Adams. I called many times over multiple days without the office actually answering the phone. It went to a recorded message each time. I finally left a voice message to call me, but did not receive a call back after two days.
