After going to 5 Ortho Surgeons over the past 6 years and trying to put off my ACL reconstruction, I visited Dr. Adams. My hesitations with surgery (3rd knee operation) were: downtime and anesthesia. I had previously had a spinal with sedation during my past knee surgeries. None of the other 5 doctors I went to would even entertain the idea. Dr Adams was very open to it and expressed to me that it did not affect what he had to do to my knee. I am 5 weeks post op and feeling great! Great exp!

I've seen Dr. Adams for 15 years and there is no better Orthopedic Surgeon in DFW. I've run marathons all my life but have had to transition to cycling. Dr. Adams has helped me stay active and achieve my goals all the time giving sound medical advice. I've had 3 arthroscopic knee surgeries and a toe surgery and each time I've had great outcomes. The staff is always courteous, professional and accommodating. Never left his office where I thought they rushed me out of the office.

Dr. Adams is a very smart down to earth doctor who provides me with options in treating my knee pain. I have been receiving monovisc injections in both knees for a couple of years now, and am getting great pain relief and improved mobility. Recently, I had a Morton's Neuroma (ball of food pain) removed from my foot. It has only been a couple of months and already the pain is significantly less (total healing is about six months).

Dr Adams was personable and patient. He offered me alternatives to surgery and is not pushing me to go forward until I am ready. He seems to care about each patient

Wonderful staff. Wonderful doctor. Left his office on first visit and knew i was in good hands.

It's an amazing surgery performed by Dr. Adams that eliminated my years of pain on my right knee and allows me to resume my beloved sport - golfing in just 2 short months. I'm a happy person because of Dr. Adams.

THE BEST! Knee replacement done by Dr. Adams three months ago. I was up and walking without a cane within 4 weeks. Recently moved here from California where I spent years in debilitating pain, wait months for appt to see specialists, who would recommend physical therapy, or a brace, or cortisone shots that did nothing. Told I was too young (at 55) for surgery and lose some weight, difficult when you can't walk on leg. Now am climbing stairs, have lost weight, and have my quality of life back!

Dr Adams was very good at explaining what the total knee replacement was. He made me feel comfortable with it and the surgery was very successful. I loved the way he stitched me up as there is only a hair line scar that runs down my knee. I can't say enough about his professionalism.
in Fairview, TX |
I had a superior experience with Dr. Adams and his staff. He explained the procedure thoroughly, answered my questions and didn't push me into surgery for my knee replacement until I was ready. He is very professional, great bedside manner, and is interested in getting great res by understanding the patients situation. I believe that the risks of the surgery were minimized with his techniques and hospital choices. I will have my 2nd knee replacement done this summer with Dr. Adams.
in McKinney, TX |
Dr. Adams as been amazing through my acl surgery. I've had this done twice now and I can say this surgery compared to my last has been night and day. My recovery has been twice as fast compared to my first. I would absolutely recommend him having seen a handful of surgeons and my feeling he has been the most knowledable. I have to have a procedure on my other knee at the end of the year and will not be going anywhere else!
in Farmersville, Texas |
Dr. Adams is excellent doctor / surgeon. Very knowledgeable. I have had four surgeries with him (Both knees and both hips replaced). And have nothing but the highest respect and confidence in him. Basically, he's my hero, he gave my life back to me.
in Plano, TX |
He spent 2-3 minutes with me, had no interest in fixing the problem. He was in a hurry. I had knee pain, gave me steroids which made my pain worse. Save your time and dollars and keep away from him!
in Wylie, TX |
Talked to me for about two minutes, looked like he just got off his horse, made a joke about my mastectomy, thought I was someone else and asked about my left ankle when it was my right heel, then misdiagnosed me!! : (
in Howe, Tx |
Excellent! Informative and compassionate care.
