in Maryville, TN |
My mother is a patient of Dr McAdams and I couldn't ask for better treatment for Mom. Dr. Mcadams is patience, encouraging knowledgeable and helpful. She double checks any medicine interactions and always is looking for a way for things to get better for my mom. Thank you Dr. McAdams.
in Boone, NC |
Dr. McAdams was clear and concise when explaining my diagnosis and yet she was warm and friendly. I felt like she was fully "present" in all of my office visits. I never felt rushed or dismissed, but felt she was really listening whether I was answering her questions or she was responding to my questions.

She's actually a very good doctor if and when you can actually get in to see her. But her office practices are dysfunctional, to put it lightly. We were sometimes seen 3.5 hours AFTER our appointment time! & she actually berated us once for leaving after waiting for 90 minutes because "someone else could have been seen then." ??? Very inconsiderate of people's time. Couldn't get away with these practices anywhere else but Boone. :(
in Boone, NC |
She did not respond to my serious health crisis. She referred me to her Chronic Care Specialist, an inexperienced LPN who was hired to keep patients from having to go to the emergency room. Despite phone calls and hand delivered letters, I did have to seek emergency room treatment and was sent to a rehab facility for the medically induced breakdown I had suffered. After nearly 20 years of being her patient, she had no regard whatever for my suffering.
in Boone, NC |
You are seriously expected to wait 4 hours or more past your appointment as if this were no big deal. My friend was turned away from a rare highly coveted appointment in January for having the previous years proof of coverage(she had coverage!!) and 10 days later had a stroke. Nice work from a bunch of completely unprofessional idiots.
in Mountain City, TN |
The wait time was in excess of 1 hour. The office staff neglected to file insurance paperwork long after promised and needed to be prompted several times. I didn't return after my first appointment.
Creston, NC |
She's excellent but overbooks appointments. Wait times can be 2 or more hours, so don't plan anything else close to appts. with her.
