Dr. Adams is such an amazing doctor. He is the most knowledgeable, caring, compassionate doctor I've ever had. He takes time going over the diagnosis from start to finish as well as all possible treatment options. As busy as he is I have never feel rushed, he always makes you feel like your his only patient. He's very understanding and listens to all my concerns and he always puts my mind at ease. From the first time meeting him while I was a patient in the hospital to office visits and my 1st colonoscopy he has by far exceeded my expectations. I'm thankful to be able to be his patient and truly appreciate everything he has done for me.

I was so scared about my upcoming surgery (sigmoid colectomy). I researched, met with others and was Frank with Dr. Adams. He never once took offense and walked me through everything. Every encounter was reassuring. Now, after surgery I am more than grateful with the kindness and time he took to help me understand what was to happen. He was very explicit that he would do what needed done for my safety and health - even if it meant a colostomy bag. While giving me statistics that a bag would be unlikely, he still counseled me on the probability (he would not take shortcuts). I did not end up with a bag! His professional surgical skills are impeccable, his bedside manners are amazing. I wish there were more doctors like him - people who truly care about their patients and love what they do.

Dr. Adams explains things thoroughly for you to understand in case of surgery. He takes time out to talk with his patients virtually since we are in the covid situation. Dr. Adams is very pleasant guy. Plus he takes even more time out to answer your questions if you have any. Stacey J.

Dr. Adam's is a great Doctor. One thing I'm not happy with is when he is done with your surgery he is not their to explain how things went. Then when you have an appointment after surgery you still don't get to see him you have to see his PA.

Dr. Adams is a kind, smart, compassionate man that happens to be an excellent surgeon. He explained everything that needed to be done. Was considerate and patient and is well thought of by hospital staff. My family was fortunate to have this great man as the surgeon for my husband. He is an excellent surgeon and doctor.

I can't say enough about Dr Adams. From the moment I met him I knew he was going to be an awesome physician. He explained my surgery (at initial office visit) and again before my surgery at the hospital. Words of appreciation and thanks are not enough for Dr. Timothy Adams and his entire office staff. The entire ambulatory surgery staff at Kenmore Mercy were amazing.

In my opinion,every Dr. should treat their patients the way Dr. Adams cared for me. He has the most calming, sincere,patient bedside manner I have ever seen. I never felt rushed thru my appt.,he spoke in words my husband and I could completely understand, and he never wanted me to agree to surgery without really thinking about it and being sure. After 2 surgeries I feel that he gave me back my quality of life, making it possible for me to enjoy eating again.I give him the highest recommendation.

I have had SEVERE GI problems for a few years. I have been to specialists who essentially seemed to give up on me. Dr. Adams did my gall bladder surgery but did not stop there. He and his nurse practitioners worked with me to figure out my lower GI issues until a solution was found. I will be eternally grateful to them all for caring. They are overall very thorough and explain EVERYTHING!!
