I have had an on going skin cancer problem for many years. I have been a patient of Dr. Adams for over two years after having a bad experience with another doctor. I have been completely satisfied with Dr. Adams and the staff at Skin Smart and would highly recommend them.

I am overjoyed with my experience with Dr. Adams. He removed a skin cancer from my nose and did it with absolutely no pain. Even more important is that when the stitches were removed, there was such a faded scar that could hardly be seen. Four days later, it was gone. The facility is fabulous and so is he.

Dr. Adams took over my care when my long-term MOHS surgeon relocated. He has done a remarkable job of inserting himself actively into my care. He has had a couple of difficult surgeries to contend with, so to his credit he has persisted and I feel his guidance is helping me get control of a difficult situation. I see Dr. Adams on a regular (3-month) basis, and he has addressed not only the active skin cancers but has helped in modifying behaviors that contributed. I have referred him twice!
