I have been what I would call a good long time client of Dr. Adams, that is why I am so upset on how he handled a "simple", if any surgery may be considered so, surgery in 2016. Going into this procedure I had the greatest respect for him, a definite 5 Star. However, when staples are used on the bottom of the foot when there was no need to, other than to finish quicker. Continual trouble, inc nerve damage, infections, numbness. confirmed with Ortho Dr. Never use staples on this location/surgery
