UnHappy show details UnHappy
by Kris on Mar 19th, 2015

I have gone to this doctor twice. The first time in 2001 and saw an associate of his. I had a fusion and I was still in a lot of pain after wards but they didn't try to find out why. Then in 2006/2007 after my pain getting to wear I could not walk Dr. McAdams did several test where I was left a in the hall at hospital for hours after wards alone, they messed up drawing blood from my arm for a blood patch and I bleed all over the place, then he told me he couldn't find what was causing me the pain and I just had to learn to live with it. Another doctor from another group found the problem with one X-ray and had me in for my second Fusion. I will never go to this doctor again nor will I tell anyone ells to go to him.

I have be going to Dr. Mcadam for 10 years for various degenerative back and neck problems. He has operated on me twice with excellent results. What I like best about Dr. Mcadam is his straight forward diagnosis and clear no nonsense explanation of your problem and what the best solution is. I would recommend him to anyone back or neck problems

Wait time was too long for me. Check in and out was extremely slow. Dr. McAdams is knowledgable and I trust what he says.

This surgeon should be forced into retirement. I spent 5 years having 4 different revision surgeries to "undo" what he did. Tried no conservative treatments and opted for the most major fusion surgery. He lost his priveldges to operate in all but one area hospital.

This office makes you feel like just another bovine in the herd. It is very evident that Dr McAdam is not in this business for the patients, but rather for the monetary rewards. I have had multiple issues with getting them to complete FMLA paperwork required by my employer anytime im out for my back troubles. He doesnt listen to the patients concerns at all. Im my case, the epidurals take about a week to kick in. He insists on telling me that I am not in pain instead of listening to my description and intensity of the pain. Cant walk without crutches or a walker in some cases due to the pain, but apparently it doesnt matter. When your ego or pride takes a priority over the patients comfort and well being, you have lost touch with the fact that with no patients you have no practice. He does not need to be practicing any longer in my humble opinion.

During and After My husbands operation he had a bad experience that he has to live with the rest of his life. This doctor did not address serious issues of concern that were brought to his attention. Waiting room time was longer than doc visits. Doc wasn't attentive enough to recommend other therapy, test, or specialist. A second operation was needed to undo and redo what this doctor did. This doctor should not be practicing.

I have used this physician for over two years for a degenerative injury. He is without question one of the best and most experienced in his profession. Always to the point and professional. He doesn't mince words or waste your time. Nor does he need you to waste his. If you have questions and concerns he takes the time necessary to answer your questions and make you feel comfortable. After 39 years of experience he doesn't have to spend a lot of time asking questions and evaluating your answers. He conducts tests and is result oriented, although a very conservative doctor. Dr. McAdams is not quick with the knife and works with you and your family to develop a treatment plan that works with your lifestyle. If you want this doctor to spend loads of time with you and coddle your every whim he is not the one you need to see. If you don't want your time wasted and want a treatment course that works for you then he is your guy.
