Best physician I have encountered in my 73 years.

I have been a patient of Dr. Adams since 2004. I am pleased with his services and will never go anywhere else unless he or I leave town.

Go somewhere else!

Don't schedule an appt with this office unless you are planning on devoting your entire day to being there. Waiting time is over an hour just to get into a room then another 1/2hr to an hour to see someone for 5 mins. They have the WORST customer service and front desk staff!! I'm still waiting for a response to my call to them 2 days ago. They don't care about your privacy either! I would not recommend them at all!!

I waited a total of 4 weeks for a primary care appointment with dr. adams. I was taken back 30 minutes late and waited an additional 1.5 hours before i was told that dr adams just came back from the hospital and had just seen his earlier patient by one hour. Noone should ever have to wait for any doctor for 2 hours and counting. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I walked out and Not even a phone call from the practice to apologize.

If you value your time, money and patience dont go to this practice

I have been a patient of Dr. Adam for several years. After many frustrating years dealing with this practice I have finally decided to take my business to a practice that is courteous, prompt and not so greedy. I have consistently encountered rude staff and 2 plus hour wait time. My biggest issue with him and his practice is that he always overbooks people to maximize his income for that day, and leaves his patients waiting for at least 2 hours. Some of us actually have to work and our schedules dont permit us to sit around waiting for hours to actually get a prescription. My recent visit was not because I was sick but he had to see me in person in order to give me my prescription. Which I find obscured in more than one way. To me this is clearly his way of getting fees for an office visit out of me when he can easily call in a prescription. I had to take time away from work (my new job, which I got after being 2 years unemployed) and I explained to his very rude nurse that since I am not sick and he does not need to examine anything on me why does he not just call in a script for me, she said he will not call in anything unless I was physically present at the office ( I was just there 3 months prior to get another prescription for the same issue) . So I took time away from my work and went to the office just to find out that my wait time was over 2 hours because they have worked in people who were WITHOUT AN APPPOINMENT ahead of me!!!! When I told them I had to get back to work they simply told me that, this was how they operated and if I couldnt wait I was free to leave, so in essence I wasted 2 hours of my work day to go to this useless appointment just to get no treatment and poor attitude from his staff. On a side note the nurses are rude and very much incompetent along with his lab tech. Their lab tech kept sticking me with the thickest needles available which made my arm so sore I couldnt not move my arm and I bleed profusely and had a bruise for days afterward ( something that I never had had happen to me at any other practice). I even showed it to Adams and asked if I could have a different needle used on me since I bled a lot when she used it. I asked for a certain type of needle and the tech sat there and told me she will not do it. I had to go talk to their office manager to file a complaint against their tech as she was arguing with me and told me she rather use the thinner needles on her other patients. I then had to go talk to their office manager about the issue, and after that the lab tech decided she would not even acknowledge my presence, she didnt even look at me or say like I am going to stick you with a needle after that day some great patient care ! All I have to say is this is by far the worse place on this planet to go to get any medical care. I will tell everyone I can to spread the word and save my friends and family from getting the same poor care/treatment that I have received from this place.
