not very good care

dr adams was supposed to remove a small skin cancer on my noise. after two different cuts on the first visit he said he got all the cancer. it came back several months later. he cut some more off my noise and said he got it all this time. now after a couple years it is back and now have to have more serious surgery on same area dr adams said was clear. current dermatologist said he did a terrible job. he may be great at giving out lotions but I wouldn't let him cut on any one I know.

NOT AS WONDERFUL AS SOME MIGHT THINK

The list of negatives is long. Treated me as though he reAlly didn't care. Did biopsy. Sent results in mail. No followup. According to new dermatologist he prescribed wrong medicine. Wait in waiting rooftop long and wait in exam room even longer. He forgot me and did several other patients before he came in and told me he forgot me. Next appt I was showed up and he wasn't even there that day.needless to say, i won't be going back.

Honest

Saw Dr. Adams for a rash my other dermatologist was giving my high dose cortisone for. What I like about him is that he stopped the cortizone and did a biopsy because he admitted he "did not know" what I had on my legs. All doctors act like they know everything. Dr. Adams was honest about it. He said he didn't know but would find out and not just treat me with cortisone. I have thyroid edema on my legs and he figured it out. He also helped my sister in law with her anxiety and rash. It is hard to find a dcotor to admit they don't know everything.
