Frustrated with making appointments.

I think Dr. Adema is a good doctor. However, it is not easy to see my Dr. at just anytime. I have to go to urgent care for problems like UTI's and nosebleeds. Why is it as a patient I cannot call and be seen in a decent amount of time?

Very caring doc!!! But not for emergency needs. :- /

I love Dr Adema!!! He's been very supportive of my special needs!!! But when there is an emergency need, he cannot see you for a week or move. When you call in with a question about a need, you do not get a reply. I was in ER, then hospital, then needed a skilled nursing facility. All of these did not know how or want to understand my needs to take care of me. Called Dr Adema, family doc for some help. But nothing. I had no advocate to get the help I needed. The 2nd time in ER, Hosp, Skilled nursing, I was in agony from lack of meds and could not move or sleep. But doc there says I have to wait 2 more days to see facility's doc for changes to meds. I was forced to go to ER and then home (which was extremely difficult because I was already disabled before my falls. I had no one to help me!!! :-( I was all alone, cuz all the docs I saw had no clue. Dr Adema thankfully does, but he is overworked, doing too much. He does care and really want to help people. He is just overwhelmed at times with too many special need patients.

Should not have a practice

After reading all the reviews of Dr. Adema I find that a lot of people experienced similar negative experiences. He really does not care about follow up or referring out to specialists. He does not seem to want to get involved if the case might be difficult. Dr. Adema is not supportive and does not follow through on what emergency docs have suggested regarding a patient. Plus the staff is rude and not helpful.It concerns me greatly that he is in still in practice.
