Specialties

Dr. John S Adams has the following 2 specialties

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent Doctor

Very Knowledgeable. Spends much time I needed next to my bedside in the hospital to explain the infection and the procedure that has to be done in order to defeat the bacteria. Put me in ease and I felt confidence that we will win. His office staff especially the nurses are excellent, nice and very helpful, ready 24/7 to help you. I called one time on Sunday evening from Indianapolis and got help.Very nice office. Very highly recommend.

Attitude

I found Dr Adams very knowledgeable in his field but his attitude towards me and my family was very rude and arrogant to the point where we will not work with him again.
