Positive Comments

If your lucky you'll be one of those patients who repsonds well to enberel or humira without side effects.

Negative Comments

Adams acts like he is constantly distracted and uninterested whatever you have to say or ask. He loves Enberel and Humira and will shove a script in your face and rush you out the door. He is in a big hurry to get in and get out. If you have side effects from the med's he is hard to get a hold of, and you MIGHT get a call back from his nurse who will discount anything you say as a possible side effect of the med, even though the side effect is listed on the med's paperwork! Everything is denied. Get a good local Dr. to help you fend off all the side effects.

General Comments

Adams is the only Rheumo for miles and he has a reputation amongst his peers as being more interested in dollars than his patients. This is my impression of him. He has the bed side manner of a stone. It takes months to get an appointment and follow up is non existent. you get treated like a lab rat and when one med doesnt work he'll just shove another one in your face. Any feedback on your condition, its genesis, or beneficial changes in your diet, lifestyle, physical therapy, or alternative treatment is non existent. Hope you have great insurance and they are willing to shell out for very expenisve meds into infinity without cutting you off. He will max them out. Also be prepared to get a bill for charges you already paid for!
