She took over since my prior doctor left and moved. She was great! She answered all of my questions, very down to earth, and had excellent bedside manners. I'll be looking forward to seeing her again when its time for my next appointment??

I previously saw another Doctor here and saw Dr. Adams when my other one left. I’m so glad I did! I’m a healthcare professional myself and it was wonderful to meet someone that gave a great balance of understanding I workin healthcare but also did a very thorough physical to make sure nothing was missed. She went above and beyond giving me tips on shoulder exercises to help some nagging pain and talked through goals for the next year. Highly recommend!

Dr. Adams is one of the best doctors, if not THE best, I have ever seen. She takes time to get at health issues that are important to you and does a great job of fully explaining why something is happeningand/or how to fix it. Her knowledge of your health history is impressive and she takes a holistic approach to health. Couldn't recommend her more!

This was my first appointment with Dr. Adams and I was very impressed. She was attentive, knowledgeable, compassionate, and encouraging. My exam was quick, but did not feel rushed. She listened to all of my concerns, responded to each of them,and ensured we would work together to find answers and solutions. She was very professional and kind. Regarding the office, the staff was excellent and I was seen right away, which almost never happens at the doctor. I will be seeing Dr. Adams again and recommend her as well.

Dr. Adams was amazing. I was in before my appointment time, she spent a great deal of time face to face with me and talked through my history as well as medical reasoning behind the things they ask you to do,and she also does GYN services, so it’s great to have someone as knowledgable and friendly as her being both a primary care physician and women’s services physician. I will definitely be going back

Dr. Adams demonstrated the correct balance of being approachable and being professional. I felt that we talked about the clinical issues presented in a thorough manner. She did not give me the vibe that she is too busy to briefly attendto a matter that I brought up at the end of my examination--a bonus ! Yes, I left the office feeling confidant that I was heard and treated well.

Dr. Adams is wonderful. I have been on the hunt for a good PCP to stick with, which had proven to be difficult. Dr. Adams sat down with me for way longer than most doctor's do, which is exactly what I'vebeen looking for. She asked relevant and detailed questions to help come up with a plan that fits my medical needs. I am so glad I came here and will be seeing Dr. Adams in the future!

Dr. Gillian Adams might be my new Primary Care Doctor! I have been in search of a good one for the past few months. She is very kind, intelligent, and thorough. The only negative thing I experienced from my visit wasthat the front office people did not pick up my calls when I called 3 times trying to locate the building. My GPS led me BEHIND the actual building so I called and no one picked up the first 3 times until I called the 4th time and someone finally answered. When I walked in 1 minute later after finding parking, I see that there are NO patients in the waiting area and 2 available front desk people just sitting there...

My first time seeing Dr. Adams was amazing! I booked through the app, and was able to get an available appointment the same day. She took me right on time in the afternoon and spent an hour with me going overmy medical history, my immediate medical needs, and a plan for my future health goals. She was very personable, understanding, and thorough in her explanations using layman's terms. She gave me a concise list of objectives that I needed to work on in order for her to help me improve my health.
