Dr. Adams is extremely knowledgeable and was very thorough during our appointment. I appreciated that the appointment was brief and he was still able to addressed all of my concerns.

I wasn't 100% comfortable. It could be in part because this was the first male doctor I've seen since I was a child. I did feel a little judged when the doctor "bed" on my cholesterol levels. Finding a good vein was difficult. I'm not a fan of needles so when it takes more than one try, I'll admit I can become very short. I do have to go back for a follow up so we will see how things are the second time around.

Pro’s: The facility is sleek and modern, Patient documents are all online via complimentary laptop, They’re five different doctors at this particular location, rooms are kept clean and private, front desk clerical assistants are efficient. Cons: Wait time is excessive- My appointment was scheduled for 2:15pm, I arrived at 1:10pm and did not see the doctor until 2:30pm, Trainee nurses- Nurse forgot to take my weight after taking my blood sample. After completing my physical (while waiting on my assessment results from the doctor) she came back and stated that she would weigh me but did not communicate this to my doctor. I was dismissed from my doctor with no follow-up after my assessment. Not a big deal, on the other hand. While changing in my room, a different male nurse did not knock and entered through a back door, claiming to pick up an item. It was just a bit bizarre. Dr. John Adams- Is an interesting doctor, indeed. Although extremely knowledgeable within his field he is sarcastic and a little distant in making his client feel warm/comfortable. My questions about my body/health was met with sarcastic (not so humorous approach) responses. Being a first time client, I felt silly for inquiring about my own body. After I got use to his personality, I didn’t feel so awkward. He did give me great advice and addressed things that I was not aware of (prescribed antibiotics). Overall, I was satisfied with my service but I can definitely understand how someone of a introverted nature could be intimidated. Especially since physical exams are already intrusive. Side Note: He is on his phone quite a bit during the assessment.

Beautiful office environment. Bit of an involved signing in / registering process and waited in the lobby for a solid 30+ Minutes. Nurse was nice, not a lot of back-and-forth and pretty direct. Doctor was good, asked questions. Nurse + Doctor only took 15 minutes

I was very disappointed with Mr. Adams as my primary doctor. In 2015 he left me a message that made me believe that I had a serious disease. I rushed to him the next day, only to tell me that it was "false positive". During 2017, I had two visits there but the doctor refused to give me the results over the phone forcing me to go for more visiting. After the second visit, he never called to tell me my results. I kept calling for weeks only to finally get an response from the office director that I had to go back for more tests (no explanation as of why as my last tests seemed). This doctor wants additional visits to charge more money. Someone needs to pay for their fancy office in their fancy address! I just requested my medical records and I will find another primary doctor!

Went to Dr. Adams for the first time for a physical. Everything went smoothly and I would definitely recommend. My only complaint the attendant puncturing both my arms in an attempt to draw a blood sample.

Went there for my annual physical exam. A nurse saw me -and tried (and failed ) to draw blood 2x before she called the doctor. The prospect of having blood drawn is stressful as it is - but having someone poke a needle into you 2 times -both arms - and missing to find the vein is pretty horrifying. The doctor offered to try a third time -- but by then, my faith in the practice was lost - how can you employ nurses that do not even know how to draw blood properly?

Dr. Adams is always extremely helpful and is able to deal with both my dermatology and general practitioner questions! The office is very clean and technically more advanced than most I've seen. Him and his assistants use tablets for digital records, which allows them to better track the convos that we've had in the past and see progress. Sometimes it takes a little while to be seen, but when you sit down with him he's extremely approachable and offers a solution quickly.

Dr. Adams has great bedside manner, fully explains everything he is doing and your test results, is very thorough, and there is never a long wait. I've lived in NYC for 5 years and hes the first doctor that has treated me as if he actually cares (unlike the in and out pace of most NYC doctors). Highly recommend him!

Honestly, the best bedside manner I've ever experienced with a doctor. She is calm, funny, and has a warm energy so you do not feel uncomfortable with talking about even the more intimate topics. Totally recommend him, and I have no intentions of going to anyone else. Totally worth my commute from Brooklyn!

Dr. Adams was a great listener, I felt comfortable with him and enjoyed how knowledgeable he was plus his great sense of humor. It's rare to see a doctor in today's modern age who actually takes the time to listen and communicate with you and Dr. Adams did just that. I'd highly recommend him. The service that I received from Dr. Adams concerned me. I thought it was going to be painful and in fact it was the complete opposite. He took the time to carefully explain each detail to me and made sure I understood before moving on. I couldn't thank him enough and will be definitely going back in ten weeks.
