Verified Patient Reviews
I really like Dr.John Adams. He is very knowledgeable, professional and friendly- I really recommend him for any visits.
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.
Dr. Adams always takes the time to consider all the options. He makes thorough notes on symptoms and is a great listener. I really trust his evaluations.
Excellent and proficient!
Super professional, knowledgeable, friendly and most importantly, he listens.
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
Great as always.
Great bedside manner, actually cared about my well being and followed up the next day. I could not be happier with the service I receive from Dr Adams.
Cannot recommend Dr. Adams more. Great bedside manner, always friendly, helpful, friendly, answers all your concerns and genuinely cares about you.
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?
He was very thorough with his examinations. Made me feel very comfortable to share any issues. I plan to take him up as my permanent primary physician.
He was so low key and to the point. He explained everything and was so kind and genuine.
Dr Adams always takes the time to listen and talk to me. His bedside manner is consistently amazing, something you don't find easily in NYC. He is very personable, friendly, caring and professional. You always know you're in good hands.
Dr. Adams is always very professional. I had no problems with making my appointment.
Very pleasant overall experience. Happy to have Dr Adams as my primary physician.
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.
No problems at all. Dr. Adams was very pleasant and informative.
Aside from waiting about 20 minutes for the appointment to start, Dr. Adams was very knowledgeable and helpful, and I will be using him as my primary care doctor for the future.
Received confirmation of my morning appt, only to be told by the receptionist that my appt moved to 1 hour later. However I wasn't told of the change until AFTER I approached her after sitting in the waiting room for 30min.
Dr. Adam's is the best primary care physician I have worked with, he is very attentive, professional and efficient and he's also a very friendly and nice guy. Highly recommended!
Highly recommend Dr. Adams...sweet, informative, and asks you questions. Plus, the office is beautiful!
Great experience - very timely and professional. I was seen right away and the digital sign-in / forms process was very simple and intuitive.
Dr Adams is caring and compassionate, he makes you feel at ease very quickly. Seems very knowledgeable and like he actually cares about how I feel. I needed to get a scan done, he called ahead and made sure the imaging place could fit me in. I'm very happy that I stumbled upon his practice, I would recommend him to anyone.
The wait time was long because he had an emergency but I was happy with my visit and he was very nice.
Fantastic and capable.
The entire experience was outstanding. Aside from the stunning office(bonus), Dr. Adams was thorough, engaging and put me at ease. In addition, his physician assistant was attentive and super nice. I highly recommend.
Great visit. Would see again
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!
It was a bit of a wait, but that's what I normally expect from a doctor's office. Dr. Adams was great. He listened and addressed my concerns in a professional manner.
Excellent can't say anymore than that from reception, assistant and the doctor all were great
I've been seeing Dr. Adams for 1.5 years, he's very professional, helpful, and kind. I've never had a relationship with a doctor that I felt so at ease with! The office is very lovely as well, beautiful bright space.
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!
The office is really clean and open and the staff is incredibly courteous. Dr. Adams was incredibly easy to talk to, which was important as I felt that I could ask a lot of follow up questions about my condition. Would definitely recommend.
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.
Dr. Adams was great and so was the first attendant who saw me. I felt supported.
Kind. Attentive. Warm. Genuine. Caring.
As the star rating indicates, I highly recommend Dr. John Adams as your primary care physician. He is very attentive and will listen to your concerns. I have been seeing him for primary care for about three years now.
Dr. Adams took the time to explain his diagnosis and made me feel confident he would help me to cure it.
Always a pleasure seeing Dr. Adams. Highly recommend.
Fantastic, quick, helpful.
Doctor was arrogant and didn't do the procedure we agreed upon. When I inquired about pricing on something he actually said "hey this is 5th Ave" when I went immediately back to the office to get the procedure he said he would originally do they actually expected me to wait again for the rest of the patients to be seen.
Thorough and extremely detailed. Highly recommended
I was asked to come in 15 minutes earlier than my appointment time, and was left sitting for over an hour until the doctor finally came to see him. He took under 5 minutes to examine me very superficially. At the end,he left, without even shaking my hand or properly saying good bye. All of that, for a ridiculous sum.
Dr. Adams and his assistant made me feel very comfortable. Appreciated the care and concern.
Respectful experience by both the doc and assistant. Very professional and problem solved easily without over testing and over analysis.
Helpful, thorough and friendly. Perfect.
A very nice guy, great bedside manner, very easy to talk to, he explained the diagnosis and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him.
Would highly recommend! Was very interested in helping and also great advice on cost options with my health plan from the assistant.
Dr. Adams was great! I was seen within minutes of arriving to the office and the front desk was very friendly. Dr. Adams was very professional and knowledgable. Would definitely recommend this doctor!
He's great! Would make all further appointments with him. Very direct and to the point.
Dr. Adams was very patient and spent a lot of time answering my many questions. I highly recommend.
My visit was a very good one, no time wasted. Dr. Adams was friendly and made me feel comfortable.
He was very professional and personable. Excellent doctor with an excellent staff and location.
Dr Adams was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Highly recommended and straightforward.
Dr. Adams is a great listener.
Everytime I visit Dr. Adams it's a great experience. I'm usually seen right away, the staff is knowledge and friendly, and Dr. Adams is great. Always helpful and goes above and beyond.
So nice and a great listener
Doctor Adams was GREAT. He was very patient as I went through my extensive list of insane health grievances, gave me good advice, and said i looked, "Very youthful." I want to make clear that this was a direct quote. Also, the office was clean and new, if you care about that sort of thing. Vote for John Adams is a vote for America.
Excellent everything except unacceptable that there is a one hour wait time in an upscale office like this.
Dr. Adams is kind, knowledgable and an excellent PMD.
Very professional and thorough.
It was a good experience. He is very professional and communicative.
Dr. Adams and the rest of the team were professional, friendly, and very diligent. Thank you!
Great, very professional. I felt very comfortable in the clinic.
Great Doctor ! He listened attentively to my situation and provided the best solution.I felt comfortable with this doctor visit and i would definitely go again !
I went twice, once for a physical and once for follow up blood work, and I won't be returning. Both times, despite having appointments, left me with over an hour wait time. They seem rushed and under staffed. The assistants seem flustered and confused about daily operations. Both times I was told I would be given a call about my blood work, both times I was the one who had to call. It'd be one thing if my blood work came back 100% normal, but it didn't. The doctor saw something not okay with my results and still didn't bother to share the info. Thanks. Not returning.
Dr. Adams is very friendly, intelligent and professional
Not prepared to perform bloodwork for annual physical. Would not recommend as a GP.
Nice place, feels legit.
Dr Adams was great! I booked him as a PCP (he is inside a dermatology clinic). And he helped me with medical and dermatological issues!
I thought he was smart knowledgable, and I'll be back
I felt comfortable around him.
Very competent,great bedside manner, seemed very thorough. Though the wait was over a half hour he took his time with me so i appreciated that
Very professional and intelligent. Highly recommend.
Great appointment and great location. Very clean and lovely office. John Adams was very friendly and his staff was the sweetest! I would highly recommend this place. The only thing is, you get a little confused because it's inside a dermatology office but they do internal medicine as well.
Great doctor, very friendly
He's the best
First impression, office was very clean and front desk welcoming. Staff were both friendly and professional displaying excellent communication skills. Dr. Adams was genuine and easy to talk to, a relief for a first visit. Happy to establish as a primary care.
Great office, great staff, greet doctor.
Dr Adams was very nice, asked all the right questions for an annual physical and even took a look at my stitches that I had from over a week prior. This is a dr that really cares about his work and his patients.. I highly recommend him and he is now my primary dr.
Most pleasant doctor I have ever been too.
He was great and his assistant was such a sweetheart. They had a problem processing my paperwork so I had to wait for a little over 30 minutes but I had the time for it and the waiting room was very comfortable so I did not mind at all. THey also apologize for it. Highly recommended.
Didn't have to wait at all. Office was clean and staff was friendly. The doctor did a thorough exam and answered all my questions.
thorough, friendly, professional
Great service, nice office, very friendly doctor!
Great Doctor. Amazing Clinic. Friendly Staff. My only issue was the wait time -- If you block off enough time, then there will not be an issue.
Very friendly and professional!
He's a very nice doctor, seemed very honest and professional. Easy to talk to and didn't rush me. The office experience was nice too, it doesn't look like a doctor's office its very roomy and airy. The nurse even offered me a bottle of water which I can say no other doctor's office has asked me before.
I was overall pretty happy with my visit bar the following: unsolicited dermatology consultation, exaggerated speculation over the effect of my weight (which left me with genuine fear that my death was imminent), and finally (related) numerous unnecessary and expensive tests with no relevant medical justification that resulted in a whopping bill that had haunted me for over a year only to conclude that I was actually in pretty good health with no cause for concern. I also docked an additional star for my fruitless treatment by the general manager of the practice who was completely incapable of soliciting any additional justification for my insurance company to explain why the doctor felt it was necessary to run the tests at all.
I had to wait around for a bit even on a seemingly slow/quiet day but I guess what doctor's office doesn't make you wait. Other than that great experience here. Dr. Adams is friendly and attentive and the facilities are top notch.
He's patient, thorough, and listened to what I has to say.
Dr Adams is very knowledgable and professional.
Great place very clean and professional !!!!
excellent as always
Very Friendly and professional.
I went in to see Dr. Adams last minute for help with extreme foot pain. Dr. Adams was thorough and was open to my self diagnosis which turned out to be accurate. The only negative was that I waited over 45 minutes to see him. Great personality; I will go back for a physical.
Went for a physical right before I was about to lose health insurance. I try to avoid doctors as much as possible, but Dr. Adams was courteous, friendly, and clearly explained everything he was doing and recommending. The office is beautiful and the staff was helpful.
Dr. Adams and his staff were attentive and helpful. I didn't feel rushed, and I felt like all my questions were answered. The space is gorgeous.
Dr. Adams is always patient and addresses my questions in a calm, factual manner that instills confidence. Good for hypochondriacs!
Only problem was that I filled out the papers beforehand via ZocDoc, but they did not have them. I had to refill out. Otherwise, had an A+ experience.
Nice, helpful and informative. Great office, and I got a next day appointment.
It was my first visit, I felt Dr. Adams was very thorough, both with his exam and with any tests that I needed done. There was absolutely no wait time which was fantastic. Overall I was very happy.
I went in just to get an overall exam but got way more out of it. He helped me with a some long standing skin issues as well as managing an ongoing medical issue. Dr. Adams, as well as his staff, are always attentive and supportive. I have seen him for almost 2 years and don't plan to switch doctors anytime soon.
It was great, he's a good guy.
I have always had a great experience on all my visits to Dr. Adams. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Adams is knowledgable, attentive, and puts me at ease asking all of my health questions.
Dr. Adams is an amazing doctor. I would recommend him to any friend - and have! Not only is he incredibly capable and intelligent, but he takes the time to explain the medical issues with detail. He is calm and reassuring. Moreover, one gets the sense that he is genuinely interested in his patients' recovery and he makes himself available for follow up questions.
Good visit, nice staff
Great no nonsense, easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable
Dr. Adams is friendly, professional, and puts his patients at ease with his excellent bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Overall he was excellent. Dr. Adams is very thorough and ran a variety of tests (blood tests, urine samples, nose and throat swabs) to get to the bottom of my illness. I've never had a doctor be so thorough and engaged. It's obvious he takes his work and patients very seriously. I will definitely be back.
Really nice and thorough. Will definitely come back and also recommend to friends.
Quick and efficient and thorough. Highly recommended.
I came in for a general physical, and everything went smoothly. Everyone was nice, clean space, and Dr. Adams didn't make me feel rushed at all. Felt really thorough.
Besides the fact that his name is awesome, he was super nice and friendly. Definitely knew what he was doing and asked tons of comprehensive-type questions. All in all it was a great visit! The waiting area and exam room very very nice as well. The only negative thing I can think of is that the Eastern European receptionist/nurse/whatever was very "harsh" (read: very uninterested in anything other than what she was doing and showed it by using very clipped sentences) ...and didn't really seem prepared or know what was going on. Unrelated side note: I couldn't stop staring at his BEAUTIFUL eyes!
Great - very friendly and doesn't rush
Dr. Adams was very professional, kind, and had a great sense of humor. The purpose of my visit was straightforward, but in conversation he seemed highly knowledgeable and trustworthy. He also has an excellent name. His assistant was stellar and the office staff was very helpful and friendly. Overall, I had a smooth and pleasant experience.
Great Doc. Nice office space.
The Doc is great. The support staff leaves a lot to be desired, cold and not engaging.
Dr. Adams is a no-nonsense former ER doctor whose practice happens to be located in a fancy dermatologists office. Convenient location and lovely waiting room. I had an exceptionally good experience with both him and the nurse who attended me.
Dr. Adams, is friendly and personable. He got straight down to business but I didn't feel rushed. He answered all of my questions and even made a few jokes. Looking forward to seeing him again in a month!
Dr. Adam was lovely. I just came for a quick check-up (I'd gone camping and was worried about ticks). He was thorough, professional and very helpful. Would definitely recommend.
Good guy, offered personable, yet still professional opinions.
Professional and thorough. He didn't rush things and asked a lot of questions and listened. He was wary of doing any unnecessary tests. Pleasant to talk to, and made me feel comfortable about asking any questions, no matter how stupid. Also, his name is John Adams! Way better than my last doctor, Howard Taft.
Thorough, direct and has excellent post-check up support.
Very attentive, listens and advises on your questions and concerns. Never felt the "rush out the door" that you often feel during other visits.
Super nice and friendly and a gorgeous office!!!
Dr. Adams is one of the best doctors I have ever had. I have recommended him to other people I know and they have thought just the same. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable, and his staff is pleasant and attentive
This is my second visit with Dr. Adams. Again, I have nothing but great things to say about it. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who asks.
Dr. Adams saw me quickly, was concerned that my prescription was working well for me, and always a pleasure to see.
Dr. Adams is probably the best doctor that I've ever encountered in the city. And his practice, NYDG, is immaculate and staffed with very helpful/nice assistants and administrative staff. While I could tell that it was a busy afternoon in the office, Dr. Adams still took ample time with me to ease my concerns and plan a course of action that got me feeling better within a couple of days. Dr. Adams' sense of humor and attention to detail were greatly appreciated - I'll definitely be back in the future!
45min wait is unacceptable, especially since all I needed was a script filled.
He is simply the best!
Dr. Adams is absolutely the best
My visits with Dr. Adams are always excellent. I'm seen very quickly, staff are knowledgeable and pleasant, and Dr. Adams himself is thorough and walks through all of my questions and answers in ways that are very easy to understand. I'd highly recommend Dr. Adams for anyone tat is looking for a doctor.
Him and his staff are very friendly. I felt comfortable talking to him and the office environment is beautiful. all around professional and would recommend to friends looking for a primary doc.
Dr. Adams is by far the best primary care physician I have ever seen. He clearly cares about his patients' well being. He is meticulous and informative taking the time to address any questions and explain even the smallest details. His offices are beautiful and the his staff members are all helpful. I am sure that I will continue to see Dr. Adams for years to come and highly recommend him as one of the best doctors in NYC.
He's awesome. Puts you at ease and is very knowledgable.
Beautiful waiting area, friendly front desk staff, kind nurse, and a very personable doctor. Will definitely continue to see him as my primary car physician.
Dr. Adams was very pleasant and gave me clear instructions how to treat my problem. The office was beautiful and conviently located, and the staff was nice. I would definitely go back to Dr. Adams.
This is Manhattan: one can easily find a much more attentive and knowledgeable GP, and a more professionally running doctor's office.
Dr. Adams was very thorough and seemed very personable. The facilities were top notch. I will definitely be seeing him again.
I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Adams and all of his staff. I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Adams and he did a great job of explaining everything that was going to happen during my visit. I would highly recommend checking him out.
Very relaxed and courteous
Having visited a few primary care physicians in New York, Mr. Adams demeanor and knowledge were refreshing. A positive experience all around and very nice offices!
Excellent doc, quick wait, nice office.
Knowledgeable, courteous and very professional.
Gorgeous offices, slick polite team and great manner.
I went to this doctor twice for a problem and he couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. I would never go back to him again
Beautiful office, helpful staff, no complaints!
Great office, attentive doctor
Great facilities. Dr. Adams' bedside manner and thoroughness was excellent.
Nice, clean modern facilities. Dr. Adams seems personable making him easy to talk to.
The office was great and everyone who worked there was friendly and very accommodating. Dr. Adams went above and beyond what I've experienced with other doctors in New York.
punctual and thorough. very chic, cool offices as well.
I found Dr. Adams through ZocDoc, made an appointment for the next day online. Went in a little early to my appointment, and the receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. My appointment was for 3:00 pm, I waited about 10 minutes before the nurse brought me into the exam room, she was extremely apologetic for the wait time (10 minutes to me is nothing, considering some doctors make you wait up to an hour). She asked me all the new patient questions and left stating that Dr. Adams would be in shortly, I waited about 5 minutes when Dr. Adams poked his head in and said he was just finishing up, and that he would be with me as soon as possible. Dr. Adams returned to the exam room after about 5 minutes, he gave me his complete attention and was very thorough on his answers and very attentive, he helped me with medical problems that I didn't think there was an answer to, as other doctors told me I would have to wait it through, and he said that was nonsense and gave me a routine to take care of the problem! I would highly recommend Dr. Adams to anyone who is looking for a doctor that will listen to their patient and take care of the problem with full compassion and understanding.
