Dr. Adams is one of a very few doctors that will take the time to explain in Laman terms what problem that I may have at any given time and answer any questions. I really am grateful for his professional experience and help.
Front desk staff wasnt very good but the doctor was great.
He was kind, straightforward, and very professional.
I love my doctor! He listens and takes his time.
He's awesome as always!!! Best GP, I've ever had!
Excellent bedside manor
Came to hear the test result. Waited over 40 min outside to just hear and consult my test result with the doctor. I think is would be better if a call is made by the doctor to let me know about the test result to safe me my time.
Very professional and courteous. Took his time to do the annual physical and explained what he was doing in detail.
He was very professional and made me feel very comfortable, his service was prompt he was very clear on instructions. I would definitely recommend his services.
Very informative and great bed side manner
Excellent primary care doctor, who takes the necessary time to listen to patients and address all their concerns. He is a consummate professional and will remain my primary care doctor of choice.
Very professional and attentive.
Dr. Adams was very thorough, informative, personable and very professional. I was there for an annual physical and he explained how and what he would look for during the examination and my lab results based on my medical history. His staff was very polite and professional as well. I also asked for recommendations for a GYNO and Dermatologist and he took the time to fine 1 of each within the same area and within my insurance network. I relocated back to this area after being away for 20 years and I now feel very comfortable with Dr. Adams as my primary doctor.
Dr. Adams is an extraordinary physician. In addition to his expertise, he actually takes the time to listen to you. I really appreciate that.
I love my Doctor he does not hire staff on front line so I have too appreciate his knowledge and skills as an exceptional professional.
Dr. Adams is very thorough and knowledgeable, and demonstrated great caring and attentive listening in trying to get to the bottom of my condition. He's also very considerate when it comes to giving recommendations for convenient specialist referrals and sending in prescription information.
Dr.Roscoe takes his time with me and my needs , he answer all my questions and doesn't rush me out , he understands my concerns and gets to the root of my issues.
This was my second time being seen by Dr. Adams. He is a caring and considerate professional with an excellent bedside manner. He asks questions that are not too intrusive making you feel comfortable and does so in a way that gathers all the information needed to make a prognosis. He also provided me with all the information I needed to book a follow up appointment with a specialist. Very helpful. The only thing that I didn't/don't like about the visit is the extremely long wait times..even when there appears to be very few patients in the clinic (4:45 appointment, wasn't seen until nearly 6pm by the doctor, left at 6:45). Thank goodness the parking patrol isn't prevalent or I would have definitely gotten a ticket. My advice would be to schedule an appointment when you don't have any pressing plans afterwards.
Dr. Adams is incredible. I've been looking for a reliable primary care physician for quite some time and I know I have the right fit for my future going forward!
Dr. Adams is great, but the time I sit around waiting to be seen is a real problem.
Dr. Adams is a stellar doctor, very knowledgeable, humble, patient-oriented, and despite my numerous health issues, takes the necessary time and attention to ensure that I am treated like a person and not a number.
This was an awesome visit! Dr. Adams didn't just focus on the minor sickness I came in for - he examined my record, took into account my full history as a patient, and gave some useful recommendations for unrelated issues. I felt like he was very invested in helping me feel better, not just from this illness, but for my life in general. Normally the wait time here is very long - the only issue I've ever had with this office in almost a year! - but they took me right back into the office when I arrived. Everyone here is always friendly and compassionate. Can't stop talking about how much I love Dr. Guy and Dr. Adams!
Dr. Adams is thorough, friendly, and takes a genuine interest in the patient.
I have been a patient of dr Adams since 8/2016 and find him to be a superb practitioner with great customer service.
He was very honest, and I was very comfortable telling him my medical history. He made sure he covered all bases, did blood samples... Which none of the doctors I went to thought was needed. He is an awesome doctor, and shows great compassion to his patients.
My visit with Dr. Roscoe Adams was excellent as usual.
Doctor Adams is an excellent doctor. It took me a long time searching for a primary doctor and when he first saw me he was very helpful and he really listened to my health issues. I felt very comfortable talking to him. He is AWESOME!
Dr. Adams is always a pleasure to see, even when I don't feel well. Unfortunately, his office gets really busy on Fridays. Now that I know that, I will do my best to schedule appointments on a different day. I will still come to see him for all my health concerns.
Dr. Adams is absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend him, as he truly cares about his patients and their well-being.
Very pleasant and attentive.
Dr. Adams is a great physician! First time meeting him and I hope that I can pencil him in as my PCP.
Liked the doctor but disappointed with the visit. Made a 3:15 appointment and wasn't seen until 4:15. Wasn't impressed with the check-in process or weigh-in, blood pressure and temperature-taking procedures. Not professional, although the nurse who administered my breathing treatment was. Also disappointed by the fact that the website says that parking is validated when in fact it is not. This alone will preclude me from visiting the Silver Spring office again.
Went in for 2 different problems only got a prescription for one.
Dr. Adams is honestly one of the BEST primary care doctors I've ever had! It's so hard to find a doctor that actually cares about his patients and I get that care everytime I see him. I have frequent kidney issues and he does a better job then my urologist and nephrologist combined! I would highly recommend him for ANY medical needs. He's kind hearted, patient care is beyond excellent, over all 100% satisfied!
The wait is always a tad long, but Dr. Adams is worth it. I never feel rushed. He listens to all my concerns and problems. He verifies that he has answered each of my questions. I never feel dismissed. He is also very personable and non-intimidating as some doctors can be.
As always, very thoughtful, thorough, and professional.
I went for annual check up. I had very bad experience today. I waited the doc. for over one hour and to give blood for blood work another half hour. The doc. talk to me about 2-3 min and walk away with out giving me full check up. No weight or blood pressure was checked. After they took my blood for blood work, They told me I am free to go!
Informative, explained my medical condition professionally and provided literature for my personal records
Dr. Adams is always understanding, professional, and reassuring, as he was today. Wait time in the office is long, but not unreasonably so.
Great Experience. Very receptive and willing to provide helpful and useful information. A Doctor who cares!
Very friendly and professional
Very informative. Takes time to listen and offer suggestions. Excellent Doctor!
Dr Adams was a great doctor. He took time to explain everything that i was having problems with. He was really attentive and i never felt rushed. I did have to wait over 30 mins in the room before he came in but i was worth it.
Very informative, helpful and courteous.
I'm a big fan of Dr Adams. But the assistant was way below par. No introduction. Took my temp and BP AT THE SAME TIME. KEPT JIGGLING the THERMOMETER IN MY MOUTH AND COULDNT GET MY TEMp AT ALL. BY THE TIME SHE WAS DONE MY BP was 160. Over 20 points higher than last time.This is the first time I've had a sub par assistant thus making for a poor experience.. Dr Adams was great as usual.
Even though the office was understaffed today and the wait was over an hour and a half... he did not rush the appointment, he gave me the attention I would hope for and listened to and addressed all my concerns.
Dr Adams was very concerns with my condition. He took the time to explain the symptoms and medications recommend. Very pleasant demeanor and overall great experience as a first time patient!
A lot of doctors should take notes from Dr. Adams he is proficient, easy to talk to and really cares about my health. He is the type of doctor that will listen to you. I was impressed that he actually read my chart, examined what took place during previous visits and addressed them with me without asking the same questions every time I visit like most doctors. He gave me kudos on how I manage my health, that's what every patient wants to hear at the end of the visit. Kudos to Dr. Adams.
Dr Adams was professional knowledable and demonstrated ipecable bedside makers
Dr. Adams have always been a thorough doctor that takes his time to diagnose and explain every complete details for my visit. He have been my doctor for many years and I am completely satisfied with his services.
I was so happy to be able to walk right in to the office and see Dr. Adams without an appointment- especially as a first-time customer! Dr. Adams gave me quality time and did not make my appointment feel rushed in any way. He showed concern about my concerns and even when my strep test showed "negative," he made sure to re-examine me and diagnose my strep throat anyway (it turns out it definitely was strep). He allowed me time to ask medical questions beyond my inflamed/infected throat that brought me in. In the end I felt that all my medical concerns that had been building over time were answered and even treated. So happy to found Dr. Adams within walking distance from home!
Excellent! Doctor Adams is always worth the wait.
Entry to exit is an "A+"!
Throughal and helpful
Claire was awesome!
Despite the longer wait at the lobby, Dr. Adams was the best doctor I've ever seen. He's calm, good listener and knowledgeable.
I like my PCP. He is someone to stick with.
Roscoe Adams was fine. All the Dr.s that I have seen at Metro have been very good.
Really like him. very nice and polite and descriptive. I am highly recommend to other to visit him.
I thought that the offices were well maintained. The front receptionist was quick in helping me. Though there was a bit of confusion on my last name ( I recently got married so my Insurance card has my Maiden name, ) it was a great experience. Dr. Adams was friendly and knowledgable. I will definitely be coming back.
Dr. Adams and his team were very professional and took the time to listen what I have to say about my symptoms. He explained what areas we should be looking at while specifying numbers for a good blood pressure, vitamins levels, EKG among others. In other words, Dr. Adams and his crew provided good customer service.
He really helped me a lot.
Dr. Adams has excellent bedside manner. He thoroughly listen to your concerns. Excellent!!!!!
The wait was a little bit long (~20-30 mins), but it was well worth it. He is very knowledgeable, explains everything that he's looking for and what to watch out for, etc. I'll definitely be coming back.
I think Roscoe Adams is an exceptional physician. However, the front desk needs to do better on customer service and how they talk to patients in general.
He let us wait for more than three hours while having no other patient. God knows what he was doing on his computer, after all that wait time, he spent like 3 min with me(the patient). He is very Unprofessional.
Dr. Adams is one of the best physicians I have ever had: he is very knowledgeable about a wide range of medical disorders and topics, extraordinarily kind, and willing to spend time with his patients. As a former pharmacist, he also knows a great deal about medication. In fact, I have been so happy with his care that he has become my primary care physician. However (with just a few exceptions), I have found the office and other staff to be unwelcoming, aloof, condescending, and not always accurate in the information they provide over the phone or in person.
Overall Dr. Adams had an excellent bedside manner. He's very easy to talk to and made my doctors visit and enjoyable one.
Dr. Adams took the time to explain every detExcellent site and continue thisail of his treatment plan and recommendations
The wait time was long, but the doctor was fantastic.
Dr. Adams was great. He was compassionate and caring and quickly had the answer to why I came in (dizziness caused by ear infections in both ears). He spoke to me in words I could understand without talking down to me. I'm so glad to have found him. The rest of the staff was good as well. They communicated clearly and were very professional.
Great bedside manner, spoke clearly, and made sure to answer my questions before leaving and was not in a hurry.
They got me started early, and were much more prompt than on some earlier occasions, not leaving me sitting on the table twiddling my thumbs for long. Much appreciated. And Dr. Adams, as always, was informative, friendly, and professional.
Very shock at how fast I was in and out.. Years of waiting on doctor and staff to sign you in and come in the room to do the exam. I was in and out in a hour. Very happy with the services . thanks
I like Dr. Adams, and I am happy with his service, however I am not happy about the long wait.
Dr. Adam's has excellent bedside manner
I've been to a lot of doctors, and Dr Adam was honestly the most compassionate and understanding doctor I've met with. He gave great advice and truly cared about helping me. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
Very good doctor. Knowledgeable and personable.
I like Dr. Adams very much, and have great respect for him, but get REALLY tired of being left to sit for an hour or more on the exam table. This has happened roughly 2 out of 3 times I've visited, and it strikes me as inconsiderate and disrespectful of the patient's time.
I love my doctor! He listens and gives great advice!
It was a great experience meeting a highly professional and knowledgeable doctor. I left Dr. Adams office a happier person knowing my health was in great hands.
The was great
Wait was way too long. Visit itself went well
He is very thorough & patient. He listens and give you great advice on health & life!!! Love him!!!!!!!!
Dr Adams is very professional & cares about your health!!!!! He is the best of Immediate & primary care
Outstanding facility and outstanding doctor. Yes, you may have to wait a little bit for any of the Drs here, but it's completely worth it. It's nice to be treated like a human and not an asset.
Another great appointment. Dr. Adams was thorough, patient and very friendly. Very impressed on how he took the time to do further research to ensure that he gave me several treatment options.
My visit with Dr. Adams was great. His bedside manner was excellent and I fell like I'm getting the right treatment from a great doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Adams if you're in the market for a new primary care physician.
Dr.Roscoe is very knowledgeable and spends lot of time talking and listening to your concerns. You don't feel rushed. Also since he is very knowledgable about pharmacy and drugs, he is great at recommending cost effective prescription which ends up saving a ton of money.
Outstanding physician. In my experience, definitely the best at Metro Immediate and Primary Care. Excellent diagnostician, exemplary bedside manners. Thank you Dr. Adams for your exceptional service to the DC community.
Dr Roscoe is worth waiting for. He spends time with is patients and he does know what he is doing. There are many Doctors around but this is one to stick with. HE KNOWS HIS JOB VERY WELL.
Very thorough and walked me through everything to expect and even informed of what to look for with different illnesses, infections, etc.
First visit as a new patient which went very well. The reception staff were friendly, it was nice to be greeted right away. Dr. Adams was pleasant and it was nice to have a doctor explain in detail and entertain any questions or concerns I had regarding my health. No rushing, I was given the information I needed. Very happy with my visit and hope to continue to receive the same type of service in the future.
It was a great relief to find my doctor and be under his care again. Dr.Adam's has always had a very good bedside manner one that is compassionate and understanding. He doesn't just want to help you feel better, he wants to know why you feel bad and get to the root of the situation.
Dr. Adams was really nice. He really knows his work. Makes you feel really comfortable, answers all your questions. I came in for a physical and he explained exactly what he will be doing and the proper blood work for a physical. I am so happy with his care he will definitely be my primary care doctor.
Dr. Adams is amazing. From the moment he started speaking I felt comfortable and connected with him. Nurse Wendy was remarkable and made me feel comfortable as well. (Even though I hate needles, she helped ease the tension I had.) I look forward to my next visit.
Kind, considerate, and thorough
Well organized friendly competent caring thorough considerate and complete. Went beyond call of duty and with nurse showed epitome of what is desired. Worth the wait!
Excellent visit. Dr. Adams and his associates were courteous, friendly, explained things clearly, and took care of my needs.
He is the best
There was a long time between my appointment time and the time that I was seen. However, being a healthcare professional myself I understand the unexpected challenges so the added wait time did not bother me. Dr. Adams was extremely friendly, personable, and attentive to my needs. He listened to all my concerns and addressed them properly. As a new patient, I felt extremly comfortable with him and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a primary care physician.
Great service. Dr. Adams was very knowledgeable and patient. He was thorough as he reviewed findings. He was also very pleasant and kind. I highly recommend this Dr. and facility.
Excellent doctor! He's very knowledgeable, cares about the patient, listens to patient's concerns, very thorough, and professional!
Dr. Adams is an execellent doctor. He takes his time to hear his patients out. My office visit was shocking that he was the only doctor in the office and he still didn't rush through my appointment.
I enjoy the facility, staff and Dr. Adams, however I don't appreciate the ridiculous wait time. The office may have had 3 other patients in the waiting room including myself. I was told that due to Dr. Adams' style/bedside manner, which I appreciate as he doesn't rush, and being short staffed was the reason for the two hour delay. I've read multiple reviews that noted that same issue so I doubt it's truly based on Dr. Adams and being short staffed.
I like Dr. Adams. During my first annual exam he was very instructive, and professionally approachable. I made a good choice for my Primary Care Physician.
I really liked him. He was personable and professional. Spent more time with me than I expected and asked a lot of questions but more importantly listened to my answers rather than checking boxes on a form.
Dr Adams was very informative in explain my diagnosis and what to expect ftom my medication and recovery time
Dr Adams is very knowledgeable and thorough . He is my favorite doctor ever.
It was worth the wait, DR Adams was awesome he made sure he spoke to me in a manner in which I would understand and most of all he listened to all of my concerns and educated me through out the process.
Dr. Adams was great. He was friendly and professional and answered all of my questions. There was a bit of a wait but that did not surprise me as my appointment was at the end of the day. The staff was excellent too. I would definitely go back and would recommend Dr. Adams!
I waited about 30 min. before i was called in. Then waited about 30-40 min. after I was called in waiting for the doc in small room. Another 20 min. after I talked to the doc. waiting to give blood for blood work. This all waiting time could be improved.
I have been going to Dr. Adams since before my son who is now 2 so its been about 4 years now and he is the best to ever do it.
Dr. Adams cares about his patients and their overall health.
He is always very clear and takes the time to explain everything, and will not make you go through unnecessary testing.
Really nice guy
Great doctor! I had an appointment but had a long wait time about an hour before I saw him.
Doctor was attentive to my concerns. Only downfall was Wait was too long even with appointment
Dr. Adams was knowledgeable and frank and was able to take care of the diagnosis and prescription promptly.
He is so good. Wish I always had him. But I do now!!!
Dr. Adams is one of my favorite doctors. Always impresses me with his listening AND knowledge. Very thorough. Thinks of subsidiary issues to check. Only drawback is that I can't get out of his office in under 2 hours, even with an appointment. Still worth it.
Dr. Adams is extremely friendly, knowledge and always very open to listening and considering all of your concerns.
He is great!!!!!
Excellent visit to the doctor's office
Very good beside manner. Unfortunately his support staff was not as good as him. I arrived at 4:25 and wasn't seen until 6:00.
He is an excellent doctor. He thoroughly goes over with you the problems that you are having and how you can correct them. He takes his time to make you knowledgeable about what you are going to be taking and the problem you are having. He's just awesome. :)
He took the time to listen and also did a wonderful job of explaining every detail to me
Great Dr., long wait.
I always appreciate his listening skills, respect and that he shares statistics with me when I visit regarding how many people have had X illness in the area during the season. He clearly stays connected to his colleagues and patients and monitors the overall health of people in the silver spring MD metro area.
I thought very highly of Dr Adams however my wait time was too long (I had an appt and still waited 45 mins)
I will be visiting him in the near future.
Dr. Adams is wonderful and truly listens to his patients. My only complaint is the constant wait times prior to appointments; however, he is worth the wait.
comfortable with presents and also diagnosis from previous follw u,
Dr. Roscoe Adams is very helpful ,thorough, professional and cares about the patient. He took his time to listen to me and work with me to find out what was wrong. He was willing to consider my concerns and order the appropriate diagnostic tests when other doctor's have refused to.
Dr Adams was amazing and shared a lot of information that was beneficial for me to know. Very friendly and honest.
Dr. Adams was helpful, and he was able to provide me with the service I was looking for. But I only spoke to him for two or three minutes, and that was because I had to ask him to clarify something he said. Then, he seemed a bit annoyed that he had to repeat himself. But, it was very convenient, and I will likely go back in the future.
So wonderful! Truley a pleasure to meet a doctor who spends all the time needed to answer questions and who completes a very thorough physical assessment!
Dr Adams is the best. He's so pwrsonavle and relateable
Got my annual physical done here and Dr. Adams was very nice and explained everything he was doing and looking for. Was very informative and helpful.
definitely will come back
He was very friendly
He was great! Any time I have a question or need to see someone, I'm going straight to him from here on out!
He's a very knowledgeable doctor. Very personal.I went to see him for an annual physical and some blood work since I haven't been to the doctor in several years. I can tell by the way he answered my questions that he knows his stuff. Although he seems to move around a lot from clinic to clinic, the man does his job well. So if you're able to get your schedule to align I would highly recommend him.
They had no respect for me. I have waited for almost two hours to see dr Adams. I will never go back to him again and do not recommend him
Had seen him before at another facility. I researched him to find him again.
Great Doctor. Really delivers the message regardless of the audience. I had nothing but confidence in his ability
Dr. Adams is extremely kind, knowledgeable, very professional, and relays medical information with sensitivity. He reminds me of my childhood family practitioner, who was a friend and trusted caregiver to the entire family.
Dr. Adamas made me feel at ease and seemed very knowledgeable. Quick and straight to the point. Told him my issues and he was able to diagnose and solve. I will definitely be back for future visits.
I arrived early and was taken back in just a few minutes. Dr. Adams showed up right away and was both very knowledgeable and personable. I didn't feel like he was rushing at all and he was very helpful, explaining everything and taking the time to ask about all of my history. Overall, it was a very good experience and I am happy to have found a new primary care physician.
Dr Adams was very helpful. He explained everything to me and really went above and beyond
Excellent doctor! Great manner and expetise!
Dr. Roscoe is very experienced and knowledgeable.
He's so nice! So are the nurses
Dr Adams wasn't in however Dr Britton was, and she was excellent.
I really appreciate all of the information and demonstrations that he gave. He helped me to not feel uneasy and everyone was pleasant from the moment I walked in until I left.
Outstanding! He is now my primary care physician.
Dr. Roscoe Adams is an amazing doctor. I highly recommend patients to go see him.
I had the same doctor for nearly 20 years before now. So, I was concerned about getting someone who would give me the kind of personal attention and educate me in the way my former doctor had. Dr. Adams was definitely all that, and more! Hurray to me for making a great choice!
Dr. Adams listens and takes the time to explain options and/or treatments. He is definitely my new go to!
Quick, efficient, and friendly. He even saw the nurse's notation about an ongoing undiagnosed gastrointestinal issue I've had and asked me questions and made some suggestions around what that might be and followup actions I might take. Would absolutely see again.
I relocated here from Texas so I simply needed refills on my medications. He took the time to know me outside of my medical history. He also took the time to help me find the best place to buy my medications since my medical insurance is not effective yet. Great Dr
Very personable and called to follow up later in the evening! He handled my case in one day from cradle to grave: his assessment, x-rays, and schedules my same day appointment with a sports medicine physician. He is amazing! I hoping he will become my new primary!
He was very helpful and quick to give me a needed referral. He listened to my issues and helped me find solutions. Great visit!
Very nice man. Gave good advice really cared.
My son said he was a friendly doctor.
He is friendly and gives his best advice for your situation. Feel free to ask him questions!
Excellent, friendly, even has HDTV in the exam rooms.
