Why visit ADAMS?

Patient experience

We strive to provide an excellent experience for our patients from start to finish!

With over a decade of experience and based on direct patient and provider feedback, we have designed our practice to meet the needs, expectations, and desires of our patients and our community.

If you have ever been to a dermatologist’s office, you may have experienced one or more of the following: long wait times, a rushed visit, or many return visits to treat the same condition. While these experiences are common at dermatology offices, it doesn’t mean they have to be the norm and you will never find this style of practice at our office.

Although we exist in a fee-for-service healthcare system, this structure does not guide the ethos of our practice and we hope to become an exemplar for sustainable, effective, and cost-conscious healthcare. We aim to achieve this goal and improve the overall experience for our patients and their referring healthcare providers while continuing to provide the absolute highest quality of care.

Customer service

We answer the phone!

Our friendly front desk coordinators and medical staff are always available during office hours to answer phone calls, emails, and messages. We believe that quick and direct communication and accessibility for patients and between healthcare providers are integral components of quality healthcare. We are a small, local, provider-owned practice and our team prides itself on delivering a superior level of customer service.


We are available now and always will be!

We know how frustrating it can be to wait weeks to months for a dermatology appointment. While less common, there are certain skin conditions that need an urgent evaluation, and we will always work to accommodate patient visits even with short notice for any dermatology concern.
