04/06/13 5 5 5 5 After losing 100 lbs naturally, and having it off for 4+ years, I was left with loose skin that was not going anywhere, despite trying everything. Believe me, I tried. I had full abdominoplasty (no lipo) in August of 2012. Honestly, this was one of the very best things I could have done for myself. Dr. Adams is polite, kind, and honest. His Office Assistant, Paulette, is simply wonderful. When the bandages were first removed, 3 days after surgery, I turned to my Mom with tears in my eyes because I couldn't believe how beautiful my stomach looked. My scar is now a thin line white line, and my belly button looks completely natural. Beyond thrilled with the results.  Respond

23/05/13 5 5 5 5 I had breast augmentation done a couple years ago, Dr. Adams did a FANTASTIC job! I have a lot more confidence now wearing dresses and bikinis, I was very insecure about my chest always having to wear padded bras and now this doesn't exist. I went from an A cup to 425cc high profile because I have small frame, no one has ever asked me if I had implants as he placed them to look very natural, I am very happy about them. I'm very content, when I call or came in for my appointment, I am always welcomed with positive and caring assistant he has. Paulette is great! Thank you for everything!  Respond

11/04/12 5 5 5 5 If you are looking for a surgeon who is going to bsby you, than mybe Dr. Adams is not for you, but if you want a surgeon who is honest, kind, supportive and does a great job than this is your man. I had a bilateral breast reduction and could not be happpier. Years of debilitating back and neck pain are gone and I have perky, small, even breats with minimal scarring. The surgical staff were very caring and put me at ease and the after care I received was top notch. I like the no nosense approach that Dr. Adams has and would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a brast reduction.  Respond

20/12/11 4 5 5 5 I had left and right auxillary breast tissue removed as well as I also had him reconstruct my right breast after the massacre that was done by another surgeon who had removed benign breast tissue found in a biopsy. I am extremely pleased with the results. Dr. Adams was soooo helpful and understanding. He took the time to explain all the procedures to me and I am very happy with him. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. He also had to build up my left breast (to match the repair to my right) and the results are amazing. He definitely is a surgeon that understands the sensitivities involved. His staff is also very nice.  Respond

23/02/11 2 3 2 3 Not a good doctor for nose surgery, either on a male or female and cannot reconstruct a nose. Yes the receptionist is very loud, no privacy at all , everyone can hear conversation in the waiting room, very embarrasing. No pictures of before and after, maybe only good with other types surgery, not sure, but do homework first!  Respond

17/08/10 5 5 4 5 His services were great, he was very helpful medically, but not as forthcoming with followup information. I would highly reccommend him. A London, ON plastic surgeon that I know said that he "would trust Dr. Adams work with my (his) own family"  Respond

12/06/10 1 2 1 1 Blah! I waited probably close to an hour to see him and he didn't help me at all. I wanted to get scar revision on my face and told him how I've tried a lot of things and went to a lot of different doctors, and he goes "Well, what makes you think I can fix it?" He was like offended that he was the forth doctor I went to. WTF?! He was rude, made me feel uncomfortable and I knew for sure he didn't know what he was talking about anyway. Went to another doctor and everything turned out fine, no thanks to him.  See Responses

28/04/10 4 5 5 5 I had a septorhinoplasty done and today I had the cast removed. Dr. Adams did the most AMAZING nose job,I feel like a beautiful woman now.He has a natural God given gift, he can just look at your face and knows what looks good, every nose is unique to everyone, and I had quite the 'snauzer'.I think he's the best in Canada and in America,he's upfront and honest.I cannot express how happy I am and how unbelievable my nose and my face looks now.My eyes pop out now,before my nose use to be the center feature.I couldn't wear my hair up in pony tails b/c of my nose.You sleep through the entire operation,so you don't feel any pain, and when I woke up,no pain either, it is not a big deal the way people make it out to be.I was told all kinds of horrible stories..and they're not true..there is no pain when removing the gauze, it literally falls out because he lubricates it with vaseline.If you've been thinking about a nose job, do it for yourself. I am so grateful. You're in good hands with him!  Respond

03/10/08 5 5 5 5 I had nose surgery with Dr.Adams in May and I'm happy. My nose looks way better then it did before and to be honest it shouldn't be to prefect either. All my feeling are still here and I did not ended up with pig nose.I did my research before and with other doctor i would hear complaints that all nose jobs look the same like pig noses,or they don't feel nose running. I went for 2 consults with Dr. Adams who explained me the cons and pros which i knew already myself.It also depends on your age and how you skin heals because sometimes the skin shifts while heals.Ten day after surgery I healed and looked great.I didn't need the pain killers the only time i used it it was when i took tubing out the next day and the third day which he warned me that i will have the bad headache.Five weeks after surgery I had my wedding and i looked the way i always wanted, comfortable taking profile pictures. I already recommended him to few people who also had great results.My experience was GREAT!!!  Respond

Two weeks ago he did my breast reduction and I am extremely satified. I am so thankful for what he did.  Respond

25/07/08 2 2 1 4 I originally met for a consultation with Dr Adams and he seemed very knowledgable and helpful with the process of my breast reduction. However after i woke from my surgery my breasts were lopsided!!! my left breast has become mishapen and the right was not downsized the amount agreed upon.

23/04/08 1 2 1 2 I went to Dr Adam's office but did not care for the way I was treated. I was embarrassed as they spoke so loudly that Dr Adams spoke to the assistant and advised her to give me names of references for a breast reduction. The entire waiting room heard our conversation, and the receptionist was very unfriendly. No impressed at all.  Respond

29/03/08 2 5 3 4 Had Tummy Tuck and lipo.Not at all happy with the result- lipo is uneven and belly button looks ridciculous- I just want it fixed so that I can feel good about myself. Don't think I should have to pay again- but suspect that is the case. I like the guy but I honestly don't think he is very good. Had complications after surgery and the nurses that visited me at home all rolled their eyes when i told them who did the surgery- that is pretty telling. I really wish I had done my homework. And...I really wish he would just fix things for me.  Respond

15/05/07 5 5 5 had tummy tuck & breast implants in Dec.05. 1 week later had another surgery to put in drain tub. since then I have had 6 more surgeries to correct my implants. I had to go the whole summer with only one in . First went under the muscle, now they are above the muscles. Not happy with tummy tuck, scare in the wrong spot, too high ,it is placed at the belly buttom, if I want it lowered I will have to go for my 8 surgery in 2 years. Dr. Adams has allways been very good to me and has made sure that I have had very good care post-op at no expence to me. I have not paid anything more out of pocket. I have paid with my time and my self esteme , this was suppost to inhance my look , now I'm not to sure it did.

20/04/07 4 4 4 Howard Adams had a nice personality and explained the procedures well. However, I was not satisfied with either the breast reduction or the eyelid lift. The reduction was done by Adams and Snowdon. I was informed of Snowdon's imvolvement after the surgery. The right nipple was not centered properly to match the left. With the eyelid surgery done by Adams the left eyelashes turn downward now.  Respond

14/02/07 3 4 4 I Had Breast Augmentation in 2005 and had done my homework and shopped around. In this day and age you need to know for yourself what you are getting into. Dr Adams was professional and curteous, I also found he had a good bedside manner. He was honest about expectations and informative when I asked questions. I had excellent results, better than I anticipated and would recommend Dr. Adams to anyone looking into Breast Augmentation.
