Dr. James R Adams's Ratings
It is hard not to like dr. Adams even though I feel he screwed me over after I went to see him to try and reduce my medication. I never said I was healed I just felt that the number of prescription I was getting could maybe be reduced. He prescribed me methadone and after coming home and reading about this medication I told him I would not take it. He never discussed it with me nor did he give me any options. Now that medication is on my record and because of it no matter what pain I am in I can't go to another doctor or hospital due to the humiliation of being connected with a drug with the reputation it has. I was the unfortunate recipient as dr. Adams had just gotten his licence to prescribe it. I read recently that this drug is no longer recommended for pain relief and I think it is because the withdrawal off of it is horrendous. I wish I had kept my mouth shut but I thought we would discuss a new plan of action but he said nothing and handed me the script. I now have no recourse and there are days where I do pray for relief. Dr. Adam had asked me to find another doctor since I didn't agree with his procedure. To date I have no other doctor. On the other hand he was amazing where my dad was concerned and one time when my sister had chest pains he opened his office to check her so she didn't have to wait at the hospital. What doctor does that...
If there ever was a person that was concerned over your wellbeing, was trusting, and someone you have faith in regarding your own health. Dr. Jim has been our doctor for over thirty years. I have complete faith in him. I cannot see ANYONE saying anything negative about him as a person, and doctor. The world is a better place because of this doctor.
I have seen Dr.A for injuries for over 30 years and now will take my athletic kids to him for all of their injuries and check ups. He can sometimes come off as a bit condescending but that is not him, he is simply listeneing and asking questions and wants to get to the root of the issue quickly and efficiently . This is what I appreciate! He also often will give choices of treatment, many times 3 options. He has never let us down. My son was once injured on a weekend, I emailed him thinking Monday morning he would get it and contact me. He responded to my email and even asked if we wanted to meet him at his office on the Sunday!! He is dedicated to his job and his patients and that is truly admirable and we are greatful for him!
One of his staff members emailed me someone else's confidential test requisition forms when I asked for my own to be sent to me. I wasn't impressed. It made me wonder if my requisition went to someone else too. Dr. Adams is a good doctor but the staff in his office are clearly incompetent. Plus the one guy is a rude slob.
Dr. Adams is by far the best GP out there. He is caring and compassionate to not only his patients, but to those less fortunate in Africa. I have had some medical issues over these last 4 years, and I really do not think I would have made it through if I did not have Dr. Adams. While not life threatening, the stress that I was experiencing would always be alleviated after a visit to his doctors office (I live in Edmonton), or through a quickly fired off email. If I ever have any questions or concerns regarding my medication or conditions, Dr. Adams promptly replies if not the same day, then for sure the next. I even received a reply from him on a weekend. Making appointments has never been easier, I can either do it online or by phone. I wish I could afford to donate to his volunteering in Africa, he truly makes a worlds difference. Hands down best Doctor. I wish everyone could receive the care he provides.
I was a patient 15yrs ago& he had no clue with what I was dealing with. I was screaming in pain & for help. My last appointment he said: "Get to know God, become more personable with him, let him take over, he'll fix everything!" A doctor should never say this to a patient. I would not refer anyone to him.
Start to finish: The self check-in computer is great. (simple & quick). Mr. Receptionist, I'm sure Dr. Adams pays you enough to buy some new clothes, stop dressing like a slob. Take some que's from your boss. Dr. Adams is always dressed professionally. Dr. Adams is as good as it gets. Always on time, always joyfully receptive, and never stumped for an intelligent response. Always gives options where possible. Also, Being able to send a doctor an email for prescription refills is not only time saving for me, but for him and his office as well. Only change I could wish for is the availability of a replacement physician for the 6 weeks Dr. Adams spends on missions in Africa. 6 years of awesome results from this physician.
