10/12/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Adair has been our family physician for 8 years and is fabulous. Intelligent, kind and not too quick to prescribe drugs but very thorough. We moved over town 4 years ago and we still make the 45 minute drive to see him when we need medical care. When we first moved we tried several different doctors, but none were in the same league as Dr. Adair. Already worrying what we will do should he retire....  Respond

28/08/09 5 4 5 5 Dr. Adair is a skilled and caring physician who's primary interest are his patient's health and well being. You may have a wait a little for your scheduled appointment but just know that he takes the time required to deal with every patients questions and concerns. If that means being a few minutes late don't sweat it as you'll get the time you need when your appointment comes around as well!  Respond

23/03/09 5 5 5 5 I wholeheartedly agree with everything that has been said about Dr. Adair. We were fortunate to have found Dr. Adair after our long-time family doctor retired as many were not accepting new patients. Dr. Adair is a warm, caring and compassionate physician who always takes the time to listen and treats you like a person and not a statistic. He is extremely knowledgable and his common sense approach to matters instills a lot of trust and comfort. Dr. Adair is the best!!  Respond

20/04/07 5 5 5 This is a conscientious man who, pardon the pun, is patient with his patients. He thinks about what he is being told and evaluates the new information against one's history...he also cares about the budgets of his older patients and recommends the best solution he can within one's ability to pay. I have had a difficult digestive problem to handle yet, for five-plus years, he has kept me 'healthy as a horse.' A good man.  Respond

07/04/07 5 5 5 Able to get an immediate appointment most of the time and the staff is very oblidging. Very little waiting time and always willing to try new treatment. Over the years has made house calls for serious problems. Does not hesitate to send patients to specialist but in most cases has proven to be better then the specialists. The only downside - - the office does not serve lunch.  Respond
