How was your experience with the doctor?Visited Dr. Adams as my PCP to assess a knee issue that I had and/or to receive a referral for an expert. He mentioned there was nothing I could do, but suggested I get an x-ray regardless. He never provided the results of the x-ray after multiple proactive calls to his office. Months later found out I had a partially torn meniscus. This was the second time that Dr. Adams repeatedly ignored my calls to his office. Would not recommend this doctor as a PCP.

How was your experience with the doctor?The office is beautiful. The nurse was extremely friendly. The only problem with the whole visit was waiting for over an hour in the room before the doctor came in! Once he made it he was great. Super friendly and talkative. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a PCP in the city!

How was your experience with the doctor?I called the office prior to coming in to tell them that I am coming in for bad back pain and asked if the dr is running on schedule because I really could not sit in an uncomfortable chair for an hour waiting. They told me he's running on time, he'll be able to see you when you get here. I went. They put me in a waiting room that was about 85 degrees and left me sitting there for over 45 minutes. Then when I walked out and complained the nurse said "nobody told me you had to see the doctor"- which was strange because it was almost 1pm and my appointment was for noon. I work right down the block so I usually do call to see if the dr is running on time before I go in. They always say he is and then leave me waiting in a room for 54 minutes up to 1.5 hours. They should work on their system. I do love the dr though! But their communication sucks.

How was your experience with the doctor?I really want to like this place but throughout my time using them as a primary care doctor, I've been forgotten about in the examination room, I've had appointments cancelled, I've waited between 30-60 mins almost every time I've gone there. If only they could get their scheduling and time management together, I'd go back but I'm going to find someone else after repeated offenses.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a great visit with Dr. Adams at NYDG. The office is simply stunning, and everyone there from the reception desk to Dr. Adams assistants were kind and welcoming. I could tell that it was a busy day in the office, but Dr. Adams still took ample time to meet with me and help me with my diagnosis. Dr. Adams and his team were extremely thorough in following up in regards to my test results and getting me the correct medication. I'd highly recommend Dr. Adams and NYDG to anyone seeking treatment for general medical issues as well as anything related to dermatology.

How was your experience with the doctor?He immediately told me I needed to take a medicine without checking my blood work first. A lot of assumptions with little to no longer discussion of my medical history/lifestyle. Didn’t like.

How was your experience with the doctor?Finally found my PCP. He intently listened to all my concerns, addressed all with care and compassion. Nurses were kind and helpful. Only downside was the wait time- a half hour to be seen by the nurse and another 15 minutes in between nurse and doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Adams is the first PCP in NYC I’ve been to that actually cares. I appreciated his thorough approach which didn’t feel rushed (especially compared to other doctors I’ve been to). He even took the time to call and follow up with me a couple of days after my appointment. Happy I finally found a PCP that provides true primary care.

How was your experience with the doctor?I went for an annual physical. The first thing I noticed was the offices are unusually attractive and modern. He has an A+++ bedside manner and seemed very thorough. I feel lucky to have found a good internist, especially since I found him off ZocDoc, which seems like a random way to pick a doctor to me. I believe all his positive reviews are accurate which is why I went with Dr. Adams.

How was your experience with the doctor?Came to Dr. Adams for a cough that hasn't left for nearly 2 months. He thoroughly explained my illness and sent me out for further testing the same day. The staff in the office are also really nice and thoughtful. The office looks like a set from Black Mirror but that's honestly a compliment! I think I've found my new primary physician. Only note is that his office is actually on the 2nd floor, not the 4th per the Zocdoc email.

How was your experience with the doctor?Lots to like about Dr. Adams and his practice! The new 2nd floor offices are immaculate, and the staff is very polite and well-trained. His offices are located within the New York Dermatology Group, which is expanding their practice to be more of a full-body health and wellness center (with two Internists/PCPs and a Gynecologist in addition to Dermatologists, Etheticians, etc). Though Dr. Adams was running behind (and I arrived 20 minutes early, making my total wait about 40 minutes), he was very quick and decisive when we got into the room. Diagnosed my issue immediately and treated it, reviewed other concerns I had, renewed a script, and talked me through a follow up appointment. All in abut 20 minutes. He definitely has a lot of experience and is very knowledgeable. I look forward to seeing him again.
