      I don't have any complaints about my visit. Dr. Adams answered my questions and asked for my input about the medication decisions. All associates treated me in professional manner. My wait time was minimal to the point that my husband commented about how fast that I was seen.

      My initial visit with *Dr. Adams a year prior was not good. This time he was very nice, but he wasn't the one who did my ultrasound it was two others, one may have been a dr. the other a student. They were also nice, but did not speak to me during the ultrasound, only to each other except to ask if I was comfortable.

      I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Adams has such a wonderful bedside manner. He told me that I did not have a thyroid nodule without discrediting the Radiology Dept who plainly state that I do have a nodule. He smiled. He wasn't rushed. He directed me through the exam clearly and kindly. He was very respectful and personable rather than robotic or authoritarian (my other experience at UK). I wish all my UK doctors had been like him.

      Dr. Adams had seen my labs, which were drawn a week earlier, so he had all the information he needed to make decisions about further care. He explained why it was unnecessary to repeat the Prolia infusion before the fall and it made sense to me. He indicated Ca and D levels were good and there was no need to make changes.

      He was very professional let me explain my side and how I was feeling about things as well as answering my questions and what would be best for me

      -
      It seemed pretty routine. The doctor didn't ask that much or say that much. I can't really remember what the med student asked other than going over my medical history a bit. There is little to go on in terms of recommending this particular provider. I wouldn't recommend against, but I don't have enough experience yet to recommend for, either.

      I was referred to this specialist by the UK Digestive Health Clinic regarding the results of my Dexascan bone scan. The doctor informed me that my results were within normal parameters, and there was no need for additional medication or any further action at this time. While I appreciate the good news, it seems that I could have avoided an office visit and a $50 co pay for the doctor or someone in his office to share this information with a simple phone call. I'm just saying.
