About Me

Primary care also known as family medicine, helps people of all ages stay on top of their health and watch for changes. Because of this, family medicine often serves as the frontline defense for both preventing and discovering disease.

Partner with family medicine physician David Adams, MD, at Hegg Medical Clinic Avera in Rock Valley, IA, for expertise and services in caring for your health throughout your lifetime.

“People come to me because they’re looking for help,” said Dr. Adams. “Sometimes the answers are hard to find, but I’m motivated by the unique chance to make a difference.”

Expert Care in Family medicine

Schedule an appointment with Dr. Adams for services including:

  • Immunizations

In addition to family medicine, Dr. Adams looks forward to contributing his talents in the Emergency Department at Hegg Medical Clinic Avera.

Active Lifestyle
