Dr Adams and his staff offer great treatment and a kind, friendly atmosphere.

Yeah, two people that day. One was a nurse doing an EKG, and the other one was Dr. Adams. Qestion my knowledge of my own body trying to tell me what was going on and what wasn't going on. For example, I asked EKG person that was administering the EKG to please use my left arm. And then I said don't squeeze it too hard with the blood pressure monitor cuff and she said, well that doesn't happen if you don't move your arm. Well that's bologna, i've had my arm perfectly still and it felt like they were gonna take my whole arm off. Because some people make that cuff incredibly tight. And then Dr. Adams was smirking and smiling a lot while I was talking even though I have advanced knowledge of medicine. Way advanced compared to the average person, and a bachelors degree and know all of the medical terms. Which I thought was really weird because a lot of doctors have a problem with ego.

The medical professionals were all kind, courteous and knowledgeable. Everyone are always nice. I must commend Mike ,one of the maintenance/engineering department. I had a problem with my car, the engine cover had come loose under the front of the car. Was not driveable the way it was. Already caused a cracked windshield. Mike came out and crawled under partway. He ended up going back to the shop for another tool. He got the part off and put it in the back for me. I thank Mike so much for his awesome help that day. He's an awesome person!!

Regarding my care here at Avera Heart Hospital, I'm very happy with the doctor was very congenial and explained how the heart was working what the blood vessel how the blood to the heart and so forth and and I think he's interested. He come to see me in the morning and then again in the evening, he has the last couple of days, so I'm very happy with Avera Heart Hospital. I think I'll get something done here. Maybe won't be til next week. I know you got a weekend coming up. So I don't know what's going to happen.

March 13, 2019
Everyone is kind and courteous, and Dr. Adams is awesome. Thank you.
March 12, 2019
Yes, whenever you called to remind me of my appointment will you please tell us the time of the appointment? Just giving me the date isn't very helpful. I need you need to verify the time for a person. Thank you.
March 12, 2019
I just wanted to say that Dr. Adams was amazing. He's kind, his bedside manner is very good. I really appreciate the work he's done, and you have a really great doctor. So far so good. Thank you.

My provider spend a very long time with me. He was thorough and made many sound and reasonable recommendations. He is the best cardiologist I have ever seen. I am sooo happy with Dr Adams!!!
February 20, 2019
Just thought the nurse who did my pacemaker check was a little short/snippy when answering some of my questions. The person who did my BP and EKG and Dr. Adams were excellent! Thank you for all you do!
February 20, 2019
I thought the doctor in Bolton response not trying to listen in didn't hurry up at all. And it was very knowledgeable very helpful. It made me feel at ease and I'm so glad I got to see hopefully they'll be able to help me.
February 08, 2019
I have great confidence in all personal that I work with
February 01, 2019
Everything was very well and professionally handled. The appointment was on time and did not have to wait. The nurses were very professional along with desk personal. This was my 4th or 5th appointment and everyone was a good experience.
January 25, 2019
Hey, I want to thank the nurse Denise for her kindest and understanding too, it was good to talk to her and Dr. Adams and thank you for their time.
January 22, 2019
Very pleased with north central Heart!
January 22, 2019
Dr. Adams explained my condition and options in a very understandable way. He listened to what I had to say and responded accordingly. His nurse,Shanda,made sure I had a written copy of what Dr. Adams was recommending and I felt she was very sincere when she I cold contact her any time with questions. Overall my office visit with Dr. Adams left me feeling more in the know about a plan for my heart.
January 15, 2019
Very nice facility and the people were more than polite. I actually felt they truly cared from the second I entered the door. Thank you.
January 10, 2019
Dr. Adams was very helpful
January 03, 2019
Well, okay you hey, I.... we were there in 2014 and we didn't have our second appointment until 2018. So that's 4 years and that I don't think their appointment system is right. Doctor, Dr. Adams was very nice. I think he does a good job. I think he's wonderful, but I think sometimes the way... the the method.... their methods need to be improved, and I would also like to know every time I husband monitor's checked, I would like to have.... either have a call or have a letter or have a note on my key pad on my computer that he was checked, and I want to know the results. Thank you.
December 26, 2018
My only "semi" negative comment would be I really don't care for the way a person registers and checks in.....I also don't have a better solution to offer. But it feels a little impersonal........not because of the way employees treat the patient, but where you walk in, sit, wait, then go to a cubicle, then shuffle into the larger seating area. The rest of my entire experience was warm and fuzzy!! Great people to work with, communicate with, explaining each step of the way. Very one on one with the Doctor and his nurse. Thaks you for taking care of me so well.
December 18, 2018
I feel that I got "standardized" answers to my questions and concerns. It was all consistent with what other doctors have told me. And I was quite impressed with the complete sharing of information and explanations that I was given concerning my questions. However, I think that the Dr. should do some "out of the box" thinking about what can be done. I know that standardized, proven information protects the doctor, but doesn't do me much good. I was told that other "natural" solutions have not been properly tested. Well then, why doesn't the medical profession study and test them? I presume they don't because it would not be as profitable. I believe that the Dr. I saw cared about me and my health as well as the other doctors I have seen do. But I am not convinced that they have explored all other options for health care.
December 17, 2018
Dr. Adams was wonderful. He did a fantastic job with me and I would also like to say that is nurse, Shada was also fantastic. She's been great every time I've called in and extremely responsive on messages and emails when I've sent those. So both of them, Dr. Adams and Shanta have both been great. Thank you.
December 14, 2018
The check in is to long, you to too many places, you check in and they tell you to wait, then you see some one else and they send you to some one else. It's let my time isn't worth anything and your time is very valuable.
December 11, 2018
From the time I arrived to time left, the care and concern given was greatly appreciated.
December 11, 2018
I think the whole Hospital, on it's own, is fantastic. I would not go anywhere else, especially peer, for the care that I need. The staff there at the hospital is friendly, concerning, and very knowledgeable. And I would recommend this place to anybody.
December 06, 2018

Dr Adams knows his business and seems confident in the prescribed treatment he has planned for us. Cannot ask for more than that.
