J. Rick Adams, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal as your private physician is to partner with you on a personalized plan for your total health: physical, mental, and spiritual. My expertise as a board certified internal medicine doctor is to diagnose and care for complicated illnesses and provide the medications needed to treat those illnesses. My passion is to find the risk factors for illnesses and help you prevent them before you need medicines and more serious care. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I can provide each patient the time, resources, and personalized care needed to achieve their individualized health goals.

I have been practicing in my home town of Katy, Texas for more than 15 years. The local hospitals, Memorial Hermann Katy and Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation Hospital of Katy, are excellent facilities in which I continue to see my patients every day. My MDVIP-affiliated practice, which is similar to a concierge medicine practice, is located in the beautiful facility at the Katy Medical Complex on Kingsland Boulevard.
