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 also offer conveniences, like same- or next-day appointments that start on time, which may be found in concierge medicine practices.

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 is located in the beautiful facility at the Katy Medical Complex on Kingsland Boulevard.

Several years back, my husband and I were vacationing in Costa Rica when I got sick. We had gone grocery shopping and got back in time for dinner at the resort and I was so hungry. So not thinking, I got a salad which had been on the counter for, who knows, how long. After retiring that evening, I woke up so sick I felt like I could die. At about 3 am, I remembered that I had Dr. Adams… See more

As time moves on and I get older, I have encountered many doctors in my life, and fortunately most of them have been good.

Unfortunately none of my illnesses come on slowly. It's usually immediate and pretty severe. I've had more times I've texted and called Dr. Adams than came in to his office. He's responded at night, weekends and holidays. I really feel bad when I have to contact him outside of office hours, but unfortunately that is the nature of my illnesses. He's always been… See more

Just the other day I was concerned about my Heart Rate so I texted him and he took time to reply.
I chose Dr. Adams when I moved to Katy, Texas looking for a Dr. I had good recommendations because he is my husbands Doctor. He makes you feel at ease and comfortable when you are in his office.

Love my Doc...Rick Adams is one in a million. Like part of my family...like one of my sons who genuinely cares for me.

He is my special brother in Christ. As a minister of the gospel it is… See more
