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.

from Paul in TX March 13, 2024 for J. Rick Adams, MD

I recently read an article about a new cancer test which detected many cancers but was not paid for by Medicare. I called Dr. Adams to see if he knew about it. He knew about had research it, explained it to me and said we would discuss it at my upcoming yearly physical. I am constantly amazed that even though he has a busy practice he returns my texts very promptly. I truly feel that I have… See more

from Robert in TX March 10, 2024 for J. Rick Adams, MD

Over two decades ago, I was in an auto accident. It was a serious accident, and luckily no one was injured. The emergency personnel checked me over, including taking my blood pressure. My reading was sky-high. So much so, that they wanted to take me to the hospital. I declined and decided to seek a primary physician. I went to a local medical center and saw one of their in-house doctors.… See more

from Karen in TX March 10, 2024 for J. Rick Adams, MD

After years of cancer treatment medications my body was worn out. I had back and joint pain, shortness of breath, osteoporosis, and was just out of shape. And because I’d had so many strong medications in the past, I was looking to get off or stay off of as many meds as possible. Dr. Adams listened, understood, and helped me find supplements in addition to eating a healthy diet that have… See more

Sorry I'm a bit late, but my husband, Gene is in home hospice and I've had my hands full lately, as you can imagine. Dr Rick Adams has been my primary care physician for over 20 years and he has also been Gene's PCP for about 10 years now. We are in our 80s and 90s and have had plenty of experience with a lot of good doctors over the years. That fact in itself is a testimony,… See more

from Justin in TX February 12, 2024 for J. Rick Adams, MD

My wife and I have several “unique” issues. Its great to have someone working through the treatment and monitoring the results. The quick answers to our questions is now just expected. It’s easy to get use to such care. We are very happy with Dr Adams and MDVIP.

from Shawn in TX February 11, 2024 for J. Rick Adams, MD

I went to see Dr. Rick Adams after my neighbor recommended him. I had had a CAT scan to detect a bout of diverticulitis, and they found a mass on my liver. It was very scary and a bunch of tests, and thankfully it was just a fatty tumor (not cancer). And in being so upset with the medical system and the way it’s come to be with my primary care physician I was looking for alternatives. My… See more

from LLoyd in TX January 20, 2024 for J. Rick Adams, MD

I have been seeing DR Adams at least over 20 years now. My children also went to see him when they were young. He is the best DR I have ever had, he cares about his patient's overall health. He follows up with you and always there to answer questions. He has great way of talking to his patients and designing specific care for that patient. He has personal experiences in his life that have… See more
