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.

Dr Adams is always there when I need him and with my husband on dialysis, it seems I need him often. Thank you, Dr Adams

from Don in TX March 4, 2018 for J. Rick Adams, MD

I came down with the Flu on Christmas Eve. Texted Dr. Adams my symptons on Christmas Day. He made recommendations on over the counter drugs and got a prescription for Tamaflu within minutes. Caught it early and only had 5 days of fever and coughs. I hated to bother him on Christmas Day but I was in agony.

from Carol in TX March 4, 2018 for J. Rick Adams, MD

Hi Dr. Adams - I just want to thank you and your staff for the kind medical care you give me whenever I need it. You are very good in answering my questions quickly and I am comforted in knowing you are close by. Happy Doctor's Day -
Carol B.

from Douglas in TX March 1, 2018 for J. Rick Adams, MD

Dr. Rick is a 5. I have been with him since the summer of 2007 after suffering a stroke. Over the years working together I am 95 recovered and my A1C is now 5.5 down from the high 6s. He is more than my Doctor but a trusted adviser. I would be lost without him and his nurse Dodi.

from Eugene & Carole in TX March 1, 2018 for J. Rick Adams, MD

Dr. Adams,

Carole and I thank you for you attentiveness and rapid response to our situations.
Your practice is both an emotional comfort and physical solution for both of us.
