Dr Adkins is compassionate and great doctor. He has good humor. He gets you in the office when you need it with no delay with same day or next day appointment. He treats me like a human being and he is not afraid to ask more questions so i can get proper medical care and getting the right medicines for the first time. He also makes sure I am not paying a lot for my medicines and he do his best to give me less expensive and generic medications. My blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol are now manageable. I could not asked for more on a doctor. The staff are friendly and couteous. Clean office. Thank You Dr Adkins and staff

I have been going to Dr. Adkins for over 5 years now and the quality of medical care continues to exceed my already high expectation. I can address my issues and he actually understand my medical history. Receptionist and staff are friendly. Clean office. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
