i went to him with i first got pregnant, i had a medical card, after a few visits i realized his not the doctor for me, when i went to his office and spoke with his staff asking for my medical records and saying i was switching doctors (i was very polite and professional when doing so keep in mind) and the office women snapped and said "Your medical card will not cover extra ultrasound pictures, so going to a new baby doctor is not going to get you your extra pictures" I snapped back saying "thats not why i am switching doctors, im switching because daren adams can not do c-sections only natural births, so if i need a c-section for anyreason im going to have some strange doctor who i have never met before, who knows nothing about me, cut'n on my stomache, because daren adams is not qualified medically to do so" I felt like I was being treated "less than" because i had a medical card. That lady secretary in his office was just rude and heartless. I don't know if she still works there, but no pregnant woman should have to go through that. I remember that rude lady in the office always talked about how she like ham salad from BGs store, i don't remember her name, but if you are her and ever read this screw you, you heartless beastly looking woman! as for everyone else take it as a heads up before you go there, if you ever decide on a different doctor after going there, they will disrespectfully let you go, like they did me. Go to Adena in Chillicothe, I live here in portsmouth, and went there. They have 5 baby doctors in one office, so no long waiting, they can all do emergency c-section surgery, and are super nice, respectful, and informative of any questions you might have! Dr. Villireal is the best, Dr. Moore and Dr. Caldwell are awesome to! And you do a visit with every doctor at least one or more times, so that way incase your choice doctor can not make it when you deliver, another doctor you are already familiar with can take the place of your choice doctor. A lot better than daren adams to where god knows who might end up performing a c-section on you.

wow..i had a complete placenta previa, and hemmorhaged,ended up on total bedrest, saw several columbus specialists, and every doctor here at least once, finally after my fifth bleed was sent to osu medical center and delivered at 29 weeks my three pound baby, where i lost five litres of blood on the table and stayed separate from my baby while i was in ICU, and so u can magine i saw a LOT of practitioners...and my all-ime favorite doctor was doctor Adams,lol...i think he is extrememly bright and CONSERVATIVE, which was very important to me as i did not want anyone to put me or my baby boy in a potentially dangerous situation, and i liked that he educated me about everything that i was facing, what could happen, etc, instead of treating me like a moron,lol...i felt "safe" with him...i hope you have found the right physician for you, it is important

"wondering" where did you get your info on dr adams? C-sections? He did mine and I had no problems at all. The office staff have always been kind to me and I have a medical card too. There probably is more to your story/lies.

I had doctor Adams one time, He used alot of profanity as he was seeing me. Didnt think that was very professional at all! Not only the cussing thing but he did not at all fix the issue that I was having and it took another doctor to do so. The rude lady in his office was most likely his wife that works with him. She is VERY rude and thinks she is worth azillion bucks. Now I know he can do csections. Believe me that kinda doctor loves doing them cause they are more moolah if u get my drift. Dr Adams is a sly talker" thats all he is! My friend had him and he done her csection. After the birth of her baby she said she'd never go back to him again. My mother and mother inlaw has both tryed him out, they didnt like him eather. Not being gross but during my mother inlaws Hysterectomy he scraped her and caused lots of extra bleeding, yeah she could of bleed to death... He is just rough and not caring. My Choice of OBGYN is Dr Arnett. She is fabulous and really knows her stuff. She is also a life saver. Must I mention, I do believe she had delievered Dr Adams Baby! Dr Arnett is very caring and you can tell she just loves her job and that means alot! Ive had her for my pregnacy, she had done my csection and she done FABULOUS!! I also know many ppl that has her and I dont hear any complaints. She sure doesnt treat anyone different because of income brackets or weather they have medical card. With my future pregnacies I would not change Arnett for any other doctor! And Im very very Picky and I just think the world of her. She also has a love for her job and babies! I know Arnett is the best Choice!
Love Adams

With every doctor you will hear horror stories, I am just in shock about these stories!!! I got pregnant unexpectedy, as an older woman I made a decision to seek care from a female doc (my aunt is a nurse and desires for females to get the business)...went to this first appointment just to make sure everything was okay and Doc Adams was amazing, so much so I stayed with him and his office. His wife does work there and she can be abrasive but I like her and she has always been great with me (and I have a medical card). This doctor was like no other, he got on the phone with me as I had some medical issues and was there for me emotionally. He was prepared to deliver C section as my baby was HUGE, but everything went fine so natural. He done my tubal and again...just fine. My teenage daughter who has had trauma also loves this doc and she had refused to get check by gyn. As for Adena...there are horror stories everywhere and I wont share someone elses personal loss but...I wouldnt go to any other doctor EVER!!! Never heard a bad word out of his mouth in fact he encouraged me to have faith in God when I was in distress.(I never comment on here but I am pationate about this doc n staff)

He has been my doctor since 2006 and he also performed my c-section so im not sure where you got that info that he doesn't do them. I love his staff, he is very easy to talk to and has answered any and all questions/concerns that we had without hesitation. I love his office staff and the environment. I recommend him to everyone that I know.

i know of 2 people that had him with pregnacy and he was wrong on the sex both times so maybe he should consider doing more ultrasounds haha

i LOVE doctor adams. he did 2 of my c-sections and just scheduled my next one last week. you must be talking about another ob-gyn, because doctor darren adams did an AWESOME job on my c-sections and his staff is beyond friendly.

by the way, it is not his fault that government medical cards will only allow him so many ultra sounds during a pregnancy...we all want those super cute pics, but i'd rather have a great doctor for me and my baby than a picture.
i have a great doctor

you do know the reason doctor adams can't deliver his own child is because its a conflict of interest, right? REALLY glad i do not take medical advice from no name strangers over topix. dr. adams delivered me 2 beautiful babies and is about to deliver my third. his wife and the other women were BEYOND friendly and always remembered my name and my situation. PS-they did all this knowing i have a medical card, my husbands just a janitor...so i think it is BS people are saying they are snobs about money.:)

He did my csection too. ALL OB's must have extensive training and experience performing csections before getting an OB license.

first of all i was saying dr arnett delivered his baby not meaning as if he couldnt" I am just saying him being in the medical field knew Doctor Arnett was a good doctor! I was actually talking about arnett not saying he was not able to deliver there kid. Im just saying I dont like doctor Adams and several ppl that I know thats had him didnt like him either. Opinions are like a$$holes, everyones got one so no used to go all crazy. I just stated why I switched doctors! And sure if you like a doctor that uses profanity like an off the street thug then sure go to him and enjoy the roughness =]

I have had 2 family members go with Adams and they won't go back. One lost her baby and its amazing the records of her pregnancy when sent over to her new doctor had a lot of false information in it. When she delivered this precious one the doctor she went to knew her history and done the right test and she had a precious boy this time. But the other family member would call and they treated her like crap because of her insurance. Yes, she was treated badly because of the medical card. And he is nicer to the older ladies but us younger ones not so much.

Adams is an amazing doctor!!! He's so laid back and always made me feel comfortable.
There was a few nurses I didn't care for but in the end it was well worth it. He was so good to me during my whole pregnancy, even trusted me with his money to pick his wife up a game system when my husband was working at Gamestop!
I would recommend him to EVERYONE!
i have a great doctor

didn't you just use profanity? who cares if he does. that's a really childish thing to carry on about while you yourself are making the argument that he uses profanity, YOU use a profanity. i am just beyond amused by how babyfied people are. if you don't like him, fine move on. but those of us who have had wonderful experiences with him are happy and are not going any where. so i am just saying myself and several people i know think he is a blessing!(he also has a sense of humor, and from the sounds of it thats humor is NEW to some people)
figured it out

Reading these weird arguments against Dr. Adams, I think I have figured out the problem. The original complaint was made that he will not preform c-sections, we have all figured out that is a lie. I think these women are mad because they HAD c-sections and wanted more pain meds, Dr. Adams stands strong against pain pill abuse and these women went doctor shopping. I've been in the ER before and seen these women fishing for more pain meds to take, sell, or whatever...just saying.
Are you serious

Screw you, you heartless beastly looking woman? Wow you're a bitch and a half. People mature as you shouldnt be allowed to care for a dog, let alone a child. The way you handle things is to get on here and rip his office up and down? I've never been there nor do I know him, but this is not how you handle things. Especially when you're a mother!! Grow up! In addition, do you really think it's smart to bring a child into this world when you're on a medical card? You're obviously broke. Poor child.

I went to Dr. Darren Adams back in July of 09 and I was pregnant. He did a blood test to confirm itand then at 5 weeks pregnant I started to bleed, scared me to death cause this was my first and me and my husband had been trying for a while for a baby. I went to him and he checked me and then sent me for blood work. They did an HCG Quant test to see what my levels were. On Friday they were an 11 and by Monday they were a 2. I called his office to ask them what this was all about, I talked to a nurse don't remember her name, but she said "well, your not pregnant," so I asked "how do you go from being pregnant to not I know miscarriages happen but I want to get to the bottom of it." She said "well, did we tell you you were pregnant" and I said "yea with a blood test." So I said "well, can I talk to Dr. Adams or does he want to see me to figure this out?" And she said "well let me ask him" and she came back to phone and said, "He said to just call us when you need us he doesn't need to see you, now" and I said "What r u serious." And she said "yes he said whenever you get pregnant again just call us." So I told my husband what she said to me and he called their office demanding to talk to Dr. Adams and they would not let him. So he cussed out everyone that came on the phone, and said "you will not go back to him." And I said "well hell no. "

So, now I have a baby boy who is 1. I go to Dr. Jennifer Roberts she did csection on me and would not change for anything. She is so caring and nice. She actually hugged me after I had my son. But I have family and friends that go to Dr. Adams and he did fine with him. But I will never go back.

what kind of man cusses out women when he is mad at a male doctor? they didn't smack you or do you bodily harm. we live in a world where this kind of trash is acceptable.
