"Part of the Village"
Dr. Maria Adams was first drawn to medicine by a strong interest in biology, and her experiences working in an emergency room during college sealed the deal. She found children to be the “most enjoyable patients” and that caring for them and working with families to optimize a young patient’s health and future to be greatly rewarding. Dr. Adams brings a very personalized approach to her practice; working with patients and patients’ families to investigate and problem solve in order to best address health issues or concerns.
Helping children thrive and watching them grow and develop their own personalities drives this pediatrician who said she, “loves the chance to be a part of a child’s village.” Dr. Adam’s clinical interests include hospitalized children, obesity, and breastfeeding.
Dr. Adams looks forward to becoming part of the community and getting to know her patients and their families. When not caring for patients, Dr. Adam’s other passions include enjoying the outdoors and hiking.
Dr. Adams sees pediatric patients, from birth to 18, in our Warsaw practice. To schedule an appointment, please call, (585) 228-1195
