CARROLLTON, Mo. – Carroll County Memorial Hospital will begin offering a Dermatology Outpatient Specialty Clinic in Carrollton starting Friday, July 10.
CCMH welcomes Dr. John R. Adams from Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, PA, to our roster of outpatient specialty providers. He will see patients in Carrollton on the second and fourth Fridays of the month.
“We have been working with Dr. Adams for several months to make this service a possibility here at CCMH,” Tim Braun, CCMH Chief Operating Officer, said. “We are excited about the potential of this clinic and being able to offer yet another unique service to the communities we serve.”
Dr. Adams is a board-certified dermatologist. In 2016, Dr. Adams was recognized for his significant contribution to the specialty of dermatology and his dedication to patient care and is a recipient of the 2017 American Academy of Dermatology’s Presidential Citation Award. Since 2003, he has also been selected as one of “America’s Top Physicians.”
He served in the United States Army and was stationed in South Korea and Fort Carson, Colorado. After receiving an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army, he attended the College of San Mateo, where he graduated with high honors and was nominated to Permanent Membership of Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society. He received his medical degree from the University of Southern California. He has been practicing at Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, PA since 1998.
Dr. Adams specializes in Mohs surgery, which is a precise surgical technique where thin layers of cancer-containing skin are progressively removed and examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. He has performed well over 15,000 Mohs cases, which is the treatment of choice for skin cancers on the head, neck, hands and feet.
Dr. Adams, his wife, and two children moved to Kansas in 1996. When not in the office, Dr. Adams enjoys sporting events, ranching, history, movies, and going for long drives on country roads with his wife and dogs.
