About the Author:
Dr. Adam D. Wells, a pulmonologist with Pulmonary Medicine Specialists at Methodist Physicians Clinic Westroads Office Park believes in the power of getting to know each of his patients on a personal level.
He was drawn to medicine at an early age. He was inspired by his father, a physician assistant in St. Paul, Nebraska.
“I kind of fell in love with the idea of taking care of patients over a long period of time, and having the relationships that he had with them was kind of a cool thing.”
He received his medical degree from the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) before completing an internal medicine residency there. He was also internal medicine chief resident at UNMC/Omaha VA Medical Center and completed a pulmonary/critical care medicine fellowship at UNMC.
He was previously a pulmonologist and assistant professor at the Creighton University School of Medicine.
When it comes to The Meaning of Care, Dr. Wells believes it goes deeper than medicine: “The most important thing in terms of treating a patient is remembering that they’re a person – remembering there’s more to them than their disease.”
In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, collecting vinyl records, traveling and cheering for the Oakland Raiders and Husker football and basketball teams.
