Board-certified gynecologist Kristan Adams, MD, FACOG, comes to Ideal Gynecology, in Atlanta and McDonough, Georgia, with over 20 years of experience in the field of women's health.
Dr. Adams was born in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and first moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University, where she earned an undergraduate degree in both Biology and Sociology. While at Emory, Dr. Adams was a student leader and received several awards including the distinguished Emory University Humanitarian Award. She returned to her home state of South Carolina to attend The Medical University of South Carolina for medical school. She served as class president of her senior year class and was selected to be a member of The Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Following her successful medical school career, Dr. Adams completed her residency in OB/GYN at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.
The year following her residency training, Dr. Adams traveled with her husband and small child to practice on a voluntary basis for a year in both Nepal and Kenya. After returning from her experiences abroad, her early career in OB/GYN started in Philadelphia. However, the south came calling and Dr. Adams returned to Atlanta in 2006 where she has worked in private practice since. After spending many years of late nights in the hospital delivering babies and performing gynecological surgery, Dr. Adams is now ready to spend more time taking care of women in an office setting. She believes that true health and wellness is achieved by an open and trusting relationship. She wants patients to feel comfortable talking about anything and to know that they are being heard.
In her spare time, Dr. Adams enjoys reading, especially historical novels, playing tennis, and skiing. She enjoys an active family life along with her husband Jim Knoer, MD, and three children.
