Featured cardiologist

Allison Adams, DVM, DACVIM

Dr. Adams received her DVM from the University of Tennessee in 2004. She completed a rotating internship in 2005 at the University of Pennsylvania and her cardiology residency in 2008 at North Carolina State University. She began her career in a private specialty practice in Charleston, South Carolina, where she enjoyed life on the beach with a fishing pole in hand. But 2 years of sand, salt, and the occasional flounder couldn’t hold Dr. Adams back from her professional pursuits, and she headed west. It wasn’t only the cooler temperatures and low humidity of Colorado that excited Dr. Adams. The real draw was joining the cardiology department at Colorado State University and then, in 2010, joining IDEXX as the manager of cardiology for IDEXX Telemedicine Consultants. She now spends her professional time advancing the IDEXX cardiology business and her free time hiking, skiing, cooking, fishing, and spending time with her toy poodle, Junior.
