Sterling Adams, DO
My name is Sterling Adams. I grew up mostly in Salt Lake City, Utah. I then lived in Southern Bolivia for two years, got my bachelors degree in Biology at Brigham Young University and went to Kansas City University for medical school. I am married to a California babe and have a tuxedo cat named Formal. I was attracted to Denver because of the access to many outdoor recreational activities. I love getting outdoors camping, hiking, biking, longboarding, river rafting, kayaking, fishing, rock climbing, etc. and I love to explore. I also love creating art, such as oil painting and I feel like that is a huge stress reliever for me along with meditation and trying to live as much as I can in the present moment. I want to spend my career as a well-rounded physician practicing in a rural community. The connections the HealthONE family medicine residency program has to communities in Colorado and the residencies desire to train well rounded physicians attracted me to this program. In conclusion, my favorite color is green and I love drinking yerba mate.
