Therese E. Adams, MSN, APRN, FNP-C

Certified Family Nurse Practitioner

Mrs. Adams is a proud native of Mundelein, IL and so happy to be serving the community in which she grew up. Mrs. Adams started her nursing career at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, IL. She then received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Chamberlain College of Nursing in Addison, IL. As an RN, she worked in multiple departments within the hospital setting ranging from medical-surgical to orthopedics to oncology. She also served at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, IL for over 7 years before becoming a nurse practitioner. It was there that she found her love of holistic nursing and in turn, holistic health care. She was able to see doctors utilize homeopathy, supplements, and other complementary modalities to aid in the treatment and recovery of multiple patients. Mrs. Adams feels blessed to have joined Dr. Joseph Starkman in his practice. Not only does it allow her to incorporate natural treatments, but encourages her growth and education.

I was recommended here by a family member for my two boys. We see Therese and she is amazing!! So nice and so engaging with my boys. She really takes the time to understand what's going on. I never feel rushed with her. Even when I have questions, Therese and her office staff are so responsive. Even on weekends they are responding to emails! I am so at ease with their medical help and I can feel that they only want the best for my boys' health!!

Covid-19 Information

COVID-19 infection can be a significant concern when you need to visit a medical facility. While there is no way to guarantee you will never contract the virus, here’s some information to put your mind at ease:

  • Our patients wear face masks for appointments when recommended by the CDC.
  • Tele-health appointments are provided to anyone experiencing COVID-like symptoms.
  • Staff members wear face masks and wash their hands frequently.
  • Exam rooms are sanitized after each patient appointment.
  • Our reception area, restrooms and frequently touched surfaces are sanitized daily.
  • Our entire office is thoroughly cleaned regularly by a professional company.
  • With much less traffic, exposure to illness is reduced in our clinic:
    • We see an average of 7 patients per day compared to 30-50 patients per provider, per day in a traditional practice setting.
    • A maximum of two medical personnel are present daily.
    • A maximum of two office staff are present daily.
  • Our practice has a focus on education and prevention, so the majority of our members tend to eat well, exercise, and take high-quality supplements. Therefore, they are not ill as frequently as most Americans.
