"I really enjoy when patients tell me how much better I made them feel after balancing their hormones, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle. It lets me know that I had a positive impact on their life and gives me fulfillment. I treat a patient's entire body versus focusing on one problem area. I strive to find and fix the cause of the problem rather than just covering up the symptoms. If you are reading this message and you feel like you have hit a wall with your medical care, will you give me a chance to help you? I will do my best to make you feel better. Please call (256) 722-0555 to set up an appointment today." - Chad Gilliam - M.M.S., PA-C

“I've seen many people prescribed antidepressants, attention deficit disorder meds, sleeping pills, and other medications when the real problem was hormone imbalance. My wife was one of those people, but unfortunately she passed away before I learned how to treat hormonal imbalance. I can no longer help her, but I am committed to helping people feel better and look better while addressing the real problems.” – Dr. Gary Adams

“If not for Dr Adams and Chad I would still be just existing. They listen and take how you feel in consideration (your not just numbers on a page from blood work). I have struggled for years to find someone who listens. On top of all that Dave can always find my vein with ease and make me comfortable while having blood drawn. Top notch team!”

“I have to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Jamie Russell. She is the Medical Aesthetician at Madison Family Care and has changed my life. I met Jamie when she was doing the makeup for the models at our Bridal Fair event back in September. It was one of those "meant to be" moments. I was having the worst breakout of my life that week. I was like, I'm 33 why is this still happening!! I was so depressed about it and did not want to be seen in public. I was trying every acne product I could find to help my problem. There was not enough makeup in the world to cover up what was going on with my face. The worst part of all, I was having my engagement pics taken in just 2 days. All I could think was, I don't want to look like this on my wedding day! Jamie over heard me talking about this and said she was an Aesthetician and could help me get my skin ready for my wedding. Boy did she work a miracle on my face. I wish I had taken Before and After pics, because after 3 visits with her my skin has never looked this good. My dark spots have faded, my acne has finally been taken care of and my skin has never looked this healthy. She is a miracle worker. If you suffer from any type of acne problems, have dark/age spots or maybe you just want your face to have a nice healthy glow to it I highly recommend Jamie.”

“I am so glad I found Madison Family Care! I have been feeling bad for years and have been to several doctors and no one had ever been able to find out what was wrong with me until Dr Adams. He seems to genuinely care about his patients overall wellbeing. The nurses and staff are wonderful, and scheduling appointments has been very quick and easy. I will definitely recommend Madison Family Care to all my family and friends!”

“Madison Family Care has changed my life ! I have spent years over weight, fighting see saw diets that don't last. I meet with Dr Adams after my family doctor retired to find out if we would be a good fit. He introduced me to Kena who walked me thru their program. All I can say is results matter. 45 pounds down and still losing weight. Was it easy, not always but what this program taught me was a better way to live where food is not king. Not only have I lost weight, but my arthritis is gone, I have more energy, and love life again. Please, if you are 20 or more pounds overweight, call Kena and set up your appointment and begin the new you today.”

“Dr. Gilliam is fantastic, though he's a Physician's Assistant (P.A.), and not a full doctor. He mixes western medicine with nutritional supplements, lifestyle changes, and alternative treatments, and achieves fantastic results. It seems he wants to help your body heal itself and stay healthy, rather than to just treat symptoms or a specific condition. I like that he explains what the different supplements do, and that he spends a good amount of time with each patient. I knocked off a star for a combination of things: the appointments aren't exact (though they are more prompt than most other places in Huntsville, usually within ~ 20 mins), the staff has been bad at returning calls a few times, and the supplements sold there are 2-4x what they would cost at a vitamin store. I keep going back, take my kids there for second opinions and alternative options, and recommend them to family and friends.” – Andy C.

Chad Gilliam and the nurses have saved my life. Still a work in progress, but I have hope. It's a terrible feeling to know you are sick and every doctor tells you that nothing is wrong. Thank you, Madison Family Care.” – Claire Springer. Source: Facebook“Life changing thyroid protocol happened for me at Madison Family Care! If you are searching for a Dr. who properly treats and understands thyroid disorders go to Madison Family Care!”
