Meet
Dr Felicity Adams

Ever since I was a young girl I wanted to become a doctor and with hard work I achieved the opportunity to study medicine at the University of Queensland. With this same dedication, I graduated to become a doctor, and I quickly set about furthering my skills to become a general surgeon and undertaking extra training in breast and endocrine surgery. It was part of my training that brought me to Noosa Private Hospital. Although I was born and bred in Brisbane, I have been holidaying all of my life with my family on the Sunshine Coast. It was this time, together with the time I spent at the working at Noosa early in my surgical training that I realised this is where I would like to make my future home.

I have always been drawn to helping others and find the technical aspects of the precision of surgery both challenging and rewarding. With the skills I have learnt through my training, I am able to combine my passion and training in surgery to helping people.

I understand that your visit to my rooms can be very stressful, but I will work hard to make you to feel comfortable with your experience. I will listen to you and discuss your case on an individual basis, so together we can formulate a plan with your best outcome in mind. Although I am a surgeon; surgery may not be the best option for you. Together we can discuss the best therapies to best manage your case.
