Dr. Valenzuela

Nolan J. Adams, MD

Dr. Adams grew up splitting time between Rockford, IL, China, and Thailand. He then spent over a decade training in Chicago, starting with his undergraduate at Northwestern University and medical school at the Loyola Stritch School of Medicine. He completed a transitional year internship at the AMITA Resurrection Hospital in Chicago before returning to Loyola for residency training, where he was chief resident in his senior year.

His clinical focus is on advanced cataract surgery, as well as interventions for patients with severe cornea and glaucoma disease. He is motivated by the solutions that emerging technologies offer for patients and the empowerment that comes from helping patients to understand their ocular disease to make the best treatment decisions.

He is looking forward to exploring Albuquerque and the surrounding region with his wife, Jenna, and three young kids. The whole family is excited for warmer weather and the prospect of camping in the mountains!
