Francis Adams (1796 – 26 February 1861) was a Scottish medical doctor and translator of Greek medical works.

Adams had a practice in Banchory, Aberdeenshire, from 1819 to 1861; because there were no English translations of the medical tracts of the Greek, Roman, and Arabian doctors, Adams undertook many translations himself, which were widely published.
