Dr. Erek Lam is a great physician! Unlike other physicians I've come across, Dr. Lam treats each patient individually and does not take the cookie-cutter approach. He listens and respects my decisions and thoughts and my healthcare treatment, which is what all doctors and nurses should do. Dr. Lam should put on seminars to teach other doctors how to behave and interact with their patients!

Was very caring about my health, and bis doing everything possible to help me.

I appreciate the fact that Dr. Lam reviews my records before seeing me so that we are able to proceed with the visit without starting at the beginning each time. This makes for a more efficient and effective visit plus he is a pleasant doctor.

I was very pleased with my visit on 12/15/17 with Dr Lam and his staff from the time I checked in to when I left. Also, I did recommend Dr Lam to a friend that has the very same condition that I do.
