His care, compassion, and steady guidance and experience allowed me the time I needed to make the best decision for my health. He takes his time listening- easy caring manner. He was at my bedside after surgery, and available on cell for questions if needed. My surgery was flawless, and recovery and post follow up as well.

Dr.Alam is the best. He is caring and dedicated. He takes his time with patients and really cares about them. Dr.Alam delivered my son and it was the best experience ever! I would follow him to Mars to keep him as my OB ... He is the real deal and it is clear that he became a doctor for the right reasons and he is truly a rare breed.
