I spent years going from doctor to doctor and Dr. Lam was the only one that listened and helped me. Every other doctor saw a young person and dismissed me as a head case. Ever since that day I've never left and he's been with me thru all the ups and down of a life with Fibromyalgia. I would not have made it without him. His staff is also helpful and friendly. There's a patient portal that makes it really easy to communicate with them at all times and check your previous visits and med history

Dr. Lam was a big waste of time and money. I would never recommend him. I just moved to the Miami area, and needed to transfer my treatment for fibromyalgia & OA from another rheumatologist. My meds include Tramadol. Within the 5 mins he spent with me (no physical exam either!), Lam told me he doesn't prescribe tramadol. I had waited 6 weeks for the appt. I needed prescriptions, so my General Practitioner wrote my scripts to last me until I could get an appt. with another rheumatologist.

Dr. Lam is wonderful. My daughter referred him to me and every thing wonderful that she said about him is so true times two. He is the most gentle, patient and kindhearted Doctor that I have ever been to. Which is a huge compliment because I have been to several Doctors in my lifetime. I would refer everyone to him. I drive from Naples, Florida to see him because I am so impressed with his care.

Dr. Lam is a caring and kind professional that offer his patients excellent treatment options based on his vast knowledge and experience as a competent physician. He takes his time to listen and has great communication with the patient to find the best treatment available to meet the patient's needs. His treatment for my husband has dramatically improved my husband's quality of life. The office is always clean & pleasant. The staff is very supportive and courteous. They are all very efficient.

Very pleased with the care. The only major complaint is the lack of receiving a return phone call. Sometimes takes two weeks and twice I never received one.
