What People Say About Dr. Alexander Lam, MD

Dr Lam saw me in the ER, with various seemingly simultaneous unrelated debilitating issues. He gave a preliminary diagnosis (to be confirmed later by a another doctor I was referred to), even though I was not especially open to believing the diagnosis. Not only was he right, and thus helped me get great treatment that radically improved my health, but he also relayed the information in an open, non judgmental, friendly, & compassionate manner. I could not recommend him enough

We are amazed that Dr. Lam discontinued use of antibiotics prescribed earlier by three physicians. Dr. Lam maintained and suspected (correctly) that the patient’s problem lay in overprescribing medications. After evaluating the patient through numerous X-rays and tests, he concluded that the patient simply had too many antibiotics. He spent time with the patient and convinced her that in two days she would feel much better. Indeed, she is feeling almost perfect.
