I saw Dr. Lam today 8/18 for a recurring problem with noise in my right ear, and feeling full-headed at times. I had a serious car accident on 5/10 that affected my neck, head, and ears. Dr. Lam was wonderful; he was patient with me, explained things carefully, and gave me hope that these symptoms would, with time, go away. I felt so much better after my appointment with him. I am encouraged that I can eventually make a full recovery. I would heartily recommend Dr. Lam to anyone. Jayne Champion

Although the wait time can vary, Dr. Lam is worth the wait. He is clearly very smart but humble and caring. And, he spends time to explain things to layman terms. I have referred my friends to him and would refer family if they lived near Boston.

Dr. Lam did very thorough examination and treatment. He is very professional and thorough in explaining all the problems and treatment. I recommend him highly to anyone who need ENT exam.

Dr. Lam did my surgery a couple months ago and it went very well. I sincerely appreciate how he used surgery as a last resort but when it had to happen, the surgery went off without a hitch. I was very nervous but now I am breathing like a normal person again. Dr. Lam you are the best!!
Dr. Lam was my surgeon for sinus surgery. He explained everything in detail upfront. I appreciated that he initially tried medical management before jumping straight to surgery as the other ENT surgeon I saw wanted to do. I am scared of surgery and wanted to try to control with medicines if possible. I am breathing better thanks to Dr. Lam.
like him a lot. kind, smart, and explains things to me and my fam.
dr lam is great. he is smart and helpful. he takes time to explain things. would recommend him highly.

Outstanding! Saw me on time, listened intently to what I had to say, asked questions to get clarification on what I was saying. Very thorough, organized and knowledgeable.Explained things using real life terms and examples that a non-medical person can understand. Explained exam procedures before and while performing them. Made sure I understood his directions for my medications, he wrote them down and handed them to me. Insured that I was set up for my follow up appointments.
