Thirty years of patient experience with Dr. Lama. I am a tough case for any physician. Dr Lama has always dealt with my problems as if I was family.

Dr. Lama really cares about his patients. He listens and also explains things until you understand. He is very thorough and has a wonderful bedside manner. I would recommend him in a second to anyone needing his expertise.
