RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I became a patient of Dr Lamb's because I had little choice: she was one of the few doctors in the region with experience treating my rare condition, especially when using the more advanced and less invasive options. But even if I had the choice from dozens of doctors, I would still have been glad to work with Dr. Lamb. During the year of my treatment and six years of monitoring, she has been a caring and expert physician, adviser, and collaborator. I could not recommend her more highly.

I was thrilled that I obtained an appointment with a Pulmonologist 4 days after I called the Lahey Clinic. When I met Dr. Lamb I was ecstatic. She is a very pleasant and proficient physician. I have total confidence that she can help me with my problem. I am so grateful to the Lahey Clinic for scheduling me with Dr. Lamb! I have been a patient at the Lahey Clinic in the past as I had thyroid issues. I treated at the Boston facility in the 1960s and also had excellent physicians and care then!
