Dr. Kam performed CMC Arthroplasty on my left hand on March 23, 2017. Recovery has been a long process with another 5-9 months before I am 10%. However in just 3 months I am able to use my hand for every task with only minor discomfort. I have to say, no use of your thumb for 6 weeks was no picnic, but well worth it. Dr. Kam did a wonderful job. My advise is...if you need to have this type of surgery, do it now..you won't be disappointed.
We appreciate the kind words about our team. It's our pleasure to help you get back to doing what you love.

My overall experience with Dr Kam was beyond my expectations. I was cautious, however once I realized he was extremely knowledgeable and skilled,the confidence level soared. When in the room with him, I felt I was the only patient he was concerned about. He explained things in detail to my satisfaction and answered my questions intelligently. I found his bedside manner to be exceptional. Even when having to wait longer than I appreciated, I didn't feel he was rushing me or spent any less time.
We are so grateful for the positive feedback! We'll share your kind words with the team to let them know their work is appreciated. Thank you again for sharing.
Not an ounce of warmth from this doctor. Promoted surgery when another doc in same practice said it was unnecessary. Very condescending and I didn't appreciate it.

I have had great treatment from Dr. Kam. I work with my hands and he has done surgery on my right hand that was amazing and I was back to work in about 10 days. He has also treated my left hand for an arthritis attack that put me out of work and I was back to work the following week. He was a little quiet at first like anyone is on the first meeting but soon after became very friendly . I would highly recommend this Dr. To anyone with hand problems. He really knows his business.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're thrilled to hear about the success of your visit with Dr. Kam!
I met with Dr. Kam today and had a great experience. From the moment I walked into the practice everyone was friendly and efficient. Dr. Kam was very attentive during the appointment. He heard my questions and took the time to address them. I found his demeanor to be the perfect balance between professional and friendly. He had a sense of humor which I always find welcoming when dealing with a medical issue. No surgery for me so I cannot speak to his surgical skills.
We're so glad to hear about your positive experience with Dr. Kam. Our goal is to provide the very best patient care available, so it's always encouraging to hear about positive experiences.
Staff was for the most part pleasant and helpful at this practice. Dr. Kam lacks bedside manners. Answered phone call during visit. Excused himself from the room after having a several minute conversation. Was apparent that he didn't plan to come back until I questioned the assistant that he sent in. Treat's you like you know nothing about your injury. Use caution seeing this doctor if your are in urgent need of treatment.
We continually work to improve and provide the best possible care for every patient, and would like to discuss your experience in more detail offline to protect your patient privacy. Please feel free to call (772) 403-2295 during normal business hours so we may work to resolve your concern. We look forward to hearing from you.

In August 2016 I had Thumb CMC Arthroplasty surgery done. I had very limited strength in my right hand before Dr Kam did this surgery . Five months later I am not only pain free but my thumb strength has surpassed the other hand. I am very pleased with the results of this procedure and would very highly recommend Dr Kam to anyone contemplating this procedure.
