in League City, TX |
Dr Lam was very personable and addressed all my concerns and questions prior to and post surgery. I was therefore comfortable and confident in going into the operating room. He appears to have done good skilled surgery as I am now recovering. I would highly recommend Dr. Lam.
Houston, TX |
Great Bariatric Surgeon. Very nice and office staff friendly and efficient.
Pasadena, TX |
He Listens and is willing to help me, as a patient, to become more healthy. He has a great bedside manner polite and professional. I like a doctor who is willing to take over my surgery because my former doctor would not even speak to me. My former Doctor lets his office handle everything. I like Dr Lam, his office staff was helpful not hindering and They seem to be very able.

Dr.Lam has a wonderful bedside manner, he brakes down the procedure and the process. The office staff are friendly and knowledgeable. If you are contemplating weight loss surgery call him first.
