I had ACDF surgery with Dr. Lamb. The experience was excellent from start to finish. I greatly appreciated Dr. Lamb's Knowledge and experience. His bedside manner is excellent also. The staff at Princeton medical center all commented on how much they enjoy working with him.
in Plainsboro, NJ |
Dr. Lamb is amazing and was honest and up front about my back issue. He didn't jump into surgery, but tried other avenues first. When I couldn't walk anymore without severe pain and discomfort, I decided to have surgery! The BEST decision I have made! 9 months post I am more active than I was 1 year ago. No pain, or dispcomfort. Getting stronger everyday! His PA Greg is just as awesome! Dr.Lamb's office staff from his nurse Vicki to the X-ray technician, to the front office are great!
East Brunswick, NJ |
I found Dr. Lamb to be troubling. While he will answer questions, he does so grudgingly. If he doesn’t like the line of questions he will leave you by walking out of the room. Is this a Dr. you want operating on you? If he will leave because of questions what will he do after he has operated on you? Find another Doctor!!
in Princeton Junction, NJ |
I highly recommend this practice and Dr. David Lamb and his PA Greg. They are very caring and helpful. They made me feel at ease.

in Hillsborough, NJ |
The Best!
in Titusville, NJ |
Dr. Lamb is very personable and knowledgable. He also has a great reputation in the Princeton area. He met with me several times before we decided surgery was the best option. He did not pressure me at all and took all the time necessary to talk through my options for treating my herniated disc. After the surgery I was very happy with the results. I walked out of the hospital hours after the surgery and have been improving dramatically ever since.
in Hightstown NJ |
I encountered a very serious spinal injury and came to the care of Dr. Lamb. Although he first was introduced to my problem on a Friday he advised me of the situation and needed surgery as soon as possible. Although his schedule was full that day and he was not scheduled that weekend, he got his surgical team together and performed my surgery Saturday morning. His bedside attitude is one of calm and reassuredness. I am in recovery and highly recommend his services.
in Flemington nj |
Dr lamb was so careful and thorough He called me the night before surgery after further studying the scans to go over his plans with the surgery. I have the utmost confidence in his work and the caring he has for his patients. I could not have had better care and results. He is the best

Great with patients and putting at ease. Office staff is responsive. And downright nice.
in South Brunswick, NJ |
Extremely satisfied! I've been very touched by the professionalism, expertise and the social dimension of Dr Lamb, Dr Leiter and his staff. I had my back problem for 3 years. I consulted many doctors but none of them was able to explain to me in detail the steps of my surgery especially my Stenosis which I had major concerns about it. Dr Lamd took the time during two sessions to explain to me the medical procedure in detail about how he'll address the Stenosis.
in Hamilton, NJ |
Would highly recommend. First class experience throughout the entire process.
