If you want good health care and timely responses to your concerns, I do not recommend this doctor. I have left three messages and absolutely no response. Jonathon is the medical assistant. Dr Lam might consider looking for a new nurse that will return patients messages.

This is the first GI doctor I have found who actually took time to listen to my long and somewhat convoluted health story and who answered my questions patiently and without a sense of being rushed. Because he spent time with me and reviewed my history carefully, he was able to unravel and explain what might be going on with me and how various GI conditions develop. He's also pleasant and professional and reassuring, and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Lam has treated my husband for a few years. He is an awesome doctor! He is professional, and answered all of our questions, gave us great recommendations, most of all he gave us hope! Previous doctors has misdiagnosed my husband, and we didn't have hope of recovery. Thank you Dr. Lam! Everyone I talk to says you're the best, and we totally agree!!!

Mr. experience with Dr. Lam and his staff was very positive. He is very professional in his approach and precise in his dealings with patients. I was also very impressed with the staff at the St. Helena Hospital outpatient department. Everyone was remarkably personable, despite the very busy pace of the department. Colonoscopies are never fun, but the combination of Dr. Lam's obvious abilities and the positive and courteous attitude of his associates made for a positive experience.
