Dr Lam is wonderful! He performed my neck surgery last July and I've been healing very well. I was extremely nervous about having neck surgery and dealt with the severe pain for over 10 years. I've already had 3 low back surgeries but hesitated when it came to my neck. Dr Lam had such away of putting meat ease. It's not often you find ask surgeon so caring and with a wonderful bedside manner. Hooefully I will not need him again, but if I do, I would use him again! I highly recommend Dr. Lam
