Dr. Lama has been treating me for several years. She is excellent in her care, treatment and attention. I would highly recommend her and continue to follow her to Presbyterian Hospital from Northern Medical. Hopefully the office atmosphere at NY Presbyterian will be as accommodating.

After my mothers hospitalization, I was told by the nurse that she would have to send the doctor an email to request an ok to overbook an appointment for my mother. I am sorry but this is unacceptable for someone who has been her patient for years. Needless to say, we will be looking for another physician.

I have been going to Dr. Lama for a number of years now and she has always taken the time to discuss how I am doing. I trust the decisions she makes and confident that she is doing what is best. Both her and her staff are professional and friendly.
