Lowell, MA |
I was in the care of this Doctor for over a year and watched my health take a nose dive under her care. She didnt listen to me when I told her my symptoms and attributed my issues to rapid weight gain which was one of my symptoms more than 20lbs in 6weeks. Not pregnant, no change in diet and a constant gym goer. She kept ordering blood work and costing me tons of lab fees. Then telling me nothing. I finally changed my doctor and will need surgery for my condition.

Dr Alam is very intelligent and compassionate. Unfortunately, there have been staff problems (lots of turnover) and she generally runs behind schedule, sometimes by quite a bit.

I have been a patient of Dr. Alam for over 10 years and she has been great. Always sent me to have issues looked into when concerned and treated me with respect. Every time I ever had a problem, she investigated until we found the answer and I am grateful for that. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Alam, has been an excellent doctor for me. She is compassionate and truly cares about her patients. Given her experience and a heart for helping others, I drive more than an hour just to receive her services.

Staff was downright rude. Receptionist texting instead of assisting those waiting. Wait was ridiculous. Once in doctor took forever to come into exam room. Not pleased with this practice. Will find better.
in Dracut, MA |
Rude staff and unacceptable wait. I am out of here. Awful.
in Chelmsford, MA |
The wait was almost comical. over an hour and 20 minutes. No apology. Receptionist on facebook the whole time, as I stood up to ask at the desk every 15 minutes could clearly see this. Staff was unfriendly and grumpy. Bad karma in that office. Getting a new doctor FAST.
in Lowell, MA |
Longest waiting I have ever done. Never returns phone calls. Rushed and appears not interested in patient well being. Switched doctors after second visit.
in Chelmsford, MA |
Do No Harm, Hippocrates? Then stay clear of this physician. She has made two drastic negligent mistakes in my care. I am filing charges and changing physicians. AVOID like the plague.
