Dr Lam is extremely skilled and posssses an excellent knowledge in his specialty, Nephrology. We meet him on an urgent basis while hospitalized and he was very informative and explained the course of treatment and prognosis thoroughly. He made rounds every morning and made himself available to speak to my family if they had any questions or concerns. He is an excellent physician and his bedside manner is professional and warm. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.
