I am a 50 y/o female. I was referred to Dr. Alam's office by a friend because I needed to have a routine colonoscopy screening done. There's not enough thanks that I can give to Dr. Alam, his office personnel , and the staff at LGMC Southwest. The care that I received was simply phenomenal. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure that I had the best experience possible. You just can't put a price tag on that level of compassion and professionalism.
