My wife's PCP did not help her at all controlling her lipids and blood pressure. We saw Dr. Fairlamb and we couldn't be happier. He took an active interest in treating her. Dr. Fairlamb truly cares for my wife's well being. My wife is a stroke survivor and I believe Dr. Fairlamb has given her a better quality of life. God Bless
