He is a good doctor. I take out one star because I wait for him more than 1 hour before he can see you.

Glen Cove, NY |
Dr Kin Lam is a compassionate, caring oncologist and internist. As a cancer survivor, I was being treated by Dr Lam for the past couple years. He has over 25 years of solid experience in treatment of cancer and his expertise earn him a lot of respect from his colleagues, patients and the asian community. My whole family is also taken care by Dr Lam, and they are so very happy and grateful to him.
