Alam is my favorite doctor, hands down. He is extremely caring, he spends generous amounts of time with his patients and will fully explain treatment options. This man literally saved my life. He is brilliant, compassionate and a gift to medicine.

So knowledgeable and caring about my frequent lower leg squamous cell skin cancers. Concerned about Mohs surgery being pain free and trying several procedures to eliminate sun damaged cells so they don`t become skin cancer. Sometimes have to wait but so worth it.

Very professional, talked to me before and after surgery so I could make informed decisions. Great follow-ups. Scar in minimal.
