Dr. Alam has a policy of never talking to patients on the phone or by email. Even if you have a simple question, you have to drive over and pay for an office visit to get an answer. Or you can send her a message by regular mail. It's ridiculous.

When a doctor projects arrogance and you feel uncomfortable, that's a key sign of trouble to come. BEWARE: THIS DOCTOR IS ARROGANT!!!
