It took forever to schedule an appointment. Her office canceled the original appointment and booked me out again. When I finally went to see her she was rushed, didn’t explain anything well and made me feel like I was wasting her time when in fact she completely wasted my time. I now need to find someone else to help me.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lamb's for several years. She provides me with excellent care and always takes time to talk with me and answer any questions that I might have. I would (and have) highly recommend her to family and friends.

I recently made the decision to switch to another doctor after having continued poor and exceedingly frustrating experiences with Dr. Lamb. She hurries through appointments and doesn't seem invested in my care- often not fully explaining why she decided to put me on or not put me on a specific medication and doesn't fully answer and respond to questions I have. Her communication is also very poor, taking a long time to respond to messages. However, her staff are great and are invested in care.
