What People Say About Dr. Po Lam, MD

Dr. Lam was great in terms of friendliness and approachability and in terms of intelligence and skill with surgery. My operation was a pretty simple one but he did it with as much care as a more complicated case. Don't return to physical activity too early like I did. I caused myself some pain and swelling but it was entirely my own fault.

Dr. Po Lam is probably the best Urologist/Surgeon in Syracuse. He removed my prostate, after a Gleason 9 diagnosis, confirmed by Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo. Incontinence, which is a common side-affect of this surgery, was resolved in weeks, rather than months, due to his competence and bladder preservation technique. Very few surgeons offer that. His Physician Assistant is also excellent. However, the local office: AMP Urology, is not like Roswell.

Met with Dr. Lam to consult with him regarding possible prostate surgery. He is a very knowledgeable and genuine professional. He answered all of my questions in a way that I could understand and showed me respect. He has a great sense of humor and that help when dealing with a subject like cancer. I would highly recommend him and will probably enlist his services if I choose surgery as a treatment option.

Dr. Lam took care of me and and ER experience. I have never met or had a more empathetic kind Dr in my experience. He listened and cared and even called on weekends to make sure I was feeling OK. He's an excellent surgeon. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

He is a very skilled surgeon with a critical eye for factors which could contribute to the patient's condition. He is unique among local urologists and I would unequivocally recommend him to patients with conditions requiring extraordinary care. He provides thorough and understandable explanations of the situation and his proposed course of actions. I was extremely fortunate to be one of his patients. He clearly has the highest respect from his colleagues and hospital and office staff members.
