Dr. Lam is very helpful and considerate. I have had an injury issue for a couple of years almost, and have been to a few doctors. Dr. Lam is 100% the best of the bunch. I am very happy with her level of care.

I have been seeing Dr. Lam for about a year and feel much better. The wait is often pretty long but overall very worth it based on quality of care you get from her

Dr. Lam is a great dr. yes- i had to wait almost an hour to see her, but it was worth the wait. she knows what she is doing and has helped my back pain out a ton!

Dr. Lam is a talented doctor who knows what she is doing. I feel that the treatment is worth the wait and the treatment takes a few minutes but you feel better when you are done. I would recommend this doctor to everyone.

I feel Dr Lam is a remarkable doctor. Yes she is busy, but she gives you the attention you need. This is not a party visit. She has many clients because of her ability to do so much. She talks with you, goes over medications, and so forth. I did very well with her. I want to go back but my insurance is not accepted. But iv been to other pain doctors and she is worth the time you may need to wait but you will benefit from her care. The office staff is nice. Your foolish if you don't see Dr Lam.
in Norristown, PA |
She talks in a rush and never looks at you while you talk back to her. You have to wait close to an hour to just be seen by her for 5 minutes. She doesn't care if you tell her the medication she prescribed wasn't working with you or had a side effect. After a year she changed my medication and didn't care that the new medication was giving me abdominal pain. I will never recommend this doctor to anyone. The ladies up front are nice.
