Dr Alam is the kindest, most caring Dr I've ever met. I had to spend a month in KMC, and this Dr checked on me long after his services were required. My last name is Lavender, and the color of my chart was the same. Although I was moved many times he would see that chart and come by my room. Always comforting. To know this good man is to love him! Guess you see why I give him 5 stars. Lol
