Dr. Lam is very disrespectful. She didn’t give our baby the shot she needed even though a supervisor called her and told her that our baby is covered.

Horrible service in the office, wait time is ridiculous and both front desk and Dr are rude. It should not matter what insurance you have as to the quality of attention you receive. There should be better bed side manners with addressing patients. DO NOT go here! Rude Dr and rude front desk lady!...more

Friendly office staff and very informative doctor. My daughter was sick and Dr.Lam carefully examined her and prescribed the medications needed. The office was very clean and we did not have to wait long at all compared to other doctors.
