Dr Alam has been taking great care of me for several years. He and his office staff are professional, caring people who get things done right, the first time. They are a ‘top shelf’ group that has changed my life in a major, positive way. I look forward to my visits with them.

My experience sucked! I would not recommend him. I had a lot of trouble getting my medications and the staff is some of the rudest l have ever seen in a doctor office.

I went to him early last year and before l started with him l told him and the staff what medications l had been on for many years . The one med is not one many patients take so l wanted to make sure l could still get it if l changed doctors and saw him. They said no problem with me getting the medications. So l went to see him. After that l had all kinds of problems getting my medications. The staff didn't know what they were doing. I had to walk them thru it with ins. Got another doctor QUICK!

Dr. Alam was to perform a regular colonoscopy on me. There were complications when I stopped breathing, Head/chin lift tilt was performed that left me with neck and back injury and lots of medical cost. Dr. Alam did not tell me or my husband of the complications and when I scheduled a follow up appointment for my biopsy results I was told I did not need to come in to come back in 5 years. I have left several messages for him and no response. I contacted the hospital and medical board. Horrible

Dr. Alam was able to diagnose and treat my crohns when all other doctors just said I had IBS. I'm glad to have a doctor who actually knows what he's doing! Quick and to the point visits, short wait time, and nice girls that work for him.

The emergency room doctor told me urgent for me to see Gasto. I scheduled an appointment and went to the office and there was no one there. Answering service after 3 tries finally gets in touch with DR and he said he was closed today and would be there tomorrow. I rescheduled for the next day and received an email late in the evening stating the office would call me to reschedule for over a week from now. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!! Wasted my time I could have actually been seeing a DR.

Staff is very unprofessional. I got connected to voice mail twice before finishing inquiry. They do not listen to you, they bill medicare with wrong codes leaving patient to pay hundreds of dollars.
