I was in TEARS... Happy tears that is, I've always had painful & heavy periods, I used to miss school & work because of it. I tried different birth control options & most didn't help or interfered with my meds. The depo shot was the only one that worked but I was refused it after some years on it. I was put on Nexplanon & it inverted my cycle, nonstop bleeding with 1-week breaks (pains during the breaks). I started looking to get a Hysterectomy. At this point, I've had too many health issues & would rather adopt if/when I'm ready. I saw MANY different MDs & I told them my history they ALL refused. Someone recommended Dr. Tam. I gave her my history, she asked MANY questions, ran tests & agreed. At my Post-Op, I was shown that I had Adenomyosis. (I also had pain during intercourse but assumed it was just my partner.) I'm FINALLY PAIN-FREE!! ;)

I visited All For Women Healthcare for the second time (post-annual) to get genital lesions and pelvic area soreness checked. She very quickly checked my genital region and asked minimal questions before even doing so. She determined I had contracted genital herpes and said what she would prescribe, but gave no indication of when I would know the strand, or gave any need-to-know info as now someone with an incurable STD. She was literally in my room for less than 5 minutes and I will not return

I went with my daughter to see the doctor and was very impressed with her very caring nature! She makes you feel at ease and answers any and all questions. Would recommend her to anyone.

Total lack of care and attention. Staff misspelled my name, address, took my insurance information but didn't send it to their billing office, canceled appointments, instead of rescheduling, and the DR hasn't returned my call for TWO WEEKS despite many follow ups. This is the most poorly run office I've ever encountered, and it is mind-blowing that a Doctor cannot spare 1 MINUTE of time for an existing patient. Don't waste your $$ or time.
