Patient Comments (2)
Richmond, VA |
I would not recommend Dr. Fame to family and friends because he is disrespectful to patients and staff. He will help your allergies and illnesses, but he has no desire to understand the illness prior to attempting to treat it.

Ten years ago I was living in Roanoke County, seeing Dr. Fame as my personal Allergist. I was receiving injections as I had been for many years. Dr. Fame was never in a hurry to get on to the next patient and took very good care of me as to my inhalers, meds, etc. I miss him so much now that I am living in South Carolina. I would recommend Dr. Fame to everyone I would encounter that needed help with controlling their allergies and asthma! Thanks so much Dr. Fame! Shirley Hillman
