Albany, NY |
Rude individual and never runs on time. I get my nails cut by her and I’ve gotten two infections.
Clifton Park, NY |
Dr. Lam was very gentle and kind to my school aged daughter who was quite nervous about this visit. I was able to get an appointment in a timely fashion which alleviated my child's worries. I would definitely go to her again should my kids need to return.

I was experiencing foot pain and called Dr Lam's office and they were able to quickly get me an appointment with her. Her office is clean and the nurses and receptionist was very friendly. Dr Lam took her time listening to me and worked with me to formulate the best plan of action. She was thorough, knowledgeable, and had different options for my treatment. I would recommend her to anyone.
Clifton Park, NY |
My daughter was referred by her pediatrician for an ingrown toenail. Dr. Lam was able to see her immediately and was kind and professional.
Schenectady, NY |
Nasty human being. Rude as can be, the way I heard her talk to her office help is horrible. Wouldn't recommend at all

Awesome doctor and very friendly office environment.
Clifton Park, NY |
The doctor is very rude. While waiting for my exam, I heard her telling a child she was overweight and that is why her feet hurt. The office smelled like a dead rodent was there. One of the receptionists was yelling at someone on the phone, which must have been a personal call. Very unprofessional atmosphere! The Dr was late and rushed through my appt.

Rude, just interested in selling products at a high cost. Trying to sell me things before she examined my son. Waited an hour and a half. Never again will we be going back.
Saratoga Springs, NY |
Very snippy and unprofessional.
