A pioneer in the field of bladder immunotherapy who is still innovating.

I've been under Dr. Lamm's care for my bladder cancer since my previous doctor "left the state" a couple of weeks after operating on me. I was amazed at how much time Dr. Lamm spent with me on my first visit to give me an overview of his methodology and answer all my questions. He performed a follow-up TURBT surgery to ensure that all the tumor was gone. That surgery was more thorough than the first one I'd received from another doctor in that Dr. Lamm was sure to scrape off some muscle tissue for an accurate biopsy and staging. I left the hospital after only a couple of hours of recovery room time and had a much more comfortable catheter than I'd had following the first surgery. Dr. Lamm also instructed me on how to remove the catheter pain free on my own while taking a shower. I've now been on Dr. Lamm's BCG maintenance program for a year and I couldn't be more appreciative of his expertise and his steady hands. The BCG instillations have been quick and pain-free. I've received quarterly cystoscopies with no issues. As an example of Dr. Lamm's responsiveness, I had to reach him through his answering service one Saturday morning when I thought I was having a reaction to immunotherapy. Dr. Lamm called back quickly and listened to my concerns and posed several questions. He quickly and accurately explained that I had probably just developed an inguinal hernia (no doubt from my zest to work in the yard after being clear from bladder cancer). Dr. Lamm has a fabulous, folksy manner and exudes confidence in a way that demonstrates his deep knowledge and ever-present drive to learn more about how to beat the cancer beast.

Great Doctor, bad support

I was referred to Dr. Lamm by a Urology Oncologist at the University of Colorado Health Center, who confirmed my bladder cancer. Dr. Lamm did the surgery and all went well. two months later, I noticed a lot of blood in my urine. I called Dr. Lamms office and asked to speak either with Dr. Lamm or Jamaka, his assistant. I didn't receive a call back that day nor the next day. I went to the ER and was admitted to the hospital. the problem wasn't my bladder, but I never did receive that call back from his office. two days ago, I called to find out how often I should be getting checked for recurring cancer. I asked for Jamaka. as of today she did not return my call. I called and asked Dr. Lamm to call. He called within a few hours. I told him the trouble I was having with his office. I asked how often I should be getting checked, he said every 3 to 4 months. i'm about 2 months over due. no one ever told me that or made an appointment. He's probably forgotten more than most Urologists have learned, but his mistake is trusting his staff.

Dr. Lamm did not know why I was at his office to see him. I waited over an hour to see him. Overall a very scary visit.
