Part of the reason for the health care mess

This doctor and his office believe that they can bill anything, provide ZERO information about cost when you ask, and bicker in the office in front of you. So if you believe getting an thousand dollar plus bill for a routine annual check-up is correct, then this is your office. If not PLEASE STAY AWAY!!! Buyer be warned!!

Working to drive up Medical costs

Go to this office for a routine annual visit, and see them bill you for over a thousand dollars in blood work. No quotes required for such charges. When you ask if there will be any charge,your told it should covered 100%. Office be bothered to check about costs. When you notified of the charges, they give wrong phone numbers n who to call multiple times. They promise to call you back regarding running up health care charges and they don't. Thus, DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE, they are the problem with medical costs!

The “Good Doctor”

I was referred to Dr. Dam back around 2000-01 by another physician, who told me that Dr. Dam was the absolute best around. Dr. Dam has been my primary care physician ever since. Dr. Dam is the genuine, traditional family doctor who we 1950’s baby boomers came to trust and respect as family. As a kid, I took for granted the close relationship between family doctor and family. So many years later now, I can’t agree more with a previous reviewer who says that “Dr. Dam is a rarity in this day and age.” Dr. Dam, seemingly always ahead of the curve in medical matters, has always steered me right. (I might also add that I always relish sharing thoughts and experiences with him during my doctor visits.) When he has had to refer me to a specialist, Dr. Dam’s prognosis was always right on. There is a sign in his waiting room that has been there for years from one with clear appreciation for Dr. Dam that reads, “the good doctor.” So true!

There isn't a better docotr!

I have been with Dr Dam for several years now and there aren't enough great things I can say about how wonderful a doctor he is. His concern and compassion for you are what strikes you first and foremost. One reviewer said it best when describes him as an "old time doctor" who gets to know and understand you. He is by far the best doctor I have been to!
