I recently had to have Mohs surgery for a spot on my face. Dr. Alam explained in detail how the procedure would go. It required six rounds to get all of it. He was very patient and didn't rush the process. Throughout the process he talked to me and made sure I was doing ok. I would recommend Dr. Alam for Mohs surgery.
This was my first visit to Doctor as I was referred for an excession of a severley A typical mole. It took one month to schedule my appointment. My appointment was at 2:30pm on a Monday. I saw the doctor at 4 pm when he came and gave me a local anthestic. He said he would return in 10-15 minutes. Doctor never came back. I left with a numb arm and nothing done at 4:45 pm. One of the worst experiences I have had with an unprofessional surgeon.
