One Star

Dr. Alam seems knowledgeable and competent, but has a policy of never talking to patients on the phone or by email. Even if you have a simple question, you have to drive over and pay for an office visit. For sending medical information back and forth you have to use the post office. Maybe some people don't mind this kind of policy, but I found it curious and not conducive to good patient care.

Overall Good, and would recommend

Dr. Alam is very nice, she listened to every concern I had, and explained/worked with me well when I wanted to try different treatments. My problem was reaching her when I had questions outside of her office. I either had to schedule an appointment and go out of my way to go just to get a very quick answer, or I had to let the secretary know what my question was. I hated this because somethings I don't want anybody to know except for my doctor. I also didn't like her secretary giving an opinion about my questions.
