Appointment Impossible

Have tried to get an appointment for over a year. I am told my referral never arrived by fax but I have actually stayed on the phone while the insurance company faxed and confirmed the arrival of the fax. Finally got an appointment even though they still have no record of my referral. Oddly enough they now have my old outdated referral on file. VERY frustrating!!!

You can tell a great doctor if they spend time explaining

A good doctor is a doctor that tell you and explains to you what you want to hear. A great doctor is a doctor that tells you what you NEED to hear and that is Dr Lam! He spends a great deal time educating his patients which is lacking in many doctors these days.
