Dr. Van N Lam has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Went in for a f/u appt today and the front office wouldn't let me complete my visit today because of a past due balance. I had no problem paying the balance, but then the front office stated they couldn't make change. They are very unorganized and not the greatest customer service. While the front office was learning how to count change back, the nurse informed me that now my appt needed to be rescheduled because Dr. Lam was in a meeting. I book my appt 2 weeks in advance, didn't get to be seen, wasted my gas & time, and now they want me to find more time to set aside for their mishap. Very unprofessional. I like the doctor, however I will not go back due to his staff.
He listens to you, gives you detailed and specific plans of any treatments and always makes the right diagnoses. He has no "holier than though attitude" that most other Dr's "suffer" from (along with mis diagnoses and an attitude) and is both very personable, caring, intelligent and has a great sense of humor. I'm 57 and he has been one, on a very short list of Dr's. in my life, that I completely trust! I'm very relaxed with him, urgent Appointments are easy, the staff is a reflection of him and it's always a pleasure go there. My oldest Son referred me to him and I only wish it happened many years ago sooner! I would like to keep him for myself, but I urge anyone to go see him, as he will exceed all your expectations and then some. Plus, he cares about his Patients more than the money. Considering all of the above, what else would you want in your regular Dr.? Love Dr. Lam!!!
