Specialties

Dr. Zishan Alam has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

A doctor that takes time

Dr. Alam took all of my information himself and entered all the info on his computer as we talked. After test results were in, he was willing to spend as much time as needed to explain all the test results and why he was recommending what he was. Was willing to answer any and all questions. I also like that he uses as many natural supplements as possible leaving prescription chemical medications as a last resort.

Amazed at First Visit

Dr. Alam came highly recommended. I'm glad I went. So many things make sense already of what's going on with my body and why I have certain symptoms. This is after one visit. He's very educational and more thorough than any doctor I have seen. Dr. Alam really gets the full connection of the body as a whole. I am recommending him to my family, friends and patients that come to our clinic.

Tailored approach

Great physician that came highly recommended by my coworkers and friends. I feel great after following Dr. Alam's health regimen. He is on the cutting edge of medicine and we (my family and I) are very happy with his holistic approach to everybody's health. He is a great guide in diet and nutrition and he is very knowledgable with vitamins. My family and I had spent countless hours/amount of money trying to find the right supplements/information. Very glad we saw him. He was able to help me,my spouse, and ALL of my teenagers. Completely tailored approach with each one of us. A true family physician that sees the whole family. God bless him.
