The front office staff were. very friendly and helpful. I spoke to the staff the day I scheduled and came in to pick up new patient forms that they were the most courteous staff I have come across in the desert and it made my experience very easy and pleasant. Dr. Lam was warm, patient, thorough and informative in my visit. He took his time explaining test results and the next step with me and all new patient information. He went the extra mile in helping support me with diets and menus, dos and don'ts whlie working through these medical issues. I would recommend him and their office to everyone. Thank you.
