He took his time to explain me everything I need to do to get better....
I went to Dr. Lam for an ear cleaning. He was fine to work with, but I arrived on time and waited almost an hour to be seen. My appointment was for 12:05, and I arrived a few minutes early to fill out paperwork, which was finished by about 12:15 - totally normal. But then I waited for Dr. Lam for another 45 minutes, only for him to recommend that I go to another facility a block away for a hearing test. This was my first time seeing an ENT, so I could be completely wrong, but my assumption was that an *ear*/nose/throat doctor would be able to do a hearing test on site.
Dr. Lam was great. Answered all my questions even when I was asking about alternatives to what he was recommending. He personally spoke to my insurance company regarding the procedure and its coverage, which exceeded my expectation (and if I had to pay out of pocket, his price was reasonable and they were upfront about sharing it).
Dr. Herman Lam was quick to diagnose and quick to treat! Fantastic bedside manner, friendly, answered all my questions and took the time and care to explain and advise.
Doctor is very nice . He answered all my questions, was very patient . There was an issue with prescription at the beginning since my pharmacy didn’t get it and a girl at front desk kept telling me it was sent , but when I spoke to a doctor , he confirmed that it wasn’t sent out at the first place , so I guess it’s a lack of communication. Thanks to doctor -he was able to send me a new prescription after his work hours because I was in a lot of pain .
Very professional and friendly. Treated my ear and gave helpful information.
Staff members are friendly. Dr. Lam is very good at his specialty. He identified the issues right away and lessened my pain. Highly recommend this office.

Dr. Lam was super professional and answered all my questions and concerns. I had to go from his office to another place to do some tests and I didn't have to wait not even 10 minutes from Dr. Lam to see my results. The office is super neat. Overall, a very pleasant experience.
Very straightforward and helpful!
