Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Tam was professional, personable, and answered all of my questions. My exam was efficient and she made me feel at ease. I highly recommend her!
Very happy with Dr. Tam. She consulted me on birth control options and helped me choose the best one for me. Very personable, professional, and comfortable. I will keep her as my obgyn as long as possible!
The office was apologetic about the long wait, but it wasn't a big deal (a good reason to make weekend appointments). Dr. Tam is so nice and I'll be going back again!
Seriously, the most comfortable pap smear ever. If that's even a thing. She also switched out my Mirena and it was done in a few minutes. Almost painless! She put up with my anxious crying too.
Dr. Tam is great, very approachable and friendly. Really glad I have found her- especially because she has appointments on Saturdays which is great for those with intense work schedules M-F. Long wait time but that is probably because it was a Saturday.
Dr. Tam took her time to make sure I received the care I needed. My appointment took longer than she expected, but she did not rush and she made sure I fully understood the problem and my options.
I'm a new patient of Dr Tam's but out of a handful of doctors in this field that I've seen in chicago for my annual screening over the years (due to insurance changes the past 3 times), I can definitely attest that Dr Tam has left the best impression on me and I hope to be able to keep her as my doctor in the future. Great manners, professional yet friendly attitude and overall very efficient. A plus for the comfortable office/waiting room and low wait time --thank YOU!
Great! Good bedside manner and very knowledgeable. Painless!
Very personable and nice, office staff was very helpful and kind. No wait, easy to access. Parking in the facility garage is expensive though :(
She is wonderful
I passed out during my blood work and Dr. Tam and her team took excellent care of me. One staff member even offered me her lunch to snack on while I rested! What a great office and team!
Made me wait for an extended period of time and then charged me for '45 extra minutes'. Do not book- beware.
I have been going to Dr. Tam for years now. I picked her because she will see you on Saturday, and that's just what I need for work and stuff. She's super speedy with the unpleasant yearly checkup, but I feel like she barely looks at you. Oh, and this weekend when I went for my exam, I was rushed in and out that they'd accidentally given me another patient's information! No one had confirmed my birthdate or name the whole time. I'm pretty sure that's a violation. I had to like... find Dr. Tam and tell her that she gave me results from another patient's pap. Not going back.
Dr. Tam was nice, but not really that personable. I just felt like she wanted to see me and then get me out. Since it was my first time I thought she would spend more time getting to know me and my past. Not sure if I would go back
I was very pleased with my first appointment with Dr. Tam. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, didn't seem rushed for time, and kept the (could-be awkward) atmosphere very comfortable and nonchalant. Dr. Tam also gave me hope for using an IUD again. I had one in the past, but when it fell out of place from improper implantation, my previous gynecologist said it would continue to do so since I had not had children yet. Dr. Tam discredited this and told me that her process for implantation involved properly readying the cervix for the device with medication, instead of just putting it in. I will definitely be back to see Dr. Tam!
Dr. Tam made some sarcastic remarks to me that were unprofessional and did not make me feel empowered around my female health questions. For example, I told her I was nervous about getting an IUD because I had been reading feedback online from other women who described the pain, and some had emotional irregularity. Dr. Tam remarked that I shouldn't look for information from "Doctor Google." The questions I had were answered by her shoving three brochures in my hand. Her office also messed up my pre-IUD prescription documents, which resulted in me having to go to the pharmacy twice. When I emailed them about the mess up, Dr. Tam herself wrote a mean email response about how "my" chosen pharmacy was the one with a problem. Overall, not a good experience and I wouldn't go back.
Dr. Teresa Tam was awesome! She is friendly and explains everything, so that you understand what is going on and what you need to do before future appointments. Office staff was very pleasant as well!
Teresa was knowledgeable and warm. She also handled a delicate medical issue with care and concern and was willing to be accommodating to my unexpected changes
I love Doctor Tam! Her staff is so sweet and the visits are always so smooth!
Fantastic feminist doctor who treats her patients like adults.
The appointment was very rushed and I wasn't able to get the questions answered that I wanted. I felt uncomfortable. I would not come back to this doctor.
Dr. Tam is very easy to talk to and listens attentively, which I think is especially important given her field. Gynecological exams are very personal and can be uncomfortable, so I appreciate that she was able to put me at ease. And her office staff are great!
Dr. Tam was nice, but did not spend more than a few minutes with me. She did not ask any questions about my health or ask if I had any concerns. She seemed very rushed. I would probably not go back.
Dr. Tam is simply the best! After my visit, she followed up with a call from her personal cell. She goes above and beyond and is so professional.
Dr. Tam always takes time to listen and discuss treatments/procedures, making sure all options are presented and understood.
I have been seeing Dr. Tam for a few years now ever since I moved to the city. Her and her staff are so awesome and friendly! I have never had any problems. I highly recommend!
She is awesome, so is her staff
Teresa is the best, I've been to her office multiple times, she sand her staff are always friendly and knowledgeable
Always a great experience visiting Dr Tam's office. Minimal wait time, friendly staff, great service. When I had my first appointment with her it was right before Christmas. She called me on Christmas to make sure I was healing ok from my minor procedure. Very thoughtful and provides lots of documentation to read up on. Highly recommend.
This was my first visit with Dr. Tam, and I was very satisfied with the professionalism and approachability of her and her staff! I was seen within ten minutes, and Dr. Tam took the time to answer all of my questions, including reasoning and explanations using the latest medical journals and research. As this was just a consultation appointment, I cannot say for certain how specific treatments/exams would vary, but I can't imagine her bedside manner changing much. Very pleased to make the switch from my old doctor to Dr. Tam.
I've been seeing Dr. Tam for over 10 years now. Her staff is always very helpful and personable. I usually see Dr. Tam at her Sheridan location, but today I went to the Rush office and it was just as easy and smooth. I was in and out before my appointment time. I will say it was less cozy than her Sheridan office, but the location being outside of the loop is convenient since I live in the suburbs. Dr. Tam is one of the most genuine, kind doctors I've ever dealt with. She remembers her patients and seems honestly interested in you when you speak with her. She is gentle and knowledgeable. No stupid questions and no judgement. Have to love a doctor with Saturday availability. Plus with the new extended hours with her second location, it is now even easier to see her. Also a plus is she uses electronic script filling, saves you a second trip to the pharmacy!
Dr. Tam was absolutely wonderful. I went into the appointment pretty scared and embarrassed (life choices ) and she was wonderful. Her staff is great, especially her phlebotomist (I hate needles). Anyway, thank you for being great and for being open on Saturdays !
My first time visiting and Dr. Tam and her staff were amazing.
She is a great doctor and very respectful of her patients' time. My appointment only took 15 minutes!
Love that I could get a Saturday appointment. Didn't love how she moved so quickly and didn't seem to be very focused on me.
I just moved into town and was feeling horrible from a UTI. I am so grateful I found Dr. Tam. She was so thorough, caring and will be my OB/GYN going forward. Dr. Tam has a wonderful bedside manner and is also professional and knowledgeable. She is a wonderful doctor in every way!
I am extremely grateful for Dr. Tam's attentiveness and sense of urgency, I was in a lot of pain and had no idea what was happening. She was helpful, understanding and efficient. As always. Her nurses are always polite and helpful as well. I have a great experience, and appreciate the knowledge.
I've been going to Dr. Tam for 3 years now, she's always pleasant and very warm along with her staff. I love that there are always available times on Saturday and the wait to get in is less than 15 minutes. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor who is approachable, helpful and friendly.
She was great, answer all my questions plus the staff where really nice..Great atmosphere Recommend it 100%
She was one of the most professional, caring, and thorough doctors I've ever been to. She is very prompt with responses via phone calls and emails as well.
Loved my appointment at Dr. Tam's office! It was quick and informative, which was just what I needed for an early, before-work appointment. The receptionist was super friendly and I got all the information I needed.
I went for a basic annual pap. Dr. Tam was very sweet, asked if I had any questions, and made me feel comfortable. I was in and out in under an hour!
Efficient, informative, quick and easy routine checkups!
The best I have had. The first one I didn't feel violated at given the circumstances.
Too fast. This doctor didn't worry about anterior or present medical problem I should have. The gynecologic exam was good and fast
After reading wonderful reviews and having a friend recommend Dr. Tam, I was disappointed in the treatment I received at her office. She rushed through my exam and I didn't get a chance to ask my questions. This was my first time seeing her, yet she didn't ask me the basic (important) questions such as whether I am on any medications, if I am sexually active, etc. She dismissed my symptoms, and alluded to it being in my head. Later, after labs came back with a particularly difficult diagnosis to handle, I did not feel ANY support or concern. She did not provide me any counsel as to how this will affect my life...not even a brochure. Overall I was seriously disappointed with Dr. Tam, and will be switching OBGYNs as soon as my HMO allows. Lastly....what's up with the mirror right by the door?! When Dr. Tam opened the door to call for the nurse, I was still in the stirrups and all of my business was exposed.
She was really good. A little rushed, but was in and out with no problems to make for a much less awkward visit!
I felt rushed. Especially being my first time at her office, I would have appreciated if she had been a little more interested in my concerns.
Dr Tam is a smart, caring, wonderful doctor!
I loved that I was in and out in 15 minutes.
Prompt, professional, warm
Lacking interpersonal skills. Rushed through the exam and didn't take the time to understand what was wrong.
Dr. Tam was very kind and gentle. She was quick with my annual check-up, which seemed too quick for my first appointment with that doctor. But overall a good choice.
Dr. Tam is great. I really do enjoy visiting her because she's great at answering my questions and informing me of any updates regarding female care. The front desk is always friendly and happy. They openly answered my questions regarding health insurance and appointments. Great visit again.
She listen and she is very attentive.
Dr Tam was very friendly she just seemed very rushed. I appreciated the rushing through the awkward exam and it kept my wait time to a minimum, but I felt as though she didn't have time or interest in discussing any questions I had.
Dr. Tam was very friendly and professional. I was able to make a last minute Saturday afternoon appointment and was seen right away when I got there. I would highly recommend her.
excellent doctor and caring.
Very knowledgeable and clearly wants the best for her patients. Based on my visits with her, I can tell she's still enthusiastic about learning new OB/GYN practices - she was so excited I that was in the first wave of people to get the Liletta IUD... and I love it!
Extremely professional, nice, and made the whole visit very comfortable. Didn't rush anything, made sure to explain everything thoroughly, and ensured my questions were answered every step of the way. Looking forward to seeing her in the future!
Very positive and pleasant visit. Doctor Tam is really nice, professional and upbeat. I also really liked the girl who was in charge of taking my vitals prior to my appointment. It was my very first visit at this office and she made me feel relaxed and calm.
Great bedside manner
Dr. Tam was amazing! She was extremely friendly and helpful in every way possible. I'm so glad I chose Dr. Tam.
Stay away from Teresa Tam. I never write reviews, but I feel that her lack of professionalism needs to be voiced. I went in with a specific reason: I knew that I had either a yeast infection or a tract infection-- an infection of some sorts. I told her this, told her the symptoms and asked her to check for me. Instead, she demanded that I get an HPV shot, checked me for STDS and rushed me out. When I asked her what to do about the excruciating pain I was feeling, she told me: you'll get your results in two weeks. TWO WEEKS?! TWO WEEKS where it is unbearable to pee and have sex? I wound up going to Walgreens and purchasing at home remedies on my own, and in two weeks, when I still hadn't heard back from Tam, I called the office--every day, for another week, only to be told by the secretaries that they didn't have any information. A month later, I received a letter in the mail saying that I was STD free--with a hefty bill for STD tests. I didn't even ask to be checked for STDS! Tam didn't even take a urinary sample. She didn't check me for infections at all. Aside from this, I waited for over an hour. I will never return. Obviously all of Tam's awards are from diligence with books, but she obviously doesn't care about the actual concerns and well being of her patients.
The visit was wonderful! Very professional, the appointment was on time. I was able to be in and out and back to work on my lunch hour. Have been going to Dr. Tam for years and have never been disappointed with the services offered at her office. Rosemary R.
Dr. Tam has a great personality and excellent bed side manner. I travel 30 miles just for her expertise and great service ??
Nice but not overly chatty! Very informative.
I loved my visit with Dr.Tam. It was a short wait and on a Saturday! Dr.Tam is very friendly and professional. The front desk and medical assistant staff were great too!
Dr. Tam was understanding, explained things carefully, was patient and concerned, and she took her time to make sure I had my questions answered. I think she cared about me and my health issues. She seems quite competent and knowledgeable.
Friendly, gentle and made me feel comfortable. I'm new to the city and it was nice to not feel unwelcomed.
Dr. Tam is great... She is friendly and approachable. However, the front desk staff.. Not so great. The TV was loud and it took them too long to turn it down even after we asked. But overall, Dr Tam's office is agood experience.. I don't go there for the office staff
Friendly reception, Dr. Tam is friendly too, though very much to the point so you're in and out the door in a matter of minutes. Surprised that she didn't take time to ask about my medical history. Overall, good appointment.
Very kind and professional.
I've given her a chance for a whole year, but I really don't think she's the doctor for me. Don't get me wrong; she's smart and kind. But I don't feel like I was being heard. If you're going to her for just your annual pap, then you're in good hands, but not if you have other issues. I originally went to her because her hours are awesome -- she'll even meet with you on Saturday. I hate taking off of work for check-ups. I've had some problems that have been plaguing me about 3 years, but I haven't gotten any answers. Any testing that was done was done to kind of appease me, I guess. But there was never any follow up or anything. Just "oh, these tests are negative", no "well, they're negative so let's try something else". The last time I went in was for my annual pap, and she just kind of rushed me in and out, so I didn't get to ask any questions or talk about recent concerns. I'm going to miss Saturday appointments, but I will gladly trade for more attentive care.
Very efficient, pleasant experience!
Very knowledgeable doctor. Did not seemed rushed. Has a great bedside manner too.
Did not have to do a urine test which struck me as odd considering it was my first visit to this doctor and it is normally part of any annual gyno exam I've received in the past (don't they want to be 100% positive I'm not pregnant?!). I was not asked about my medical history which I would have liked to discuss in-case results came up abnormal. It seemed like she was ok providing the annual but did not want to take me on as a long term patient. I felt like I was put in a room so a pregant woman could be hurried in before me in a different room. I didn't feel as welcome in this office as I have at previous doctors.
Very easy online forms. No wait time. She was very nice as was her RN practitioner student.
Here's the deal: Dr. Tam was great! My visit was short and sweet and she was very professional. BUT as months have passed since my initial visit I am growing more disappointed with my encounters with her and her office. A few circumstances have bothered me: she called to give me results from my unusual pap smear but since I was at work surrounded by coworkers I couldn't ask questions and she said to call back when I could- except when I did call back leaving a voicemail and got a call back from her receptionist saying that Dr. Tam said she already answered all of my questions- when I said had more she wasn't available and never called back. Called a few times since then with similar results. Usually encounter very rude receptionists in these scenarios. Similarly, my insurance changed when I got a new job and called to ask about it was told very rudely that their office was closed and then hung up on. Just all around bad customer service which is unfortunate since my initial appointment was a good experience. You would think they would prioritize getting back to patients with unusual paps but apparently not....
She is awesome
The doctor's office looks old but the service was really good. Dr.Tam made sure that she responded to all my questions.
Thorough and informative
Dr. Tam has a great mix of professional knowledge, thorough relay of information and compassion.
My previous doctor had retired and this was my first time seeing Dr. Tam. All the staff was very friendly. I found Dr. Tam to be professional and easy to talk to. It was also a plus that her office is so close to the Blue Line.
Very friendly and professional. Would recommend to any if my friends and family.
She assessed and diagnosed my problems and gave me the best options for treatment without pushing me.
The staff is SO friendly and kind. I've only been there twice and the second time I went (2 months later) they remembered me. Dr. Tam is fast, but accurate. They did all they could to help figure out what was wrong with me. I am so happy I found a new "go-to" doctor
Dr. Tam was friendly, informative and very patient. She made me feel comfortable, as well and answered any and all questions I had. She was sure to address my concerns with my prescription and made recommendations accordingly. I like that they offer varying office hours which made it unnecessary for me to take off of work as I was able to see the doctor on a Saturday.
Quick and friendly. Made me feel really comfortable. I will definitely be returning for my next annual exam.
She was nice and very attentive to me. Her explanatory was straightforward - especially to first-time patient. She guided and calmed me down during treatment as well. Her office is clean and female friendly.
Felt a bit rushed, not enough time for questions.
She was so pleasant, explained my options and opportunities to care of my health. It was the shortest amount of wait time I've ever had in any office and her team made me feel very comfortable.
I thought all of the staff in the office were incredibly welcoming. Dr. Tam was friendly, professional, and helped understand why I was there.
She was very professional and made me feel comfortable
Very warm and friendly, Doctor Tam made me feel comfortable. A bit rushed, though. Handed me 3 pamphlets about 3 different prescriptions and gave a 2 minute explanation, then asked me to pick right then before I had a chance to read through any of the info or think about it. From previous research I also know she left out some important info from her explanation. Highly recommended for anyone who already knows what they want and need a doctor to do it quickly and comfortably.
Considering my situation, she approached the prognosis very delicately and tried to give me as much information as she could find for my condition. She wanted to be thorough and ordered additional testing and made sure I got an order to do that ASAP.
I love Dr. Tam! I was able to make a same day appointment which was very important to me. She also really listened and took my concerns seriously. We made an action plan and within weeks I was scheduled for a surgery to correct the issue. I always felt safe and cared for with dr. Tam. She would even call me to follow up and see how my pain was doing which I really appreciated. She's thoughtful, knowledgable, and professional. I felt very safe and look forward to continuing my care with Dr. Tam!
Loved how friendly she was! She made me feel comfortable about asking questions and was thorough during my visit in explaining everything she was going to be doing. I felt comfortable during the exam and confident after leaving the appointment that I was able to have my questions answered.
I was very pleased with my visit today (first time seeing this doctor). The women working in the office were very nice and helpful. Dr. Tam was prompt and very kind during our visit. Everything was very quick yet effective. I felt comfortable and heard.
Not the place if you have a lot of questions and need help. The time with the doctor was rushed and I had no time to really get into my concerns. Dr. Tam seems nice and professional and is a better choice if you just need an easy check up.
She is a sex negative OB-GYN. Please find another OB-GYN if you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable, educated, sensitive, with appropriate bedside manner. She's in a rush and she comes off as cold, heartless, rude and insensitive when dealing with serious issues regarding sexual health. In addition, she is severely misinformed. I would never return to her because of how judgemental and harsh she is. This was easily the worst medical experience of my entire life. Find a doctor that will take time to explain things in depth, make you feel comfortable; informed; and at ease, because she is definitely not the one. I regret seeing her very much. There are plenty of non-judgemental, sex-positive doctors in Chicago. Please don't waste your time with cold, insensitive Dr. Tam.
Very kind, knowledgable and professional. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Tam was so friendly and professional. She made me feel VERY comfortable as a new patient.
The staff was polite. The office was warm and inviting. Dr. Tam was professional and personable. I would come back again for future visits.
It was only my first time but I loved her!
Made me very comfortable. She was great.
The visit overall was great, but parking nearby is terrible. The building has a valet but they charge.
I had my first appointment with Dr. Tam today. She was incredibly kind, answered all of my questions and gave me educational material. She really knew what she was talking about and provided a comfortable environment. Dr. Tam was incredibly professional.
I waited an hour to see her and when I finally got in the room she was rushing me and not making me feel comfortable at all.
Dr Tam is great....I. had not seen her in a few yrs,but she was like I remembered....I enjoy having her as a doctor...she explained everything and allowed me to ask all the questions I wanted....
Both Dr. Tam and her staff are extremely friendly. Dr. Tam was prompt and ensured that I had all of my needs met. Highly recommended!
I will not recommend this doctor to anybody. I waited in lobby for 20 minutes and then waited for her in room for 20 minutes, she came to me for 5 minutes, she doesn't listen to the patient. Be ready, if you will have itching she will not recommend you nothing, she doesn't care about it absolutely. She made a pap smear and said it will be ready on monday, max-on tuesday, i made a recall to office and they said i will get result in a week, its the most awful doctor i had ever saw.
Very thorough, very sincere and caring doctor. Explains everything she is doing. One of the best and most comfortable obgyn appointments I have had.
She was very professional and to the point. She answered all my questions. Wait time was not more than 15 minutes and I went on a Saturday! Good doctor, I would recommend.
she was very sweet and professional.. answered all of my questions and even followed up with me.
Dr. Tam was very professional and kind. The exam was quick, which works for me.
My experience at the office was great. The office was clean and pleasant, the staff was polite and Dr. Tam's bedside manner was exceptional. I was very unhappy after the fact to find that they did not take my insurance when their ZocDoc profile listed my insurance. I also called ahead to confirm, then before I went back I asked the receptionist again and she said they were providers. So I ended up paying out of pocket for the visit when it should've been fully covered. The office staff was very unapologetic about it and refused to return my calls for months.
Dr. Tam was great. Im so happy I came to her. She was quick, which is something I look for in a doctor, I was in and out within a matter of 30 minutes. This was a saturday too so I thought it would take longer. She was kind and so professional, answered all of the questions I had and felt no ounce of judgement. I am 100% keeping this doctor.
She made everything so easy! By far the best pap I've ever had.
Though there were a lot of patients waiting the same day, Dr. Tam was really efficient and professional.
Dr Tam is kind and warm. She is thorough and makes you feel at ease. Even though she is out of network for me, I will continue to go!
Dr. Tam was wonderful. She made me very comfortable at an appointment that's never a comfortable experience! :)
Dr. Tam was great. She is very friendly and I was in and out of the office within 30 minutes. Although the appointment was quick, it was thorough. Dr. Tam stated that she will call patients personally if there are any abnormal test results; this goes above and beyond, as this call is usually made by a nurse or medical assistants in other practices.
I came to Dr. Tam with an advanced stage disease and she helped me. I love this doctor. Her staff is efficient and friendly.
Great and highly recommneded!
Very friendly and professional office, Dr. Tam had a great bedside manner and thoroughly explained everything I needed her to.
I absolutely loved her. The front desk staff was amazing too. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Before I left the girl who checked me in said it was so nice to meet me. I was really impressed by the staff and Dr. Tam. She was polite and friendly and straight forward with any questions. She explained everything she was doing. She made me feel really comfortable. This will become my regular ob-gyn for sure!! I see why she has such outstanding reviews.
Very efficient but the wait was long. She was short but knowledgeable.
I thought Dr Tam was awesome, the staff at her office is beyond incredible. I love Toni the office manager she really does everything she can to help you during any situation. The environment was really good, the wait was not long at all, overall exellent, I would most definiely recommend Dr Tam.
I felt that she carried a lot of bias towards me very likely based on my weight. While I could certainly shed several pounds, she treated me with the expectancy that I should have certain illnesses (high blood pressure, diabetes) when I didn't and don't. It was my first pregnancy and she made me uncomfortable.
Dr. Tam was great. She was empathetic, informative, and most importantly, very personable!
The staff was so kind and welcoming which is definitely an important thing at any doctors office, but especially OBGYNs. Dr. Tam was professional, succinct, and informative.
Teresa is great! She takes time to listen to your medical history and prescribe medication for your needs! She is very personable and made me feel comfortable immediately. I'm so gladiator found her on zocdoc
Well..... Ill start by saying she addressed a very serious problem right away but definitely made me feel very very terrible. Im not sure she realized this. Furthermore I felt judged for explaining my sexual history. She seemed almost appauled. She was quick and did push for me to get the hpv shots.. I only took one. Never went back to her office. Not a positive experience. Although she addressed my problem. So if you dont care for a sweet and understanding physician sure go ahead and schedule her. If you care about your feelings keep looking....
She was so sweet and professional! It was my first time visiting a OB-GYN and I'm glad I went to Dr Tam. She was very understanding and patient with me. Recommend!
She was very helpful and nice. For a first timer with a OB-GYN I did my research and I'm so glad I found her.
Dr. Tam was a pleasure to see, professional, asked questions and provided my routine exam. She took time to review my medical history and answered any questions I had. The fact they offer blood draw on site was a nice advantage.
She was an okay physician. I was prescribed a very expensive birth control. The pharmacy called her to see if a generic could be prescribed instead, however it was never changed. I ended up seeing another physician who could write me a prescription that was fully covered by my insurance.
I enjoyed my visit with the Doctor, but dealing with the rest of the staff when dealing with questions is difficult. I've had multiple questions and issues with my prescription and it's impossible to get a hold of the doctor or get any help with them. I've called multiple times to leave messages and do not receive a call back from anyone and never can seem to get an answer.
She was really nice. I'll definitely continue to go to her.
Wonderful! She was upfront and direct with everything. Did not make me feel uncomfortable at all and the whole staff were very welcoming.
Dr. Tam was knowledgeable and pleasant. She addressed my existing symptoms and concerns, as well as offering preventative advice. Furthermore, she made me feel comfortable in a medical sector which is otherwise known for invasive doctors and procedures. By far the best OBGYN I have ever visited.
She's one of the best OBYN's I've seen. Super sad that my insurance doesn't cover her. She's easy to talk to, and really has your best interest at heart.
Doctor Tam was great. I'm very happy that I chose to go to her.
I had such a horrible experience here. I felt extremely judged and pressured into receiving an HPV shot. I was never told that I needed to come back for 2 more shots later in the year and I've been having negative side effects of the shot ever since. The HPV shot was giving me MS-like symptoms, including paralysis of my legs and extreme muscle pain. I had a pap done, and was told I would be getting a call back within a week with my results. I never got a phone call, and 2 months later I received a hefty bill because my pap smear was abnormal. They never followed up with me about it.
Dr.Tam made me feel very comfortable as she took the time to get to know me and my medical history.The nurse at the front desk was also very friendly and hospitable. I will definitely be visiting this office again.
She was awesome- and when she suggested birth control pills to regulate my cycle, as soon as I told her I didn't want hormones, she was very understanding and supportive of that, rather than push something I clearly did not want. As a first time patient to any gynecologist, she was wonderful!!
She was great! I got in right away and Dr. Tam spent at least half an hour with me. I didn't feel rushed and she answered all my questions thoroughly.
Dr. Tam is great! This was my first appointment with her and she spent a lot of time with me going over my concerns and answering my question. By far the most attention I've gotten from any doctor before. Her staff was nice and friendly as well.
It was great. The front desk staff was personable and helpful, I didn't spend too long waiting, and Dr. Tam was very nice, considerate and understanding.
The office was great; Dr. Tam was very nice and not judgemental at all. she did my exam and I was comfortable, in and out in 30 mins. Excellent!!!
She was so nice, very knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly. I would definitely recommend her, especially if you are looking for a Doctor in Chicago to administer the Implanon birth control method.
Dr. Tam was my ob for both my pregnancies and she is fantastic. I trusted her completely. She is a great ob/gyn...very straightforward and knowledgeable. I'm glad I decided to stick with her for my gyn needs after the births. I highly recommend her.
