My visit with Dr. Lam was very warming from the minute i stepped in his office. I received my well visit with lab tests. He explained very well and answered any questions that i had. I had arm pain and headdressed that very attentively with an xray to start and when my tests results came back i tested positive for RA (rheumatoid arthritis). He was very helpful explaining what RA is because i just thought it was regular arthritis. He attacked the issue right away with a list of specialist and also ordered me to get an MRI for the arm pain. He is now my primary doctor, i will be going to him from now on.
