I am a new patient and did not have an appointment. I called first and then walked in and waited about 30-40 minutes before I was seen. I considered the wait time reasonable without an appointment. The receptionists at the frontdesk were courteous. The doctor was very patient with me and listened carefully to the reasons of my visit.

Dr. Kam was very thorough, very friendly, had a very nice manner and I instantly felt comfortable with him and his staff. Office was very clean and orderly, staff at the front reception was very nice and accommodating. There is anadjoining parking lot for up to 30 minutes but I parked on the street just in case. Building was easy to find and get to, just minutes away from the cross island expressway. I’m really looking forward to working with him as I get my health in order. Thank you again, Dr. Kam!

It is a small but well managed office. The front desk staff and nurse are sooo warm and caring. Doctor Kam is the most patient doctor I’ve ever met. He doesn’t rush at all, really listens to my concerns and gavethorough explanations and available options for my problem. I appreciate that they don’t overbook so the wait time is kept to under 15minutes. Also everyone there is bilingual proficient in both English and Chinese. He will be our family PCP for years.

Dr. Yi Sheng Kam, listened to every single concern that I had without interrupting and never made me feel rushed. After listening to me, he gave me a thorough explanation of the condition I may or may not have and possibleoutcomes after test results come back. Aside from Dr. Yi Sheng Kam, the staff that work at this facility are very polite and welcoming. There are not enough words to express how happy I am with my visit with Dr. Yi Sheng Kam and his staff. I will definitely be coming back. Who ever is reading this: I highly recommend this DR!

Very friendly (him and staff), and he actually made a point to LISTEN and make sure you didn't have anything else to share before trying to diagnose/solve the problem. More old school (ie. manual blood pressure reading rather than machine) thanother places I've seen lately, but I'm okay with that.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Kam. I have not had a consistent primary care doctor over the years. He was incredibly thorough - he took the time to go over my family history, ask detailed questions about my health,and went above and beyond in checking out even the smallest details. His staff is very nice and friendly, and his assistant took blood very professionally - hardly felt a thing. Dr. Kam then actually called me himself late on a Friday afternoon to go over all of my blood work - even though everything was normal. This was a first for me, and was truly appreciated. I'm hoping Dr. Kam will be my primary doctor going forward.
