Dr Alam is very professional and thorough. I appreciate that he explains things in great detail because while some patients may not want to hear the technicalities of their condition, for me, the more details the better. He offers his professional opinion and respects my choices. He was extremely busy today but I didn't feel rushed. It was a very good visit.

The office was busy but I filled-out most paperwork from PDF files and brought to office. I only sat down for about 20 minutes before being called. The assistant was very nice and Dr. Alam was amazing. He knew exactly what the problem was and what to do about it. Nice personality and answered my all questions. I got a shot of cortisone and will go to physical therapy for a couple weeks. No need for any surgery at this time. If I need to I will go back again for followup. I fully recommend Dr. Alam.

The front office staff and the assistant were very friendly and professional. The x-ray tech was efficient and sensitive to my pain. Dr Alam was very professional and thorough. He read my health profile (some doctors I've visited don't seem aware of patient provided health histories), asked pointed questions, listened to my replies, answered my questions and offered options for treatment. This was my first visit and I'm hopeful that Dr Alum will successfully treat my condition.

The office staff was professional and courteous. I waited only about 10 minutes before being taken to the treatment room and interviewed by the Nurse Practitioner. Another 10 minutes or so I was seen by the doctor who was exceptional. Would highly recommend him to friends and family,

Orthopedic practices tend to be busy places and often can be impersonal. Once you get past his staff, Dr. Alam was very personable and thorough in his examination of my complaint of leg pain. He referred me for MRIs and then a pain management specialist.

My son is non speaking Autistic. He was very good communicating with him and understood immediately his pain status. Since he had very relaxed manners my son was very comfortable with him.

I did not like being fitted for a brace by someone that didn't seem very interested in whether it fit, if I knew how to adjust it. He never mentioned how to clean it, he never really described how it should fit. I would much rather have had my doctor explain these things clearly. Everything felt rushed, and I was an hour early! And THE "assistant's" breath was terrible - he really needs to see a dentist soon. He looks over-fed and underpaid. Never once really looked me in the eye. Loved the doc - for the 4 minutes, so...

The staff was friendly and efficient. The facilities were adequate but older and just functional, not decorated in a typical manner for a doctor's office. The room I saw the doctor in doubled as a storage area. I felt like I was sitting in a storage closet. The doctor was helpful and gave me good advice. But after being seated in the exam room I waited about a half hour to see him. Given that it was my first visit and I had to complete a lot of forms and they had to look up my records elsewhere I was not too surprised. I doubt that I will return to this practice, however.

The front desk was great. All people involved (pa,X-ray tech) were very nice. Dr alam was soft spoken and listened to what I had to say. I liked him very much. I don't have insurance and his charges were very fair. My treatment is still ongoing. Surgery may be in my future. I think I am in very good hands

I have visited this office before and seen a different doctor and had to wait over an hour to be seen. I don't know if this was a fluke or if it was because I went earlier in the day, but I was seen right on time. Dr. Alam was efficient yet knowledgeable and gave me a much better cast based on my injury.

Excellent service from both receptionist. Very efficient and personable. The medical assistant was very professional and helpful. He understood my concerns and was able to relay that information to the doctor before Dr. Alam saw me. The x-ray technician was very professional and understanding. The Doctor was very thorough in his exam. He was a great listener. He let me ask all the questions I needed to ask. He gave me thorough instructions for my back. The medical assistant showed me how to use my new lumbar support wrap. Excellent staff.

My right hand was hurting when I move it in certain positions. The doctor did x-ray, said there is no issue at all. He recommended to wear a hand brace only during sleeping. Followed his orders, I am writing this review after almost 25 days of my visit. My hand is perfect. God Bless this doctor.

(I had a car accident and was referred by my other doctor - very reputable rederral!) The receptionists answered my questions & were very polite, all while having other patients in the waiting room. When I was called back to my room, They had a simple system to complete the consultation, they had me do a x-ray, and doctor's physical exam all took less than an hour! I highly recommend this doctor! Thank you! - WF
