Dr. Andrew Lam's Ratings
After having cataract surgery almost 2 years ago, I suffered vitreous detachments in both eyes, leaving my eyes filled with hundreds of debilitating floaters. My life was miserable. This affected all phases of my life from my work in the pharmacy which requires a lot of computer work and reading small print to driving, watching tv, reading etc. All I wanted to do was go home at the end of the day and sit in the dark so I couldn't see the floaters. I was referred to Dr Lam by my cataract surgeon to see if he could help. Dr Lam performed vitrectomies on both eyes and removed 99% of the floaters. I was absolutely amazed at the results. I am eternally thankful to Dr Lam and all of his staff for essentially giving me my life back! I found him to be very straightforward about what to expect from the procedure and the risks involved and willing to answer any questions. A++ job!!
The pursuit of excellence must be the yardstick by which to measure Dr. Lam and his staff. The fact that I can still see out of my right eye after one year is not lost on me. Thanks to one and all.
Dr. Lam has been my retina specialist since I had a crisis in both eyes at the same time in September, 2010. First he did the surgery to repair a torn retina in my right eye. Then he began treating bleeding and swelling of the macular area of the left eye with shots every six weeks. I've had 36 shots to date. Dr. Lam has been the kindest, gentlest, most caring doctor one would hope to have when one has to get a shot directly in the eye every six weeks. He is also very willing to answer questions and help me learn what I need to know as a patient. He is one of the most intelligent doctors I have ever encountered. In addition, Dr. Lam is surrounded by a staff of nurses, technicians and administrative people who are warm, personable and excellent at what they do. I feel welcomed and cared for by everyone when I go there.
I am an 85 year old male who has been under the care of Dr. Lam for several years. He has treated me for wet age related macular degeneration in both eyes. His course of treatment has resulted in both eyes currently being stable. I find him to be a highly professional, skilled and caring doctor. Thanks, Dr. Lam, I would recommend you to anyone.
I developed symptoms of a torn retina on a weekend. Rather than make me wait until Monday, Dr. Lam came into his office on a Saturday afternoon. It was determined that I indeed had a tear in the retina. Dr. Lam performed laser surgery and all is now well. I found him to be very competent, highly professional, kind and compassionate. The office staff and assistants are efficient and personable.
Not recommended. Terrible listener. Moves like a bullet train and takes no real time for patients. Arrogant. Manhandles people during procedures. Unclear. The worst. There is one assistant who does the eye exam who is amazing. Other than that - this place is awful. Look elsewhere.
