Office staff is very rude. Doctor very inconsiderate of patient's time. Nothing exceptional about his service. The staff performs most of the tests and doctor does very minimal work on the patients.

Had surgery in '06 All is still going well. To previous malcontent- if you want the best, be prepared to wait. Or maybe you should go the the vision center at UMDNJ where Dr. Lama came from. If you do bring a picnic lunch!

Expect to wait over 2-3 hours or more. Office staff is over worked and very rude. They overbook unlike any other Dr in the tri-state area. Expect to see at least 20 people in the waiting room at any given time. His bed-side manner needs lots of work.

Dr. Lama is the best glaucoma specialist in the area. I have been treated by many specialists and Dr. Lama is one of the best and was trained by one of the best (who was also a former Dr. of mine). You do wait but he cares and spends the time to tell you exactly what is going on. He doesn't rush you and takes the time to explain everything. Overall a wonderful Dr. and well worth the wait.

Dr Lama is a highly skilled surgeon who operated on my eye and placed a shunt for my steroid induced glaucoma. He did a wonderful job and I healed well with no complications. Very caring and committed.
