I was well treated throughout the process of surgery and recovery for a torn retina. The office staff was helpful and there is even a real person who answers when you phone the office!! Dr Lam was kind and is an extremely skilled surgeon. Very impressive

Dr. Lam agreed to see me on a Saturday - was paged at the hospital - to repair a torn retina that had occurred the night before. His intervention - laser procedure on two tears - prevented a torn retina and more complicated (with no guarantees of success) later on. My vision is unimpaired. Dr. Lam is clear and concise. He answers questions in depth and in understandable terms. I highly recommend Dr. Lam, particularly in an emergency.

Office was under construction, dust was flying everywhere. Had to wait too long to be seen. Sought a 2nd opinion because Dr. Lam's diagnosis didn't fit what actually happened. I feel that Dr. Lam did not listen and that damage to my vision could have been minimized. I definitely would NOT recommend this doctor to anyone I know.

The back of house staff is helpful once you get past the front desk. The office recently expanded only to make more room for WAITING! We have to wait at least 30-45 minutes past our scheduled appointment time on every visit, every month.

Dr. Lam was very patient with me. He explained things clearly so that I could understand my eye problem and he allayed my fears by reassuring me that I was not going to go blind. I trust him with my eyesight. I would recommend him to all my friends and family.

Great experience at a terrible time in my life. He reattached my retina that surely would have left me blind were it not for Dr. Lam's positive energy and timely professional care. I also enjoyed the staff as my first visit was at Halloween and everyone was in costume (not the Dr.). He was very eager to follow up & made sure I knew I could call anytime. I was almost disappointed when I had my last check up and he said he was done. Thank you Doctor. I am sure you are doing the same great job for someone else now. Andrew P.

Dr. Andrew Lam and his entire staff are very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, competent, kind and respectful. Having recently needed their professional help with retinal tears, I would strongly recommend Dr. Lam and his excellent staff! My wish would be that there would be more doctors and staff of this high caliber for patients to place their care in!

Dr. Lam has been truly an excellent doctor for my mother's eye care. She has had Macular Degeneration (dry) for over 20 years, but has managed to retain much of her sight. When one of her eyes developed wet macular degeneration, Dr. Lam was able to stop and reverse much of her vision loss. My mother is 81 years old. she is a a quilter, a seamstress, baker and is the Office Manager/Hostess of our Bed & Breakfast. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Lam and his staff for enabling my mother to continue to live independently and continue the activities she so cherishes.
