Dr. R. Elaine Lambert's Ratings
Dr. Lambert is knowledgeable, highly professional, compassionate and helps you understand your condition and your treatment. She returns calls, communicates well with other doctors working with you, and never gives you the "bum's rush" out of her office like so many other doctors do. She discusses your treatment options and makes sure you have a high level of comfort with the directions you take. She is an outstanding physician and wonderful human being. I recommend her highly.
Best doctor I have ever had. Have been seeing her for over 20 years. She is wonderful. Thorough, helpful in all areas. Last year I had heart surgery (I was 41) and an unexpected massive stroke. Dr. Lambert came right to the hospital to see me. She is the best!
Being referred to DR Lambert saved my life. After a year of crippling pain, misdiagnosis, and being treated alternately like I was crazy or a manipulating pain-med addict, I finally got a proper diagnosis, and treatment. My life is 100 percent improved. DR. Lambert is patient, attentive, and obviously a genuine expert; in a world full of quacks and hacks. I can't recommend this DR. enough.
Easily the best single doctor I've ever dealt with. After a year and a half of being unable to walk. She fixed my problem in one visit. She was insanely thorough, she asked 1000 and one questions. I had been shuffled around and mistreated, all while paying astronomical sums. I had spent tens of thousands of dollars on MRI's, Epidural injections, needed narcotics to get through the day, was told I had Lyme disease, candidasis, you name it. If you are not certain you ever had an injury, If you don't clearly have bulged discs, etc. Go to doctor lambert first! You will save thousands.
I agree with one of the other reviewers. She is tied for first as the best doctor I've ever had (the other was Dr. Sunseri in San Jose; she has, sadly, retired). Dr. Lambert is concerned, knowledgeable, helpful, but also willing to talk and to listen to patient input. She is willing to try new medications. She is willing to be educated about things she's not familiar with. If you are having an acute problem, her staff gets you in asap, and they are wonderful at calling in refills. I am so lucky that Dr. Sunseri referred me to Dr. Lambert in the first place. Even if I move I will make a huge effort to get back to Dr. Lambert each year for my yearly exam. She's that wonderful.
I went to Dr. Lambert after having gone to top ten Medical Center's Rheumatology Clinic, where they told me to "come back in 3 months if it gets worse." They were stumped by what was going on, and did not think it was a rheumatological problem. Dr. Lambert found a lab finding that they never pointed out to me, which clearly indicated that there was an inflammatory process going on. Although she, too, was stumped, she was willing to keep trying different drugs and treatments until we found something to alleviate the symptoms. She is extremely thorough, especially the first time you meet her and she takes your history, and has an excellent bedside manner. She has injected my knee a few times, and each time made it very comfortable. She is also very responsive to inquiries and requests for refills. Overall, probably the best doctor I've had.
