Ratings for Dr. Gordon K. Lam
I have been a patient of Dr. Lam for six years and he is exceptional. He is very intelligent and up to date on the ever changing world of Rheumatology. He listens and has patience. He's a caring doctor as well. I feel very lucky to have him as my doctor.
What a find in my hometown! I went to the Cleveland Clinic for answers to my medical problems, and they basically referred me to Dr. Lam. Come to find out from his staff that John Hopkins, Duke, and Mayo also refer patients in the region to him. THey made no big deal about it--very nonshalant. He's very detailed, thoughtful, and professional. Quiet, but very nice. Spends good amount of time with me, although I know he's really busy. At least when he's with me, I feel like I'm his only patient in the world. He does research and sees patients, so I know he's on the cutting edge and is at the top of the game.
I was terribly sick and had seen several rheumatologists before being seen and diagnosed by Dr. Lam. I did make sure he had all the previous testing, reports etc. before my first visit with him. He had studied more than 100 pages of reports, testing, notes etc. that my previous Dr's. provided him with and Dr. Lam basically had a diagnosis before my 1st visit with him. Upon my 2cd visit all the test results were in and he gave me the diagnosis he initially gave me. Dr. Lam treated my rheumatoid aggressively and with in months I was feeling much better and I was given hope to continue to live. Dr. Lam is very knowledgeable. He does lack a bedside manner but the most important part for me was his treatment regime and that was fantastic. He is 'never' late for your apt. with him. Brilliant doctor.
This doctor is the smartest doctor that I have ever been to. He figured out what was wrong with me when no one else could. He literally saved my life. I would recommend him to anyone. I don't know what I would have done if he hadn't helped me. I have been seem by 3 other doctors who misdiagnosed me and gave me the wrong treatment. I now feel that I have my life back.
