Ratings for Dr. Daphne Tam
I feel lucky to have Dr. Tam as our family doctor, she is different from others doctor, she will never refuse to see me if I am sick without appointment but this has happened to many others doctor that I have been before. She is very details and considerable, she gave me lots of suggestion on my health improvement issue. My family really like her. Her staff are very nice too, always want to refer my friends to her but unfortunately she is too busy to accept more patient.
I've been seeing Dr. Tam for years, but honestly I don't know why. She's not overly knowledgeable, and I often feel like I'm rushed out of the office. She's not the worst doctor one can have of course, and she can be friendly, but let's just say that if I suspected that I had a serious problem, I'd definitely want a second opinion. I'm very disappointed because a family member that also sees Dr. Tam recently had a new baby and was actually rejected as a new patient! That is NOT OK. It took him ages to find another doctor. Honestly the only reason why we haven't all switched doctors is because there are so few out there that are accepting new patients. If these doctors think they're popular because they're good at what they do...the reality is that people are just desperate to have one.
I've been seeing Dr. Tam since I was a teenager and now I'm a mother of a young toddler and my whole family still sees her. She never hesitated to send me off to do more testing/blood work/ultrasound if she suspected something is wrong, and is never one to brush me off when I have concerns (and a lot of my concerns in the past turn out to be something serious - and I wouldn't be typing here if she didn't catch them). She's friendly, a good listener (of medical or personal issues), and provides good care to my baby. Some commenters below complain that she rushes. I hope they realize that if they were to see other docs they wouldn't even get the 15-20 mins they get with Dr. Tam! Dr. Tam tries her best to see all the patients who want to see her the same day, and she always work late hours after closing.
