Ratings for Dr. Joseph M. Lam
Best dermatologist ever! For 8+ years, my daughter had seen 2 previous dermatologists and nothing worked. She was even told by one of the doctors before we started consultation that there was no cure for eczema, so why were we there? Dr. Lam is friendly, patient, kind, caring, and most definitely knowledgeable. You're lucky if your child is his patient.
We saw dr Lam this week for the first time. My 8 year old was super nervous. He came in with the best addituide and showed her some cool magic tricks. He is a doctor that truly cared. On the way home my daughter asked when do i see him again he was fun. Highly recommend dr lam
This Dr is AMAZING!!! He saw my son after being admitted at Children’s emergency and he was so kind, helpful, knowledgeable, supportive, and knew exactly what the problem was. We were so happy to have answers after seeing 6 doctors in 30 hours! He prescribed medication that started working very quickly and thankfully my son can eat again! Thank you Dr Lam for not only being an amazing doctor but for also for being an amazing human being and kind to my little guy and me at our worst! If anyone gets to see this man they are lucky to have the chance to see him!!!!
A doctor or a magician? Why not both? He diagnosed my daughter in about 2 minutes what a slew of doctors could not figure out for 6 years. She really hates her skin issue but he made her feel confident that it could be fixed and even gave us fun suggestions that would encourage her being involved in the maintenance. You can really feel the love he has for his craft, and his knowledge and compassion are evident the moment he walks in the exam room.
