Even though it was a very busy day. Dr. Alam took the time to chart out a course of action necessary to remedy my condition and be certain that both my spouse and I were clear in the procedure process and expected outcome. We could not ask for better care.

Another physician in the practice identified a squamous cell carcinoma on my wrist, explained the seriousness of it, and told me he would ask Dr. Alam to remove it that same day, which Dr. Alam did. I appreciate the concern and responsiveness that both Drs demonstrated when presented with a problem that required immediate attention. I could not have asked for more from either of them.
