    Heard that Dr Lam is very caring and decisive. And more important, he is not "commercial". Agree?

    I know of someone who thinks very highly of him. I, however, was very unimpressed by the one experience I had of him. I had an appointment with him to do a complete scan at about 20 weeks as he is supposed to a specialist in looking out for abnormalities. First he walked in and mistook us for another couple, giving us a scare by asking us if we were the couple with thalassemia. Then after asking us a couple of questions he bounced out of the room for 5 mins. Then he came in again and asked the nurse to set me up for the scan and then promptly disappeared for another 10 mins. While he was doing the scan, the nurse came in, whispered something in his ear and then he went away again for another 5 mins. Upon completion of the scan when he concluded that the foetus was fine, I barely had time to ask him one question, which he answered with his back to me as he was rushing out of the room. If I were to give him the benefit of the doubt it would be to say that perhaps I was a one off patient, only in for a scan and that he prob. has more time to give to patients who are with him for the entire pregnancy. But seeing as my scan cost $1200, I believe I didn't get my money's worth of attention. That clinic that he practises in also comes across as a very commercially inclined practice.

    I know this is an old post. I have a recent experience with him and I am totally agree with JOJO.

    I had an appointment with him for my 20 weeks scan (structure/anatomy scan), he canceled at the last minute (1 hour before the appointment time) I was so disappointed, suppose this is the first time my husband get to see his baby.
    Then reschedule the appointment for few days later. I arrived 15 mins before the appointment time but he was late for 1 hour.
    After the nurse prep me for the scan, I still have to wait for him for another 10-15 mins. The scan was very brief and fast at the end he said everything fine, baby is fine. And ask me to wait for the report and another 30 minutes wait.
    I paid $2000 for the scan which include DVD, report, and ultrasound pictures plus 1 4D picture.
    After I arrive home and watch DVD, it only recorded for 15 seconds!
    I feel like I went to PUBLIC for scan but I have to pay $2000! with all the waiting time and no DVD I feel so disappointed.
    I hope you all have a better luck.

    I am seeing Dr. Lam privately and I think he's nice. It's a cash only place(!) and very busy but the facilities are top notch, the scan quality is excellent and he answers questions.

    had him for 2 pregnancies - 2010 and 2011 - very professional, succint...yes, but if you have any questions he'll answer. gave me as much time as i needed...wasn't alot since it was my 2nd and 3rd...his scans are top notch and he is very thorough. 2 other scans said baby #2 had downs, he was my 3rd opinion and he was 100% my baby didnt have downs at all - no indications what so ever...believe it comes down to his skill and the machines at his office. my baby is find and healthy and no downs. he even told me not to waste money to get the blood test as it was not needed!

    In the doctor's defense, this is quite normal for an OB/GYN as his patients do go into labour and have emergencies during the day when a doctor is seeing other patients at his office. Normal protocol would be to cancel an appointment on short notice of another patient has an emergency or is in labour.

    I am sorry you had a bad experience with him. I am one who highly recommends him for complicated scans and both my OBs recommended him for the 12 and 20 week scans. All the popular ones are busy and all expensive. If it was me, I would have been firmer in getting my questions answered. You are right to make sure you get adequate time with the dr for the money you are spending.
