    Dr. Yee Lam has been our Primary Care Physician for many years now. When my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s she proved to be a tower of strength – always available to answer questions by email, even in the middle of the night! She arranged for REACH care when it became difficult to get my husband to Family Practice and worked with them to adjust medications to find what worked best. I cannot praise her skills and compassion highly enough. When we needed Hospice care for him and through to his peaceful death at home, Dr. Lam continued to ensure I was cared for. My whole family is grateful.

    I would like to thank my primary care physician, Sarah Smithson. Number one, for putting up with me (I know I’m not the easiest patient to have). Secondly, for never giving up on me – always keeping an eye on important health issues, and giving solid medical advice for improving my health – helping me be the best I can be. Thank you!
