The doctor was very very kind and she listened very well. I love how she took the time to explain certain things in case they were confusing. She made me feel as if I could tackle this problem and prevent it along the way and I love how she always stopped to asked questions every now and then and listened very well and patiently whenever I had some.

she is awesome
Good.
Good experience.
I am very happy with Dr. Tam, she really listens to what you have to say, makes suggestions and is sympathetic. The reason I changed doctors was because the previous one did NOT listen but merely preached her opinions no matter what I told her. Its important to feel your doctor is on your side and wants the best for you. Dr. Tam is excellent!
I am very happy with the care I receive.
During my appointment, Doctor wasn't interrupted multiple times. I felt every interruption took time away from ME to discuss my lab results, concerns and questions regarding my health. Office seemed so busy and appointments were running behind. I don't like it, especially when I commute over 20 miles to appointment and then had to wait. They need to need to improve managing appointment slots and minimize interruption.
Dr. Tam is so knowledgeable, willing to discuss and helpful in decisions about my care. I feel very lucky to have her as my doctor.
I'm very comfortable and satisfied with Dr. Tam's attentiveness and explanations.
Over all she listened & care to the patient.

Dr. Tam is an awesome physician! I come from a family of physicians - my father even ran a residency program for twenty years - so I'm pretty well-versed in what constitutes appropriate knowledge and behavior of physicians. Dr. Tam covers all bases. Her knowledge base is phenomenal and her concern for her patients is top-notch. She is personable, listens well, and clearly has her patient's best interest at heart. She absolutely is the best internist I have ever had the honor to see.
I am very satisfied by having Dr. Tam as my doctor.

great experience
I like Dr Tam. overall she is a nice lady. but I feel like she just does the bare minimum. maybe it's me. maybe she's tired of me complaining about the same things year after year but I sort of feel like she doesn't care to be bothered by it. my symptoms are mild I suppose but they effect my life. I have cried the past few times I've seen her because I feel overwhelmed and like no one cares to help me. I've gone to multiple doctors- her, my ob, an endocrinologist- and I get no help. I just get passed back and forth from doctor to doctor with what feels like a lack of help, a lack of answers, and a lack of compassion. Dr Tam sat with me for 45 minutes (I appreciate her time) but there were no real answers. she just kept saying "hmmm, I don't know". but it didn't feel like she cared to try and know. so once again, I left a doctors office, as I have many times over the past few years, with no answers and sat in my car sobbing because I continue to feel like no one in the medical field cares. doctors don't connect with you or show genuine compassion any more. I feel like a number. someone they don't remember and don't care to remember. and I see now why people chose to not even seek medical care anymore.
I'm very happy with Dr Betty Tam.
Been with Dr. Tam for 12+years and happy she is still my doctor!
Fair.
