Saw Dr. Alam today. First had to wait a month and a half to see her for hair loss.. When i got refferred to her i explained to the GP that I was having hair loss, my acne was getting bad and my excema was bad.I waited until my apointment today, had to wait a hour and a half to get in to see her. I understood the staff was very busy and had their hands full and was doing the best that they could, thats not the frustrating part. When she came in she looked at my form and says "i can only see you for your hair, acne, or excema not all three" At first i was a little baffled, i believed i asked her really?? She goes yeah thats not on the refferral, i know I told my GP to write down acne and excema, and my main concern was hairloss. Im a RPN so i do know what I am talking about. I said okay well we can focus on my hair but can i have a scrpit for my excema cause its brutal on my hands and showed her my hands and she wouldnt even write out a corisone perscription... Gave me a scrpit for dandruff shampoo & also Rogaine which i can just get over the counter??? WASTE OF TIME. The shampoo weas 40 bucks didnt even fill it, and i dont necessarly want to use rogaine but she didnt give me much options. Dont get me wrong, i can tell shes knowledgeable but maybe she needs to take more time wiht each patient... Woulda taken her 5 seconds to write my scrpit out then me having to book a appointment with my GP AGAIN.

I'm very happy I ended up getting referred to Dr. Alam. She took the time to diagnose my condition properly, after it was missed by my family doctor and another specialist. We're lucky to have her in Barrie.

I saw her last December 2012, she was on time my results were coming back when I was in Florida for the winter so they emailed me the results. I called and made an appointment when I got back and they can see me with in 2 weeks. Nice that she can see me so fast not like our GP or specialist you wait over a month for an appointment.

I saw her today (april 29) and she was GREAT! I had several issues and she addressed them one at a time and gave me great advice. She repeated that she was 'only a phone call away' if I had any further questions or symptoms. I HIGHLY recommend her!

Dr. Alam has a great deal of patience and has helped my husband immensely. She found squamish in two places and referred him to an excellent surgeon who operated and removed the sores before any damage was done. Thanks a million Dr. Alam A.H. Taylor

The staff was polite and efficient. As for Dr. Alam... not so much. She does not answer your questions. In fact, she barely lets you ask a question without interrupting and telling you to listen to what she is saying. Also, I have met 3 other patients from her office ranging from 21-42 years of age and I find it hard to believe that all 3 patients have the exact same acne yet they are all on the same medications and seeing NO results. I would not recommend her at all... I would advise anyone to take the drive to another city for better care as I did.

I felt really insignificant and rushed after waiting 1and 1/2 hours for 5 min of her time. I felt my concerns were made light of and not addressed
