Dr. Ajam is an excellent listener. (This was a referral from my family doctor and although it took several months to get an appointment, it was worth the wait.) He had read my records, but wanted me to tell my story - seemed truly interested. Then he asked how he could help, I needed to know what was wrong and could he treat or help me. He did give me a diagnosis and a treatment plan. He explained things very well. He did give me a diagnosis and a treatment plan. He explained things very well. Both my husband and I felt comfortable with Dr. Ajam and relieved someone finally had answers. We would definitely recommend him.

Although I did not call his office, I did send a message to Dr. Ajam via MyChart asking about a particular issue related to emergency surgery I had had. HE CALLED me. That was above and beyond what I expected, and was pertinent, timely & so helpful for questions the surgeon had.
