Dr. Lam was a great doctor, I would definitely recommend him! For those who gave him negative reviews because he didn't listen for hours on end about your problems, take in mind that he is a psychiatrist, not a therapist. That's not his job, his job is to ask you how you're doing and how your medicine is affecting you, and based on that, make sure your current pills are working the way they're supposed to. Overall, I really appreciated doctor lam's kindness and service. He really made a difference in my life and changed it for the better!

Doctor Lam helped my daughter regain her personality. She is once again her lively, giggling self. I went to many doctors before him, but Doctor Shiva Lam was the one who changed my daughter's life. He brought back the time I had lost with my daughter through a series of comforting and courtious appointments. THANK YOU DOCTOR LAM!!

Dr. Lam does not care about his patients. My son was his patient for nearly one year. The only thing we ever got from him was prescriptions. Nothing more.
The finale for me was when I had to leave work and drive 1 1/2 hours to pick up my son and drive him to Dr. Lam's office for a routine appointment. A wreck on Mopac detained me. I began calling his office 15 mins prior to appointment time to advise them I was running nearly 10 mins. late. Because he is too cheap to get call waiting, I got a busy signal on numerous attempts and couldn't leave a message. Finally, we arrived to his office 9 mins. late. We dashed up the elevator only to find that Dr. Lam had left. I asked if his receptionist could please call him to let him know we were there, as he couldn't be too far away and she said she couldn't do that for us.
That was my last interaction with Dr. Lam or his mis-managed medical practice. I would not recommend him to anyone who is looking for a caring physician.

He has been my Dr. for over 2.5 years. He always has time to spend with me and listens and takes what I say to heart. He is one of the very few Dr. that sees his inpatients on the weekends. I have never waited in his office for more than 10 minutes. I never feel pressured during my appointment. He gives me as much time as needed.

Dr. Lam has to many patients, no time, works at a Mental Hospital, plus private practice. Just prescribes pills and more pills. Does not listen, does not answer questions. Receptionist is RUDE!

Go somewhere else to find help.

Dr. Lam is a nice man. But he has too many clients and not enough time to listen to each one. I pretty much get in and out of his office in less than 10 min. But I wait in the lobby for over 30 min. He pretty much asks me how last pill he prescribed is working and either continues me on it, or prescribes me another type.

The receptionist is horrible, she doesn't understand the concept of customer service. Despite correcting her several times, she continues to bill the wrong insurance.

I would not recommend this doctor.

My family's experience with Dr. Lam has been wonderful. My son absolutely loves him, and we have tried a couple other child psychiatrists in Austin. He listens, contemplates, and he shares his thoughts on current treatment as well as future expectations.

This doc can be nice, but he has WAY too many clients and does not understand the concept of time management. The worst part of this place is the receptionist, who has been there forever, and will probably never leave. She is rude and unfriendly, and does not know how to properly do her job. You can get in and out of Dr. Lam's office in no time with a prescription for pretty much whatever your little heart desires, but if you need legitimate mental health care, you will get nowhere in this office, you'll just leave with a lot of prescriptions to dope you up.

PROS: NONE
CONS: Receptionist is a nightmare, prescribes too many pills, keeps poor records
