Step 3: Travel & Hospitality
Step 3: Travel & Hospitality
As a large part of Dr. Lam’s patients fly in for his services, he believes that it is very important to make the process of coming to Dallas as easy as possible. Along those lines, he has created a custom-built hospitality kit to guide with every facet of your travel plans. He hopes that this labor of love will help you in your decision and process to come to Plano, Texas. Dr. Lam would also like to thank Linda, his assistant, for the many months of research and preparation that she made for this project.

Transportation: Flying In & Getting to Your Hotel or Our Office You will fly into the DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) airport in most cases. The smaller regional airport Love Field Airport may also be a destination for some travelers. Without traffic, we are located about 25 to 30 minutes away from both airports. American Airlines is headquartered at DFW and may be the most convenient airline to fly directly into Dallas in many cases.
You can get to our office or your hotel using one of several methods: 1) a rental car agency from the airport, 2) our concierge (for availability, contact[email protected] or her cell 214-674-7324), 3) taxi (for Executive Taxi, contact Kenny at 214-415-8596), or 4) limousine service (for Superior One, contact 972-490-0581).

After Care Nursing or Companion Services
Dr. Lam’s office can help coordinate companion and nursing services for you at an extra rate, as needed. Dr. Lam’s nursing staff will discuss with you what services you would require based on your procedure but would not be necessary if a companion would already be traveling with you. After discussing with Dr. Lam’s nursing staff what your requirements would be, Dr. Lam’s office will then coordinate those services for you.
