Patient Comments (1)

My town in NH is very low on staff with MD's. Dr. LAI is here for a few months. Smart, thorough, investigative, and explains things as a teacher. You can see his deep thought process as you speak to him. Explains things to you as though you are his student. Wish he was my regular Doctor.
