Couldn't ask for a better office. Dr. Lai and Dr. Tonger are wonderful and probably saved my hearing after being incorrectly diagnosed by the other local ENT. The staff was friendly and got me in within 2 days. Will highly recommend !!

Dr. Lai is awesome! Dr. Lai is very gentle with young and old alike, and uses the latest up-to-date procedures and technologies. He monitors your case closely and does not try to schedule appts just to "take your money." If he feels you only need to see your general practitioner, he tells you...more

No pre or post surgical conference, doesn't communicate with his patients or families well. His poor bedside manner and overall lack of availability for emergencies are his Achilles heel.

Only gave one star because I had to give at least that many. This guy is one of the most arrogant jerks I have ever come across. Would NEVER entrust my health to him. Has no concept of how to speak to or deal with people.
