Dr. Lai pretty much saved my husband's life. He has early onset Parkinson's. After seeing different neurologists over many years, Dr. Lai was the first one to get his medications under control and ended up recommending my hisband for DBS surgery. He is very patient with my husband who can be difficult regarding treatment. So thankful for him.

I would not recommend anyone to Dr. Lai. I called for an appointment. The receptionist was rude and would not let me speak with the physician that he doesn't speak with patients. Why would one go to him if he doesn't speak with a patient.
