Dr. Lai is a nice doctor but hard to get a hold of. It takes over 30 minutes to schedule an appointment and the office staff and nursing staff are very rude. If you have a question it can take a day or two for a call back. I had to be rushed to the hospital over the weekend because her incompetent staff did not give me an ultrasound as I had asked that evening and ended up having emergency surgery that night. I would not trust my life to her or her staff and never recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Lai delivered both of my boys -- she is hands down one of the best doctors that I have ever been to. I had 2 complicated pregnancies and her bedside manner and vast knowledge and experience enabled me to deliver 2 healthy and happy children. I am eternally grateful to her and to her entire team at the office -- they were incredible from beginning to end!

Dr. Lai is a knowledgeable OBGYN with an incredible bedside manor. I have been seeing doctor Lai as my gynecologist for several years. Recently she performed a polylpectomy in my Uterus. She found the polyp on a Monday and the following Friday she had scheduled me to remove it. She talked me through everything in laymens terms and was so kind. The operation went off sermlessly. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
