Great, caring doctor. Not the kind of doctor that prescribes medicines just to make the parents feel they are doing something. My son had many problems when he was younger, and took him to several Pediatricians until we met Dr Tai. Then, we didn't need to look any longer as the problems began to be taken care of. Highly recommend
