As a 911 1st responder with COPD, etc, I've worked with several pulmonologists since I moved here a few years ago. Dr Lai is better than the the rest: he's approachable, responsive and, most importantly, I feel much better under his care than I had under the care of any other pulmo. I have NO hesitation is recommending him...he's, simply, the best around.
