I had my choice of doctors but am going out of my insurance plan just to see Dr. Alai. My psoriasis has NEVER looked so clear and I do not know what I would do otherwise without Dr. Alai and the staff. . I was seeing a couple of other dermatologists who were treating me with injections and nothing worked. My skin was getting worse and I was in terrible pain 24/7. I stopped all of those drugs and opted for a holistic light therapy which I go in for about twice a week. Everything is almost clear!
Very very thorough and a great doctor. I would recommend to others for 2nd opinions and getting to the bottom of the problem- pretty much all difficult rashes end here!

I transferred from Westlake and had pretty good doctors there but I couldn't believe the skin cancers they missed on me just weeks before I moved to Laguna . I am so so grateful for my guru- Dr. Alai found 2 skin cancers no one else found. She sent me to a plastic surgeon for one because I was so worried about one being on my nose but he said it looked fine! It turned out to be a basal cell anyway-

Dr Alai was friendly, knowledgeable, instructive, and precautionary. She listened to my concern and decided to perform a mild first therapy. She gave me two kids of sun-blocking hats to wear as well as plenty of samples of sun screen cream. Post therapy, my face was red for only two days. The oil on my skin was significantly decreas

I am very grateful for all of Dr Alai's help. She gave me great recommendations. My father was ill and I was moving out of state and I plan to follow Dr. Alai's recommendations once I settle in Georgia. Dr. Alai is an excellent doctor. I hope I can find someone like her in Georgia.

Dr. Alai is incredible . . . I had a severe fifty cent size rash which ended in a burning, itching left arm. It felt like bees were stinging me. It had been going on for several months and I saw several(8)+doctors who were unable to help. I found Dr. Alai on-line and got an appointment. She correctly diagnosed the condition as coming from my neck which affected all the nerve endings in my arm, and I am now being treated by a physical therapist with neck traction and a TENS/Emp. Honestly, the bes
