RN on the other side – Nov 13, 2020
I got my minimally invasive bunionectomy done in December by Dr. Lai. I have no more pain, my scars are healing very nicely, and the whole process has been so quick and easy. I attribute all of its success to Dr. Lai. He genuinely cares for his patients and is very knowledgable.

Demi – Aug 11, 2020
Dr. Lai is one of the most professional physicians I have ever met. He is a great listener and is genuinely concerned about my well being. I had been suffering from significant ankle pain for quite some time and after my first visit with Dr. Lai he was able to get to the cause. I am recovering from a recent surgery from Dr. Lai and I am very confident for a pain free future. Thank you for everything Dr. Lai.

Tom Crowe in Galloway, NJ – Dec 12, 2018
I hope this very kind, caring, and thorough young man NEVER ever changes his approach to his patients or practice. We recently moved to the area, and without knowing very many people, it's hard to find new physicians. I had a very positive experience. The young lady at the front desk who checked me in was very welcoming. Dr. Lai was extremely knowledgeable, and took a lot of time explaining my options for treatment.
