Dr Lai is a wonderful caring doctor. His office is full of people waiting to see him and I for one will wait for him because I am confident of his knowledge. He is always ready and willing to listen no matter how long it takes. I highly recommend him for any issues pertaining to his profession.

Dr. Lai is fantastic. My Dad has been seeing him for several years. I really love that he has called my Dad at home after hours to follow up on labs and results more than once. I wish all Doctors were like Dr. Lai!
