Many of Lai’s staff members have been with him for years and his patients consistently are impressed with their courtesy, professionalism, how easy it is to make an appointment and a minimal wait time to see the doctor.
They also give Dr. Lai high marks for his bedside manner and his efforts in making patients interactive participants in their own treatment plans.
“Being in family practice, it is important to keep up with annual screenings,” Lai said. “Also, updates from insurers help us monitor patients. Regular follow-up appointments and lab work are essential.”
