Specialties

Dr. Minhtruong T Lai has the following 2 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

Highly recommend, Excellent Doctor

My experiences with Dr. Lai's office staff and his colleagues have always been good. I am treated with consideration and both the doctors and the staff always go out of their way to make me as comfortable as possible. Dr. Lai is a very bright doctor; even with my condition being relatively complicated, he makes me feel comfortable and confident that he doing whatever necessary to understand my symptoms and ultimately diagnose and treat the cause. After many years of many complicated health issues, doctors do not gain my trust easily, and there are only a few that I do recommend so strongly. Dr. Lai is most certainly one of the few.

Very bright doctor, kind bedside manner

Dr. Lai is a very bright young pulmonologist/critical care doc. He does not shy away from or belittle any problem, and I have always felt very comfortable with his treatment plans; I have come to trust his decisions completely. He always listens completely to my concerns and answers any questions that I have.
