These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

While during my first visit, Dr. Lai seemed somewhat distant, she's been much more approachable since then. She's efficient, knowledgeable, listens to what I say and responds to it appropriately. Nothing is overlooked, and when my insurance company denied a requested procedure, she followed up and made sure it was approved and the test I needed happened. Highly recommend her!
I was recommended to this office. The receptionist was very kind and helpful. She linked me with this Doctor because she was the first available appointment. That is a mistake I WILL NEVER MAKE AGAIN! I had several concerns to be brought to the Doctor. She seemed heartless and uncaring. When she entered the room, she barely introduced herself and did not even offer a handshake! She sent me for several test and did not even offer to follow up with me! I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with how I was treated! I hope no one else allows themselves to be so disresoected by a Doctor who SHOULD be there to offer help and support.
