Dr. Lai is dual-board certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine. She has been a family medicine physician for more than 15 years, caring for patients from "newborn" to "golden years." She also trains young family medicine physicians as part of her academic affiliation with residency programs.
The essence of family medicine is treating a patient in the context of the family he/she is from. Learning to recognize risk factors from family history. Discerning patterns of stressors as well as life circumstances that make a person resilient toward stressors. We love the Family Medicine aspect of our office, and enjoy seeing how a patient's improvement adds to the joy of his/her family members. We also understand the sacred responsibility of the "physician-patient" relationship, where not every diagnosis is derived from lab results, but born out of a doctor's intuition based on personal relationship.
For adults, we take care of men's health, primary care women's health, physicals, contraception, knee & shoulder injections, skin biopsies, EKGs, toenail removals, cyst removals etc. Of course, we encounter infections, colds, eating disorders, well child exams, sports injuries etc.
