Retina Group of Washington The entire office experience is just first-rate office--a smooth and professionally staffed examination process moves along even before one sees Dr. Lai. Then with Dr. Lai --an expert who never rushes his patients but rather takes the time needed to fully explain the results of an eye exam, beginning with reviewing one's eye health history and then proceeding to provide a thorough explanation of current status and any likely eye heath trends.
