My favorite doctor! My entire family (kids to grandparents) sees Dr. Lai. Incredibly knowledgeable with impeccable bedside manners. I recommend him to everyone who needs to see a retina specialist.

Dr. Lai is always extremely polite, professional and willing to answer questions re. an eye exam. He provides information on the good and bad and informs you of options and other procedures in the event they are needed.

Dr. Lai is pleasant, gentlemanly, patient ( I am a chronic pain patient, and therefore difficult to treat) and a truly superior doctor. I am so very lucky to know him. Thnk you, dear Dr. Lai! .

Dr. Lai has successfully treated my eye to control macular edema resulting from radiation treatment since 2012. I go to the Retinal Group of Washington for this treatment. I'm extremely pleased with Dr. Lai's professionalism, obvious knowledge and expertise, and his ability to take the time and effort necessary to communicate complicated medical information in terms I can understand. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Lai to anyone seeking medical advice and care for his/her eyes.

Dr. Lai and the staff are all outstanding.

Dec 30, 2020
How does one doctor have time to do so much and receive awards for excellence and still have time to keep my AMD under control? Having one's eye stuck with a needle is never fun, but if it has to be done Dr. Lai is the person to do it!

Dec 30, 2020
Entire experience has been great. Dr Lai is terrific! Thanks.

Excellent enthusiastic staff

Dec 29, 2020
I consider Dr. Lai a friend. He's gentle and caring in one of the least agreeable medical procedures I undergo. Above all, his great competence is shown with his demonstration of the left eye's retina's loss being held and his efforts to strengthen the right eye.

Very Professional.

Dr. Lai was upbeat and his explanations of the surgery were very clear.

Dr. Lai treated me a few years ago for a retinal vein occlusion. The treatment was a success and today there is no trace of any problem. Not only is Dr. Lai one of the top specialists in his field, he is the kindest, most caring doctor I have ever met. I feel so fortunate to have found him.

Dr. Lai is a paradigm example of a total package doctor. Visibly a master of his medical field, he also is highly personable and has superb patient interaction skills. Altogether, he quickly instills confidence that one will be receiving consistent, topnotch medical care. His physician’s mold should be cloned.
