Dr. Lai is a wonderful caring doctor. He diagnosed a sebaceous carcinoma on my upper eye lid and spent over an hour on the phone the night he got the biopsy report back. During that time he talked to all my doctors and arraigned time and place for the mohs surgery and the hospital time and everything for the reconstructive surgery to all be done on the same day. The surgery was done 10 days later and after having over half my upper eye lid removed the scar is nat even noticeable. I would highly recommend him to everyone I know.
