“Health is one of the most important aspects needed to enjoy a great quality of life. But sometimes, medicine can feel complex and scary. My team and I do our best to make the whole process understandable for patients.”

Lai is an osteopath, specializing in family medicine. He’s particularly interested in cardiology, point-of-care ultrasounds (where an ultrasound can help diagnose a problem), ultrasound-guided injections and teaching. He was also a contributing author to an educational textbook on the uses of ultrasounds in primary care.

When he was younger, medicine intrigued him because he enjoyed working with his hands and thinking through complex problems. As he was training to become an emergency room physician, he realized that he really enjoyed developing relationships and getting to know patients. He switched his career track to focus on family medicine.

He earned his medical degree from the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency at the University of South Carolina.

A true adventurer, he enjoys racing cars, skiing, traveling and being outdoors.
