The restaurant was a great success and was televised on The Food Channel and Local Newspapers.
In 1997, Dr. Lai became interested in the IT industry and decided to sell his restaurant and pursue a Master Degree in IT with multiple certifications. He worked in the IT industry until he started Medical School in 2003, and graduated from Saint Matthews University School of Medicine in 2007.
Dr. Lai was trained in General Psychiatry at Brookdale University Medical Center in NYC and Larkin Community Hospital in Florida 2010-2012. He also did a Fellowship in Child/Adolescent Psychiatry at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.

He is an expert in psychopharmacology and is trained in TMS and ECT. Dr. Lai is a versatile psychotherapist, has practiced telemedicine, and a Certified Suboxone Prescriber.
Dr. Lai believes that psychiatry is more than just a science of medicine. Psychiatry is an art of medicine. Dr. Lai’s patients often gave Dr. Lai excellent evaluations.
