Christine Lai, MD is the best I ever had.
Nice women but she is Retiring in Dec.2017, it was my first appointment.
Dr. Christine Lai was fantastic! She was incredibly knowledgeable, but more importantly, she made me feel comfortable, welcome and in good hands. She took her time to answer all of my questions thoroughly and in terms I could understand. She's very smart and judgment free - she listened carefully and provided wonderful insight to all my areas of concern while providing helpful solutions when needed. She's a very welcome change to the cold doctors I've seen in the past and I'll definitely make her my regular doctor moving forward!
My first visit was a great experience. I was made to feel very comfortable. Left there feeling well informed. Looking forward to my next visit.
Dr. Lai (pronounced Lie) was great! I saw her at the Mount Sinai facility in Astoria. They're undergoing construction so that experience was a little disorienting. The guy at the front desk when I first walked in didn't even look up and I had to get his attention. He mumbled directions to me and I ended up in the wrong reception area. The woman there was very nice and very helpful and pointed me in the right direction. Once I got to Dr. Lai's office, the receptionist was perfectly cordial. I met with Dr. Lai for a general consultation and to talk about an IUD. She has a great bedside manner, was super upbeat and made me feel much more comfortable about my decision to get an IUD. I'm still very nervous about it but I have confidence that if I decide to move forward with it, I will be in very good hands!
Very nice and a sweet doctor
Wait time was very short. I went in for an annual exam and went into one room where I got my temperature and blood pressure done. Then I talked with Dr Lai in an office for a few minutes before we went in for the breast exam, manual exam and pap smear. She did a quick sonogram to check the location of my IUD and then they took some blood for an STD test. I was out in under ~45 minutes total. Great appointment and staff!
She is so detailed and honest. I feel like I'm with a real human being which is rare and refreshing in the city and western medicine period.
Based on my first appointment, Dr. Lai is the best GYN I have ever been to. She was professional, very kind, and approachable. She made me feel very comfortable during the entire visit. She wasn't rushing; I really felt that she took the time to make sure any concerns I had were addressed in full. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends.
Dr. Lain is amazing! She was kind, personable, attentive and very informative. I felt so comfortable with her. So glad i found a great Gyno. Highly recommend!
Dr. Lai was fantastic! I came in with a lot of questions and she answered them very openly and thoroughly. She was very friendly which put me at ease immediately because I was a new patient and changing doctors for the first time since moving from Long Island. Highly recommend her.
Very sweet and honest. Made me feel very comfortable.
She was very sweet and informative. I found her very easy to talk to and made everything super quick.
Dr. Lai was amazing. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and took the time to ask me questions about my medical history, as well as explored any questions/concerns I had. She was thorough and I didn't feel rushed, which I've experienced with other NYC doctors.
Dr Lai is wonderful!! I've been to so many Drs over the years who don't listen to your concerns and rush through appointments, I'd pretty much given up on ever finding a smart caring listening doctor. Dr Lai is all of the above. I'm so glad I found her and I recommend her highly.
Dr. Lai was finishing up a delivery at the hospital when I arrived, but her staff was great while I waited and made sure I made it to my meeting at work on time. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Lai as she was very knowledgeable and made me feel completely comfortable despite it being my first appointment with her - I will be returning!
Dr. Lai speaks to you as a woman and not just a patient. She is receptive to your concerns and offers great alternatives and/or solutions to what you think were your only options to your health problems. She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed! Highly recommended, have never felt more at ease and reassured at the doctor's.
She was great! Everything was quick and easy!
Dr. Lai was AMAZING! She listened carefully to my questions and gave thoughtful answers. She was very friendly and open. Also the exam was over before I even knew it started, so extra points for speed! I have been to a few OB/GYNs in Astoria over the years and she is by far the best.
Dr Lai was great! Definitely answered all of my questions and was very nice. She had an emergency that morning with a patient which is why she was late, but I'll definitely be seeing her again!
Staff and doctor are awesome. They make you feel comfortable and welcome.
She's wonderful! Direct and funny. I highly recommend
Long wait, and it is very hard to get in touch with the doctor again. I tried to call to ask about some test results but never received a call back. She did reply to the message I left online, however it was after 1 week.
Dr. Lai was friendly and informative, took the time to listen to my thoughts/concerns and discuss them thoroughly, did not feel rushed. I would see this provider again and would recommend her as well!
She is so sweet i highly recommend her to anybody i loved how explainable she was and so polite i give her a 100!!!??
Dr. Lai was very friendly and professional! She made me feel very comfortable and relax during my visit. I would highly recommend anyone who dread going to gyn annually to come here, she was quick and informative! Love my visit. So glad i found my to go gyn for the future!
Dr Lai was amazing! Very informative, patient and warm. . Best obgyn doctor experience I have had.
Dr. Lai was really amazing! I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She's knowledgeable and patient. Of course that is different from dealing with the hospital system itself.
Excellent doctor. This is my first pregnancy and I wanted to find a doctor who would take their time and make me feel comfortable and knowledgeable about what I should expect, dos and don'ts etc. Dr. Lai was not only attentive but she made me feel comfortable and she took her time to answer any questions I had. Highly recommend
Went for my appointment on Tuesday, she put in an order for an ultrasound but the radiology department couldn't fit me. Went back Wednesday morning and she saw me right after to go over the results even though she doesn't normally see patients on Wednesday. Very accommodating for my schedule and visit needs.
Dr. Christine was very friendly and understanding and made me immediately feel safe and taken care of!
Great doctor, very personable. She took the time to hear about my history and concerns then offered counsel. This took place in her office before the exam, which to me demonstrates that she has respect for her patients (nobody wants to sit and have a long chat in a hospital gown).
Best doctor ever. Doctor was very nice to us, very professional and she knows so much about pregnancy. We are so happy to have her during this pregnancy.
I left my appointment, feeling great and comfortable having Dr. Christine Lai. She answers all your questions and you really feel like you can leave your health care in her hands. I Totally Recommended Her!
I'm so happy to of found her on Zoc doc. She was so helpful with all my questions and explained everything with me! Even the women who set me up in the room and prepped me were so very sweet. Everyone made me very comfortable. I high recommend this office.
Dr. Lai's assistant was especially kind and helpful!
