Medical Specialties

ReNovi offers best practices from both fields of Family Medicine and Integrative Medicine.  This benefits patients when choosing from a wide array of tools to diagnose and treat health conditions.



Both of our clinicians are board certified in Family Medicine. They each have more than 25 years of experience caring for patients from “newborn” to “golden years.” Dr. Lai also trains young family medicine physicians as part of her academic affiliation with residency programs.

The essence of family medicine is treating a patient in the context of the family he/she/they are from. Learning to recognize risk factors from family history. Discerning patterns of stressors as well as life circumstances that make a person resilient toward stressors. We love the Family Medicine aspect of our office, and enjoy seeing how a patient’s improvement adds to the joy of his/her/their family members. We also understand the sacred responsibility of the “physician-patient” relationship, where not every diagnosis is derived from lab results, but born out of a doctor’s intuition based on personal relationship.

For adults, we take care of men’s health, primary care women’s health, physicals, contraception, knee & shoulder injections, skin biopsies, EKGs, toenail removals, cyst removals etc. Of course, we encounter infections, colds, eating disorders, well child exams, sports injuries etc.


“Integrative Medicine, when done right, is like detective work that considers each person’s genetic makeup, biochemistry, habits and interests, and living environment, in order to better understand the mystery of what makes that person well.”     (quote from Dr. Lai).

Certain services are more pertinent to the practice of integrative medicine. These include testing for enzymes, micronutrient, and hormonal deficiencies. Chronic disesae risk assessment and treatment using Functional Medicine approach. Nutritional and lifestyle change. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, non-hormonal interventions for menopause, detoxification.

Both Dr. Lai and Mary Strubhar-Brown FNP have had significant training in functional medicine and integrative holistic medicine.  

Our physician also does medical acupuncture for certain health problems on a select, case-by-case basis. Medical acupuncture refers to the use of acupuncture by trained physicians already well-versed in Western medicine, and uses acupuncture to facilitate healing and therapeutic effects, often in conjunction with existing treatment plans.  Patients seeking help with healthy weight loss can benefit from observing how their body composition changes over time. We use Bio-Impedance Spectroscopy as a low-cost, non-invasive tool to help guide the treatment plan for the doctor and her patients.


Functional Medicine is a recognized field in modern medicine.  It relies on the principles of epigenetic, and uses an expanded toolset to diagnose and treat the underlying issues that cause your illness and discomfort.

Services we offer

Integrative Medicine and Functional Medicine are fundamentally more involved in terms of their comprehensive and holistic approach. To investigate the underlying root causes of your illness often relies on gleaning insight from larger panel of lab tests and diagnostic process. This detective work is complex and on-going, often resulting in extra resources spent by the medical office, not just during your medical visits, but before and afterwards.

a well-rounded setup to support your health journey
