He is a member of the American College of Physician Executives and serves on the board of directors for Vincent House in Pinellas Park and Warrick Dunn Charities in Atlanta. With research interests in urban public health, he has been a clinical assistant professor of medicine at the University of South Florida since 2008. 

Dr. Sai is board certified in internal medicine. He received his degree in medicine from the Instituto Superior de Ciencias Médicas de la Habana in Cuba, graduating with honors. He completed his residency in internal medicine at John H. Stroger Hospital of Cook County and Rush University Medical Center of Chicago.
