I had my right knee replaced in June 2024. Dr. Ayers and his team are highly professional and did a FANTASTIC job from incision to suture and everything in between.

Review for Dr. Ayers

doesn’t listen as well as she should, ignores messages(other dr’s do in SSMED as well..), kind of robotic in the way she explains things, withholds med refills until you make future appointments with her. i am done with SSM and just made an appt with a new dr in another town.
