Dr. Ayers is outstanding. Colonoscopy are a breeze with Dr. Ayers. Professional, thorough, knowledgeable, and extremely caring. I wish she was my Primary Physician. Thanks Dr. Ayers! I travel all the way from Wallingford to see this outstanding Physician.

I was having problems going to the bathroom and then i started to bleed from my rectum. I made an appointment with Dr. Ayers. She was super supportive, extremely thorough and she discovered that my pelvic floor had collapsed. I had surgery (trans-vaginal mesh rectocele) in March of 2018. My experience was excellent. Dr. Ayers was super kind, very understanding and she is very smart and knows her stuff.

On Nov 25th, Dr.Ayers performed a colon resection. She and her team did a fantastic Job and as of this review I am pretty much healed. Dr. Ayers attention to detail is second to none and always keeps you well informed. I would highly recomend her group if you are looking for a Colon/Rectal surgeon.

I saw Dr. Ayers for my colonoscopy 6yrs ago. She was friendly and made me feel so at ease. I went to her because she was the rare female in this field at the time. Now, I would recommend her to everyone who is the least bit afraid of the procedure. Her staff was also "tops".

I met with Dr. Ayers to follow up on an external hemroid I have. I waited about 20 minutes before I was seen by her which I didn't mind as I know doctors have busy schedules. The thing that bothered me about this doctor was that she continuously looked at her watch as if I was taking up too much of her time. She was also a bit condescending and rude which made me feel unsafe. She did not seem to care about the issues I have been having. I will not be meeting with her again. Poor service.

I have had the same problem for years; its been debilitating...all the specialists basically dismissed me. I am not a doctor shopper. I was at the end of my rope until my new gyn said that I had a real problem and referred me to Dr. Ayers. She listened to me, read my other tests and started me on a round of medication.. Am keeping my fingers crossed.
