Dr Gaylis was my surgeon when I had a growth removed from my thyroid last February. He was very competent and professional. Best of all, the scar is barely noticeable on my neck 5 months later. I recommend him highly. Dr Elise Curry

Dr. Gaylis is a man of few words but he explained all situations and surgery details for removal of a tumor in my salivary gland very well. I found him to be warm and caring. His suture work is beautiful and I expect no scarring. Very pleased with the outcome of my medical procedure.

I didn't have a voice for over two months and he told me it was all in my head and there was nothing medically wrong with me.

Surgery was more extensive than planned. I thought that was ok until I read the surgical report where he started with areas which were not planned and then worked on the planned areas. Was it more $ he wanted, arrogance, or incompetence? Never again.
