Dr Ayala is without a doubt the the best ENT Dr. in the area. Everything from the consultation to the surgery and recovery was terrific. The office setting and short wait times make visits well worth the drive. Kind and courteous staff is very attentive and makes sure to follow through on all concerns. Dr. Ayala is highly motivated and truly cares about his patients. The best decision in my life was going to him. I can finally breathe again!! Couldn't be happier with the end result cosmetically and functionally. To top it off, Dr. Ayala is a well decorated military veteran!! You will not regret going to him. His experiences in the field have given him advantages that other surgeons do not have. My nose had lots of trauma and he completely reconstructed it. Unbelievable results!! 5/5!!

Dr. Ayala and his office is very professional. The experience was great. I came to him with the concern of the wrong fillers being applied to my nose and lips. After my consultation with him I feel a lot better and informed. I would really recommend coming to Dr. Ayala!
