Dr. Ayala is fine. His office staff, not so much. No communication with each other or the patients. They’ll give you the run around and lie about what you’ll have to pay. Then they won’t call you back for over a week. None of them apparently talk to each other and it’s a pure headache trying to get any answers. Just don’t do it.

Excellent in all areas. Dr Ayala was wonderful and excellent.

Provided info on procedure and possible results. More than I have obtained from other Drs in my 70 years of experience with them. Procedure was fast, results painless (used Tylenol only once, by third day I was doing my exercises and daily activities without any problems
in McAllen, TX |
After my post surgery, I am very well pleased with the results that I have so far. The process has been smoothly and did not have any complications as I would have thought because my procedure was definitely significant with years of having a broken nose that the bone was calcified that it took a lot longer to straighten but doctor Ayala made it possible. Thank you to doctor Ayala and his wonderful staff that have been very kind and sweet during this time.
