Dr. Rayala is my Super Hero! He is the best PCP that I’ve had in many years. He is knowledgeable, thorough, patient, professional, carefully takes the time to answer my questions, and he never rushes. Most of all….HE LISTENS to me and makes me feel that he truly cares about my overall health. He is not a pill pusher. He knows his stuff and the positive results attest to that. I highly recommend Dr. Rayala.

Dr. Rayala is an absolute people person. I can tell he wants to help in any way possible that he can as a health professional. The level of comfort compared to other doctors i have been to is far superior and talking with him is more as a friend opposed to feeling like going to the doctor is a chore. He knows how to connect with his patients and isnt one of those doctors that has their back turned to you while they are on the computer. He pays attention to everything you have to say&cares.

Dr. Rayala is a compassionate doctor. He takes time to listen and he cares about people. He's thorough w/ his work and explains things well. I've only consulted w/ him by phone in past 2 yrs , but I'm sure office visits will be the same experience. He's a wonderful person! I feel very comfortable and confident w/ his care.. treatment recommendations.
