Horrible dr. I went to the doctor for dizzy spells. The prescription that this doctor prescribed me cause additional dizzy spells and cause me to fall off my bed backwards. I did not feel like myself for weeks even after stopping this medication.

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.
