What People Say About Dr. Douglas Ayres, MD

I am 61, and just finished with my second hip replacement. Dr. Ayres and his team are fantastic. Before each surgery I was barely able to move without pain.Now moving pain free and feeling great. He is the last of the truely great gentleman surgeons left. His professionalism and his expertise are outstanding. I could not imagine going to another doctor. As far as I'm concerned, he saved my life (quality of living) and I'm so grateful for all he did.I recommend Dr Ayres 100 percent.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ayres for ten years. I have had multiple bilateral hip revisions. He did great work which exceeded my expectations considering the condition 9f the hips I presented with.

I researched surgeons in three cities and chose Dr. Ayres for two knee replacements because of a difficult orthopedic condition since birth. I highly recommend him as a surgeon. My results have been good.
