Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I won’t return !
The Doctor didn’t mention a diagnosis at all that he put on my paperwork . Horrible wait times absolutely unacceptable ! I finally decided I had had enough on my last visit and decided to find a new doctor ! Dysfunctional staff ! My insurance company would not approve several blood test orders later to find out the Drs office had put the wrong billing codes on my orders ! They sent me on a 40 mile round trip across town to have a CT scan at their facilities location when it could’ve been done close to where I live ! Enough is enough a 100% way to frustrating experience with this place !

I wasn’t interview about my symptoms. Office notes detailed exam that wasn’t performed. Dr sarcastically suggested I was there after “you googled it so came in”.

I had not seen Dr. Ayala for over six years and was happy to be back with him. He is always very compassionate, polite, and knowledgeable. I trust him and feel like I am in good hands with him.

Dr. Gonzalez-Ayala was very personable during his examination and consultation with me, and he took the time to take a very detailed health history on me, and to explain his review of my CT scans.
