Waited 30 minutes past my appointment time because he was late getting back from lunch. Then Dr. Ayoola tried to talk me into a different procedure saying that I could have a revision if the first surgery didn’t give the results I wanted. Why go through two surgeries?? More money for him is why! His staff was rude and acted like I was an inconvenience to them. One woman who went over my insurance coverage insisted on one requirement I knew was wrong. I had previously spoke with my insurance so I knew better. When I pointed that out, she said she knew her damn job. That was the final straw. I left and chose another doctor and couldn’t be happier.

Dr. Ayoola performed a surgery on my daughter that cost her life. In spite of months of her begging and pleading for his help, she was accused of busting the diet and not taking the vitamins that he sold in his office. Once she went into 100% septic shock, she lost consciousness, he ventilated her, he said she’d only be asleep for a few days, when she didn’t wake up, he admitted in the patient waiting room in a room full of people that he had failed to look in her lower intestine for the knick that he’d made to her lower intestine. One test would have prevented her ultimate death. I also see where this advertisement states no board complaints, not true.

Dr. Ayoola is an incredible doctor. He devotes time to you as a patient and understands the struggle. However... His office staff is lacking in their customer service abilities. They also need to learn when to hustle and how to call people back. The office staff could not tell the difference between left and right every single time I contacted them.

This sharpshooter of a surgeon saved my life. Presurgical communication and discosure of risks vs benefits was excellent. Dr. Ayoola's staff was also first class--involved, responsive and supportive. My case was a tough one, and he saw me through to a level of success I truly did not expect.

Dr. Ayoola was great before and during the surgery. Our frustration is after the surgery. Nobody in his office calls back. Very hard to set up an appointment with him to discuss issues that are going on. It is very frustrating!!!!

My mother was an OR/ER nurse for 43 years so I’m very picky when it comes to doctors. Dr Ayoola is one of the best. He’s truly concerned with his patients care and well being. My initial consultation lasted well over an hour. He took the time to go over everything making sure I was well aware of all the benefits of each type of surgeon inwas looking at. He didn’t seem rushed or distracted and spent the time really listening to me and my questions. I was very impressed and would choose him again

Dr. Ayoola is an incredible surgeon. I am 66 and had the surgery 12/18/2018. My recovery has been very easy and the recommendations his staff made when I was preparing for surgery really contributed to that. I disagree with the reviews that were negative about office staff. Asia and all I interacted with were very supportive! Thank you to them.

Dr. Ayoola is a friendly person. You can tell he wants to help his clients & ensure their safety. However after the experience I had with a member of his staff I don't know if I'll go back. She walked out of the room while I was talking, she had no clue about pricing, I asked what finance company they preferred she told me they didn't have one then I told her I saw it on their website that they did, she said "oh yeah care credit" she got hateful with me when I asked about my insurance benefits.

I didn't get to see the dr so this review is on the office overall. After driving an hour and arriving 15 minutes prior to my appointment , I was still made to wait one hour. The doctor was there & several other patients went in and out. After an hour I walked out. If my time isnt respected , then this isn't the dr for me. There are too many other doctors to choose from to be treated badly. One more thing , I paid $200 cash when I arrived, was given a receipt for only $100. ??

After being in another hospital for 3 weeks I was finally transferred to Medical City Frisco and Dr Ayoola. Four other doctors told me they couldn't help me and wanted to put a feeding tube in me. Dr Ayoola scheduled me for surgery the next day. He repaired the blockage left from the ulcer and in my opinion saved my life. I am now on the road to gaining some of the 30 pounds I lost and am able to enjoy having meals with my family. I love Dr Ayoola and will recommend him whole heartedly.
