HE IS A TERRIFIC DOCTOR. TAKES TIME WITH HIS PATIENTS. WAITING IS USUALLY ABOUT 15 MINUTES FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT. KNOWS HIS MEDICAL FIELD VERY WELL. KEEPS YOU INFROMED ON TESTS THAT YOU HAVE AND IF HE FINDS ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES WHAT HE IS TREATING YOU FOR WILL LET YOU KNOW. VERY EXACT ON DIAGNOSIS.

Where do I start, 14 years ago I stepped into Dr.Mayers office a very sick 24 year old, I was depressed & at the end of my rope. I was told by several G.I doctors I had Crohn's Disease, frustrated I got on the internet & come across Dr.Mayer then made an appointment. After a colonoscopy it was discovered I in fact had Ulcerative Colitis which was great news, 13 years later I now have a J pouch doing GREAT & haven't look back since. Thank you Dr.Mayer your diagnoses gave me my life back.
