I met Dr. Ayala and she was very thorough. I had bloodwork done. She explained the results in detail. She provided a diagnosis and prescribed medication that eliminates the inflammation I was going through. I recommend her if you’re looking for a rheumatologist.

Best rheumatologist hands down, cannot say enough good about her. I have seen many other drs who seem to not care about my pain and many illnesses and make you feel like its in your head. Dr ayala truley cares, listens and has compassion for her patients. As she no longer takes my insurance it is well worth paying out of pocket to see her. I will never see another dr again as long as she is still in practice. She will try everything she can to help you as much as possible. Love love dr Ayala!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Ayala for a number of years. She is very thorough, kind , and compassionate. She truly cares about her patients. In a day when doctors often don't take time to listen to their patients, Dr. Ayala stands out as one who truly listens and takes time with her patients. I never feel rushed. I can ask her anything and not feel "stupid" doing so. Beyond all of this, Dr. Ayala is a woman of faith in God, for which I hold her in very high regard. 5+++ stars for her!!

Have been berated by staff because insurance has not paid, I was told that I wasn't trying to resolve it! Didn't get my infusion scheduled and NP wouldn't give reason, so missing that dose and dealing with stress and multiple other health issues has caused diseases to flare. I used to highly recommend this MD, but won't be returning. My disease is as bad as before diagnosis 15 years ago, but nobody cares. My husband and I can't get ins companies to resolve and we have no money so I become sicker

The Office Staff for this doctor are awful. My husband was referred to this doctor by his Doctors Office, They faxed over paperwork twice. I spent 20 mins on the phone back and forth with this Office until they received the paperwork. A week later we called back to see what was taking so long for an appt. and the staff said they never received the paperwork. Then they looked it up in their system and they found it. When asked for an appt. they said they were booked till March.

Have recommended to many people. Very compassionate. The staff at the front desk are not the most professional but Dr. Ayala is well worth putting up with a little rudeness at the front desk and when calling in to ask questions.

I moved to San Antonio & saw another rheumatologist who didn't seem interested in my care. Dr. Ayala is a breath of fresh air and her smile is comforting. I am a retired nurse of 40-years and have seen it all. Dr Ayala is professional, knowledgeable, cautious and explained her plan of care. I trust her and would recommend Dr. Ayala without hesitation.

I've seen quite a few Rheumatologists and Dr. Ayala is hands-down THE most compassionate and caring! During our first appointment, she sat down with me and really discussed the nature of my condition and took the time to really listen to all my symptoms. It's been two years of struggling to find out what's going on, but I have confidence that I have finally found the doctor who will figure it out.

Following on a recommendation from PC doctor, I went to see Dr. Ayala as RA genes run in the family. Thankfully, all test came back negative. Dr. Ayala's second opinion was very detailed. She even informed about another procedure which was not even mentioned by two other specialists. She is sweet, well-spoken, always has a big smile, and great charisma. I wish she could be my PC doctor, but it won't happen as she is a rheumatologist instead.
