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.

Dr. Ayers is one of the most kind, caring, and reliable physicians I have had the pleasure of being treated by. I highly and without reservation recommend Dr. Ayers to any patient who is suffering and truly wants help. He saved my life, and one of my friends lives as well, and treats patients like human beings, not "just another number" he can bill for. If you truly want help, Dr. Ayers is the doctor who will give you everything he has to improve your quality of life, and potentially save it.

As his pain patient for the last TEN YEARS I can say from firsthand experience that Dr. Ayers and his staff are the most compassionate and caring Doctor and Staff I have EVER seen. As a walking quadriplegic I have seen over 50 doctors in the last 35 years and Dr. Ayers is by far the BEST! Doctor Ayers and his staff will take the time to make sure you are properly treated for chronic pain or addiction. He cannot take insurance and his fees are reasonable. My highest recommendation!

My experience: part of staff extremely rude, Doctor and staff do not return phone calls-whether emergency and or routine. Witnessed staff lying to patients and more focused on the doctor's other business. Doctor may or may not be in on scheduled appointments & is only in the office 2 days / week at best. Definitely better options out there.
