I have had a Kidney Transplant@ UCLA, Back Surgery@UCSF, Hernia Repair UCLA, Dialysis Cath UCLA and had been told don't do any surgery in Vegas when I moved here 3 years ago..... I had a Hernia Repair done at the end of August 2017 with Dr. Kevin Rayls..... Very professional and gets the job done with no non sense... I would not hesitate using him again for any other general surgery's in the future. He had come recommended to me by Dr. Kristian Kinell and a friend of mine who is a ICU Nurse.

I am fortunate to have numerous options when selecting a physician/surgeon. Thus, I considered going UCLA, Stanford or Baptist Hospital in Houston with their remarkable surgeon staffs. Instead I selected Dr. Rayls and Southern Hills Hospital for my procedure - I was not disappointed - his professionalism, knowledge,education, and practice history were all excellent; and, his performance was a true measure of his credits. I cannot recommend him more strongly.

Dr. Rayls and staff (Jessica) are the greatest. Dr. Rayls is laid back and willing to talk on a level that is very positive and easy to understand. His office staff (Jessica) tends to pre-op and post-op details with speed and efficiency. She went to bat for me by repeatedly contacting my family doctor for records when there was a slight delay in obtaining the proper clearance for my surgery. Due to her diligence my surgery was performed as scheduled.

After being directed to the exam room, Dr. Rayls entered within 5 minutes, which so surprised me as I was expecting to wait at least 15 minutes. He was gracious and his demeanor was pleasant, he sat down was not in a rush, made me feel like I was very important. After looking at the thumb (cyst-like bump) he thoroughly explained what options were available. I would highly recommend Dr. Rayls and would trust him to operate on me if needed.

Dr. Rayls is incredible!! He takes his time with you, explains everything, is kind and caring and an outstanding surgeon. He makes you feel like he really cares about you and you know that your surgery experience with him will be excellent and successful. He is warm, outgoing and has an unbelievable bed side manner. Dr. Rayls is a role model of how all doctors should be with their patients.!!

He's amazing! I love him! He cut out my breast cancer with minimal scaring. I totally recommend him for any surgery! Great bedside manners! You're in great hands... ?
in Las Vegas, NV |
He answered all my questions and was very patient with me. He performed a hernia surgery and I am happy that I had the surgery. He was recommended to me by a friend and I will certainly recommend him to others.

Dr. Rayls has been my surgeon twice both in life threatening situations. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon or receive better care. He was informative, thorough and has a terrific bedside manner. I would recommend him highly .
in Las Vegas, NV |
This was the first sugary that I ever had and I have a fear of things like that and he made everything very easy and made me feel confident in the process. That and he is totally chill.
in Las Vegas, NV |
WOW! Dr. Rayls has worked on this old body several times. He makes me feel like I am his most important patient. He is an outstanding surgeon who believes patient care and satisfaction is most important. Thank you so much Dr. Rayls. Nancy and I appreciate you more then words can express.
in Henderson, NV |
Dr. Rayls has been my surgeon through two different breast cancers in the past 13 years and two other surgeries with NO COMPLICATIONS of any kind. He is recognized by other physicians that I see as being an OUTSTANDING SURGEON.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I was fortunate to have Dr.Rayls perform my Colon surgery and 8 months later hernia repair surgery. Both surgery's went smoothly and I recovered [without a problem] in due time. I would have no reservations recommending Dr.Rayls.
