    My daughter who is 14 has had terribly painful, inconsistent cycles since she turned 11. We had a Dr. in LR who wouldn't try to find out why just put us on birth control and changed it up every few months. So, our pediatrician sent us to Dr. Layton. The nurses were so nice and informative and attentive. But, Dr. Layton may as well have snubbed us from the get go, she acted as if we were ignorant and wished to not help us. She did exactly like the Dr we left bc. Then didn't call it in for a week

    Dr. Layton is very compassionate about what she does and is always willing to listen and explain in detail about your medical problems. She sits down to talk with her patients and is not in a hurry to run out of the room while you are still trying to gather your thoughts. She performed my surgery and I completely trust her, and I highly recommend her. Also, she is very knowledgeable in her practice.

    Being a woman, I would expect more sympathy and tenderness from Dr. Layton. But she has no such thing about her. She is rough and impersonal. She speaks to her patients like they are children and she does not listen to her patients or address the issues they ask about. If you want an OBGYN who will be supportive with your health and your pregnancy, steer clear of this physician.

    I had to build up a lot of courage to address a doctor about some embarrassing issues. I told Dr. Layton I thought I had a hormonal problem. She laughed and asked in a patronizing tone, "what makes you think you have a hormonal problem?". Stinging with anger and embarrassment, I proceeded to tell her about my symptoms. She gave me no diagnosis- though I was later diagnosed with PCOS by a different Doc- and pushed some new antidepressants on me. She was terribly insensitive.
