I was with Ayasso for 2 years while in grad school in Pittsburgh. I do not recommend him. He never created the time to understand my condition on a personal level and provide the customized treatment I deserved. I had to initiate all of the follow ups and he never monitored my progress on Entyvio.

Dr. Ayasso is the best. I have been going to him since I was 42 and I am now 49. He removed a cancerous colon polyp for me, and I won't go anywhere else. He and his staff are so caring, and they listen to your concerns. I am now cancer free, and am down to going every two years for monitoring. Colonoscopies are very easy there. You don't even know they are being done. I would highly recommend.
