Doctor Loyalka spends ample time with patient and listens very patiently. In conditions where patient is unable to explain well he fills in from friends, family and past history or nurses to know what is happening with patient. I like one thing the most that he relies on instincts in addition to technology to safeguard patient's interests.

I have been seeing him since 2009 and I live in TYLER. I refuse to give him up. I believe I probably would have been dead if not him. God is good and I thank him for Dr. Loyalka.
