Dr. Layman performed a somewhat complicated laparoscopic lymph node biopsy on me. He was kind, efficient and thorough and listened to all of my questions and concerns. I have minimal scarring. I would recommend Dr. Layman whole-heartedly for any surgical procedure.

I love Dr Laymen, he surgically removed a endometrial tumor that had grown through my abdominal & oblique muscle. He removed enough of the muscles to get clear pathology margins. Dr Laymen is wonderful and I can’t quite express how thankful I am to have found such a remarkable doctor. He coloborated with my oncologist immediately after my surgery. I highly recommend Dr Laymen if your in need of a surgeon that specializes in removal of cancer. Thank you Dr Laymen!!????

He managed to get stones trapped in the duct out laproscopically and saved me from a bigger surgery. He has great bedside manner. His staff is helpful and timely with scheduling.
