Prompt, your time is just as valuable as his time, I appreciated that. He listens and he really hears you, he answers your questions and addresses your concerns. He doesn't make unnecessary appoints. He gets your input about your health and your feelings. I love this man.

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.
