If your looking for a demeaning and condescending doctor then look no further. After two back to back concussions I had the unfortunate luck of needing to be seen by an eye doctor. Dr. Ayyala walked into the room and never introduced himself or the residents he was with but began putting drops in my eye. He never looked at my chart to even see the reason why the concussion program sent me to him. The whole appointment was so terrible that I asked to leave because he was verbally inappropriate.
