Care Philosophy

I am a patient advocate and realize that their families are just as affected as they are by their illnesses, and consequently, feel that involvement of the families in patient care and decision making is paramount to the wellbeing of the patient. My patients are humans first and patients second. I treat them with respect and consideration and take the time to listen to them and respond to their questions. No question in my mind is ever stupid or insignificant. I always try to place myself or a loved one of mine in my patient's place; that allows me to hopefully make the best decision on their behalf. I am warm, caring and honest and that translates to my patient care. I do bring a lot of my patient's problems home, although we are taught to distance yourself from your patient's suffering. It is not ideal but inevitable for me. When a person comes to you and entrusts you with their life and their health problems, it places a tremendous responsibility on you.

My husband is a patient of Dr. Loyola's. I have to say I have never met a doctor so caring about his patients. Dr. Loyola has already performed one surgery on him for the removal of his thyroid due to thyroid cancer and will be doing another surgery in less than two weeks. His bedside manner is amazing and never fails to answer any of our questions. His office staff is also amazing. They return our calls in less than 30 minutes or Dr. Loyola himself will call back.

My 84 year old mother was taken to the ER with severe abdominal pain. Dr L0yola fortunately was on call and took my mom into his care. He did an emergency surgery that same evening removing a portion of her punctured bowel. One week later she is home from the hospital and she is thriving. He saved her life. He has such flair and positive attitude about him, you can't help but to like him immediately. A wonderful surgeon with a personality - it doesn't get any better than this!
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!

Rene Loyola, MD at Treasure Coast Surgical Specialists, was a wonderful recommendation given to my wife Debbie who took me there an operation that certainly prevented a stroke and probably saved my life. Everything was a wonderful experience. Ken Broseman, kenbrosema@comcast.net 5/8/2017

He was wonderful. I was so scared, and he took the time to explain and teach. As an ER nurse I deal with doctors and surgeons all the time. I chose Dr. Loyola. That should tell you all you need to know. When the nurses pick Dr. Loyola, you know he's good!

Didn't have an appointment with this doctor, but hole experience with their on-line system is simply awful. I had to cancel my appointment, but kept getting a text reminder at 2am, waking up. Called the office and talk about it, they promised to take care of it, the text at 2am, kept coming. I thought my (canceled) scheduled appointment supposed to be today and I won't receive it any more, I got my 2am text again "Thanks for coming". Very, very frustrating.

Best doctor in town and he is Trusted by my entire family. Staff is great too. I feel like I'm treated like family when I go see Dr Loyola. Some days I wait to see the doctor but being in the shoes where I was the one he had to leave his office for to come to the hospital to see me, I will never complain now.
