Dr. Ayala led the team who took care of my daughter after suffering two tonic clonic seizures. She was under their care for 3-4 days while visiting me in Tallahassee. Dr. Ayala's team performed detailed CT scans, x-rays and MRI's and found the cause in a short period of time which was a tumor in her brain. His team worked wonderfully with my daughter and us and offered everything in terms of future plans for help before she went back to her home in another state. This team is very caring!

I have had to consult pediatric neurology with 2 of my 3 children. The first was just a consult and found to not be a neurological issue, however, the time, care and compassion that he took with my daughter and myself was above and beyond the call of duty. Even though we were sent to a different specialist for her care, I felt that Dr. Ayala would have done anything to assist me in her further care that he possibly could have. He cares deeply for his patients and is compassionate!
