In February of 2019, my mother had a perforated colon from diverticulitis that she had been dealing with for some time. She was becoming septic and had been deteriorating slowly for a few months. After a 6 hour surgery, my mom had an amazing recovery without any complications. She saved her life.

I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Dayal. She operated on me at Pascack Valley Hospital, an affiliate of Hackensack Meridian, in 2013 for a blockage in my intestines. She also saw me in 2015 &2018. Not only is she an incredible surgeon, but she truly cares about her patients. She would stop by and check up on me after working a long shift at HUMC before going home to her family, because that's just the kind of person she is. I would never hesitate to recommend her for surgery. This is the first time I've ever given any doctor a 5 star rating, but I would give her higher if I could!

Dr. Dayal saved my life. She is an amazing doctor, very knowledgeable and very caring. Four years later, she still does follow ups with me and I have never met a doctor before who is as wonderful as she is.

She works in the emergency room, and she does not take blue cross blue shield health insurance. How can you work in the emergency room and not take the largest insurance company? She saw me for 10 minutes and billing me for $4,500. Many complaint on her trying to over charge patients. BAD DOCTER

Dr. Dayal is simply the best. She performed an emergency trauma surgery on my husband after he almost died at another hospital and saved his life. Her follow up care was impeccable. She is intelligent, kind and a top surgeon. I would give her 100 stars.
