Over the past 3 years Dr. Ayyar has operated on me and my wife. My surgery was relatively routine. My wife’s surgery was an emergency. Without going into great detail I can assure you he saved her life. She had multiple doctors working on her for several weeks but Dr. Ayyar was in charge of the situation. His actions during her hospital stay were right on the mark every time. He is a wonderful man and a talented surgeon. He is one of the best.

I had only 1 visit before my surgery. They should have gotten my test results 2 weeks prior. Instead, they have me call the facility for my results while I have only a gown & IV on, waiting for my surgery. Then they misplaced my CAT scan CD so Dr. Ayyar didn't even know where my tumor was. His asst. came in my hospital room the day after surgery to tell me I'm fat & need to watch what I eat. No one called afterward to see if I was OK. Just 1 call to reschedule my followup for the 3rd time.
