Fixed my nose I can breath !
in Eden Prairie, MN |
Dr. Ayre took my tonsils out 5 days ago, and he was the best surgeon I could have asked for. I was extremely nervous going into the procedure (since I'd never had surgery before), and he explained everything to me. He was very straightforward about the healing and didn't try to sugarcoat anything. His bedside manner was knowledgeable but still funny and light-hearted. He's been an excellent ENT for me, and I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone.
