Patient Comments (2)
DO NOT GO HERE! Dr Kayal’s blatant arrogance clouded his judgement on two occasions while making medical decisions during the course of my treatment for a chronic condition. Twice he told me my symptoms were all healed and I didn’t need surgery. After literally begging him to bring me in the OR, TWICE he found a recurrence of my symptoms and had to treat them with surgery after telling me I was initially okay. He is arrogant, completely lacks emotional intelligence and thinks he knows everything
