What People Say About Dr. Walid El Ayass, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. El Ayass supervised my chemo treatment for endometrial cancer. He came highly recommended, and he met those expectations. He is thorough, and detail-oriented. When I had a concern about the nursing protocols he asked the head nurse to speak to me right away. He does not beat around the bush with difficult information, but he is caring and compassionate. I would not want to see anyone else - I feel I am in excellent hands under his care and he will not miss a thing. He is an excellent doctor.

Highly knowledgable & compassionate doctor. Great bed side manners. Straight to the point & explains to patients about their disease & give them a copy of guidelines to support his clinical judgement. High self confidence & very humble at the same time. Absolutely my favorite physician

Arrogant. Poor patient-doctor interaction. Calls go to voice mail far too often. Does not give clear written instructions. Seems preoccupied and speaks more to his assistant than the patient. Channels of communication are not clear. Seemed to be in a hurry. Appointment process is unfriendly. Needs improvement in communication with patient. Horrible experience.
