I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Ayer. He took the time to listen to my issues and explained my options and future procedure and made sure it will be done in a timely manner. His follow up written review went into great detail.

Dr. Ayer is so friendly and easy to talk to. Very unpretentious. He comes across as extremely knowledgeable and skilled. His medical assistant, Diane, is so friendly and easy to talk to as well.

Dr. Ayre and his assistant, Diane, have been absolutely wonderful, medically, professionally, and personally. I've already recommended Dr.A to a friend of mine who had brain surgery over a year ago and has not found ease of pain and needs another doctor's opinion. Dr. A's character and bed-side manner are remarkable.

Dr. Ayer was more than accommodating to my questions took almost an hour to show me my brain and explain his concerns and recommend further explanatory investigation in order to answer his concerns that this could be something to go bad if not dealt with in a timely manner -
