Laboratory Research

Licensed in the State of:

I brought my Uncle to Dr Ayres. He was very thorough in discussing things with us together and then testing my uncle. He took input from both of us and was very respectful. He seems far more capable than the other doctors my uncle has seen both here and in Ohio.

I was very impressed with Dr. Ayers. He listened carefully to what I had to say about my symptoms and responded professionally and appropriately. He was very thorough in his examination. He took the time to explain his findings even to the point of drawing diagrams. He did extensive testing and I never felt like he was rushing through my appointment. He was very professional and knowledgeable in his area of expertise. He followed up my visit with an extensive written report. I would highly recommend him.
