What our patients are saying

He was very caring from the beginning and reassured us that our son would be getting the best care possible. Dr. Ayres is very knowledgeable and we have no doubt that it is because of him that our son is doing so well.

I really like how he’s concerned for my daughter and is helpful always answering my questions. He always reassures me she will be fine.
