    Dr. Ayoub is excellent in his explanations of my condition and what remedies may be applied. He is obviously concerned about my health and how I react to various medications. He and his staff go the extra mile to ensure my health and safety.

    There should be a category higher than Very Good. Dr. Ayoub was outstanding in every way. He explained things in a clear, easy to understand manner, had time for all my questions and encouraged more questions. He could teach other doctors how to communicate with patients. I can't say enough good things about him.

      Dr. Ayoub thoroughly explained the options and reasons behind a proposed change in my therapy. He and his staff help ensure that I feel included in decisions and that I understand what they are doing, and how I participate in this. Casey, the cardiology tech, did an excellent job of explaining the application of the heart monitor, what precautions to take, etc.

      Dr. Ayoub was so helpful! He was observant, thorough, explained fully and used language that could be understood, expressed an opinion but left the decision to the patient. He even helped me access data from my smart watch.

      Dr. Ayoub is simply the greatest! He did a fine job with my successful cardiac catheterization procedure last October. I have also found him extremely pleasant and helpful to deal with. He shows excellent concern for my own concerns about my health.

      Dr. Ayoub was extremely personable and caring for my medical problem. When I rejected his initial recommendation, He did not disapprove, but offered multiple other options, and we agreed on a course of action and follow up. Should be noted that in a previous life, I was an Orthodontist.
