      No matter the rating scale (5,10, 100), I would rank Dr Ayoub as outstanding for his preparation (he reviewed my case the night before!), his out-of-the-box thinking, about options, his attention to detail, his patient-centered approach, his care in explaining (and assuring my understanding of) the options, his forthrightness and genuine concern for my condition.

      Dr. Ayoub is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever visited. He listens to your concerns, gives recommendations, and then let's you decide the best treatment option for you. I would recommend him to anyone needing the services he provides. My visits with him and his PA are always pleasant and comforting. I could do a commercial for him.

      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.
