My best friend had an excellent result from knee replacement surgery with Dr Ayers which is why I went to him. I did too! He is a wonderful, caring, talented surgeon

considering second opinion

I had to wait 2 hours in a packed waiting rm. Another woman in the waiting area had the same appt time as I did, when finally seen he brought two "scribes" into the small rm so that when I was asked to walk there was little room to do so, he pointed out he had been doing hips for 20 years. While he is very knowledgeble and did explain my problem he lacked compassion. .

I would not recommend this man or his office for anything. When I first met him he seemed nice and wanted to help. After two total knee replacements 8 weeks apart I still can not walk any great lengths and can not stand in a stationary spot more than 2 minutes. If I do, I have to sit and am in excruciating pain. It has been 2 years and I still stretch and sit with ice on it and get no relief. The stiffness is intolerable. Once my surgeries were done his secretary would be short with me on the phone and in person and he had no interest in helping me. I stopped seeing him over a year ago because when I would see him he would make faces at me and say I had to work through the pain as if I was lying about my level of pain. I feel once he does the surgery and gets paid he does not care anymore and the same with his secretary, she was very pleasant when I was inquiring about being his patient then became rude. I do have to give kudos to his nurse, she would also return my calls and helped the best she could. Dr. Ayers should be ashamed of his level of compassion and bedside manner.
