After I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer I was an emotional mess. First surgeon I saw was horrible and basically left me thinking my days were numbered. I found Dr. Ayscue and feel blessed. She had a wonderful bedside manner and treated me like a person and not just a patient. I am currently NED thanks to her. Also she had her staff look at my scans and they detected a tumor on my liver that was cancer whereas the original radiologist wasn't overly concerned and wanted to just wait 3 months to scan again. Because of her care I was able to have that spot removed with microwave ablation. If I had waited 3 months I may not have been able to have that done. Love her!
I am exceptionally pleased with the treatment I received from Dr. Ayscue and her staff. I particularly admired her matter-of -fact approach, combined with a sense of deep concern. I feel she was very thorough in her approach when dealing with my particular circumstance, and I am grateful for the care I received. I highly recommend Dr. Ascyue for anyone who may be searching for a surgeon in her field of expertise.
Dr. Ayscue performed surgery on me recently. Every aspect from pre-op to post-op was handle in a manner in which I am very grateful. The Doctor's staff is very professional and answered any questions with ease. Thank you for all the care and understanding during my visits and stay in Washington Hospital Center.
Dr. Ayscue took time to look at my MRI results and come up with what I believe is the key to my persistent and worsening bowel condition that started in 2003 and caused me to miss out on most of my 30's. After seeing GIs and surgeons, in Atlanta, DC, Baltimore, and New York and being dismissed and condemned to live life as a hermit , Dr. Ayscue recommended me to look at my fibroids as a possible cause of my issues. These fibroids have shown up multiple times but no other doctor even thought to have me treat them. I can only imagine all the damage done as my my mom and both aunts have hysterectomies and my sister has severe symptoms from hers as well. She took the time to call back personally and discuss her thoughts and what I should do next, not like other doctors. I felt like she at least cared enough not to dismiss me which at this point I consider exceptional care.
Dr. Ayescue is one of the most experienced and efficient rectal surgeons in the field. At the day of surgery I was impressed with the professionalism of the staff and how much they cared about each patient. What reassured me most was her reputation for the least amount of complications in her work. The surgery was highly successful and I recovered quickly with far less pain than I had imagined. After suffering for two years, she gave me my health back and I am very grateful for her surgical skills and talent. When your butt is on the line, you want to go to the best.
