The doctor was good. The nurse did not make me feel very taken care of. I have a fear of needles,so I like to make practitioners aware of that. The nurse did not make me feel like I was being taken care of in that way. He was hesitant to let me lay down and stay laying down throughout the biopsy and cortisone shot. He also immediately saw me back up, which lead to me almost passing out. I felt like I was being rushed out of the office and not given time to calm my body down. The doctor was great, nurse needs to work on bedside manner

I have been in the medical profession a very long time and went to see Dr. Kayal for an in-office procedureconsult. His bedside manner, as well as that of his assistant's was less than desirable. His asst. never even spoke & kept glancing at me as if I should not be in their office. Upon check in, his receptionist stated I did not have an apt, so I showed her the confirmation on my IPhone. Very disorganized and seemed to be issues at check out with their computers as well as the lack of friendliness at check out. I have always treated my clients/customers with the utmost respect. Everyone deserves that. A Follow up appt was made, but I have canceled it upon departing their office. My main objective was to get out of the office. God Bless you and your practice.

The shameless onslaught of their extremely pushy sales tactics in the waiting room was disgusting. Once I finally got through the massive marketing and sales pitch that was the lobby and could see the doctor, the appointment was fine.

Very brusque, in and out without a great deal of bedside manner. Front office staff quite friendly but Dr and nurse were quite dismissive.

Honestly, he was just okay. He is definitely good at what he does but he was not really that friendly. I also did not really like the fact that their were two extra people in the exam room with the doctor.I feel like I should’ve gotten a heads up or an introduction when he walked in the room to see me with someone else especially since I was going to have to expose my breast area.

I have been seeing Dr. Kayal for over ten years now and he has the best manors and is always super kind. He has helped me when others could not. I am forever grateful for his knowledge, kindness, and caring heshows me ever time I have seen him. His staff is great and the PA is also very knowledgeable and kind. He listens and is so understanding of your issue. I will not ever go elsewhere as long as I can see him. I recommend him for any skin issues you may have, he will always try to find the best solution and work with you to help you. Teresa P.

I was impressed from the minute I walked in the door. Beautiful office. I did the paperwork when I booked online. Great idea! No paperwork in office. I brought a book to read during the wait time, however, I was calledback within 5 minutes. Called me back and everyone very nice and professional and wait in exam room for doctor was short. Doctor was thorough, and I felt he really listened and wanted to help me. Explained everything and provided choices for my care. I left very satisfied. Can't wait to return for some anti-aging treatments.

This was my 1st appt. I checked in 15 minutes early. The office is very posh and relaxing. Waited for an hour to be called back, then wait another 20. Dr. Kayal was very nice and seemed to have looked atmy paperwork prior to entering room. He looked at my face, gave me a couple information sheets, explained what they think the problem is, 2 prescriptions, 2 weeks appointment.

Made appointment on line - was very easy to do given I am a new patient. Got right in, precisely on time. Dr. Kayal is quite pleasant and explained everything about medical issue and treatment in detail. Was willing to talkabout non-medical things, and went out of his way to introduce his staff. I'm so pleased to have chosen Dr. Kayal.

Visit was very good. I arrived about 15 minutes early, and after getting checked it I only waited a couple minutes before I was called back. Both the assistant and the doctor were friendly and took the time to ask abouthistory and concerns before they began the examination. Over all it was a great experience, and highly recommend this practice.

Only complaint is that they wouldn't see me until I had my HSA debit card because I had changed insurance providers and the new cards had not arrived yet so I was electing to self-pay and submit to insurance myself. Idon't appreciate starting off a new relationship with a lack of trust. Otherwise, everything was great.
