They did not accept my insurance but when I looked up in Zocdoc they said they accept it. So either Zocdoc is wrong or the clinic need to update their insurance accept details correctly so that they don’t waste anyone’s time.

Stay away! He keeps everybody waiting for hours! He is seeing you as a moneybag,not a person! It's really bad. All negative reviews are true! If you care about yourself find another doctor!

I waited 3 hours to see Dr. Kayal. Yes, 3 hours. No apology for the wait, which was kind of annoying. He seems to know his stuff, which when all is said and done is the most important thing. I'll knowmore about him as time goes on. I will be having surgery soon. I hope he is as good as his reputation.

Dr Kayal is very self-confident, bordering on arrogant, but is willing to spend the time to explain why "he is the best". I waited 2.5 hours past appointment time, but he did answer all my questions and gave me his fullattention for an hour. Hopefully he is as good a surgeon as he thinks he is.

Everyone was very professional. The doctor was thorough and took his time. He seemed very qualified and confident in his diagnosis. He released the pressure in my elbow which alleviated the pain substantially. I will need surgery, but I feel confident that he will do an excellent job.
