Patient Comments

  • Jul 15, 2019

    My experience at this provider was very positive. However, when I was doing some of the pre-op stuff, I had been told I would get a call back from the anesthesia department and I never got a response from them and it would have been nice to have had that conversation before the day of surgery.

  • Jul 08, 2019

    Dr. Loyo listened to each of my concerns and she provided responses that seemed valid.

  • Jul 06, 2019

    Very satisfied with the services that they provided.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    Yes, Dr. Loyo in my opinion is one of the most gifted doctors I've ever dealt with in dermatology and I've had lots of problems with my nose over the years,. her surgery corrected it 100% to my satisfaction in a very short period of time. I highly recommend her to my friends and anyone else that has similar dermatological issues. I cannot stress how much I was pleased with the work she did.

    Hi my experience with Dr. Myriam Loyo Martinez was great. I thought she was a good doctor. I'm hoping that the follow up and upcoming surgeries are good, and also follow up with the ear doctor comes soon. Other than that, I'm pretty satisfied. Thank you.

  • May 17, 2019

    Dr.Loyo was very empathetic from the first consult to surgery day and after. I was impressed by her willingness to spend all the time with me which I needed to discuss all my options and feel confident moving forward. She truly sought a dialogue about what I wanted filtered it through her technical expertise of what is possible, safe and aesthetic. I'm so swollen up now, it's hard to judge the outcome, but I felt safe in her apparently competent hands and at ease with her experience and sympathy for transgender issues.

  • May 16, 2019

    I was very happy with that provider and I would recommend her to any of my family and friends.

  • May 11, 2019

    This was a first visit with Dr. Loyo. We did not have to wait a longtime to be seen. She was knowledgeable about my husbands condition,and told us what the surgery would be like. She also gave us the positive and negative of the surgery as well as describing another option. She was kind. She also gave us a time-line which helps us.
