    What a difference from the previous visit to a different orthopedic doctor! Dr. Layug listened carefully, examined thoroughly, and then diagnosed my condition. He also talked to me about another orthopedic problem I had before the one presented at the time of my appointment. I felt confident in understanding what was wrong (he even used simple metaphors to explain) and in following his treatment plan. I left the office feeling lightened and ready to heal. What more could one ask from a health care provider?

    I have been consistently impressed with Dr Layug's expertise and communication skills in both of the injuries he has treated me for (elbow compression fracture and bimalleolar ankle fracture) as well as the professionalism and efficiency of his staff. He answers my many questions fully and respectfully, which is a very important quality for me in a medical care provider. From the start of each treatment he has clearly articulated how I can expect the recovery process to unfold, which has been helpful in my planning. He has given me clear instructions about how to optimize my recovery as well as what to do and avoid doing at each stage. I highly recommend him.

    Dr. Layug set an incredibly high bar for his performance as my orthopedic surgeon the first time he repaired my ACL and thus I had no doubt in my mind to seek treatment from him again when I injured myself the second time years later.
