The doctor believes strongly in second opinions, and if there are any doubts concerning your diagnosis, he will be more than willing to refer you to another physician.

He is interested in both your medical and your personal history since these two factors seem to be intertwined in most cases. Dr. Jayanty believes that communication with patients improves his ability to understand their medical problems and to be a successful practitioner.

Dr. Jayanty’s father and sister are also physicians, and he is proud to continue in this family tradition of helping people to heal.

Married for over thirty-six years to his lovely wife Teresa, they have six children.
