Half of my ear was bitten completely off by a large dog. I was extremely lucky that Dr. Ayoub was the plastic surgeon on call that night. Not only did he do an excellent job sewing it back on, but he used his connections to immediately get me into Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments at UNMC, which ultimately saved my ear. Dr. Ayoub is very friendly and easy to talk to. I was pretty scared that night. He has an excellent bedside manner, which is just as important as the physical care.
