Philosophy of Medicine

"I recall the golden words of Dr. Tinsley Harrison No other opportunity or obligation can fall upon the human beings than to be a Physician. In the care of the ill he needs technical skill, scientific knowledge, and human understanding. I, take care of every patient as if they are my own family member. It is an honor and privilege for me to be a doctor."

    Dr. Ayaa is the ONLY doctor in the Grand Forks area who has a thorough knowledge of Pulmonary Hypertension. Please, please do whatever you have to do to keep him on staff. Prior to his arrival here, I traveled every six months to Mpls Heart Institute to see a Cardiologist. Dr. Aboufahker discussed with us that when Dr. Ayaa arrived, he would be knowledgable about care options for me. He was right and after 20+ years driving back and forth to Mpls, we are trusting Dr. Ayaa to take care of my complex health issues. Again, he is a bit difficult to understand due to accent but otherwise, we are so very pleased with him. KEEP HIM HERE!
