I have battled endometriosis for most of my life. Dr. Hayes was the last of a long list of physicians that I had visited in my quest to end the constant pain and discomfort that had become a part of my everyday life. I arrived for my first appointment somewhat skeptical that this would be any different than the other physician visit which had proven to be completely ineffective. Over the years, I hadn’t found anybody with an understanding of the impact that this condition was having on my life and no solution to the problem. However, on the recommendation of a very trusted friend, I decided to try one more time. Well, I have to say that Dr. Hayes has renewed my faith in the medical profession. Over the course of 10 months she patiently took the time to educate me on my options. When I finally decided to have surgery, Dr. Hayes was completely supportive and again took the time to make sure that I understood all aspects. She continued to meet with me on several occasions to answer all my questions and address all my concerns until I felt comfortable with my decision. Dr. Hayes performed the surgery remarkably and I have now come out the other side with a new take on life. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Dr. Hayes. Her competence and compassion go unsurpassed–she has truly changed my life!
