Absolutely love Dr. Hayes!! Great doctor, great surgeon, really great person!! I’ve never felt so comfortable with a doctor as I am with her, I highly recommend her !!!!
I don’t normally write a review, but because my quality of care from Dr. Jennifer Hayes and her staff was outstanding during the beginning visits, surgery and follow ups I had to write. I would highly recommend her for your needs.
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!
As soon as I met Dr. Hayes and her staff, I knew I was in good hands. These people are passionate about what they do and treat their patients with great understanding and compassion. After major pelvic restoration surgery (robotic sacrocolpopexy and colporrhaphy), I was amazed at how fast I recovered and how good I felt.
There are not enough beautiful-positive words I can use to describe the “awesomeness” of Dr. Hayes, her surgical coordinator Sandi — and the entire … and I mean entire team at Visionary Centre for Women. From the very first day I walked in, not know what I even needed to ask about, to after my surgery. Everyone is so friendly, patient, humorous & kind — made my visit fun & comfortable!
When my gynecologist told me I was finally going to get my hysterectomy, I was thrilled! I had suffered for years with painful heavy periods. When she told me she would only do it abdominally because of my precious C sections, I was crushed. I didn’t want ANOTHER big scar across my belly. I didn’t want to be out of work and unable to care for my family for 6 to 8 weeks.
Then my mother told me about Dr. Hayes and the new things she was doing with laparoscopic surgery. Dr. Hayes couldn’t have been nicer! She met with me and explained everything to me. She felt confident she could perform the surgery with the use of the Da Vinci robot. I even discussed the possibility of having plastic surgery done at the same time and not only was she supportive; she offered to coordinate her schedule with the plastic surgeon.
After the surgery, I couldn’t believe how good I felt so fast and no big scar! I was back at work in about 3 weeks. I am so happy I had the surgery. I feel like I have my life back! Thank you Dr. Hayes!
Dr. Hayes had been referred to my by two women that had surgery by her that were very satisfied with their results. Although I was worried about having surgery, I was confident that the surgery would go well and so it did. The recovery was faster and better than I expected. I would recommend Dr. Hayes to all my friends and relatives.
I was referred to Dr. Jennifer Hayes through a co-worker. I needed surgery to repair a fallen bladder. When I first met with Dr. Hayes, I immediately felt at ease. Dr. Hayes is very professional; she examined me thoroughly and did not rush me through. She took the time to explain the procedure to me (Robotic Sacrocolpopexy), tell me what my options were and answered all the questions I had about the procedures. Once my surgery was completed, I was not as sore as I would have been with any other procedure. I had robotic surgery and after two weeks I was up and about. I would recommend Dr. Hayes to anyone needing this type of surgery.
I was diagnosed with pelvic prolapse at the age of 61 in NY. The doctor who treated me at that time recommended Kegel exercises and did not explain any other treatment options. When we moved to Florida, a year later, I researched this condition further and discovered Dr. Hayes website. When I read about the robotic surgery that she does – it seemed an answer to my prayers. From the first visit, Dr. Hayes was very understanding and told me that not only had my bladder dropped but also my cervix had fallen. She recommended robotic surgery and explained the entire procedure that would be done to me to correct my condition. She gave me hope that my condition could be corrected.
I went into the hospital on a Friday morning and I was back in my home on Saturday afternoon. My recuperation was amazing. Within a week or two, I started to do little things. I was cautious about stretching and bending down for something but the discomfort was minimal. I found using a pillow to sleep with gave me support to my stomach as I lay on my side. The operation that Dr. Hayes performed totally changed my life. I feel fantastic. I would definitely recommend this robotic surgery and especially Dr. Hayes to anyone having the same condition.
I came to Dr. Hayes after my local gynecologist told me that my fibroid was too large to be removed vaginally and that I would need a traditional hysterectomy. This meant a large abdominal incision. Dr. Hayes offered a superior, less invasive robotic alternative. More importantly, Dr. Hayes was able to remove my uterus and fibroid with only 4 small incisions and I recovered in only 2 weeks time!
I would highly recommend Dr. Hayes and her wonderful staff. It was discovered during a routine checkup that my uterus was enlarged. After further testing, a large fibroid tumor was discovered in my uterus. I elected to have a hysterectomy because of my age. I then interviewed 3 doctors and was very discouraged as all 3 told me I was not a candidate for vaginal surgery or a minimally invasive option but would need a large incision and extended recuperation time. I then found out about Dr. Hayes. What a godsend she was! She told me she could do a robotic hysterectomy. By week three, I was back to normal with only three very tiny incisions and I feel fantastic! Thank you Dr. Hayes & Staff.
I thank you so much for all you have done for me. I am happy and healthy and going on with life. You and your whole team are so supportive and helpful to women like me who get anxious before procedures, let alone a total hysterectomy. You inspired such confidence. You actually listened to my fears and addressed them. While I know women who have had robotic hysterectomies and told me it was really an easy recovery, I am old enough to know many women who had open surgery for their hysterectomies and took months to recover. I was apprehensive. (Read that SCARED).
All my fear was wasted energy! You and your team and Morton Plant Hospital did a great job. I had no problems with the anesthesia, the nurses on the floor were so nice that night, and I was home the next day. Then I waited for the difficult recovery. And waited, and waited. I was very tired the first week after surgery and slept a lot. The second week I did more, and was still a little tired. I had practically no pain at all. I think I may have taken 1 or 2 pain pills at night, but that was all. I still can’t believe I had a major surgery without any hassle or pain! My recovery was ridiculously easy. I recommend the robotic surgery without any hesitation. The Robot is only as good as the person operating it and you are the best, a truly skilled and caring surgeon. Your compassion shows in all aspects of your practice. Walking into your office and discussing my GYN issues was one of the best decisions in my life.
