  • I cried real tears when I heard Dr. Hayes was closing her traditional practice. I have been her patient for 22 years. One new pump user, two healthy babies, one emergency call and lots and lots of appointments.

  • I traveled an hour to see Dr. Hayes for the past year. I have never had a diabetes doctor like her. She actually listens and cares about her patients.

  • Dr. Hayes is a great doctor. Always caring about your well being. Checks everything to make sure it’s correct. And cares about patients’ concerns. In my book she is a 10. Found a problem when no one else could. We need more doctors like her.
