    Dr. Hays was great! She educated me about my condition and gave me treatment options. She also entered my prescription immediately so I could pick it up downstairs. Really appreciated that.

    Dr. Hays was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable, validating, and understanding. She took the time to truly sit with me and discuss my options and goals, even though I could tell her clinic was very busy that morning. She is truly a great physician!

      Dr. Ann Hays is quite amazing, she talked to me with respect and utmost care. The best of all was her motherly nature, as she showed genuine concern about my wellbeing.

      This wasn't my first covid test so there wasn't a lot of information that I needed about it. But the overall care was good.

      Dr. Hays was incredible! She listened to all my concerns and explained every medication so I would understand exactly what to take and why. She made me feel valid in my concerns. I would absolutely recommend her!!!

      I ADORE my doctor. She went out of her way to make sure that I was cared for not only within her realm of practice, but referred me to another doctor to help resolve another issue. Got an appointment set up for me and all!
