As a new patient of Dr Hayes, I found her to be exceptional. It was my experience that she listened to my concerns, then took the time to clarify the details of my medical history before providing me with treatment options. Dr Hayes answered all my questions about the options before we went forward with a plan. When I left her office I felt empowered, hopeful and full of gratitude for having a new provider like Dr Hayes. Thank you, Dr Hayes!

Dr Sarah Hayes, her staff and Adult Medicine check in staff are friendly, professional, and caring. Always concerned about their patients. I have shared Dr Hayes’s name with several of my friend over the years. Dr Hayes always wants to know about my emotional, as well as, my physical well-being when I meet with her. She is compassionate and encourages me to live my best health. When my benchmark health is questionable, Dr Hayes will suggest the change and complete a follow up. She is thorough. I can’t say enough good about her.

Dr. Sarah Hayes always goes above and beyond to make sure that all my questions are answered, that I feel heard, and that she is prepared for follow up visits.
