Review of Dr. Hayward

-MD |

Deserves ZERO stars for each of the following questions on this questionnaire. Spends most of his (well, MY time that I am paying him for) on his computer than listening to the patient. This clown was worse than my young grandson! At least he will look at me and answer me. I even gave this man a "second chance" and got the same result. Shame on him. Finding it extremely difficult to believe that he has so many positive reviews....

Review of Dr. Hayward

We met Dr. Hayward to discuss surgery, but he did not want to answer our questions (and actually told us not to question him). We nevertheless scheduled the surgery, but two days before the operation was to take place, his office told us we needed to have a cardiologist and a pulmonologist clear the surgery. We had to wait months to get the necessary appointments. We ultimately went with another surgeon and were very happy.

Excellent physician! Figured out my medical issue when no other doctor could. After suffering for years with pain, Dr Hayward removed endometrial tissue and gave me my life back! All previous male doctors fluffed off my complaints. I am forever indebted to Dr Hayward!

Review of Dr. Hayward

Dr. Hayward successfully repaired my inguinal hernia at the outpatient facility at Howard County General Hospital. After the surgery, I did not have pain and only minimal discomfort. Dr. Hayward answered all my questions and inspired confidence. He has a good sense of humor and cares about his patients.

Dr. Hayward was useless and strange. He spent 20 minutes googling images of my concern, gave no real advice, and charged me $300 for my appointment. Would not recommend.

Review of Dr. Hayward

- in Gwynn Oak, MD |

Dr. Hayward is a fantastic surgeon - very confident and competent - traits you want in a surgeon! His wealth of knowledge and his skill are amazing! He is very passionate about his profession. Dr. Hayward is a caring doctor with a great sense of humor. His follow-up care was wonderful. Following my surgery (at the hospital and when I went home), he was very attentive and always accessible. If I was to have surgery again, I'd definitely want him to do it.

Review of Dr. Hayward

- in Sykesville, MD |

Dr. Hayward met with me in his Howard County office. His examination revealed bi-lateral inguinal hernia in addition to the umbilical hernia that I knew about. He spoke to me in plain terms that were easy to understand. He was supremely confident in his ability to correct my issues. It has been a year since he did the procedure for me. I have been able to resume the athletic activities I enjoy. I will be recommending Dr. Hayward to anyone I meet looking for hernia repair. Like a BOSS...
