I have taken to looking at reviews before I see a new Dr. and Dr. Hayes had mostly good reviews. However, there were a few "one Stars". I cannot fathom the reasoning behind these reviews. Dr. Hayes and his office staff were professional, prompt and definitely explained what my skin growths were all about and did not push for even a liquid nitrogen treatment. I would highly recommend him

He is very nice and the entire office staff are great as well I have NF1 and have to have neurofibromas removed. He had done a great job with very little to no scaring. I recently had to go in for a different reason. I could not see Dr. Hayes so I saw Kelly she was wonderful as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I would recommend Dr. Hayes. I have seen him a couple times. Was traveling to Spring Hill office from Pulaski, TN. Because I had been seeing Dr. Robb. He suggested to cut out some drive time for me, because he is in the Columbia office 3 or 4 days a week he would be glad to see me there. Dr. Hayes has a relaxed and laid back attitude, which makes him easier to understand when he is explaining things. If you are looking for a doctor that is down to earth he is your guy.

I’ve been to see Dr Hayes on multiple occasions. In each instance I found him to be extremely caring and knowledgeable in his interactions with me and his diagnoses of my skin issues; of which I’ve had several bouts of all 3 varieties of skin cancers. Fortunately, he’s been able to diagnose and treat all of them quickly and completely. I highly recommend him and his staff to anyone who is in need of a very fine and caring dermatologist.

I have been a patient for several years of Dr. Hayes and I have truly been very satisfied with his care as I have had quite a number of basal cell carcinomas identified and removed. He is personable and gets right to the issue. The staff are professional and the office is clean. All very courteous and makes for a pleasant experience. I would certainly recommend Dr. Hayes.

I learned on my initial visit that Dr. Hayes considered me a person who just happened to be his patient. I am well pleased with his knowledge and expertise in the field of dermatology and would have no reservation whatsoever in recommending him to family or friends and have done that several times. The office atmosphere has courteous people who know their jobs well making everything run efficiently. If you have dermatology needs, look no further than Dr. Hayes and his fine staff!

Wonderful Doctor! I got to meet Dr Hayes today and was really impressed with the staff and HIM! Had an awesome experience! This man is truly a very caring doctor, and has surrounded himself with some of the most wonderful young ladies! I do not like going to doctors, but if they were all like Dr, Hayes then going would not be that stressful!

Dr. Hayes is an excellent physician. His office personnel, at least in Columbia, are great. I've been several times and have been able to get in without too much trouble. I love his bedside manner... he makes me feel comfortable talking to him about my problems. I've also gotten my wife and mother-in-law in to see him, with excellent results. I'd recommend Dr. Hayes to anyone.
