Dr. Hayden is a very caring and knowledgeable Dr. He treated me for chronic depression and pioneered the used of TMS with me and other patients.

Happier fellow – Jun 15, 2021
I was a patient of Dr. Hayden for 8+ years. I felt confident in his ability for years. However, 2 years ago his lack of interest and investment in my treatment sharply declined. 9 months ago he passed me onto a new CRNP with no explantion. ANGELA (crnp) has been fantastic. She discovered he misdiagnosed me and has been an angel. Today I got the shocking information that not only did they fire the long-standing office manager Linda, who is such a caring hardworking person, but they also forced Angela to have to leave after Dr. Hayden determined she was no longer a good fit for their office because she wanted to make calls that affected how much money he made vs providing care to those in need. I believe this speaks volumes. I'm not sure what happened but Dr. Hayden is not the person I thought he was and his bedside manner is in sharp decline. I feel like the behavior from the last year shows very poor character. I highly recommend Dr. Angela Caires who will be moving to a new practice.

After decades of struggling with Major Depressive Disorder and seeing multiple physicians, trying many different medications, I saw Dr. Hayden. Through his advice and care I have been in remission from my MDD for over 5 years.

Dr. Hayden is a Christ Centered psychiatrist. His knowledge of psychiatry surpasses none. He really goes out of his way to help each and every patient he has. One thing I liked about him was that he really tried to help. He does not just drug you up and pass you along. I would recommend Dr. Hayden to anyone in need of treatment. Lisa C.

Lisa C. in Madison , Alabama – May 06, 2017
Dr. Hayden is wise, empathetic, and helpful. He is a wonderful listener and guided me from a suicidal spiral to a stable life, and I am forever grateful. He is the kind of Dr. that will call even on the weekend to check on you. He will spend extra time with you if you need it. I appreciate his use of both prescription and supplements to improve your mental health. After years of trying prescription after prescription to treat my crippling anxiety and depression, I tried TMS and it worked.
