Patient Comments (6)
in Marion, IL |
I had been in severe pain for a long time and was diagnosed by another doctor with vertebrate deterioration. The doctor suggested I should have back surgery to correct it. I went to Dr. Hayward for a second opinion, and after a mri, he informed me the problem was not my back at all, but my hip. I had a hip replacement and have had very little problems with my back and minimal pain. He is a very knowledgeable Christian man.
Dr Hayward did back surgery on my daughter. We have been very pleased with the results. She had previously had surgery for the same problem and got no relief from the pain. My daughter and I would highly recommend him to our family and friends. He is a Godly man and we so appreciated him. Mike and the rest of his staff at the cape and Marion offices were great. Thank you Doctor Hayward and Staff for your loving care and kindness.

Was labeled a 'drug seeker' 2 months after surgery when I couldn't stand or walk. Was diagnosed THE NEXT DAY with staph infection on the very vertebrae that was operated on. This resulted in a full year of antibiotics and 2 PICC lines with different complications. To top it all off, my spouse was told that the infection was my fault. My spouse was told that he (Dr. Hayward) 'ran out of time' during my surgery. Condition is worse now (2years) than it was prior to surgery. NO REFERRALLS
Beat customer service. Always have the answers. Dr Hayward I would recommend to anyone. Very polite.
All staff has been exceptional. All staff have explained things very well from the procedure to scheduling. I have not ever had better treatment and care.
Very blessed to be a patient of Doctor Hayward
