Doctor Hays is an excellent cardiologist yet ready and willing to consult with his peers to determine the best procedure. He had installed a couple of stents in one of my heart arteries, and I started having problems again a couple of years later. He started to install another stent, saw the artery was totally blocked at a junction, and made the call to consult with his cardiology group about the best solution. Ultimately, he turned me over to one of his peers, Dr. Protos, who did a bypass.

It was an initial consult based on the tests performed by my cardiologist in Greenwood Ms. I was immediately drawn to Dr. Hays warm and down to earth explanation of what he does and how it applied to me. He did indeed feel like a friend discussing something I needed to know. I will post again after procedure scheduled soon.
