The best review I can give is to say that I have NOTHING negative to say about my experiences. Dr. Hays and his staff are super nice and very efficient. Dr. Hays becomes friends with his patients and he takes the time to fully explain things and never rushes through my appointment. He NEVER makes you feel like you are not his top priority. I trust him completely ... I know that I am in good hands.

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.

After my heart failure I had gotten another local group from Merit. I had a lot of problem with them with cancelling appt. or meds. After changing to Jackson Heart, I would recommend them to everyone! They treat you like a Friend w/understanding
