Dr. Hays is a skilled and excellent surgeon. Always spends the appropriate amount of time with me. Have had great experience so far with him. I would highly recommend Dr. Hays to anyone who has any issues with their hand.
Springfield Gardens, NY |
This doctor is remarkable I had completely damaged my right middle finger in a park exercise machine. I went to my doctor as soon as I got back and she sent me straight to the ER. The ER said that there was nothing they could do and they were going to leave my deformed finger as a numb. My Doctor made me an appointment with Dr. Hayes and he took my finger and did the impossible. I had reconstruction surgery without a skin graft my nail wasn't supposed to grow back but it did. I am thankful
in Melville, NY |
Dr. Hayes is amazing. He cares about his patients and is an outstanding surgeon. I needed plates and screws in my right wrist after a break and my hand works perfectly now. He returned my calls promptly and checked on me after the surgery. Thank you.
Plainview, NY |
Dr. Hays was recommended by a friend who also had hand surgery after hearing of my avocado injury where I severed a nerve in my finger. He was able to give me an appointment the same day that I called, and I had surgery within that week. During the surgery I was well taken care of. Dr. Hays was knowledgeable and thorough, and had an excellent bedside manner.
in Jericho NY |
Dr. Hays is an excellent surgeon and a very caring doctor. He gave me all the time I needed to understand my injury and the course of treatment necessary for the best outcome. He is patient and empathetic--rare qualities nowadays.
