Dr. K. Hayes cares about his patients. He doesn't just assumes, he assigns the proper testing to find out the problem. Ex. I told him I had problems with choking sometimes, he didn't assume this or that, he ordered the test, I'm glad he did because my health could've taken a turn for the worst. Also, he asks me questions until he gets the proper answer. He returns my calls, or emails is timely fashion. I never want to leave Dr. K. Hayes. Or him leaving NW physician's group.
