Patient Comments

March 2019

I am sorry I do not know the names of the individuals that took care of me. But I do want to say I had wonderful, professional, comforting care from all I was in contact with. The entire staff responsible for my care were very courteous and polite and made my stay there a very good experience considering the reason I was there.

Feb 2019

I was completely satisfied with all my treatments and with all the people involved. Everyone I was in contact with was helpful and kind. The facilities were clean and kept up even during some very bad weather that coincided with my stay. Thanks to everyone!

My RN Molli was amazing. She was caring, empathetic and sensitive. Great at explaining things that were going to happen and always answering my questions, before I could even ask. She is a blessing.

November 2018

In the las 30 hours here at HaysMed I have had the best nurses and aides that anyone could every ask for. Amber and the night nurse (can’t remember her name) did their very best to make sure I had everything I needed and wanted to make my stay exceptionally good out of a bad situation. I have had the best care and would recommend this facility to everyone

I would like to give a special thanks to the nurses – Amber and Shelby and staff Brenda for their outstanding care of my brother. Their professionalism and abilities were worthy of praise and recognition. I realize how difficult patients can be after surgery and during recovery/rehab they went above and beyond. Thank you and God Bless.

Excellent personal care, with attention to detail.

We had great care by Dr. Max DeCarvalho and his staff for my spinal surgery. Also, by the staff on the joint floor where I stayed. Shelby Rohr stood out as very caring and on top of my after-surgery care.

The care I received at the Bone, Joint, and Spine Center during my stay (4/3/18- 4/5/18) for a knee replacement was exceptional. I want to especially say thank you to my nurses Amber and Kim, who I felt went above and beyond. They were wonderful.

Had a very pleasant experience. Good staff and RNs. Surgical staff is top notch. Very nice facility.

I got well taken care of and got my needs met. I had my leg operation and my night nurse she set with me. I like pain chart—good. I would stay again and tell others about hospital. It is nice to get milk at my meals.

Everybody was excellent. Everybody laughed at my jokes even though I’m not a comedian or great speller. I enjoyed my stay.

Everyone that worked with me was very good. All nice and friendly. I was more awake today and Amber was great. I will continue to come to HaysMed.

I am leaving very happy, all doctors and nurses treat me with respect and everybody was very nice. Thank you everybody please keep it like that.
I really liked PT. Joyce, she was so good and we liked OC. Pam. She was so friendly and good.

We are very happy with the stay and the wonderful care we received from the staff at the Bone, Joint and Spine center. Special thanks to the most wonderful nurse, Amber. Thank you for being so kind, caring and empathetic. You truly are an example and inspiration to nursing! We will never forget your kindness! God bless you, always!

The care I have received here has been awesome. From the moment I arrived I was kept well informed and felt compassion from all of the staff. Having been on the floor I have enjoyed watching the excellent teamwork and happy staff which made me a happy patient. Being informed about what is happening has made a huge difference. I would recommend this facility to anyone. Don’t have the room to list all of the wonderful staff but they all should have an A+.

My husband and I really thought that everyone had an exceptional attitude. Amber was wonderful. I am looking forward to my next surgery. Than you everyone.

All in Bone/Joint/Spine were kind and caring. All the while delivering technical excellence. Thanks.
I had a great experience with my mocrodiscectomy. All the staff were very helpful, knowledgeable and receptive to my comfort. So far, the day after my surgery my pain has been almost completely irradiated. Thanks to Dr. Sharma and his expertise.

I would most definitely return to this hospital for any medical procedures in the future. An a huge thanks to my nurses for their care and support. All in all, I would rate my experience a 10/10. Great Job Hays Med!

I truly appreciate the great care I received from the time I got here throughout my stay. Everyone was prompt and very thoughtful. Thank you for everything.

February 2016

Very good medical staff. All are very helpful and very good at what they do. Thank you all for your great service.

Your nursing staff was wonderful. I have to admit Connie your PCT was my favorite. I would recommend this hospital to everyone. I chose you because you replaced my knee for me and I have never had a problem of any kind. You’re on top of your game. Thank you very much.

Everything went great and everyone was upbeat and personable.

Good staff. Nurse Brecken was very good and at her job. A joy to be around.

The entire nursing staff and the doctors were wonderful. I found the nursing staff caring, very attentive, friendly and always happy. The doctors were very educated and caring also. I felt comfortable. I would choose HaysMed overall!

Dr. Grove was very professional and answered all my questions. May Beth was my nurse and was very sweet and tried to keep me comfortable and also answered all my questions and was very patient with me. All staff was very kind and understanding. Thank you.

*I had a total knee replacement on January 18. All the staff here at the bone, joint and spine center have been and were very understanding, knowledgeable and very informative! The day nurse Amber went the extra mile to help me with my pain and showed me how to make the best of my stay here. She makes sure that her patients are comfortable and well taken care of.
