Emily Hayes is fantastic. She should teach classes to the entire hospital staff on how to properly care for patients. She shows empathy, remembers her patients, and is sincere in her communication and proper treatment of her patients.

Overall my visit was good! The MA was super nice and very personable. Emily was nice and I feel like all my questions and concerns were addressed. Waiting in the lab for my blood draw was long and a little inconvenient.

I felt frustrated at first because I know my body and expressed a concern to the nurse and was heard but my request wasn't done. My midwife explained and gave more information when I told her what happened. She advocated for me and the situation. From what my midwife explained I could see she advocates for her patients which brought me comfort and I was willing to be more open about any thing else I had a question about or that may come up in the future. Thanks for taking the time to listen and explain in detail. :)
