Patient Reviews

Dr. Haynes is a great Dr who truly cares about his patients. I have all the confidence in him that he is making the best decisions for my health. Dealing with a chronic condition has its ups and downs, but Dr. Haynes has such an optimistic view on treatments it gives me inspiration and hope. I am so thankful to have him as my practitioner. Thank you for all that you do!!!



I want to express an extra amount of gratitude to Rachel. I hope that this survey makes it's way to the CEO, Jim. I just want to make sure she is acknowledged for going above and beyond to help out in a situation. I couldn't say enough good things about Dr. Haynes either. Dealing with my health issues on a daily basis is very difficult but having a doctor like him helps.

I just wanted to make sure to bring a positive note to the office and make sure that it is know just how appreciative I am.

God Bless.
