Unlike some doctors that may initially start out to want to help you, Dr Hayek does not give up when challenges surface, no matter how hard. His perseverance and sincere desire to want to help you, coupled with the fact that he is an amazing skilled surgeon, is what every patient hopes for. I was just blessed enough to have him for a doctor .
As a patient who had just recovered from Steven Johnsons Syndrome (TENS) I was very conscious of my drooping eyelid (ptosis) . Dr Brent Hayek at the Emory Eye Hospital examined me and scheduled me for surgery a month later. At the time of the surgery he took the time to explain the procedure to me and put me at ease. During the course of the following week, I experienced no pain or any sign of infection, and was pleasantly surprised to see how successful and painless the procedure was. I owe a debt of gratitude to Dr Brent Hayek for restoring my self confidence and my eyelid to normal. More importantly for being his caring attitude, attention to detail, a skilful and competent surgeon
Dr. Hayek is a caring, very capable doctor who puts his patients at ease. He called me after surgery to check on how I was getting along. My surgery involved the removal of a basal cell carcinoma from my eyelid. His followup was great, and I was most impressed by his caring attitude. For most appointments, I was seen on time. Only on one occasion did I have to wait 30+ minutes and that was due to his having been in surgery longer than expected.
