Horrible Experience

I wish I would of read these reviews before taking my baby to this Dr. My regular Dr was booked so I came to him. Made me feel completly stupid with all my questions and acted like I wasted his time. Didn't even talk to my baby or my 3 year old who was with me. I don't know how this man is a pediatrician and works with little kids. He needs to have a little more empathy for parents since he doesn't know their story. Some of us are on little or no sleep and I'm also on my own since my husband is in the military and deployed. This dr made me feel like such an idiot and like I was wasting his time. I would NEVER recommend anyone to this man.

Suprised by bad reviews!

Dr. Hayden is always willing to answer questions in thorough detail with us. When we have questions about the flu shot he even gave us the complete history of the vaccine and why they give them. He has always been friendly and had good bedside manner every time we've been in. When he switched her antibiotics, he explained why. The MA's that we've seen have also been friendly. The front desk is a little lacking, not always friendly, but it's the people seeing my child that I'm most concerned about!

awful front desk

Receptionist up front was always extremely rude especially when trying to make any other appointment besides a well child check. They could never get my billing right either I constantly had to call with my insurance. So annoying I switched doctors

Two Thumbs Down

If you want a Doctor to make you feel dumb like you waisted their time and talk over you Dr. Hayden is your guy. I left his office crying with how dumb he made me feel. My Doctor was out Of The office and we Saw Dr. Hayden as a Back up. He was a complete waste of my time I will be not seeing him ever again.

Could care less

Dr. Hayden is very short with his answers. He comes in the room, doesn't wash hands and stays on his computer the majority of the time and says basic statements like "that's normal" or "well she is a baby". For a first time parent this was a doctor making me feel stupid for asking questions I thought were reasonable concerns. My daughter has been to the phoenix children's urgent care on multiple occasions for her asthma and he has yet to prescribe her the medicine needed. She also had an infection where sores were on her throat, also taken care of by the urgent care because Dr. Hayden only wants to tell you she may have had too much formula or that it's a simple cold/virus. Never any help. His nurse is super nice however and always happy whereas the doctor acts like you are wasting his time and is in and out of the room in 5min or less for sick visits. For her PCP to never follow up and instead an emergency physician follows up says something. Go else where
