Specialties

Dr. Mark D Hays has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Cardiology

    Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians with additional, specialized, training in the heart health of your children. When infants are born with congenital heart disease or abnormal hearts, pediatric cardiologists get involved as soon as possible — sometimes before the child is even born.
    Through specific testing, they can diagnose the problem and care for the child throughout their treatment, which could range from medication to surgery and transplants. Other heart conditions they treat include arrhythmias, heart murmurs, holes in the heart and viral infections that affect blood flow.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Waited over 3 hours !

First appt, we arrived and he didn't show up. 2nd appt we arrived to wait over 3 hours for him to tell me he was on vacation for our first appt (staff told me he was sick). My daughter was crying because she missed her summer program for the evening. He came in the room and I told him how upset we both were, he said "I wasn't even supposed to work the clinic all day", I replied that he had 5 walkouts that should've allowed some time and to leave a patient for over 3 hours in a room is unacceptable! He then told me that he was terminating his residency with the hospital at the end of the month. Really?? Like that's my business. He looked over the chart and said ''I had ordered an X-ray, but they didn't do one, so I'm not going to worry with it", he continued with she has probably always had this deviation and always will. The nurses that work for him are the only positive thing this Dr has going for him, from our experience.
