Dr. Hayes grew up in a family that valued the healing arts. Her father, a Pinellas County surgeon and her mother, a nurse, carried a profound respect for the medical journey from illness to wellness that she observed and now considers a great honor to be a part of. At the tender age of seven, she accompanied her father on his rounds and by age 12, she began joining him in the OR to observe surgery.
Dr. Hayes completed her undergraduate degree at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. She graduated, with honors, from Nova Southeastern University Medical School in Miami where she was president of the Women’s Academic Fraternity. Her Obstetrics and Gynecology specialty training were at Riverside Osteopathic Hospital in Trenton, MI. Dr. Hayes received her subspecialty training at a high-intensity, inner-city facility, Hudzel Hospital in Detroit, MI and completed her professional training at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn, MI. She moved back to Pinellas County and opened private practice and has been here ever since.
