Verified Patient Reviews
A thorough exam that was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. The time spent was not rushed and very professional. I felt very confident with his expertise.
The doctor was professional and welcoming. The lady at the reception was especially helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. They had a spacious lobby. The office is super clean and nice. You can have coffee or a beverage while you wait there. There is a living room with very tidy, clean couches and a TV. All the staff I encountered was friendly and professional. I will keep going to this office with this doctor in the future.
Extremely professional staff. Well motivated and caring. Doctor Hayes was great,
Quick, professional appointment. Definitely made the experience of getting glasses for my first time as easy as possible. I have already recommended him to friends and family.
wait times were way too long... I took about 30 minutes and answered all needed questions about health history, meds, etc, on line prior to the visit. They started asking the same questions after I arrived for appt. I finally explained that I answered all those questions on line previous to my visit and they then referred to their notes. I would never go back...
They are a very clean, very professional office with people who make you comfortable and explain what is going on and what they are testing. It's an overall great office!!

I've been a patient of Dr Hayes since 2002! Love him & his very professional & friendly staff. Their new facility is beautiful; appointments always go smoothly & efficiently. I highly recommend Total Vision Care & Dr Hayes. I won't go anywhere else!
Dr. Hayes was very good about re-examining my eyes when I was unable to see through the eyeglasses I purchased from another source. He also made a recommendation on what I needed to do to fix the problem.
He explained everything completely.
Not only was Dr Hayes knowledgable and professional, his staff made me feel welcome the moment I walked in. I will recommend this practice to everyone!
