“This place has nearly saved my life. Dr. Hayes is very intelligent and describes his methods extremely well in order for me to understand. Davis, the licensed therapist, is very kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Elite, all the staff is amazing.”

“Dr. Hayes is such an amazing doctor in that he explains everything to you in layman's terms, making sure you completely understand why he made this determination and why he wants a certain medication, if needed… He also has the greatest staff working for him. Friendly, courteous, professional, and yet they make you feel right at home, which is very nice because you're always nervous going into a doctor's office. I send out praise to Dr. Hayes and his wonderful staff, and I highly recommend him.”

“Vicki LeBleu is absolutely phenomenal. I love her and wouldn't want to go anywhere else.”
