I wish there was a choice of exceptionalism or excellent on this survey. I would check those boxes instead of what I had to choose from. This doctor is unequivocal in excellence in care. He has a very unique approach that I´ve never seen in another provider, and coordinates the care that I truly need. Another MD on the same floor I could say the same about.

April 2017
In my opinion, Dr. Hayashi is an exceptional physician. It took me awhile - 10 years - to find a primary care physician that 1.) takes time (he never seems rushed or behind, even though I know he has a full patient schedule 2.) listens, carefully 3.) asks for my opinion, and 4.) explains medical things in language I understand, and gives me the time to ask questions. VMMC should feel very fortunate to have a provider like Dr. Hayashi on its medical team!
