New Patients

First Visit

We ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to fill out medical history and insurance information forms. Please bring your current insurance card to the office. If you have already had arteriograms or an ultrasound exam completed recently, we ask that you bring the actual x-rays with you for the doctor to personally review. This will save a great amount of time in deciding on proper treatment for your problem.

Also bring a list of the current medications you are taking.

Subsequent Visits

Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment time to make sure that we have all of the current information needed for the doctor.

We make every effort to have the doctor see you at your scheduled appointment time. It is possible, however, that the doctor may see you later than the time on your appointment card. There may be several reasons for this. The doctors try to give as much individual attention to each patient as possible and some require more time than was allotted on the schedule. Emergencies also occasionally arise, and we believe the sickest patient must take priority.

What Our Patients Are Saying

"I feel great since my surgery. My veins look great and I no longer have pain in my legs. I would recommend this procedure to anyone who needs it. Dr. Bays explained the surgery to me in great detail, and also made me feel very comfortable during the procedure. I couldn’t be any happier with my results."

"Thank you again and again to Dr. Bays for bringing relief to my legs and to your staff for all their help!"

Popliteal artery bypass and femoral endarterectomy

"I became a patient of Dr. Bays after life-threatening damage left by an aortal dissection – which happens when the inner layer of the large blood vessel branching off the heart tears. Blood surges through the tear, causing the inner and middle layers of the aorta to separate. If that blood filled area were to rupture, it would be fatal.

Thanks to Dr. Bays, I have little residual effect from the issue that landed me at the hospital. My recovery has been swift and I’m reassured that I’ll resume almost all aspects of my life, including teaching. I actually achieved a goal of mine to return to observe my high school students complete their exams in June.

Of course, I’ll be taking medications for the foreseeable future and adjustments to my diet will help prevent any reoccurrences. But all things considered, I’m extremely fortunate and think about that good fortune every day.

I really had no idea until well into my recovery what had happened to me. Once I returned home and spoke to my other doctors, and did some research of my own, I learned how lucky I was to have my condition at its outset managed and repaired by Dr. Bays.

I wish him nothing but the best in helping others to overcome dangerous health conditions."
