I was wondering if anyone knew why Dr. Hayes of Fort Sanders OB-GYN has retired. The doctor's office told me that it was for health issues and wanted to know if anyone had any other information. It must be a pretty serious issue to put him into retirement that quickly. I really like him. I have never went to a doctor who was so caring and also did his job to EXCEED expectations. Please, if anyone knows I would appreciate the info.

he's probably retiring because he can. many doctors are doing that in anticipation of the bad times they think obama's plans will bring. the latest straw is the government deciding after the fact that tests and procedures are not justified and requiring the doctors to reimburse any federal money that paid for them. too lazy to pre-approve, so they post-disapprove. I'd jump ship, too.

Yeah...good answer {rolling eyes}. Now...SERIOUSLY...does anyone know how bad Dr. Hayes health is? I really am concerned about him, not politics.

Apparently he is quite ill - he has information posted on the caring bridge website. I believe it is some form of cancer. I hope the person who believes that the government caused him to retire will think twice before being a smart alec in the future - Dr. Hayes is a great physician and an amazing and compassionate person and does not deserve ignorant comments!

Found out today that he does not have cancer he has ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, which is a devastating neurological dz. You can go to www.caringbridge.com and look up James Hays and it will take you to his story.

Yes, I too wonder what the name to use for Caring Bridge - you have to have the exact name for it to take you to the website -

I just heard about Dr. Hayes this week. I really hated to hear this. Does anyone know when exactly it was that he passed away, and where I could find his obituary? Thank's for any help.
