Doctor Mays an excellent doctor who is not only book smart but is genuinely interested in her patients. I have referred family and friends to her and they are always impressed with her knowledge and touched by her genuine concern. As a person with chronic migraines, the constant pain can sometimes be quite irritating. Dr. Mays goes out of her way to not only dispense medical advice but to also provide care and comfort. She always quickly responds to phone calls and MyChart messages even when I mark them non urgent. She is definitely my favorite doctor.

Dr. Mays is an excellent provider that provided me with "World Class Care". Although she was late due to unavoidable grand rounds, she apologized and explained the situation upon entering the room. She then informed me that she had reviewed my chart the night before, an element of care that carries major importance in providing "World Class Care". She thoroughly examined me and considered all aspects of my other pre-existing conditions when formulating a treatment plan. I have seen, and continue to see, several providers in other specialties at the Cleveland Clinic. Dr. Mays is a superior practitioner, and exceptionally knowledgeable in her area of expertise.
