About Andrea Hayes, MD
Andrea Hayes MD established Hayes Endocrine and Diabetes Center in Nashville, Tennessee, with the help of her beloved father. After the diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes at the age of 15, Dr. Hayes knew that she would become a physician specializing in this disease. She is grateful for the innovation and research that has occurred during her lifetime and she eagerly shares with her patients her personal experiences and knowledge that she has gained.
Dr. Hayes graduated from Auburn University with Honors with a Bachelor of Arts in French. She graduated from the University of Alabama School of Medicine in 1991. She then moved to Nashville and completed her internal medicine internship and residency at the University of Tennessee, Baptist Hospital. After completing a three-year fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at Vanderbilt University, she began private practice in 1997.
A member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and trusted patient advocate and educator, she lectures extensively to physicians and other health care providers providing the most advanced knowledge of state of the art diabetes care. Dr. Hayes recommends that selected patients with diabetes utilize technologies such as insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring technology and now implantable glucose sensors.
Dr. Hayes enjoys beaches, sunshine, exercise, reading, art collecting, and writing. She enjoys spending time with family and her two beloved rescue dogs, Fifi and Fergie. She is currently in the process of writing her first book, “Solo Practice” detailing her experiences as a patient, physician and business owner.
