Jennifer S. Hayes, DO, FACOOG
Board Certified in Gynecology & Gynecologic Surgery

At Visionary Centre for Women, Dr. Jennifer Hayes combines her wisdom of over 15 years experience to provide passionate, dynamic gynecologic care for women. Her focus is on maintaining women’s vitality, quality of life and self esteem.

Dr. Hayes grew up in a family that valued the healing arts. Her father, a Pinellas County surgeon and her mother, a nurse, carried a profound respect for the medical journey from illness to wellness that she observed and now considers a great honor to be a part of. At the tender age of seven, she accompanied her father on his rounds and by age 12, she began joining him in the OR to observe surgery.

Dr. Hayes completed her undergraduate degree at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. She graduated, with honors, from Nova Southeastern University Medical School in Miami where she was president of the Women’s Academic Fraternity. Her Obstetrics and Gynecology specialty training were at Riverside Osteopathic Hospital in Trenton, MI. Dr. Hayes received her subspecialty training at a high-intensity, inner-city facility, Hudzel Hospital in Detroit, MI and completed her professional training at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn, MI. She moved back to Pinellas County and opened private practice and has been here ever since.

As an innovative leader, Dr. Hayes was the 1st benign gyn surgeon in the area to offer and incorporate da Vinci robotic surgery into her practice, making her the most experienced benign GYN surgeon for robotics on Florida’s West Coast! Dr. Hayes is also the 1st board-certified gynecologist to bring Cosmetic Gynecology to Tampa Bay. She received her training in Beverly Hills at the prestigious Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of America by the pioneer in the field, Dr. David Matlock, of Dr. 90210 fame.

Dr. Hayes is an expert and national speaker for Vaginal Rejuvenation, daVinci Robotic GYN Surgery, Perimenopause and Women’s Health Issues.

When she finds free time in her schedule, Dr. Hayes enjoys travel and relaxing in the ‘sanctuary of calm’ that she cultivated in her backyard by way of her interest in tropical botanical gardening. she feels by creating more beauty in nature, she is applying the healing and nurturing that are components of her medical practice to create her own healthy home environment

“I see myself as a caretaker of the wellness of women that also leads them to greater empowerment regardless of their age…it is truly a magical journey.”
