Dr. Bret Hays has had a passion for medicine as far back as he can remember. As a child, he was exposed to the medical field by his grandfather, a physician in his hometown for over 40 years. Dr. Hays loved hearing about his grandpa’s work and his ability to form relationships with the families he treated. Naturally, that devotion to patient care rubbed off on a young Dr. Hays, igniting his desire to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps of becoming a physician.

Dr. Hays went on to attend medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. His desire to treat a broad range of patients later led him complete his internal medicine internship and residency training at UNMC. Today, he is an internal medicine doctor at Methodist Physicians Clinic.

The Meaning of Care means putting others in front of yourself.

Much like his grandfather, Dr. Hays is devoted to promoting the health and well-being of his patients. He loves being a part of each person's life, guiding them through the toughest of moments as well as the happiest of celebrations. His mission in health care is to have open and honest communication. Sharing honest opinions about symptoms and treatments allows for a relationship in which the patient can trust Dr. Hays will deliver the best care possible.
