Jocelyn Hayes, M.D.

I like to meet families where they are, which sometimes means families want a lot of advice and guidance while other times they do not. I always work to ensure my patients are safe, healthy and thriving. Pediatricians love to watch kids grow, but it is equally enjoyable to watch how parents evolve with their children, especially when there are new additions to the family.

Growing up in Kirkland, Washington, and the oldest of five children, I spent a lot of time as the leader and babysitter. My childhood was spent playing sports, swimming, going on long bike rides and roaming the neighborhood which was full of kids.

I decided I wanted a career in the sciences in high school. I fell in love with biology because of Ms. Chowning, my first biology teacher. She showed me women could be kind, cool AND good at science. In high school and college, I coached soccer and swim team and was a swim instructor, I always enjoyed working with kids and families. For a brief moment in college, I considered being a marine biologist after working with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins for a semester in Florida, but switched gears and entered medical school, knowing I wanted to be a pediatrician.

My husband and I have two active young boys who are into soccer, baseball, Legos, and family movie nights. I enjoy spending time in the garden growing our own vegetables. I also love to cook and hope to learn to play the piano someday.

I share my practice with Dr. Cigdem Toroslu.

Shared Practice

Cigdem Toroslu, M.D.

Every patient has a primary pediatrician. Sometimes, especially for last-minute appointments, your pediatrician may not have available appointments, so our pediatricians partner with each other to reduce wait times and improve access to care. Additionally, they partner with someone that complements their style and brings a fresh perspective to their patient’s care.
