"Dr. Phyllis"


Phyllis E. Hayes-Reams MD, MPH, MA

Founder/CEO, PEHR Ministries LLC


Welcome!
Some call me "Dr. Phyllis." Some call me "Dr. PHR." And others call me "Phyllis."  My life journey has included over 25 years of experience in medicine, ministry, and leadership. With a background in Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine, it  has been my honor for the past 19 years to be a Hospice/Palliative Medicine Physician. This work has allowed me to align my career with a love of people, and a wish to be of service to others.  I have a passion to help Christian Hospice/Palliative Medicine providers to achieve their best in spiritual, emotional, and physical wellness in our faith in God through Christ. I have experienced my share of life's ups and downs.  I am a spouse, mother, daughter, sibling, friend, minister, physician, and community volunteer.  I know the emotional turmoil caused by trying to be "everything to everybody."  I also understand feeling stuck because life has thrown you a curveball out of left field.  The kind of curveballs that leave you in a fetal position in bed, knowing that you have to keep living, but don't know how. I have developed the tools to navigate life's bends and curves in a way that I am able to live my most authentic life right now -- and "keep it moving." Life is adventure, an awesome adventure of turns, dips, and highs.  I'm here to be your coach, your cheerleader, your thought partner as you dream big dreams to continue to grow, dream, and implement your goals.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. "(Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)
I look forward to the opportunity to join you on your journey.
