Dr. Bailey's office scheduled me in promptly and demonstrated professionalism and concern. I found Dr. Bailey's name listed in the Phoenix magazine as one of the top doctors of Endocrinology. I decided to make an appointment. She is a good listener, takes detailed notes and I found her to be a serious individual about my condition and getting it right. So far I am pleased with her as she has helped me with my metabolism, vit. D, calcium levels and thyroid issues. I highly recommended her.

I was hoping to like Dr. Bailey. The positive was that she spent a good amount of time at my 1st appointment. The thing that turned me off was that as I was going through my family history she didn't believe me that my father had a very rare adrenal issue. She wrote it off saying "he probably doesn't have that, it's really rare". Of course he has it. I am a thorough, concise individual and explained everything to her in-depth. There is no reason to doubt your patient. I will not return.

My experience with Dr. Bailey’s office has been anything but pleasant. Her consistency is that they’re always willing to schedule you 6 to 8 months out. Coming from the medical field, she has WAY too many patients to actually manage and manage well. She might want to note that when seeing patients you should probably try to remember their medical history before coming into the room. mistaking a total thyroidectomy patient for having a thyroid shows lack of knowledge of your patients...

Called today for a new patient appointment. They are scheduling new patients to be seen in December. 5 months. What a joke. This office seems to have several 1 star reviews for a very good reason.

I saw another provider in her office and I'm so glad I found them!!! I got in quickly, hardly waited in the waiting room or in the room. She took So much time listening to me and explaining everything. I did end up with a prescription which was sent to my pharmacy easily. Office staff was great! I got answers i hoped not to hear, but I loved the honest and how well she explained it all! She didn't leave out my husband.

She has excellent listening and communication skills. She is very thorough and takes time to give detailed answers in layman's terms. She explains all the options and why she is recommending certain tests and paths forward. Her knowledge about thyroid issues is extensive.

I don't take time to write negative reviews. I let others do that. But in this case, it's a social justice! Go at your own risk. Never have I seen a Dr that's more apathetic towards patients or in the way in which her staff treats them. I could've died from an adrenal crisis because of this Dr grossly undermedicating me. Thank God the National Adrenal Disease foundation warned me. I still wound up in the hospital with seizures but managed to get more meds in me in time!

Dr Bailey is a phenomenal, brilliant physician. I recommend her to pretty much everyone I know because I know that her clinical aptitude is far beyond any endocrinologist I've ever had in my past. However, the wait time at the office is AWFUL. Don't plan anything for 2+ hours after your appointment time because that's how long it takes to get out of there. Also, if you need to cancel your appt with short notice (a month or less), it takes 3-4 months to get another one:( But she's awesome!

Wait time is RIDICULOUS! I have been currently waiting over an hour to be seen and was then asked if I'd like to see a nurse practitioner instead. Really? Yeah waiting six months to see a nurse practitioner is exactly what I want. Save yourself - go somewhere else!!
