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.

Dr. Bailey made such drastic and WRONG adjustments it threw me into a thyroid coma that took 6weeks to recover from. Lost 2/3rds of my hair & gained 20lbs!! DO NOT GO TO Dr. Bailey

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!

I have been a patient of Dr. bailey's for over 15 years . She has a big job with me and my diabetes ! She is an amazing dr. And truly cares for her patients ! Her staff is also very helpful. I would highly recommend her to others , once you get in to be her patient you won't want to go anywhere else ??

Dr Bailey answers my questions before I even ask them. She cares , listens and spends as much time as needed,I don't feel rushed.I recommend 100%,the best doctor in her field.

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!
in Phoenix, az |
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!!
