Wayland, MA |
I've been under Dr. Bailen's care for a decade or so and couldn't be more pleased. He is exceedingly polite and professional. Top notch in his filed and a great listener to boot. Spends all necessary time to ensure I've got the information I need. Great practitioner and diagnostician. Hard to beat.
