Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My mother went to Dr. Bailey for a hernia operation. After surgery, he told us everything went well. The next day she became very sick. We took her to another hospital, and the medical team found out that Dr. Bailey never even performed the surgery. On top of that, he cut her colon and, as a result, she developed sepsis. To anyone reading this, please stay away from this doctor. He has brought nothing but pain, hurt an suffering to our family. I would not want anyone to experience the nightmare that Dr. Bailey has done to our family.

Fact: He operated on my husband for hernia surgery after a 10 week recover.....he still had a hernia... He operated on him the second time and still had a hernia.....Dr. Baily did not know why......He referred him to another General Surgeon. I would NOT recommend this Doctor for anything........His wait time in his office is really bad.....our appt was at 4:15.....we did not see him till 6:15... All this is factual information......I hope this helps you find..... a real Doctor.
