I would like to thank Dr. Bailey and his Staff with the continuous support during my post cancer follow up appointments. I've never seen a Staff who can contiguously maintain professional and friendly manner, especially on "very busy" days...They are truly outstanding! Most importantly, I can't say enough about Dr. Bailey. He lead the charge during my life changing experience, and I thank God everyday for this Doctor who saved my life.

My Primary Care Physician diagnosed me with what appeared to be an Alien size tumor growing inside my sinus cavity and referred my to Dr. Bailey. I made the appointment (Great Staff) and met Dr. Bailey (Very Cool Guy). He concurred the growth was large, but couldn't confirm it was an Alien... However, it was he was he was confident he could get it without a Light Saber... Long story short, my sinus cavity is Alien free! So to all of you who are looking for an ENT, this Doctor is Awesome!

I was given a referal to Dr. Bailey, by an Asthma doctor, after being misdiagnosised with having Asthma. Seeing Dr. Bailey, I was told that I had Tracheal Stenosis. I was scheduled for a Biopsy, ended up having a Trach. Never saw anyone come to his office with a trach. After having gone to him several times, several surgeries later, Dr. says that I may have taken Trach out to soon, SAYS he would order a CT Scan. After waiting a week, called the office...NO CT SCAN ever ordered. Called back, asked for it again...given same response. (will order) AGAIN..NEVER DONE. Although first experience was great, I feel that after loosing my insurance Dr. Bailey forgot about me. I am STILL without scan or call from office. Still unable to breathe. Would just have liked to have been treated fairly, and told why no one cared enough to check on my condition. Seeking another doctor and opinion. Saddened by this treatment. Staff was excellent..Dr. NOT. I only wanted fair treatment. Disappointed.

The attitude of all the staff that I came in contact with was very poor. They seemed to be bothered that they had to do their jobs. They were rude and unhelpful. I had a long wait before seeing the doctor. I don't fault him for that. But after the long wait, he spent less than 3 minutes with me & was very curt & impersonal. Also there was little information about my condition & treatment given to me. I'll find another ENT

Absolutely the best bedside manner, his staff is friendly and thorough, and I never leave without my questions being completely answered. I never feel like Dr. Bailey is in a rush and is always concerned with making sure I understand everything. Have referred friends and family and they feel the same way!

Dr. Bailey operated on my nose. I am pleased with the results. I can breath properly for first time in years. He took the time to make sure all my questions were answered before and after the surgery.

Dr Bailey is one of those rare doctors that has both a keen intellect and a compassionate heart. His passion for his field and his passion for his patients are refreshing. I've seen him many times over the years, have referred my family and friends to him, and we've all felt the same way--one of the best doctors we've ever been to.

I recommend Dr Bailey to everyone! Dr. Bailey is excellent with children. He has removed my child's tonsils, placed several sets of tubes etc. Dr Bailey has cared for our entire family and all of our loved ones. If you are looking for an exceptional ENT who truly cares for his patients, look no farther.

Dr. Bailey is extremely professional in all aspects of his business. Everything that I have gone to him for, has been taken care of immediately. He diagnosed my ear infection immediately and provided me the correct medicine. Thank you for being an amazing doctor!

Dr. Bailey cares for my entire family. This office is very professional and gets you in and out. All of the staff members make you feel very comfortable and they listen to any concerns you may have. He’s very knowledgeable, and very friendly. He also makes sure he follows up.

Dr. Bailey is a great person and always has time for as many questions as needed. His "bedside manner" is top-notch professional.

I'm floored by these poor reviews of Dr Bailey and his staff. They are so far from the truth. Dr Bailey has cared for me and my Family for many years. He is not only professional, he's caring, attentive,thorough, and compassionate. He's cured my sinusitis and nasal airway obstruction,helped my husband with what we now know is LPR (reflux) and performed tubes on my little ones. I would not trust another ENT with the care of my family. If you want personalized care,with results call Dr Bailey!
