Dr. Bailey treated me on Feb. 18 2020 for an ear disorder. I was treated with the utmost respect and concern. He and his staff were considerate and caring. My wait time was a minimum 10 minutes. I would recommend Dr. Bailey to others

I saw Dr. Bailey about chronic sinus infections, ear infections and headaches. After allergy screening, he recommended a balloon sinuplasty. The procedure was done in-office with oral meds for pain. It went very well. The recovery time was brief and with little discomfort. My outcome was excellent. I have little to no congestion and the few headaches I have don’t seem to be sinus-related. I recommend Dr. Bailey without reservation.

I Have a disease called Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. I had experienced several emergency trips to the hospital for severe nose bleeds. There I was recommended by a nurse to Dr. Sean Bailey. At my first visit I found him to be friendly and very knowledgeable. After approximately three visit I have been free of nose bleeds for the past two months and still counting. I would highly recommend anyone to him.

I’ve only had one visit so far with Dr. Bailey and have found his entire staff to be knowledgeable, efficient, and great bedside manner. He listens to what is important to me. I saw his audiologist the same day and had a videostroboscopy within a couple of days. Looking forward to resolving or relieving my symptoms very soon.

Dr Bailey has been treating me for many years. He is always professional, attentive with my concerns and is very experienced. I had sinus surgery in 1999 for a deviated septum by a different ENT and even though I needed that surgery, it didn't fix the entire problem. Dr Bailey was very quick to jump on the innovative balloon sinuplasty procedure because it was an non-invasive procedure that gave high possibility of major results. After he performed the balloon sinuplasty, it has been a complete turn around with chronic sinusitis. Before the procedure, I would get sinus infections about 4 -6 times a year, after the procedure that took place in 2015, I've had maybe 2 in the last 4 years and not nearly severe as it used to be. I'm so glad Dr Bailey suggested this procedure and there was no downtime from it.

Dr. Bailey treated me for a deviated septum on May 30, 2019, and he was a consummate professional in every regard: listening, surgery experience, results. I am almost healed now, and my life has changed due to now being able to breathe freely out of both sides of my nose. He explained the steps along the way, so I rarely had additional questions to pose. I couldn't be more thrilled with the results, and I recommend him without reservation.

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
