Patient Comments (3)

I really respect Dr. Bailey. He is very knowledgeable and will answer any questions or concerns you have about your eyes. The wait time can often be a bit long, but when you see the doctor, he takes the time needed to do a thorough exam. He doesn't rush you out the door.

This was a horrible experience. I had to wait an a hour and a half for the appointment. it was really cold day but the air conditioner was on. the doctor must be 100 years old. and very snarky . he seems totally incompetent. the office staff is so unprofessional in his Greenville and Albany office....more
