    Patient Comments (2)
    in Decatur, IL |
    Incredibly rude and lacks knowledge in his field. His answer to nearly everything is a lap band and loves to belittle his patients.
    in Decatur, Ilinois |
    Dr. Bailey literally saved my life when two other healthcare providers misdiagnosed my small bowel obstruction which delayed treatment and put my life in danger. He politely but bluntly explained the options I had and I appreciated his honesty. When making the surgical incision he was mindful of a prior tattoo I had and cut appropriately. I found him to be very caring and personable. I am thankful he was my Dr for this surgery and would gladly go to him again if I had any similiar issues.
