Patient Reviews (21)
Lafayette, LA |
Being a healthcare professional, I tend to have high expectations when choosing a physician. I saw Dr. Bailey for a heart arrhythmia. I was tremendously pleased with the consult. He is a true professional. Not only was he very knowledgeable, he had a wonderful bedside manner. Due to his skill and his attention to detail, my arrhythmia has been resolved. I give him a high recommendation.
in Maurice, LA |
After more than 9 years of nerve pain and swelling from an improperly placed pacemaker, I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Bailey, who recently replaced that device, take me on as his patient. Dr. Bailey removed scar tissue and patiently untangled the jumbled leads. Proper placement of the new device by Dr. Bailey restored full movement to my arm and shoulder, alleviating the pain I had experienced for years. Knowledgeable, skillfull, personable, and professional. Great doctor and team!

in Broussard,LA |
Dr Bailey has always taken his time to explain my medical condition as well as the medical procedure he performed on me (I had a pacemaker replacement one year ago) and to make sure I understand all the answers to my questions which I did appreciate a lot as I do not speak fluently english. Along with the surgery, every visit went smoothly and my experience with him has been very positive. For these reasons, I do recommend Dr Bailey.

in Lake Charles, LA |
Dr. Bailey saved my life. I had been working with a specialist out of New Orleans for a year and he didn't help me. Three years ago, Dr. Bailey put in a pacemaker and I have been as good as new. My waiting time is always low and he makes me feel as if he will talk to me as long as necessary to answer all my questions. Wouldn't want to see anyone else.
in Scott, LA |
Was able to clearly answer the questions we had about the device to be placed into my husband.

Dr Bailey was very thorough and informative. He made sure I knew exactly what was going to happen during my procedure. He never rushed me out of the room and spent a good amount of quality time with me and my wife, answering any questions that we may have had. I would highly recommend Dr Bailey for all of your EP needs.
Always respectful and caring.
