Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
Dr. Baylis performed carpel tunnel surgery in May 2016. I have since healed scar less, painless, and can resume my normal duties as a Motor Truck Driver. Dr. Baylis has a great patient caring manner. He is prompt on his appointments, and is willing to spend time explaining procedures and potential results. If you need a surgeon, don't hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Baylis
