ENT Doctor Ratings & Reviews: What Our Patients Have to Say About Our Care

Singing Praises For Same Day Appointments and Speedy Recoveries

Wonderful! Got me in same day and was very helpful. Dr. Bailey worked specifically with me (as a singer!) in my situation to help me recover as speedily as possible.

Dr. Lykins receives my highest accolades.

On meeting Dr. Lykins for the first time – he was extremely knowledgeable, thorough in explaining the issue and treatment options, all the while answering any questions and making me feel very comfortable. Never did I feel rushed.

Dr. Lykins is very skilled surgeon. He performed a hemi-thyroidectomy on me and the incision site is barely visible. Since Dr. Lykins is also a board certified Plastic Surgeon, that should come as no surprise.

It was easy to get an appointment and Dr. Lykins should pride himself on running on time without keeping you waiting. In addition, all the office personnel that I interacted with, either in person or over the phone, were courteous, helpful and prompt in returning phone calls if necessary. I am so impressed with Dr Lykins and his office staff that I have already referred a relative to his practice and would recommend that others seek out his expertise as well.

Best ENT Doctor in the world!

Dr. Lykins is the BEST doctor I have ever been to and I am almost 70 years old. He diagnosed me correctly and after 5 previous surgeries, he FIXED my problem after being told I would “just have to live with it”. I would recommend him to anyone.

If you have a severe sinus problem this is the doctor for you! I really don’t think I could have survived much longer without your skill and the genuine care you gave to me. Thanks to you I have my life back.

I Could Not Have Been More Pleased with Dr. Bailey

This review is for ENT care services I received over a year ago.

I had a very severe ear infection that spread to the bone, and was referred to see Dr. Bailey. My General Practitioner called on my behalf, and they got me in for an appointment that same day. It was very complicated, and I was in his care for a few months.

I could not have been more pleased with Dr. Bailey. He was so kind and genuinely worried about my overall health and care. He went above and beyond what any other doctor ever has to ensure I was treated properly. I saw him numerous times, and he was honest, straight forward and treated me like I was a member of his family.

His office was beautiful, and his staff was always kind and his appointment times were reasonable.

I would recommend Dr. Bailey for anyone. I’m lucky that I was referred into his office and I owe him my ability to still hear! Thank you!!

If you are thinking about getting your gauged ears sewn up – definitely see Dr. Chris Lykins.

Scottsdale ENT Patient Review from Jason F.

I am really late in writing this review (like a year) – Dr. Lykins, please forgive me 🙂

I had 1-1/8″ gauges and then I decided to get a real job, so I needed to get my gauged earlobes sewed up.  Dr. Lykins was really friendly, confident and knew exactly what he was doing.  The procedure was not only painless, but he put on a cool “chill” playlist – so we were listening to music and having a conversation the whole time. Dr. Lykins even let me (don’t get grossed out) film the procedure on my phone, so I was able to see everything as it was happening (maybe not your thing).

I found out that a friend of mine was a keynote speaker at an Ear Nose and Throat medical conference, so I brought up Dr. Lykins to him to get an “inside perspective”.  This friend of mine is a well-respected ENT doctor, and had nothing but great things to say about Dr. Chris Lykins.  So there you have it – from both the bottom (patient) and top (fellow ENT expert doc) of the healthcare “totem pole”.

Now, a year later, when I share with new friends that I used to have gauges, I actually have to show old photos to these new friends before they’ll believe me.  Without a doubt – if you are thinking about getting your gauged ears sewn up – definitely see Dr. Chris Lykins.

Enjoy : )
