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

Dr. Bailey Made My Quality of Life So Much Better

Dr. Bailey has been my ENT for at least 8 years for three different issues.

He has performed surgery, prescribed my CPAP and treated my sinus and throat issues. All of which have made my quality of life so much better. His office is very tasteful and the staff is super friendly.

Most important is that I feel he genuinely cares about my well being.

I Appreciated Dr. Christopher Lykins’ Professionalism

I was referred to Dr. Lykins by my dentist for a parotidectomy.  I had seen another ENT doctor prior and wanted to get a second opinion.

I appreciated Dr. Christopher Lykins’ professionalism and the time he took to explain the surgery to me as well as his follow through after my surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lykins!

Pam E.
Originally Reviewed on Yelp

The most professional, caring and knowledgeable doctors I have seen in all my 68 years.

I have never met a doctor that cares so very much about the care he gives his patient. I was in management for 26 years and if I had to give Dr. Lykins an overall rating it would 150%!

Dr. Lykins Takes Pride in His Work

Scottsdale ENT Patient Review from Connie K. in Tempe, Arizona

This review is long past due. Dr. Lykins performed my partial thyroidectomy in Oct 2014. This sounds common, but it is not an easy surgery and my goiter was particularly large. Dr. Lykins takes pride in his work, he wants to do an excellent job, and he did take all the extra time in surgery that day to get it right. I have a very small scar, but did not suffer any of the possible complications from the surgery.

As is typical, I had pre and post op office visits with Dr. Lykins. He has a cheerful personality, he explained everything, answered all my questions, and he did not rush.

Dr. Lykins seems like he genuinely likes what he is doing and wanted me to have a successful experience.  At a post-op office visit the MA was busy, so he took out my last lingering stitch himself instead of making me wait.

Dr. Bailey Showed Sincere Concern for How I Was Feeling

Amanda L. Scottsdale ENT Patient

A couple months ago, I needed to see an ENT and I had called around to a couple of offices and was very pleased right off the bat by the friendliness and sincere concern offered by Dr. Bailey’s office staff over the phone. They were able to fit me in the next morning, which was fantastic!

Once I was checked in and all my new patient paperwork was filled out (very quick process) I had virtually no wait time before Dr. Bailey came in to see me. Just like his staff, Dr. Bailey showed sincere concern for how I was feeling and offered several options to ensure that my treatment fit my needs.

I’ve had to see him again for a separate issue and the staff as well as Dr. Bailey were consistent with their amazing care.
