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

If you are thinking about getting your gauged ears sewn up Рdefinitely 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 ūüôā

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 : )

Dr. Bailey did my thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer a little over a year ago. I had a great experience with him! He did a fantastic job, I only have a very small scar. Anytime I was in the office he would take the time to answer questions and explain everything thoroughly. I NEVER felt rushed or that he had limited time to spend with me.

I can finally breathe again! Dr. Bailey did a great job. Highly recommended!

I recently had sinus surgery (Jan 2014) with Dr. Bailey to fix a deviated septum, remove polyps, and to address chronic fungal sinus infection. The post op results are fantastic. Recovery time was approx 7 days. I can finally breathe again! Dr. Bailey did a great job. Highly recommended!

Scottsdale ENT Doctor Review from Young C.

This review is for my 2/25/15 visit at the North Scottsdale office off of Scottsdale Road and the 101. I was here last year as a new ENT patient, and my experience was positive, so I have returned this year for another ear, nose and throat condition that I was suffering from.

I saw Dr. Samuel Bailey both times –¬†he has great bedside manners with positive energy and is always smiling. ¬†I hate grouchy doctors! ūüėõ

Dr. Bailey answered all of my questions, and I didn’t feel like I was being rushed. Most doctors offices usually have their Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioners¬†do all the work, and you only see the actual doctor for 5 minutes tops, but Dr. Bailey gave me his full attention, was super friendly and kind. ¬†He explained things using language I could understand –¬†thoroughly enough for a child to understand – AND still had time to answer my questions.

I have not seen other ENT doctors that work here, so I can’t speak for them, but Dr. Bailey has been one of the kindest, caring and considerate physicians I’ve dealt with and I highly recommend him for all your ear, nose and throat care needs.

Bottom line:  If you need to see an ENT specialist in Scottsdale and want to see a doctor that will actually listen and pay attention to you explaining your symptoms, who is very kind and caring Рthen schedule your next ENT appointment with Dr. Bailey.

This patient’s nose knows that no pain after sinus surgery is worth a party.

I had a sinus surgery and had no pain after. Surgery on Wednesday and went to a party on Saturday.
