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

Great Dr and Very Caring!

Dr. Bailey spent lots of time with me explaining my options and his nurse Nicole was just as helpful and very easy to reach when new questions would come up. After deciding surgery was the best option for me he and his nurse were very helpful and caring in the planning of this and helping me through the healing process. Thank you Dr. Bailey and Nicole for your great work!

Schedule Your Next ENT Appointment with Dr. Bailey

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! 😛

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 – then 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.

First Time in My Adult Life I Can Breathe Through the Right Side of My Nose

After two other surgeries to fix a breathing problem, Dr. Lykins knew exactly what to do, walked me through the whole deal and his technique was spot on. Finally for the first time in my adult life I can breath through the right side of my nose without a breathe right strip. Thanks Dr. Lykins, great work!

Dr. Lykins Is Extremely Thorough

Phoenix ENT Patient Review from Kelly V.

I’ve known Dr. Christopher Lykins socially for several years.  When my Allergist told me I needed to see a ENT doctor and that surgery on my head or neck was probably inevitable – I broke my rule of not hiring friends for care or services.

Dr. Lykins was extremely thorough – walking me through my CT scans to show me what was going on. He also took the time to share important details to help me understand what my surgery would entail and what I could expect as I recover from surgery.

Dr. Lykins and his helpful staff were able to schedule my surgery relatively quickly – which was a relief, because I was required to continue antibiotics until I could get this particular ENT procedure done.

My surgery was yesterday, and as far as I can tell – it went great.  My post-surgery pain levels are surprisingly low (about what it was pre-surgery – which is exactly what Dr. Lykins said I could expect.

It’s too soon to tell how successful this will be in addressing the chronic ENT illness issues I have had for a long time, but all in all, the overall patient experience was great.  I would highly recommend Dr. Lykins and his staff for their expert ear, nose, and throat medical care.
