Dr. Chris Lykins Took the Extra Time
I saw Dr. Lykins and thought he was very professional. Dr. Chris Lykins took the extra time needed to answer any questions and he was very friendly – he also took the time to check up on me at the hospital the day after my surgery.
The scar left after my surgery with Dr. Lykins was very small and other medical professionals have commented on how good it looks.
Their helpful ENT office offers new patient forms right on their website, so you can fill out prior to your visit – which is great way to save time.
The biggest surprise was the refund I received because I was overcharged for my surgery. The office probably could have kept the amount which was over $100 and I wouldn’t have known.Paul O.Originally Posted on Yelp
Schedule Your Next ENT Appointment with Dr. Bailey
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.Young C.Originally Reviewed on Yelp
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!!Shannon P.
So Pleased and Would Recommend to Anyone

Dr. Chris Lykins is one of the finest Doctors I have dealt with.
Dr. Chris Lykins is one of the finest doctors I have dealt with. He took on a problem with a growth in my nose that no one else would deal with. Because of my heart condition the growth had to be removed under local anesthesia. He saw the problem, scheduled the surgery and removed the growth (which turned out to be cancer). I had been dealing with this painful problem for over 6 months. It is absolutely worth any distance to travel to get this type of excellent treatment.
