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!Our ENT Patient
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.Our ENT Patients
Caring and Competence
I was brought to Dr. Bailey on an emergency basis and found the level of caring and competence to be superior. The office and support staff were very professional and full of genuine concern. Carrie, Dr. Bailey’s assistant, was very hands-on, telling us of any delay and keeping us informed on all details of my case.
The Dr. took me the same day that I called for an appointment and was very professional and calming. The office went out of their way to set up the surgery quickly and were able to get biopsy reports much quicker than usual.
Thankfully, all was well, and our gratefulness to Dr. Bailey, Carrie, and their staff is boundless. These are wonderful, caring, and competent professionals and you are in very good hands.
Dr Bailey Truly Is a People Person
Dr. Bailey took about 20 mins with me because I had a lot of questions. He was very nice and funny – I like that. Instead of just offering surgery right away, Dr. Bailey suggested some additional testing. Thank you for treating my sinus infection.Our ENT Patient
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.
