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
Dr. Bailey is an exceptional doctor in his field of expertise.
I initially went to Dr. Bailey for hearing issues, during my ENT appointment he also noticed some issues with my nasal cavities as well. He recommended septum surgery to correct my breathing issues.
It has been a year to date since the surgery and I haven’t had a single sinus infection since.
I used to get them several time a year and now I can breathe so clearly now. I sleep much better. I can’t thank him enough for changing my life for the better. Dr. Bailey’s ENT practice has knowledgeable, polite staff – I recommend their ENT medical care to anyone.James R.
Help With Ongoing Ear Problems
I was totally delighted to have an amazing doctor help me with ongoing ear problems. Dr Bailey’s nurse was very comforting to me and both the doctor and nurse most compassionate and explained to me exactly what to expect from the diagnosis. Indeed I could not expect a better physician in this field. Thank you to all for you help and ongoing assistance.
Dr. Lykins Is Extremely Thorough
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.Kelly V.Originally Reviewed on Yelp
Dr. Lykins was my final hope after suffering several years from previous misdiagnoses. This wonderful, patient, man gave me a life that is now livable, but most importantly proved that “the cream always rises to the top” the best is to be tasted and God gave me the chance to taste the best. So my friends, seek comfort and see this great doctor.
