Professional, Calm and Welcoming
Dr. Bailey never gave me the impression that my appointment time was limited. He was thorough in explaining his diagnosis and did not push me into making decisions on the spot, but rather gave me time to evaluate my options. He and his staff were professional, calm and welcoming.Our ENT Patient
I would certainly refer anyone to Dr. Lykins.
I had sinus surgery without any problems. Not even any packing!
Nice bedside manner and seems really concerned when you explain what is going on with your health.
Thank you again Dr. Lykins!
Singing Praises For Same Day Appointments and Speedy Recoveries
Wonderful! Got me in same day and was very helpful. Dr. Bailey worked specifically with me (as a singer!) in my situation to help me recover as speedily as possible.Our ENT Patient
Fine Hands and Good Accuracy
I had septoplasty to rebuilt another septum that I had 18+ years ago. Turn out much less painful than what I recalled originally. I can breathe and my eyesight is improved upon.
Overall, the doctor has fine hands and good accuracy with a couple of stories to make you feel fine. Good luck and enjoy, you will be fine.Our ENT Patients
If you are thinking about getting your gauged ears sewn up – definitely see Dr. Chris Lykins.
I am really late in writing this review (like a year) – Dr. Lykins, please forgive me 🙂
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.
