Dr. Lykins Takes Pride in His Work
This review is long past due. Dr. Lykins performed my partial thyroidectomy in Oct 2014. This sounds common, but it is not an easy surgery and my goiter was particularly large. Dr. Lykins takes pride in his work, he wants to do an excellent job, and he did take all the extra time in surgery that day to get it right. I have a very small scar, but did not suffer any of the possible complications from the surgery.
As is typical, I had pre and post op office visits with Dr. Lykins. He has a cheerful personality, he explained everything, answered all my questions, and he did not rush.
Dr. Lykins seems like he genuinely likes what he is doing and wanted me to have a successful experience. At a post-op office visit the MA was busy, so he took out my last lingering stitch himself instead of making me wait.Gloria D.
Dr. Bailey Listened to Our Concerns
I had sinus surgery with Dr. Bailey back in November of 2012. My family and I expressed concern over certain procedures that were listed for the surgery because we felt they may be too aggressive.
Dr. Bailey listened to our concerns and even approached the surgery more conservatively because of them. Dr. Bailey had to spend more time in surgery because of this, but his willingness to listen to and address patient concerns shows what a thoughtful and caring doctor he is!Matthew S.
I really like Dr. Lykins!
I have visited Dr. Lykins 2 or 3 times, and he is really kind and friendly. I will have him as my primary doctor for nose / allergy issues. No doubt.
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
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!Our ENT Patient
