No Scars and Both Function and Aesthetics are Better Than I Ever Thought Possible
Dr. Chris Lykins did both a septoplasty and rhinoplasty for a congenital malformation. The surgery went extremely well and I experienced very little pain or discomfort. There are no scars and both function and aesthetics of my nose are better than I ever thought possible.
Dr. Bailey Made My Quality of Life So Much Better
Dr. Bailey has been my ENT for at least 8 years for three different issues.
He has performed surgery, prescribed my CPAP and treated my sinus and throat issues. All of which have made my quality of life so much better. His office is very tasteful and the staff is super friendly.
Most important is that I feel he genuinely cares about my well being.Jeff L.

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
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
