Dr. Chris Lykins Took the Extra Time
I saw Dr. Lykins and thought he was very professional. Dr. Chris Lykins took the extra time needed to answer any questions and he was very friendly – he also took the time to check up on me at the hospital the day after my surgery.
The scar left after my surgery with Dr. Lykins was very small and other medical professionals have commented on how good it looks.
Their helpful ENT office offers new patient forms right on their website, so you can fill out prior to your visit – which is great way to save time.
The biggest surprise was the refund I received because I was overcharged for my surgery. The office probably could have kept the amount which was over $100 and I wouldn’t have known.Paul O.Originally Posted on Yelp
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
Dr. Lykins’ Bedside Manner is the Best I Have Ever Experienced!
I recently moved to the Scottsdale, AZ area and during the move took a fall, which subsequently led to being diagnosed with thyroid cancer. My experience with Dr. Lykins and his staff has been phenomenal!
I was seen right away and the testing, diagnosis and surgery was seamless. Additionally, my scar after only five weeks, is almost invisible!!! It’s the envy of several of my friends who have surgery scars 🙂
Dr. Lykins bedside manner is the best I have ever experienced! This condition also led to an FMLA situation for my husband who was deployed to Afghanistan and Stephanie, Dr. Lykins’ nurse, completed the requisite paperwork quickly and efficiently without so much of a follow up phone call needed. I can recommend Dr. Lykins and his staff without hesitation and if given the opportunity would not change a thing regarding my experience. They made an unfortunate and scary situation a breeze for me and my family to deal with.
