Dr. Bailey is a Good, Caring Doctor
Dr. Bailey is a good, caring doctor and would refer him to my friends and family. Thanks for checking out my review!!Monica C.
Dr. Lykins receives my highest accolades.
On meeting Dr. Lykins for the first time – he was extremely knowledgeable, thorough in explaining the issue and treatment options, all the while answering any questions and making me feel very comfortable. Never did I feel rushed.
Dr. Lykins is very skilled surgeon. He performed a hemi-thyroidectomy on me and the incision site is barely visible. Since Dr. Lykins is also a board certified Plastic Surgeon, that should come as no surprise.
It was easy to get an appointment and Dr. Lykins should pride himself on running on time without keeping you waiting. In addition, all the office personnel that I interacted with, either in person or over the phone, were courteous, helpful and prompt in returning phone calls if necessary. I am so impressed with Dr Lykins and his office staff that I have already referred a relative to his practice and would recommend that others seek out his expertise as well.Our ENT Patients
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
I Appreciated Dr. Christopher Lykins’ Professionalism
I was referred to Dr. Lykins by my dentist for a parotidectomy. I had seen another ENT doctor prior and wanted to get a second opinion.
I appreciated Dr. Christopher Lykins’ professionalism and the time he took to explain the surgery to me as well as his follow through after my surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Lykins!Pam E.Originally Reviewed on Yelp
Dr Bailey Truly Is a People Person
Dr. Bailey took about 20 mins with me because I had a lot of questions. He was very nice and funny – I like that. Instead of just offering surgery right away, Dr. Bailey suggested some additional testing. Thank you for treating my sinus infection.Our ENT Patient
