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.

I Highly Recommend Dr. Lykins
I’ve tried other ENT Doctors – only to be disappointed when I didn’t see relief for my ENT issues.
Within 15 minutes of visiting with Dr. Lykins, I felt I was in the right spot. Dr. Chris Lykins listened to me while I shared my symptoms so he could properly diagnose my issue and develop a care plan by my second office visit.
I went to several ENTs without relief, before calling Dr. Chris Lykins, and I’m glad I did. I no longer have the breathing problems I once had, thanks to the expert diagnosis and care options Dr. Lykins provided during my second ENT doctors appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Lykins.Chris U.Originally Reviewed on Yelp
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.
