ENT Doctor Ratings & Reviews: What Our Patients Have To Say About My Care

Dr. Bailey Listened to Our Concerns

Matthew S. - Scottsdale ENT Patient

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!

Dr. Bailey Successfully Treated My Laryngitis

Dr. Bailey successfully treated my laryngitis that I had for three weeks before seeing him. He patiently listened to me and then reviewed my treatment options before prescribing medication.

AMAZING… Already Feeling Better

Went for chronic sinus infections. A week after surgery already feeling better. Dr. Bailey is by far the most caring doctor I have ever met.

I will definitely go back to Dr. Bailey if I ever have any other ENT issues.

Dr. Bailey did my thyroidectomy for thyroid cancer a little over a year ago. I had a great experience with him! He did a fantastic job, I only have a very small scar. Anytime I was in the office he would take the time to answer questions and explain everything thoroughly. I NEVER felt rushed or that he had limited time to spend with me.

100% Happy with Sinus Surgery from Dr. Bailey

Great experience in relation to my sinus surgery. He was able to fix a problem caused by another specialist and I am 100% happy with the outcome. Dr. Bailey comes highly recommended by me.
