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

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.

Dr. Bailey is an exceptional doctor in his field of expertise.

I initially went to Dr. Bailey for hearing issues, during my ENT appointment he also noticed some issues with my nasal cavities as well. He recommended septum surgery to correct my breathing issues.

It has been a year to date since the surgery and I haven’t had a single sinus infection since.

I used to get them several time a year and now I can breathe so clearly now. I sleep much better. I can’t thank him enough for changing my life for the better. Dr. Bailey’s ENT practice has knowledgeable, polite staff – I recommend their ENT medical care to anyone.

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.

Great Dr and Very Caring!

Dr. Bailey spent lots of time with me explaining my options and his nurse Nicole was just as helpful and very easy to reach when new questions would come up. After deciding surgery was the best option for me he and his nurse were very helpful and caring in the planning of this and helping me through the healing process. Thank you Dr. Bailey and Nicole for your great work!

I can finally breathe again! Dr. Bailey did a great job. Highly recommended!

I recently had sinus surgery (Jan 2014) with Dr. Bailey to fix a deviated septum, remove polyps, and to address chronic fungal sinus infection. The post op results are fantastic. Recovery time was approx 7 days. I can finally breathe again! Dr. Bailey did a great job. Highly recommended!
