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

Dr. Bailey Made My Quality of Life So Much Better

Dr. Bailey has been my ENT for at least 8 years for three different issues.

He has performed surgery, prescribed my CPAP and treated my sinus and throat issues. All of which have made my quality of life so much better. His office is very tasteful and the staff is super friendly.

Most important is that I feel he genuinely cares about my well being.

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.

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.

My Experience Was Excellent

I was referred to Dr. Sam Bailey by my Primary Care Physician. My experience was excellent from making an appointment to being treated by Dr. Bailey.

The scheduler recommended I go to their website to print out the forms they need, so I could fill them out at my convenience instead of rushing through them in their waiting room.

When I came into Dr. Bailey’s ENT doctors office for my scheduled appointment, I was greeted very warmly and given two forms to sign. I was told there was an emergency and there would be a half hour delay in seeing the doctor.

At least three different people apologized for the delay during my office visit. Dr. Bailey, after apologizing for his delay, explained my problem and provided care for my issue very quickly. I will return if I have future need. By the way, the office is really nice.

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.
