Great Staff. Great Doctor.

Great staff. Great Doctor — Had tonsils removed. Could not have asked for a better experience.

Caring and Competence

I was brought to Dr. Bailey on an emergency basis and found the level of caring and competence to be superior. The office and support staff were very professional and full of genuine concern. Carrie, Dr. Bailey’s assistant, was very hands-on, telling us of any delay and keeping us informed on all details of my case.

The Dr. took me the same day that I called for an appointment and was very professional and calming. The office went out of their way to set up the surgery quickly and were able to get biopsy reports much quicker than usual.

Thankfully, all was well, and our gratefulness to Dr. Bailey, Carrie, and their staff is boundless. These are wonderful, caring, and competent professionals and you are in very good hands.
