Back in 2012 after a couple of months in hospital and rehab I seen him on a xmas eve as a 1st follow up after release from a ileo surgery. maybe he just hated being in the clinic on xmas eve but he was extremely rude to the point of barking. Thank God he was not my actual surgeon. very curt an brief and really didn't care. no I would not let him near me again even to save my life. he should retire if he really hates the patients.

Dr. Bailey

Dr. Bailey diagnosed my problem, told me about the surgery and what he might have to do during surgery. He saw me every day I was in the hospital as well as his staff stopping by to see me daily. Asked me if I had questions and was pleased with the results of the surgery on follow-up. I look forward to seeing him for my next follow-up. His nurse, residents and staff have all been so good to responded to my questions or concerns. I know I'm in good hands with Dr. Bailey. Thank you.

He saved my life that is all I can say several times. His bedside manner is curt but professional. This helped me get through some of the roughest moments throughout my treatment.

Rudest doctor I've ever met

This doctor does not listen to you when you talk about your symptoms. He insulted my husband's specialty while examining me and my husband is a doctor. He probably hasn't seen a case that interests him in years and treats all the ones he sees exactly the same. The doctor that referred me to him told me that everyone complains about how rude he is but that he does good work. I for one am not going to return to his his office for more verbal abuse.
