Pre-op exam and labs, etc. I have been going to Dr. Bailey for years. She is a physician who is an advocate for her patients. She provides the good care in most times that I have seen her. This visit, she talked to me about my upcoming surgery for Lumbar fusion. She educated me and gave me permission to take my time recovering - listen to my body and that it is a 'rough (my words)' surgery to recover from. She educated me on medications to discontinue and when prior to surgery and why. She discussed my heart condition and added several notes to be shared with the medical team including surgeon's office and hospital staff during pre-op discussion with nurse. We discussed labs that needed to be completed for the surgery and those that were due and should be checked as well, per my request (thyroid, Vit. D, etc.) for issues that are ongoing. Dr. Bailey called me the next morning to go over the results of my labs with me (all with great results) - we discussed seeing her in the hospital which she will not be doing.

I have had visits with that office where I feel that I have not been listened to - especially with complaints about my legs over the last several years, which turned out to be all related to my back. All in all, the staff is good, friendly and efficient. Any web portal questions that I have for Dr. Bailey's office are answered in less than 24 hours - I appreciate that. Regarding my pain management doctor who I have been seeing since March, he is really good - I appreciate him and the time he has spent with me, listening to me and my questions. This office however, lacks in organization and quality of attendance to the needs of the patients. I have called and left messages numerous times to be called back without hearing anything. I have been shifted from person to person on the phone with eventual no one helping me. My pharmacy had issues getting a narcotic refilled for me because the office never responded to their multiple fax requests over a 2 week period. I needed to call during a time that I knew that they would answer the phone and be transferred to the nurse just to have to leave a message and they will call back within 48 hours. I have never, ever had that experience in my life... that office needs an UPGRADE!!!
