Dr. Bailey has wonderful bedside manner, always seeming to care about me. Great sense of humor which is calming. Very knowledgeable. She didn't quite know what was going on with my back, and admitted it, sending me to get an MRI. She called with results the very next day. I really enjoy working with her and even sent my husband to her.

July 27, 2020 1:37 PM

June 19, 2020 12:00 AM

Dr. Bailey and her staff were wonderful.

June 16, 2020 2:06 PM

I felt confident in safety measures in place to protect me from coronavirus exposure.

June 16, 2020 2:06 PM

Called me when I arrived to tell me they were ready for me. Not a lot of patients in waiting room. Very sanitary conditions.

June 16, 2020 2:03 PM

Dr. Bailey is always on time and efficient with pre-surgical screenings and exams and tests

Very good.

May 11, 2020 2:51 PM

the staff did an incredibly good job given the covid-19 threat. the office was very clean, and the screening went quickly. i felt very comforted by their efforts.

May 11, 2020 2:51 PM

unfortunately, this provider is verbally awkward. for example, she made a joke about hand sanitizer causing cancer to me, a cancer patient. totally inappropriate! she needs to think about how her comments sound before she speaks.

May 9, 2020 6:39 AM

Dr. Bailey spent a lot of time with me discussing my options about and side effects of the medication to be prescribed. She is thorough and caring!

May 6, 2020 8:08 AM

Due to Covid the visit was by phone. Dr. Bailey was kind & funny as usual. Before I could even get everything out she said, "Sounds like you have a case of strep again, LOL." I swear she knows me better then I know myself. I love the way Dr. Bailey really listens and is so reassuring. Excellent dr. the world would be blessed to have many more like her.

May 5, 2020 9:56 AM

it was a very good experience. Dr Bailey mentioned coming back in 3 months when/if corrintine is over for a face to face visit and blood work.

April 27, 2020 4:29 PM

Dr Bailey is the best doctor I've ever had. She listens to me, takes her time with me, makes me feel very comfortable and does not talk down to me. I don't know what I'm going to do when she retires, because I know I won't find a doctor as good as her.

April 27, 2020 4:29 PM

the staff are also very friendly and helpful.

April 23, 2020 9:56 AM

Helpful, courteous.

March 29, 2020 4:00 PM

The entire Morton Grove office is excellent. Everyone from the management team, receptionist, Medical Assistants and Dr Bailey are welcoming, helpful, and courteous. They answer all questions without hesitation. Never make you feel rushed or that your being annoying!! Dr Bailey takes the time to discuss and explain all medications and the benefits of taking them or changing as needed. She followed up within 24 hours with my lab results. Receptionist greedy me as I walked in the door. Everyone within the office is always friendly and greet you with a smile.

March 29, 2020 4:00 PM

I have nothing but positive things to say about the entire office. Again I feel they all go above and beyond for you. I have recommend Dr Bailey to multiple friends along with Advocate Medicsl Group.

March 28, 2020 6:58 AM

I always enjoy my visits with Dr. Bailey. She and her staff are very open and friendly. No rushing and always listening to what you have to say.

great experience!

March 21, 2020 10:53 PM

I was happy that I was seen and treated fairly quick but I was disappointed that I was told that I had a lot of earwax but was not offered to have them flushed out. I was offered a suggestion of ear drops to buy at a drug store but it was never written down and given to me.

March 21, 2020 9:41 AM

Dr. Bailey is just the best ever! I'm glad she is my Dr.

March 21, 2020 9:38 AM

I have been with Dr. Bailey for about 30 years, so she know me really well. She knows my eating and exercise routine. We even belong to the same gym and see her there once in a while. Love Dr. Bailey!

March 21, 2020 9:38 AM

She give me all the time I want.

March 20, 2020 6:22 AM

Very good and relaxing one.

March 17, 2020 10:56 PM

I like Dr. Bailey. She is an expert clinician and gives feedback. She listens to what I say and then tells me why it might not be a good idea.

March 16, 2020 3:55 PM

Great doctor but wish the office was cleaner and location was more modern.

March 14, 2020 3:43 PM

Drive 200 + miles when seeing Dr. Bailey. Been going to her for years.

I lost my husband in Nov. 2019. Dr. Bailey knew this and we talked about his, she made me feel better.

February 20, 2020 11:00 PM

I was very happy with both of my physicians and the staff.

February 18, 2020 5:25 PM

I find Dr. Bailey to be the ideal doctor. She is calm, competent and clearly up to date on illnesses. I'm very lucky health-wise and haven't had too many issues. When I do, she explains things so that I can understand. I only take one medication and she prescribed a generic form for me, so that was good. I'm very happy with her.

Dr. Baily is always on top of things with my father's health. She is good about voicing concerns with treatment and understands that he is 93 years old and has limitations. She has navigated us through 2 years of a stubborn skin condition that is finally under control.

have a great rapport with Dr. Bailey

January 2, 2020 7:22 PM

provider great-appointment made 3 months in advance and the week before, the office called and cancelled it stating that thepersonthat made the appointment for me did not allow enough time for an annual exam visit. i had to take a day off of work and go to a different location in order to be seen in 2019. i made the appointment 3 months in advance so i did not have to take a day off and could be seen in 2019. i think improvement is needed with making appointments-you also have to wait on hold for a long time before speaking to someone

December 31, 2019 12:14 PM

I felt very comfortable with her and would highly recommend her to anyone of my family and/or friends.

December 24, 2019 12:33 PM
