Dr. Bailey is an asset to Stanford dermatology and I hope she is treated as she deserves. I will ask for her again.
One of the most outstanding physicians I have encountered over the years. I feel so fortunate to be Dr. Bailey's patient.
Dr Bailey is the best! She is kind, caring and compassionate while being incredibly thorough! She is a wonderful physician who should be acknowledged for the great care she is providing to her patients.
Outstanding in all regards. Called and sent message later to follow-up before I even expected. Incredibly thorough and concerned.
Dr Bailey is outstanding. she is thorough and takes great care of me.she is also kind and caring!
Dr Bailey was superb in explaining the procedure, making sure all my descriptions of the issue were listened to, and answering my questions. She also put me at ease.
I liked Dr. Baileys of conducting a thorough search of my skin ailments
You probably don't pay her nearly what she is worth. A real pro.
Dr Bailey and Resident were very helpful and listened to my concerns. Exam was very thorough. they were able to recommend further treatments for my concerns.
My doctor listens well and explains well so that I understand.
Awesome care by Dr. Bailey - really caring & skilled!
Dr. Bailey in Dermatology has incredible bedside manner and always ask if you have any additional topics you need to address. I'm grateful to have her as my provider!
Dr. Bailey is outstanding!!
dr Bailey is very caring and explains treatment.
very good dr
Appointments do seem to be rushed, but the doctor was nice and answered all my questions
Dr Bailey is very attentive and spend the time I need to help me understand what is happening as I age. I very much appreciate her knowledge and manner when working with her.
I'd recommend that whole clinic. Even the phlebotomy department was on the ball.
Dr. Bailey is an amazing doctor, in the work she does, her explanations, her concern, and how she educates the others in the room with her. She showed so much care and made sure to ask if I had any questions or concerns. I am happy to see that she is training med students and residents because we need more doctors like Dr. Bailey. I wish she was a primary care provider because I would love to see her on a regular basis.
seemed to be bothered I was there. unwelcoming. kept asking "is there anything else" in an unfriendly monotone as if there was not she would leave and had nothing to say to me. I would not see her again. found her very unfriendly.
Exceptionally comprehensive care recommendations by Dr. Bailey over the past 2+ years.
Dr. Bailey was wonderful!
I have the BEST experience everytime I come for a visit!
Dr. Bailey was efficient without hurrying, listened to and answered all my questions, gave me options for the issue, recommended time frame for ongoing care.
All of the staff, led in particular by Dr. Bailey, were exceptionally professional, courteous, caring, and informative - in terms of discussing the problem as well as at each and every step of any testing or procedure. I cannot imagine how anyone could do better.
Maybe I would have liked a little bit more explanations, but I found those afterwards in the notes of the visit online. The doctor also went over some cosmetics I had brought and gave me some helpful information on them.
Really like her..
Dr. Bailey was extremely accomplished and Knowledgeable. Yes, I was quite impressed when she asked my permission in making decisions. Although I went in fear and a lot of skepticism during my first visit, I was quite relaxed by the second visit since I saw the results of the treatment and improvement in my situation. She had almost nailed the diagnosis. Of course I am following her advise to the T. Thanks Dr. Bailey and team.
Dr. Bailey is excellent at explaining problems.
Outstanding. Very caring and provided professional care.
she empowered me with information, answered all of my questions, and never felt rushed. I appreciated the care and attention I got and feel confident about the decisions I made for my own care after she gave me all of the pros/cons of all of my options. I feel lucky to have found her.
This was the first time I've seen this dermatologist, and would've expected a little more time spent in discussing my history. The visit felt a little rushed, although she covered the bases adequately.
Very good.
Dr. Bailey is all I could ask for. Please don't lose her.
Dr. Bailey is a wonderful person and a great doctor.
Dr Bailey is great. very thorough and spends an appropriate amount of time explaining my issues.
Dr. Bailey is a wonderful doctor
dr Bailey is amazing. she is knowledgeable and caring!
Best dermatologist I've had in 40+ years.
She forgot to give me a list of places where I could go and get skin masks removed.
Dr. Bailey is amazing.
good service
I've seen dr Bailey 2-3 times in past 18 months. I feel that she knows me and knows why I'm there. she quickly addresses my issue.
Dr. Bailey is a wonderful doctor, thorough, professional and kind.
Dr Bailey is excellent
Very helpful, concerned, and displayed confidence in her decisions. Made me feel that she knows exactly what she was doing. Great Doctor
Skin examination was done very fast compared to prior dermatologist experiences that took at least twice the time with pictures taken of specific areas for future reference.
Dr. Bailey is an excellent physician. She's warm and caring; her treatment plan was effective and clearly communicated. Not a clock watcher, she asked if there were other skin issues she could help me with. I will definitely recommend Dr. Bailey to others and seek her care should I need it in the future.
I am especially grateful that Dr. Bailey does not make any negative comments about the sorry state of my skin as I have recalcitrant cystic acne. I often come in wearing make-up because I cannot bare to be bare-faced in public and that doesn't seem to bother her. I just wish there was additional effective treatment for me. She also scheduled my normally 3 month appointments and labs to 6 months which I also appreciate.
All good!
She is great... Really like her..
capable and caring doctor. Fifteen minute appointments seem a little ridiculous though.
Dr. Bailey is a wonderful physician and I can't say enough about how thorough and conscientious she is in helping me with my health and skin issues.
I would recommend Dr. Bailey except for the very limited days she works (i.e., one day a week next year).
I really liked Dr. Bailey and the other doctor who saw me. Personable and kind. I felt in good hands.
It was my first visit and I came for a skin check. There was very little said before the exam and the doctor took a VERY quick look at my skin. I was out of the office within 6 minutes. I don't know if it was a good exam.
Fast and efficient
Dr. Bailey is a VERY good Dr. and was able to give me a complete and detailed acct. of what skin problem I am experiencing. Very comfortable with her diagnosis and treatment.
Dr. Bailey is thorough and professional, as well as very efficient. She is clearly extremely knowledgeable and took time to ensure that I understood everything. She is amazing!
The entire experience has been very satisfactory. Overall, I feel like I'm dealing with a younger team of professionals, which I think I am to expect. Depending on the seriousness of my situation or another that I'm giving a reference to would weigh on my reference decision.
I was exceptionally impressed by the doctor's behavior of continually asking for my permission to examine my body.
She is great...
Everything was very good. Thank you.
All good!
Very thorough and positive visit and experience
Dr. Bailey is great.
Dr Bailey is excellent
I have already recommended a few family members to Dr. Bailey.
Dr Bailey is very professional, thorough and complete in her examinations. She removed my first pre-cancerous spot last fall and I trust her to check on me regularly so we may catch anything else early.
Excellent care by Dr. Bailey
Dr. Bailey seems like a very caring and knowledgeable human being. I felt very safe being under her watch for my first visit and I really look forward to having her be my guiding physician again in the future.
dr Bailey is the best!!!great doctor and wonderful bed side manner!
I received excellent care from the doctor, the NP and the other providers.
Appointment was a little rushed, doctor wasn't the most friendly and seem hurried
very thorough and explained everything well
Even with problematic diagnosis following PDT, competent and thoughtful patient care.
Dr. Bailey is a good physician.
I have nothing but confidence in this "team"
Physician was very rushed and seemed not that interested in my concerns. Disappointed as I had been looking forward to this appointment for months!
Dr. said she would give me instructions on treating dry skin, but I never got them. She said my scalp was fine, but didn't examine it.
Everyone was very kind and considerate.
I think Dr. Bailey is a good dermatologist and I have seen many. Unfortunately, I have a problem not easily fixed, but she has gone out of her way to help me.
PDT is not an easy medical procedure. The RN was very competent and compassionate. Thank you
This was my first visit to this facility. From parking (on arrival), to leaving - everyone I encountered was helpful and friendly. I felt very good about the visit.
The doctor'd demeanor was very impersonal. She asked me if I have any diseases' which was an odd way of asking if I have any new breakouts. When I checked out at the lobby, she walked out to get coffee and didn't acknowledge me which I thought was odd, which is why I describe her as impersonal. Maybe she was having a bad day. I also had to ask the lobby to ask the nurse which descriptions in the Visit Summary printout pertained to which issue I discussed - the Summary was printed in medical terms which is not easy for patients to remember the terms the doctor used.
First time meeting Dr. Eliz. Bailey via an 'emergency' appointment. Very pleased with all aspects of this visit. I'll be choosing her as my dermatologist now.
Care provider was running late with the whole schedule and seemed rushed.
I'm very satisfy and will introduce this place to my friends.
This was my first visit to this doctor and it was a routine exam. Our interactions were cordial but pretty straightforward. It was a pleasant and straightforward visit.
Dr Bailey is great...
I've been seeing Dr. Bailey for a few years now and have so much respect for her practice. She is incredibly knowledgeable and always performs a thorough skin check. She keeps detailed records of our visits and I feel confident in her care knowing that she'll treat anything that needs treated but won't overtreat for benign conditions. She is a compassionate prodvider and I can't imagine visiting anyone else for my dermatologic care.
dr Bailey is outstanding
First time with Dr. Bailey. Will be seeing her again. Very complete exam. Really liked her.
This was only my second visit with Dr. Bailey, but she has been timely and courteous both times. She has answered questions I have had.
My experience with the doctor was probably the best experience I've ever had with one. I was dreading the procedure at first, but she immediately put me at ease and did a great job
all good.
very Professional
Everyone I met with was great! Courteous, helpful, informative; it was a great experience in spite of getting a biopsy.
I had asked for a generic prescription, however, a brand was called into the pharmacy.
Very good care.
Dr. Bailey is impressive. She has a very appealing manner and appears to be very knowledgeable. She has improved a sun spot on my face through light freezing which 2 previous dermatologists did not suggest, so I am grateful to her for that.
Quick visit could have easily been a phone call. But it was helpful
Very sincere and capable care-giver
Comforting and excellent care.
Dr. Bailey is an outstanding physician. She is world class! For me she has been a God-send.
Dr, is very efficient and knowledgeable.
Very impressed with Dr Baily
Dr. Bailey is an exceptional doctor = one of the best in the world!
Dr Bailey made an excellent, thorough exam, unusually attentive.
Dr. Bailey was excellent. She explained everything carefully. She took her time but was efficient. She worked well with her medical assistant.
She is fabulous.
Dr. Ko is an amazing dermatologist. I usually see him for my routine Derm Care. I am very happy with all of the help he has provided, and feel similarly about Dr. Badger, her NP, and Dr. Bailey I recently saw there. They are attentive to my needs, kind, patient, and supportive.
she was so gentle. I hardly felt anything
Dr. Bailey was delightful -- very informative and reassuring.
very rushed visit with a seemingly indifferent care provider, who seemed in a huge rush and impatient for my short visit to be over. positive she seemed competent and did a thorough skin check.
Both the physician and her nurse assistant fulfilled all these categories at the highest level.
I am a cardiologist from Dartmouth and Johns Hopkins. I am so happy I met a resident, medical student and attending. Since leaving Hopkins I have seen some less than meticulous docs. Hiwever this team was wonderful, meticulous and absolutely thorough! I was so glad a medical student watched all this. I wish I had emphasized that others cut corners-to a patient's peril. please pass on my thanks to all members of this team.
This is regarding 2nd visit with Dr Bailey, yes?! She is terrific!
Dr Bailey was chipper, quick but thorough, and attentive to all my concerns. She is great at explaining everything. Her "bedside" manner is perfect. Have recommended her to friends already. Well done and thank you!
I am a former EMT and I understand medical terminology very well, and she picked up on that, so it was good not being talked "down to."
Visit was great.
felt hurried
Dr. Bailey is outstanding!
Doctors were great. Understanding and helpful. Great team.
very thorough exam, educated well about issue and corrected it promptly
very knowledgeable anf professional
MD was matter of fact, caring and to the point. Resolved my concerns quickly and pleasantly.
I had to ask for details on my planned treatment but otherwise all was good
My test results should have been back to me in one day but the doctor only gave them to me after I had emailed and then phone her for results. 4 DAYS LATER.
Dr. Bailey seemed just a tiny bit scattered--but I am a complicated patient. I did manage to figure out all my instructions for where to get the labs, and what kind of dosing I would be on (high or low dose/long term), and later found out that I would be required to come in monthly. The nurse did a decent job of walking me through the 'I pledge' which has changed since I last took 'Accutane.' She had to call later to get the registration number off the information packet--but I don't mind that. I don't think she will forget next time. ;-) When I told her I had my whole exome sequenced, she mumbled something about a genetic multiple syndrome which might be related to my problem, but departed before I could inquire more. She seemed in a hurry--but I can understand if she didn't want to leave other patients waiting--especially as she normally practices in Palo Alto.
I kind of felt like she was in a hurry. She did everything right and I don't really have any complaints about the service she provided- it was just really quick and I think I would have liked her to sit down and ask me if I had any questions at the end or asking me questions about myself instead of standing the whole time. I also would have liked her to ask me if I wanted the mole/growth I came in to have examined removed or not just to open the discussion a bit
Dr. Bailey provides excellent care! She is methodical in her approach to skin checks and takes the time to provide education about skin cancer prevention. I felt reassured after having been in her care. Hands down, this was my best visit to the dermatologist. I would recommend her to any friends or family members!
Dr. Bailey & her assistants were wonderful.
Dr. Bailey is a caring, very smart, calming person. It is easy to trust her.
By far the most thorough exam and the most compassionate and informative doctor.
This was one of the worst experiences I've had meeting a new doctor. Her overall demeanor was detached and bored.
Dr. Bailey took time to listen to my concerns.. I was impressed that she listened to me, instead of typing on a computer while " listening ".
My local dermatologist could not help. Dr. Bailey was very helpful and very courteous. The treatment still continues and it shows good improvement so far. I am quite satisfied till now.
both the residents and attending were great
This was my first visit with Dr. Bailey and my first experience with Stanford Health in general and it was an overwhelmingly positive visit. Dr. Bailey was very kind, friendly, and made me feel comfortable.
Dr Bailey took her time and answered all of my questions.
Doctor was in and out! I felt like I was in her way and she had better things to do. Very cold and dry during the whole interaction. It's okay to smile sometimes.
Clearly the best, most thorough dermatological exam I've ever had! Had 2 exams at our former provider that now pale by comparison. Wow!
Dr. Bailey contradicted my earlier derm., Dr. Ko, and I am now more confused than ever about my medications.
Care provider showed concern for my health and provided excellent care.
I understand that I am making the appointment to voice my concerns, but I wanted some more info about how to maintain/achieve great skin , I felt I had to keep driving the conversation.
Dr. Bailey was all I might ask.
