SHC Patient, Sep 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr. Bailey is a wonderful doctor, thorough, professional and kind.

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

Dr Bailey is excellent

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Very helpful, concerned, and displayed confidence in her decisions. Made me feel that she knows exactly what she was doing. Great Doctor

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

All good!

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

She is great... Really like her..

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

capable and caring doctor. Fifteen minute appointments seem a little ridiculous though.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

I would recommend Dr. Bailey except for the very limited days she works (i.e., one day a week next year).

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

I really liked Dr. Bailey and the other doctor who saw me. Personable and kind. I felt in good hands.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

Fast and efficient

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Jun 2019

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!

SHC Patient, May 2019

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.

SHC Patient, May 2019

I was exceptionally impressed by the doctor's behavior of continually asking for my permission to examine my body.

SHC Patient, May 2019

She is great...

SHC Patient, May 2019

Everything was very good. Thank you.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Very thorough and positive visit and experience

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

All good!

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Bailey is great.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr Bailey is excellent

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

I have already recommended a few family members to Dr. Bailey.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

NA

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Excellent care by Dr. Bailey

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

dr Bailey is the best!!!great doctor and wonderful bed side manner!

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

I received excellent care from the doctor, the NP and the other providers.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Appointment was a little rushed, doctor wasn't the most friendly and seem hurried

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

very thorough and explained everything well

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Even with problematic diagnosis following PDT, competent and thoughtful patient care.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Bailey is a good physician.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Excellent!

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

I have nothing but confidence in this "team"

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Physician was very rushed and seemed not that interested in my concerns. Disappointed as I had been looking forward to this appointment for months!

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Everyone was very kind and considerate.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Outstanding

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

PDT is not an easy medical procedure. The RN was very competent and compassionate. Thank you

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Care provider was running late with the whole schedule and seemed rushed.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

I'm very satisfy and will introduce this place to my friends.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr Bailey is great...

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

dr Bailey is outstanding

SHC Patient, Oct 2018

First time with Dr. Bailey. Will be seeing her again. Very complete exam. Really liked her.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

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

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

all good.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

very Professional

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

Everyone I met with was great! Courteous, helpful, informative; it was a great experience in spite of getting a biopsy.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

I had asked for a generic prescription, however, a brand was called into the pharmacy.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Very good care.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

Quick visit could have easily been a phone call. But it was helpful

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Very sincere and capable care-giver

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Good

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Comforting and excellent care.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr. Bailey is an outstanding physician. She is world class! For me she has been a God-send.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Very impressed with Dr Baily

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr, is very efficient and knowledgeable.

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr. Bailey is an exceptional doctor = one of the best in the world!

SHC Patient, May 2018

Dr Bailey made an excellent, thorough exam, unusually attentive.

SHC Patient, Apr 2018

Dr. Bailey was excellent. She explained everything carefully. She took her time but was efficient. She worked well with her medical assistant.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

She is fabulous.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

she was so gentle. I hardly felt anything

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Dr. Bailey was delightful -- very informative and reassuring.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2018

Both the physician and her nurse assistant fulfilled all these categories at the highest level.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

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.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

This is regarding 2nd visit with Dr Bailey, yes?! She is terrific!

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

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!

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

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."

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

Visit was great.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

felt hurried

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr. Bailey is outstanding!

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

Doctors were great. Understanding and helpful. Great team.

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

very thorough exam, educated well about issue and corrected it promptly

SHC Patient, Nov 2017

very knowledgeable anf professional

SHC Patient, Oct 2017

MD was matter of fact, caring and to the point. Resolved my concerns quickly and pleasantly.

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

I had to ask for details on my planned treatment but otherwise all was good

SHC Patient, Sep 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

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

SHC Patient, Aug 2017

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!

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Dr. Bailey & her assistants were wonderful.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Dr. Bailey is a caring, very smart, calming person. It is easy to trust her.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

By far the most thorough exam and the most compassionate and informative doctor.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

This was one of the worst experiences I've had meeting a new doctor. Her overall demeanor was detached and bored.

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

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 ".

SHC Patient, Apr 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

both the residents and attending were great

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr Bailey took her time and answered all of my questions.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Clearly the best, most thorough dermatological exam I've ever had! Had 2 exams at our former provider that now pale by comparison. Wow!

SHC Patient, Mar 2017

Dr. Bailey contradicted my earlier derm., Dr. Ko, and I am now more confused than ever about my medications.

SHC Patient, Feb 2017

Care provider showed concern for my health and provided excellent care.

SHC Patient, Jan 2017

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.

SHC Patient, Dec 2016

Dr. Bailey was all I might ask.
