    Excellent-saved my vision

  • May 09, 2019

    Dr. Bailey is a kind and great doctor. I have faith in his knowledge, and care of my eye problem.

  • May 09, 2019

    Dr. Bailey was very thorough and explained that the condition of my macular degeneration seemed to be stable and there was no change from my last visit. As I understand it, the treatment being followed presently seems to be keeping the disease from deteriorating and he explained that it was best not to change anything because he did not want to do anything to cause problems with my glaucoma treatment.

  • May 09, 2019

    It has always been good.

  • May 09, 2019

    Caring and informative.

  • May 09, 2019

    I sat in the exam room for 30 minutes before anyone noticed that I was not seen. Dr Bailey walked in and offered no explanation or apology. He had an intern with him to observe and take notes. I'm merely guessing here as he was not introduced to me. As per normal, it was the typical horrible bedside manner specialist doctor encounter.

    My appointment experience was very long and tiring.Between the time I arrived and when I was finished 3 1/2 hourshad passed. The waiting room was very busy.I was called 3 times for 3 different procedures.That's a lot of waiting. I was becoming hypoglycemic.Blood sugar was down to 45. I needed some nourishment.Quite an experience.Don't want to do that again!

  • May 04, 2019

    Routine checkup performed adequately.

  • May 02, 2019

    He seemed knowledgeable - and most importantly he listened. ....

  • Apr 26, 2019

    Always good

  • Apr 26, 2019

    My first visit, and it went very well. I had a long wait, but life happens!

  • Apr 26, 2019

    I've been very happy with Dr. Bailey and all of the assistance there.

    Hi, I had a 2 p.m. appointment and I showed up and sat there and sat there and sat there and nobody came out to see me. So finally my husband went and said something and they finally took me in and sat me down and I sat and sat and sat and eventually another doctor came in and I don't remember his name and he said Steve Bailey will be in in a few minutes, but he asked me if I would, you know, take care of the initial exam and I said, okay and he did and then he said you'd be in in a few minutes then he left and then he never ever came in. It was almost 5 o'clock, I think and and I finally stuck my head out the door and he was standing in the hall with other people. I said, excuse me, I've been here hours and I have to leave, I have to go back to Salem, my husband is waiting for me. And he finally came inside, sat down, spent 5 minutes with me and he's the one but I was referred to by Dr. Boyer at OHSU. Specifically to see Dr. Bailey and he just couldn't get in to see me I guess.

  • Apr 24, 2019

    I have been under his treatment for a number of years now. He is good at what he does

  • Apr 24, 2019

    My conditions are improving

  • Apr 24, 2019

    Dr. Bailey is probably a very professional person and he basically has saved my eyesight in my left eye from macular degeneration I appreciate him very very much.

  • Apr 24, 2019

    Dr. Bailey is a fantastic doctor. He was...he's been very honest up forward with me concerning my (INAUDIBLE) generation, and I will continue to see him as long as I possibly can. Thank you.

  • Apr 24, 2019

    I don't think I could haven't had an experience better than I have had every time I've been to Steven Bailey. Hey, yes clarity. Hey covers everything he listens well. Is just one of the best providers I've ever experienced.

  • Apr 22, 2019

    The provider is absolutely wonderful. Just my experience with getting... a shot in the eye because of macular, I am just wondering... about my eyes being completely red bloodshot for two weeks after a shot. So, that's my only concern.

  • Apr 22, 2019

    [Name] I've had Dr. Bailey take care of my eyes for a period of time. He's excellent and all the help he brings from [Name] to (INAUDIBLE)..is great. I appreciate em all they've been real good, thorough, and very considerate of me cause I'm an older person, 95 years old. I've been getting excellent care from the whole group. Thank you.

  • Apr 22, 2019

    Amazing doctor. Actually, we appreciate it and he's got a lot a lot a lot on on the we feel so confident on the appreciation go to the doctor.

  • Apr 19, 2019

    He checked my eye and gave me a shot and the eye has improved from 5 weeks ago. I like him and his demeanor and that of his staff

  • Apr 19, 2019

    I've been seeing Dr. Bailey for probably the last 6 years and he's a great doctor and a great person and I'm very, very pleased with him., but he kept me waiting last time an interminable amount of time. I mean, hour and a half, 2 hours and it was unnecessary and I finally went up to the desk and asked them what's happening and oh, got the standard remark, oh, you're next, you're next, so they took us next and we sat in the examining room for better part of an hour and there's no excuse for that. If you can't schedule things a little tighter than that, fine, but, you know, the patient's time is valuable too. I know the doctors time is valuable, but mine is too, so that's what I feel. What do I press now?

  • Apr 18, 2019

    Very likely. Great doctor

  • Apr 17, 2019

    Excellent

  • Apr 17, 2019

    He answered our questions.

  • Apr 15, 2019

    Dr Bailey was so patient and kind throughout the visit. I was very impressed and confident in his ability to ferret out my discomfort and resolve my issue quickly. I was not disappointed. Although he had just come from doing an emergency procedure I felt he was not distracted and could easily focus on my problem. Although I hope I do not need emergency care in the future, I would count myself lucky if I again drew the Bailey card......Thank you so much.

  • Apr 13, 2019

    My husband [Name] has some challenges versus mobility and he has dementia and Dr. Bailey's office has been very very kind and very good and willing to help us out where we kind of get a streamlined process and they accommodate accommodate my husband [Name] very quickly and very, gently and respectfully, so I appreciate that.
