Dr. Bailey is the epitome of the perfect doctor! She has an incredible breadth and depth of medical knowledge that allows her to quickly assess any problems I have and order any required lab tests. She knows medications, side effects, options.... She asks questions and listens to me, and she can also explain and inform me. She´s quick and competent with VM computer and messaging systems -- they don´t get in the way of our communication during office visits, and she uses them to quickly communicate test results to me. Most of all, she cares about me as a patient and works with me to maintain my health. She´s hands down the best primary care doctor I´ve ever had.
