Ratings for Dr. David Bayley
Dr. Bayley turned my poor health around. I could never thank him enough. Because of him and his wonderful staff his office is one of my "safe places" I find him knowledgeable and informative. He is prepared to go over things until I understand them, which I don't always on the first go round. I found him to be scientific in his approach when investigating my issues He has an efficient and friendly front desk person.
my family and I have used Dr. David Bayley for 19 years, and are very pleased, none better. We use as prescribed because he has done the research. Dr. Bayley is a testimony to his Doctorate as he still does mountain biking at +63 years. He always explains when asked.
Dr. Bayley is my "go-to" physician for all my health needs. His depth of knowledge and understanding of the big picture directs my personal health care strategy. Great tips to connect me with other specialists, as needed. He'll tell you the truth, even if it is sometimes tough to hear. I trust him with my life, completely.
I am a male, 63 years of age. Dr. Bayley has proven both VERY knowledgeable and very informative/explanatory on issues I have gone to see him about over the last few years, primarily being adult onset asthma, joint issues (he was originally trained in sports medicine) and thyroid. On average he gives a half hour of his time each visit (he gave me close to an hour the first time around). He has an efficient and friendly front desk assistant and a dispensary for natural supplements. He is now also certified to prescribe certain pharmaceutical drugs. Apparently he has some level of high standing in the inner echelon of the naturopathy fraternity, but I can't remember what. I highly recommend seeing him at least once to see if he is a good fit for you.
I found him be arrogant and lacking understanding of weight gain and female problems. I also thought he was a pretty good sales man - selling me stuff that I didn't really need. I wish I had checked with friends first. I have since learned of two of my friends who also only went once or twice. He is authoritative and if that's is more important to you than finances or listening skills you will like him otherwise you probably won't.
Dr. Bayley was treating me for progesterone deficiency. He and my GP combined put me on the low dose of progesterone taken every day that was a HUGE mistake. After 3 months I hadn't improved and my periods stopped. Dr. Bayley suggested decrease the dose of progesterone that was wrong also. I changed to an MD who specializes in hormone replacement therapy, she put me on the higher dose of progesterone taken cyclically and my condition improved dramatically. My cycle restored to normal within 6 months
He did a good job in making a diagnosis, however, wasn't able to handle my condition. I was on an overdose of Isocort for more than 3 months and wasn't noticed. After prescribing a cortisol raising supplement a follow-up tests was never ordered to check if the dose was correct. When there was a rise in my blood sugar he indicated it could be diabetes that was not the case. I was lucky my GP checked my cortisol level and found it was the reason for my high blood sugar. Dr. Bayley was convinced that my migranes are due to food allergies and was mistaken. I was getting migranes on the day 12 of my cycle and around ovulation. Tests showed that I was not producing enough progesteron. When I achieved the optimal levels of progesteron with bio-identical hormone my migranes stopped. After spending thousands of dollars for supplements and visits and one year time and still being unable to function, I finally received qualified help elsewhere and back to work after 2! months
I have been a patient of Dr. Bayley on and off since 1989. He is very knowledgeable and I find him very scientific in his approach when investigating your issues. He never makes a snap judgment, always having clinical evidence to back up his recommendations. He is anxious to educate as well as treat his patients, which makes his care that more lasting, and have found his methods lead to optimal health where the traditional medical system has either given up on me or failed. The level of his service is only complimented by the excellent support he gets from his staff, who go the extra distance to make sure that patients are well cared for. I have told him if I ever end up in the hospital for any reason, I would call them before my GP as they knows me much better and I feel would be of more help. I freely refer friends and family that I care about to him. It is the best gift I could possibly give them.
