Ratings for Dr. Dewey J. Bailey
I originally saw Dr. Bailey based on many great things I had heard about him. My main reason for seeing him was to have my thyroid levels monitored. This went well until I started noticing that he was in and out so fast I hardly had time to think about addressing any health concerns with him. He was always in a hurry. A year ago I asked him about the effects of thyroid medication or the effect of hypothyroidism on hair loss. He jokingly dismissed it, with, "Oh, you don't have alopecia." This without even looking at my scalp. I am now undergoing specialized treatment for scarring alopecia in which hair does not grow back. On my last visit, I had several questions relating to research I had done on the topic. It was obvious he did not like this and condescendingly (with a smirk) gave me short responses. I was then dismissed with the advice to stay off the Internet, accept what God has dealt me and see my family doctor for nerve medicine as he was most concerned about my emotional state. I guess a woman seeking answers for unexplained baldness is not considered a stable person. In his defense, he did order up all or most of the blood work I asked about. But I left feeling sad and so disappointed in a doctor I had much confidence in. The lack of caring, the smirking and all the good reviews in the world cannot undo the way I was made to feel at a devastating time in my life. I have a feeling that if his own wife or daughter was going through this, he would have handled it much differently. Overall, it appears that meeting patient quotas is all that matters. Such a shame for a man I once looked up to. I know he won't miss this patient at all. He's too busy to even notice or care.
