Everything was perfect until he said that the steroid shot will be painless and... it was, but after 10 minutes the pain was unbearable. It took me 30 minutes to be able to drive back to work. They should tell me that before.

Dr Bayless was very professional as well as personable. He explained everything very well and answered all my questions and went through all my options. I was very pleased. As a nurse I didn't feel the wait time was unreasonable atall. It's a busy office and was run very efficiently. When you go get your car repaired or go out to eat on Saturday night, sometimes you just have to wait a bit!!

Dr. Bayless is a wonderful doctor and has been quite helpful to me in treating my arthritis. However, either the appointments are scheduled to close together or just too many are made for one time period. I had to wait almosttwo hrs. yesterday! Yes, the wait was worth it, but I could have been spending at least one hour of that time doing something constructive. The medical staff at the clinic is friendly and capable.

I was extremely pleased with the entire visit. I have been going to this clinic to see the pain management doctor for injections in my back. I had not seen Dr. Bayless in at least 10 years. He was very sympatheticand understood my complaints. He offered a treatment plan that makes me feel very encouraged. I would recommend Dr. Bayless to anyone with knee or back problems.

My appointment was just after 10 am but since it was stressed to have paperwork prior to appt time and I was unable to access the portal I arrived at 930 to complete. It was 12 pm before I was calledback after asking for my copay to be returned. The doc did not see me until 1230 and at this point it was very evident he hadn't even done more than glance at any of my documents and he didn't even know I had already done an mri let alone viewed the images I had gone out of my way to bring in with me. I was extremely dissatisfied and I will not trust anyone in this u organized office to provide any surgical care.

As a new patient my expectation was I would not wait one hour and 20 minutes before someone would call my name then greet me talking with her back to me as she walks down the hallway asking how I wasdoing today. During my wait time no one updated on how much longer before the Doctor would see me. Dr Bayless exam was a quick assessment, prescribed a treatment plan, and was off to the next patient. My impression the staff and doctor are desensitized it's about getting patients processed and out. Meanwhile I was updating my manager my 3:00 appointment would not have me return to the office before the office closed.

i really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Bayless and his PA. they were honest, very helpful, and helped me get a game plan as to how to work on the knee issue. his PA also showed concern, and i really appreciatedthat. You don't find too many PA that give great input. for some reason, the wait time was a lil over an hour, that normally doesn't happen, but once i made it back to the rooms, it flowed well. the staff was very apologetic.
