Radiologist Dr. Louis Bailey is a relatively new addition to the staff at FMDH. Having extra training in all types of MRIs, he specializes mostly in neuroradiology and musculoskeletal radiology. "Everything walks in through the door here. From mammograms, to broken legs, to brain tumors, I've seen all of those in the six weeks I've been here."

Dr. Bailey began his education with an undergraduate degree from Southern Utah University. From there, he attended medical school at Kansas City University of Medicine and Bio-Sciences, where he also did his clinicals. Dr. Bailey's next move was to Trenton, Mich., where he and his family lived for five years while he completed his internship and residency with the Oakwood Health Care System. He then attended a MRI Fellowship program at Michigan State University before taking the position in Glasgow.

When asked about his recent move to our town, the doctor was quick to mention that he loves Glasgow. The small-town hospitality reminds him of being a kid in Nephi, Utah, where his family had a farm and raised cattle and horses.

"The people here are very nice," Dr. Bailey added, "and it's nice to have people wave when they drive past, even if they don't know you. It's good to be able to take off the blinders and notice people as they drive by. You get out of that when you have been in the city, like I have for the last 10 years."

The doctor and his wife Sheridy have five children between the ages of five and 13, and they are expecting a sixth child. His family enjoys the town as well because they can hop on their bikes and go anywhere without causing any worry.

Dr. Bailey also noted that Glasgow is greater than the sum of its parts when it comes to population. The town itself is small, in other words, but the doctor considers the area to be a busy one. "Glasgow is a great place to live," the doctor added, " and a great place to practice."
