What brought Dr. Bailey to Grant County? He will tell you that Grant County is a beautiful place with outstanding people. "The community comes together for celebrations like the County Fair, 62 Days, Christmas on the Prairie and Families First's Family Fun Day. They organize to support good causes and families in need with dinners and races. Our childrens' teachers take an interest in our children and are a positive influence in their lives. I have excellent medical partners that care about the people they serve. I love the mountains. We enjoy canoe rides at Magone Lake, family hikes and camping trips in the Strawberry Mountains. I enjoy the feeling of a fish on the line. I enjoy hunting in the fall and watching all of the wildlife that abounds here".
