Postdoctoral fellowships included: Fellowship in Neurology (G. McCann) with emphasis on neuroimmunology and multiple sclerosis at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and Fellowship in Neuromuscular Disease (D. Drachman) with emphasis on pathology of muscle and nerve, and neurophysiology. Following completion of his studies at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Bailey became an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Albany Medical College of Union University, Albany, New York, where he taught medical school for six years. Here he was also Director of the Muscular Dystrophy Clinic at the medical college.

His interest in neuroimmunology has prompted him to continue to publish even in the private sector. He is an active member of the Multiple Sclerosis and Critical Care Sections of the American Academy of Neurology, Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers, American Committee on Treatment and Research in MS, and the California Medical Association. Dr. Bailey is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Neurology and Psychiatry (N) and is Board Certified. He is a Fellow of the Stroke Council, American Heart Association.
Dr. Bailey is specially trained in neurophysiology and offers expertise in all aspects of neurophysiology: EEG, Evoked Potential testing, and Electromyography and Nerve Conduction testing. His practice is open to all
facets of neurology including: headache (including use of Botox for migraine), abnormal movement disorders, stroke, seizures, all forms of dementia with special emphasis on muscle and nerve disorders and multiple sclerosis. He has had grant research in MS, ALS, and neuromuscular disease.
