Dr. Bell said I needed total colon removal and a permanent colostomy bag, there was no other option. I got a second opinion and had a colon resection with a good surgeon and only a temporary colostomy bag for a month. Dr. Bell did not care what my quality of life would have been like if I had taken his advice. He also likes to remove lymph glands whether necessary or not. Ask a patient who has to live permanently with lymphadenopathy what their lives are like. He doesn't care.
Dr. And staff need to listen more appropriately to patients concerns. Made a surgery decision and dual surgery that could have been handled in office. When called for follow up, staff didn't listen to patients concerns. Felt uneasy at lack of concern for patient and more concern for $ office visit.
Had Colonoscopy done. Very professional, courteous with an excellent beside manner.
Took time to listen to my concerns and my previous experiences with proceedure. Have seen him for three different things and always had good outcome. Staff is excellent.
