Dr Bello prior to ever seeing me came to my side after hours and not on call. He saved me from a long stay in the hospital. Now I am his patient and am amazed with his knowledge, skill and patient centered care. My son has a complicated issue and after meeting Dr Bello one time has hope for the first time in a long time. I recommend Dr Bello and his staff 100% Robin

You will not find a more caring and skilled surgeon as with Dr. Bello. He has done a few surgeries on myself and family. Finding a surgeon that is as skilled as he is along with the best bed side manor is rare. I will only go to him for any surgery I need. Trust him completely!

Dr. Abel Bello. An extraordinary Doctor, but more so an extraordinary human being. Dr Bello performed my very successful surgery recently. Doctors normally rely on their staff to follow up on the procedures before and after. Doctor Bello is extraordinary because he follows personaly. He is great surgeon. His contribution to my life, physically and emotionally is nothing short of Magical. Thank you Doctor Bello.
Hi superior knowledge is beyond the scope of any doctor I had seen in the last 3.5 years. I had been suffering with severe reflux and constant vomitting. He figured out what was wrong with me while other doctors told me I was overeating, gluten intolerant, and a bevy fictional ailments . 15 days postsurgery, I am GOOD AS NEW! Dr. Bello is an incredibly gifted surgeon. His bedside manner goes beyond the norm. He responds all phone calls, speaks clearly, and holds your hand every step of the way.
