We met at 2:30 in the morning when I found myself in the hospital. Since I was awake, he greeted me and spent time talking, setting me at ease and clearly explaining everything -and this is after he'd spent a very long day in surgery and had to be back at it at 8. The respect, care, and concise explanations he provided won me over and he's surpassed it in all our subsequent hospital and office appts and 2 surgeries. He's not only an excellent surgeon but also a great person. Highly recommend

Dr Bello was exceptional. I have had 5 surgeries and this one was quite different. The surgery itself was without any problems so i did not need any painkillers after the procedure. The bruising was almost nothing and I was moving around easily the following day. He is calm, gentle, attentive and answered all questions in an understandable way. I never felt rushed and felt completely understood. I interviewed and got many recommendations and i chose him. So glad I did. Feeling grateful!!!!!!!!!

I had Acid reflux complication for a extended period of time and came to see De.Bello since my old Gastro just wanted me to continue taking PIP pills. Dr. Bellow was able to perform the Linx surgery after seeing me and after the operation no more coughing. I felt like a new person.

Dr. Bello is my earth angel. I can't say enough good things about him. He will treat you as if you were his own family. He genuinely cares about his patients. He is kind, genuine and humble. He gave me the best quality care and always checked up on me. His staff are also like family. They truly care about you, and the quality of your life. I honestly believe that this practice should be the example of what quality health care in America should be patterned after. God bless you and your staff!!!

We have been very pleased with the level of care found in Dr Bello's office. Scheduling an appointment is easy and the staff is always pleasant and helpful. The office is quite clean and comfortable for the short wait time. Dr Bello is extremely knowledgeable and always takes the time to listen to and answer all questions. As we were so please with the care he gave my husband I am going to him for my surgery as well.

He removed a normal gallbladder , as the pathology revealed no cholecystitis. In addition the repeat X ray done during surgery again revealed normal functioning gallbladder.. Also he wanted to send me home right after surgery, even though I was in pain and was not able to urinate. Accordingly I had to insist to stay overnight, since I needed a catheter to be placed overnight until I was able to urinate the next morning PS . I wrote him a letter about this but I did not even receive an answer

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!

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.
