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.

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 not only an outstanding physician but he is an exceptional human being. The care and attention that he provides is A1. He listens, doesn't rush the patient, and cares very much for the welfare of his patients. He should be cloned!!!
