Dr. Bell is just wonderful. He's caring, a great listener, and takes the time to simplify and explain things so my family and I can digest it. Highly recommend, and twice he's been rated Top Doctor in the list that's published in the Worcester Gazette.
In the past year I have had two emergency type situations with seizures breaking through medications. Both were grossly mismanaged by Hopedale Neurology. First occurrence was a disastrous 'front office' mess sending me to ER. The second one of yesterday I waited over an hour for an emergency appointment and no one checked up on me sitting in the room. I got disgusted and walked out. Now my appt is Thursday and probably the last one with this org. I do not recommend.

Dr Bell was fantastic- sensitive, witty, clear and empathetic. He took his time with my Dad and engaged my Mom in the meeting.

I have had some major health issues for the past 2-3 years. Each Dr. I went to refered me to another dr. No one took the time to listen to me.... until I saw Dr. Bell. he was a love not only did he take to time to really listen to me but he explained how things work. He took the time to educate me. I was so thankful to find him and I look forwsrd for the 1st time that there is hope in me feeling better

This Doctor is not educated on Lyme Disease, if you are diagnosed with Lyme Disease, this is not the doctor to see, he will send you on test to try an prove you don't have Lyme even after the blood work clearly shows you do and will disregard your Lyme disease symptoms. NOT A LYME SPECIALIST, do not waste your time, there are other doctors with much more experience with Second to Late Stage Lyme Disease.

If you have diagnosed with Lyme disease do not go to this Doctor, he will disregard your symptoms, I have numbness in my hands, trouble concentrating, memory loss, fatigue etc. and he schedules a memory test for January of 2017, almost s year away. No test for the numbness in hands which is a huge concern or any other of my symptoms. Some doctors are not educated on Lyme Disease and instead of referring a patient to a doctor who is educated they just disregard your situation. Lyme is real
Was in an out in 5 minutes after waiting an hour past my scheduled appointment, he wasn't even aware I had an MRI on file, did no test and just referred me to another doctor even though my symptoms are all neurological
