My mother went to Dr. Bell years ago when she was operating as a GP. My mother was depressed after my step dad had died of cancer (my father died five years prior). She went to Dr. Bell and described symptoms of depression, even crying. Dr. Bell callously wrote her a prescription, handed it to her and ended the appointment. The prescription read Get out of the house. This unprofessional attitude is inexcusable. Dr. Bell clearly has no empathy for her patients or understanding of depression.
Dr. Bell does not like being questioned. She has poor bedside manner and often says things that she quickly forgets re patient's health. Please try somewhere else before it's too late.
