Dr. Belin is such an amazing colorectal surgeon. He's well informed on the most current and innovative approaches in colorectal surgery, and does such a thorough job of explaining the procedure he will be performing. He recently performed my mom's colon cancer surgery, and did such a wonderful job that I wanted to take the time to ensure that others knew of his skill and expertise. Additionally he has a terrirfic bed-side manner which eased mom's worries. I highly recommend him!

Great Doctor, knows his stuff, but if you are on Medicare and can't afford your co-pays and bills he will drop you like it is nothing. We all know Medicare pays them enough, these Doctors want to get rich off poor people like us and if we can't afford them then they say find another Doctor . He did surgery on me two years ago, I couldn't afford to pay him I'm on a lot of medicines and have a lot of bills and could not pay what medicare did not cover, got sick again and he has refused to see me.

Charged me extra fee for a second service during the same office visit for same issue. Seems like he adds anything he can to jack up his income from the exam.
