I am Richard Vallon Jr. and I often bring my Dad, Richard Vallon Sr. , who is 90 and a WWII veteran to see Dr. Bell monthly for an ongoing condition. We are usually seen very quickly and Dr. Bell and the nurse have always handled us with great skill and care. The office is quiet and the chairs are homey and comfortable.

Extremely poorly run office. When I tried to make an appointment for my husband I was told to have him drink lots of water for his UTI and if that did not take care of it on a few days, bring him to the emergency room and the doctor would prescribe something then.
