      Dr. Bell is the most conscientious physician I have had the pleasure to meet. My mother suffers from dementia and other issues and he was patient and explained to both of us what we can do to ease her transition into a private home. It was a difficult conversation and he handled it with ease. My mother had much peace of mind when we left.

      Dr. Bell was extremely knowledgeable. I did have to wait about 10 minutes but he gave me some extra time as well so I understood. My issues were complicated and I have been to doctors in the past who were unable to diagnose or provide a treatment plan even with many expensive tests. Dr. Bell had a plan for me and I was feeling better and less symptomatic within weeks. Thank you to Dr. Bell and Multicare!

      Too angry to write more than that I wouldn't refer this man to my worst enemy.
