Excellent & caring Doctor. I've been seeing him for ~15 years, & he has kept my arthritis under control with leading edge methods & medications. Prescribes what is needed, but not excessive. (He still has plans of what to do next if anything stops working.) Very pleasant & personable, with good memory for me & my history. Involves me in decisions. He reminds me of an old-fashioned family Dr. in demeanor, who is also an up-to-date specialist in knowledge and skills. Couldn't ask for more!

This doctor made me feel as if what I was experiencing was a fragment of my imagination. He did not recognize symptoms of discoid lupus and did not properly document my condition. When my blood work returned it clearly showed I had a chronic Auto Immune Disease. Doctor Bellor never contacted me to discuss these findings. In the end I made an appointment with another Rheumatologist that was skilled enough to properly diagnose and treat me. Avoid this doctor at all costs.
