THIS DR. IS BURNT OUT AND BARELY FACES YOU WHEN HE IS TALKING TO YOU. HIS STAFF MAKES UP FOR HIS APATHETIC AND DISMISSIVE PERSONALITY.
Uncaring! Repeatedly sent me home saying I had viral infection. I would be dead if it weren't for Urgent Care. Admitted to hospital with a team of doctors who saved my life. Dr Bell never followed up with me to know I had almost died. Saw numerous PA's instead of Dr. Kno wonder there was no patient /Dr relationship.

Bait and switch. Will claim to handle extensive medical issues and pain patients, but once you are sitting there he's 'uncomfortable' taking you on when you need hip replacements, neck, and lung surgeries because he 'doesn't believe' in pain meds. If you can't handle the patient, don't tell them in 5 prior phone calls its no problem and quote them an entire months grocery budget to see you, then send a bill for another $100 when they say they don't want to see you!!!
