Dr. Bell performed colonoscopy and follow-up consultation. Throughout, he has been very dedicated - directly engaged with follow-up tests, providing direction, and staying involved. He has spent as much time as my wife and I have needed for questions and concerns.

After my colonoscopy dr. Bell told me he had made a small nick by mistake. 5 days I had severe stomach cramps. I got on the toilet and hemorrhages approx. 2 pints of blood. I immediately called dr. Bell and he told me that if my bowels had passed it wasn’t caused by the colonoscopy. He said he would fax me an order to get my blood checked in case I needed a transfusion. He never asked me to come see him. I know the hemorrhaging was caused by the nick he made and the blood gathered .

Doctor Bell did my Colonoscopy. He was very caring and informative as to what I was in store for. He explained it and made sure I was comfortable. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a doctor who cares about a patient's physical and mental well being before a uncomfortable procedure.

Dr. Bell seemed pleasant at first. However, when I continued to have a reoccurring stomach issue even after many tests and medicines, he dismissed me completely. I am a patient who does exactly what he recommends. I have taken all recommended tests. I have taken all medicines. The same problem has continued and he is doing nothing to help me.
