What People Say About Dr. Joseph Bell, MD
Reply
I accidentally had Dr Bell when my last Colonoscopy had to be postponed and my Gastroenterologist could not be scheduled for the new date. He was great, he was easy to talk to and very informative. This time I’m requesting him because my Dr has since retired. I would definitely recommend him! Good doctors are hard to find these days. I’m glad to know he is at the same practice.
