What People Say About Dr. Karen Bell, MD
Reply
I really like Dr. Bell. She was so warm yet firm & requested additional testing to really understand my mother's situation. However, after an excruciating lumbar puncture - & being eager to hear about results - I'm told that the follow up appointment that I scheduled 2 months ago is being bumped back to clear her schedule for new patients. I can't believe that such a reputable place would disrespect my time so blatantly-even after I explained the hardship for me.

Treats you like a number. No interpersonal manners. Zero compassion.
