If you smoke, you're screwed here. He'll gladly take your money, then lecture you about how bad smoking is. Captain Obvious. Doesn't take medical school to do that. Completely ineffective as a physician.
Hays, KS |
Maybe he would have been helpful, had he taken the time to listen to me. Left his office very unsure of everything. Make sure you have papers with past diagnosis with you.
Lawrence, KS |
Dr Bell and his staff have always been very helpful. Dr Bell was open and honest in discussion of diagnosis and treatment options. His staff did an excellent job getting multiple appointments /procedures scheduled. Great office.
in Ellsworth, ks |
Horrible. Extremely rude and disrespectful to my child. Spoke incorrectly (falsely) of areas outside his field which he has no expertise in and after the fact I've heard the same from others. I wouldn't take my dog to him cause I love my dog, let alone my child.
in Salina, KS |
Dr bell is not very patient friendly at all. He argued with me in the exam room about my condition. He prescribed me medication that just made my condition more severe. I explained to him that my insurance had a high deductible and i would only be able to make payments but i was told i had to pay in full the next time i came in or i wouldn't be seen by him. He wasted my time and money doing nothing to treat my condition for a period over 6 months.
in Beloit, KS |
Doctor said my son's procedure should be outpatient with no anesthesia but a local. Booked us at Salina Regional for what was to be outpatient surgery but then got a call saying this outpatient surgery would be over $15,000. Very frustrated with his office, staff, and his personal care toward the patient.
Mcpherson, KS |
My experience was awful Dr. Bell was a rude would never look me in the eye and would not let me talk when I was trying to explain why I was there. The whole time I was in his office he kept staring at my friend and would not speak to me only to her he acted as if he was angry I was even there. Every time I would try to speak he would interrupt me. He even had the nerve to tell me that he doesn't think I had migraines even though I've suffered from them for eight years and have been diagnosed.
in Salina, KS |
Short but to the point. Has handled problems with 4 of the 5 of us in the family and made a big difference in our health.
New York, NY |
