Dr. Bell is friendly, knowledgeable and listens so he can address all concerns. I have many hereditary spots from red to black in various sizes. Dr. Bell is so in tune that he saw them all and knew only one needed biopsied. You can trust his expertise but know you won't be put through anything unnecessary. His staff is also friendly and the entire visit was quick and painless and I left feeling much better than when I arrived. You can feel good about your visit to Dr. Bell.

Terrible experience top to bottom. In a nutshell Dr. Bell cares deeply about one thing: how much money he's going to make. If your condition doesn't bring a big enough charges, he will either try to stick you with a treatment option that is higher profitability or give you 30 seconds of his time. He cares little about the patient experience and is almost dismissive of a question as if you can't possibly understand what he knows. Had to wait a month for an appt just to enjoy this experience.

Dr. Bell and his associates are always professional and friendly. He has done alot to help me with my skin problems and always explains what is going on and what they are going to do. And just as nice is I never have to wait in the waiting room a long time.

Very Rude. He spent very little time with me. Seemed agitated. I did not feel comfortable with him. I will not go back.

Showed him a spot that I wanted removed and he sent a nurse in and she removed the WRONG spot. I will never go back. STAY AWAY!!!!

Rate: ZERO! Worst experience ever! Scheduled appointment to have procedure performed. Doctor came in and informed me that what I said I had, I did in fact have, and then said sadly I don't have time to do the procedure today, so you'll have to schedule another appointment for that. That's what I scheduled the apt for in the 1st place. The office manager just stated that it's up to the provider. So why wasn't I informed of this when I scheduled the apt? I would have just gone somewhere else.

By far worst doctor I have ever encountered. He put me on 2 different medicines for my acne without ever getting closer than 5ft from me. Horrible bed side manner. Was in and out in less than 5 minutes. I never returned. Guess I prefer a dermatologist that takes time to look at your skin. Office staff was equally as rude. I was not impressed, at all. And I'm actually not hard or difficult to please.

Did not tell us that insurance would not cover and our out pocket amount was going to be a lot on out patient surgery. My whole family has used him but never again. 1 rating is too high for him.
