Wowwwwwwww. That's it. One word. Dr. Bell is phenomenal. I've been to visit him twice now and although I've not had a heart attack I am 59 yrs old and have recently recognized symptoms of potential heart malfunction. Dr. Bell put me at ease immediately as his vast knowledge and compassion had me thinking I was his most important appointment. Let me close in saying if I'm ever in need of anything further than monitoring symptoms - DR. BELL IS MY CHOICE FOR HEART HEALTH CARE. Thanks Dr Bell

In my opinion, there is none better than Dr Bell. He is compassionate and has a wonderful bedside mannerism. After My illness in 2004, I was asked who I wanted to be my Heart Doctor. I responded that I wanted someone who would take time with me, tell me in layman's terms what was going on and also someone who is compassionate. The nurse responded, "Well you want Dr. Bell". He was assigned my doctor and still is. I will continue seeing him as long as I am alive.
