Dr. Belcea is a competent fellow physician who LISTENS to the patient. I am 61 years old (Anesthesiology / Addiction Medicine) and was trained in a manner where the patient tells you what is wrong both verbally and physically. Modern Medicine does NOT follow this criteria but, Dr. Belcea does. It is not what you learn but, what you see also.

Bill in NC – Nov 16, 2018
I have been a patient of Dr. Belcea for 12 years. One cannot ask for a more compassionate physician, who REALLY listens to patients. The Concierge service brings his practice to a whole new level! As one with significant health issues, I trust Dr. Belcea with all aspects of my health. His nursing staff are wonderful too! In this day, how many doctors or nurses call just to see how you're feeling? Dr. Belcea is humble, knowledgeable, and truly cares for his patients.

Robin in Raleigh, NC – Jun 28, 2018
I have seen many doctors over the years and Dr. Belcea is simply the best. He is an expert in his field, current in science and technology. He places an emphasis on preventive care. He is thorough and excellent with followup. He is always on time (give and take) - a rare find in a medical office. And best of all, I always have amble time (not that sense of rush) for my appointments - another rare find.

Dr. Belcea is literally the best. It's nice to have a doctor that listens to what you're saying and doesn't just write off what you are feeling/experiencing. The staff was very nice and my appointment was on time.

My experience with Dr. Belcea is one I would not trade for anything. He is always there for me offering different ways to treat my medical concerns. The concierge plan is great since there are no limits on visits and time spent. For several years I have been dealing with anxiety issues requiring many trips to discover the cause and ways to deal with it. The treatment specifically for me. Now doing well. He is always patient, caring, listening and supportive. His staff is caring and supportive.

Dr. Belcea is rare, he takes the time to listen, he takes time to discuss alternatives and options. He is not the 'four minute' Doctor. For a true health partner, choose Dr. Belcea

Dr. Belcea is incredibly well-informed in family medicine, is well-read on new developments in treatments for disease and wellness, displays a true sense of caring during patient visits, and is easy to reach when medical issues arise that require his assistance and opinion. Of all the primary physicians I have visited living in eight cities, he is by far the best. I recommend him with no hesitation for anyone needing a personal care physician.

He's a good guy, with a good heart, but his staff is going to cost him his practice. They're horrible and now if you're not willing to pay an additional $1,800 a year for the concierge membership in addition to your regular co-pays with your insurance, they won't see you anymore! Nice huh?

I agree with the comments on not answering the phone! Over a year ago when he did the 1st concierge program presentation he claimed that if you didn't get it, it wouldn't effect him seeing you. That turned out to be a lie! You saw him less and less, and was even told he was busy and if you wanted to talk to him, you needed to sign up and pay almost $1,700 a year or your time would be limited to 1 no more than 2 minutes! They are now "purging" anyone out the practice that doesn't join their club!

Jerrie Williams in Youngsville, NC – Nov 03, 2016
Dr. Belcea was my doctor for 9 years until I moved further into Raleigh. He was always the best,especially spending time listening. He was able to diagnose my problem that other doctors could not for 20 years. I am not satisfied with my current doctor who's office is just a couple of miles away and more convenient so I went back to see Dr. Belcea for at least a second opinion. Once again he listened and was able to tell me the origin of my problem immediately! I'm coming back to stay. Great doc!
