      • Disciplinary action in another state  (7/17/2015)
      • Action Taken: Suspension
      • Summary: Dr. Patricia Ann Bell; License # 12648 - NATURE OF COMPLAINT: By an administrative complaint, the Michigan Board filed a disciplinary action against Licensee charging two counts of unprofessional conduct with respect Dr. Bell’s care of five patients from 2008 and 2010. The Michigan Board alleged Count I, “negligence or failure to exercise due care” and Count II “incompetence,” in violation of Michigan code. Licensee surrendered her clinical privileges at St. Francis Hospital in Escanaba, Michigan. A stipulation was fully executed between Licensee and the Michigan Board under which Licensee did not contest the allegations in the administrative complaint. The stipulation was premised, in part, on the fact Licensee would no longer performed surgeries or deliveries and had limited her practice to clinical care. It is unprofessional conduct in Montana for a licensee to be disciplined by a sister board

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Bell's Care Philosophy

    I care about each and every one of my patients. At age 6, I lost my mother to breast cancer. Since then, I have dedicated my life and career to saving women's lives. I believe that I was put on this earth to be an OB/GYN. Being an osteopathic physician, I am holistic and believe in prevention of diseases. Each woman is a beautiful creation of God. I believe that it is my responsibility to care for each of my patients as if they were my mother, sister or daughter. I will do everything in my power to help women. As an osteopathic physician, I want to take care of women's mind, body and soul. With today's challenges of balancing work and family life, women today live in a delicate balance. I try to keep that balance as well as help my patients keep that balance.
