Dr. Bell's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bell "I became a doctor to walk with women in all phases of their lives. Doing the best I can with every patient every time has always been my goal. If I can't figure out what the problem is, I am not shy about referring to someone else. I have practiced general OB/GYN for over 20 years and have loved most of it."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bell "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."

Dr. Bell Says:
"

I value a woman's time and it is my goal to not make patients wait to get in or be seen by me.  It is my opinion that women should not have to wait an extraordinary amount of time to get in to a doctor.  Also, I love to explain complex medical conditions in English, not medical jargon.  It is important to me that my patients understand their gynecologic problems and therefore partner in their care.  It is my job to
