Dr Belmar is excellent and my husband, son & myself have been patients of hers for almost 20 years. She is very caring & really listens to me when I see her. My only problem is the office staff. When trying to schedule an appointment with her, they ALWAYS try to push us to other doctors & are pretty rude when we come in. If I could find another doctor as good as Dr Belmar & as close (45 minute drive), we would switch just because of the office staff. I wish Dr Belmar had never joined Sentinel.

Have had two appointments with Dr. Belmar and will not be back. Wait time isn't awful, and the staff is extremely pleasant. But Dr. Belmar herself has awful bedside manners. All of my concerns are never fully addressed, check ups are not thorough at all, and I was talked to in a demeaning way when asking questions.

Dr. Belmar takes the time to understand and answer as many questions as she can. She listens to issues and does not make a patient feel rushed. She is willing to try what ever needs to be done to find satisfactory resolutions to health problems.
