Dr. Bellinger treated my wife for atrial fibrillation. When other drugs failed to deal with the problem, he prescribed Amiodarone. We knew this could be a toxic drug, but there is a well accepted protocol for monitoring its use which includes lung function tests, lung imaging, and thyroid tests. In the four years that she took the drug he ordered none of these tests. She died of symptoms associated with Amiodarone toxicity such as lung fibrosis and hyperthyroidism. I believe he was negligent.

I highly recommend Dr. Bellinger and I, quite literally, trust him with my life. He is an outstanding physician, a good listener and and genuinely nice person. He worked with me to diagnose an unusual and rare heart problem and was firm in recommending corrective action. This is a doctor you can trust and who you will enjoy working with.
