Dr. Bell has been my physician for several years now. He is brilliant, patient and kind. He listens to my issues and patiently answers all of my questions. He is attentive and always willing to present as many solutions as possible to my symptoms. He consistently moves forward with what I am most comfortable with and ensures I have a positive experience through every appointment and surgery.

Dr. Bell came highly recommended from my family doc. His son had a dramatic outcome after a hernia repair. I think it speaks volumes when health care professionals recommend a surgeon from personal experience. I had a LINX procedure and although the first couple of months were a bit rocky, every time I called the office the nurse practioner took the time to listen & explain why things were feeling the way they were. Two years later, I am reflux free, eating good and loving life again! 5 stars!

I am one of those individuals that suffered with Gerd Reflux for over 42 years. I was recommended by one of my treating physicians to see Dr. Reginald Bell. In two visits I was diagnosed and Dr. Bell outlined a treatment plan to cure my hiatal hernia. Within two weeks of comprehensive testing Dr.Bell provided a laprascopic surgery of my hiatal hernia. It was painless and surgery completed in 90 minutes. Four weeks later I am completely free of my systems of acid reflux and suffer no pain.

One year ago Dr. Bell installed the Torax LINX Reflux Management Device around my esophagus. All the tests leading up to the procedure were professionally handled and gave me the assurance that I was a strong candidate for the LINX device. Dr. Bell and his team kept me well informed of all the test results. Dr. Bell explained to me all of my options to help my acid reflux problems. Since the LINX device has been installed I have had no side effects, off my medication, and NO REFLUX!

After 10 years of medication, sleeping on a wedge and generally just grinning and bearing what I thought was acid reflux, I decided to get a repair surgery on the advice of my GI doc. Dr. Bell put me through some standard preparatory tests and determined that I, in fact, did not suffer from acid reflux and recommended a simple elimination diet to see if that cured my symptoms. After 3 days, I was fine. No surgery, no more medications, just a dietary adjustment. I couldn't be happier!

I went to Dr. Bell with stomach emptying issues and ulcers on my esophagus. Dr. Bell performed tests to see what was going on. We decided to do laparoscopic fundoplication surgery. So far it is working. I'm still recover but feel so much better. Dr. Bell is very good at explaining options I could of taken and what each step would require. He talks at a level that is easy to understand. I would recommend Dr. Bell to anyone suffering from stomach and esophagus issues. His staff is wonderful.

I have a failed Nissan done by Dr. Bell. In most cases, if I felt comfortable or secure with a surgeon, I would go back and have them figure out what went wrong. Most Dr.'s opinion of his work is high, I was initially impressed, because I felt like he gave me clear instructions. After an unfortunate mix of unkindress and unfounded accusations about my medication and caused a problem with a Dr. that I trusted deeply. Now I must find a new surgeon, but I am very afraid of repeating the surgery.
