I have been a patient of Dr. Hell's now for over 10 years. He is thorough and answers your questions with clarity. But one of his greatest gifts is that he's supportive, caring and compassionate, especially at the most vulnerable times.

For over two years I have seen severall doctors about my inability to swallow. Dr. Hell was unrelenting in solving the problem. He was kind, considerate who talked with my husband and I as we were partners in healing. He did a procedure that enhanced my ability to swallow. Dr. Hell is one of those doctors who exude compassion, respect and knowledge.

In 2014 I saw this Doctor in a local hospital here (Horrible care.). He took care of me, and had no issues with his service dog. In June 2017, went to see him and he was unprofessional, uneducated about the American with Disabilities Act, and was extremely rude. He didn't follow the law, or make reasonable accommodation for me. And his excuse? Allergies. In 2014 he didn't have these allergies! DO NOT RECOMMEND.

Dr. Hell does one thing most doctors won't do, he adjusts his explanations of his findings to my level of understanding which makes my level of anxiety as low as humanly possible. He also doesn't mind my armónica sense of humor and allows me to be honest when I'm not thrilled with the way things might be going. To sum him up in a word, he is my hero.

I have been a patient of Dr Hell's since 2002. I have always been so impressed with him because he probably takes more time to listen to me and assess the situation than any other Doctor. He is very knowledgable, knows his field inside out,and is well versed in other fields of medicine as well. I have recommended Dr Hell to family and friends over the years, and he has never disappointed anyone who was referred to him. On top of being a first rate Doctor, he is a kind and caring person.
