Dr Bell made me feel so comfortable prior to surgery. I knew I was in good hands. I felt that I could trust him, especially since we discussed the pros and cons of all options and he never made me feel I like my questions weren't valid.
New York, NY |
Extremely personable, takes the time to explain everything and answer any questions you may have. His office is well run and I have never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to see him when I arrive for my appointment. I cannot recommend him enough.
in Maplewood, NJ |
Dr. Bell is an experienced surgeon, who instills a high degree of confidence. He has a warm caring manner, and actually enjoys explaining procedures and answering questions. I was very impressed with his unhurried manner during office visits - he gives the impression that he has as much time as you want to spend answering questions. He and his staff did everything possible to make the procedure easy for me - and the surgery was very successful with no complications. Highly recommend him!
