I have been in serious pain since Sept with my neck and back. I have tried to get answers\help and I keep getting nowhere. I can't take too many pain medications, due to they make me very sick, so I have to eat Tylenol and Ibuprofen. This eases the pain only for an hour or so. I don't want to be on pain meds I just wanted answers. He was professional and went straight to what is wrong. I felt very comfortable with him. I see why people are going out of our little town for help. Dawn

I just have to give a little praise report. Before my surgery I had no feeling in parts of my arm, and fingers. Lost use of my right hand and arm. I constantly had pain in neck, lower back and at night my legs hurt so much. Thanks to Dr. Scott Bell all of these all gone!!!! If you need a good Neuro surgeon look him up. He's wonderful!
