Dr. Bellur is very friendly and listens carefully. I appreciate the fact that he is cautious about prescribing medications. He always asks if I have anymore questions.
in HuntsVille, Tx |
Dr.Bellur is extremely friendly and anxious to get to the root of your problem. He will find out what is wrong, making sure you are not anxious or scared in the meantime. I knew, without a doubt when I left his office, all my concerns had been dealt with and I was in the best care possible. As for his office staff, I only wish every doctor's office ran as efficiently as Dr. Bellur's. They are very friendly, they everything runs so effienctly.

Outstanding doctor. I credit him with keeping me alive and also my wife and sister. I cannot come up with enough superlatives to say how I feel about him. Just outstanding!
in Conroe, TX |
He changed the prescription from 3 times a day to once a day, without fully knowing about the specific heart condition. Then when he refused to change the prescription, I received a certified letter say he would not be my doctor any more.
