I am disappointed that no one in Dr. Bellur's offc has returned my call. I know offcs are closed because of the "Virus", but surely he hasn't shut down his phones..I only need a printout , mailed to me, of monies I have paid for Dr. Bellur's services from August 1st 2019 up to the current date today...It is very important I get this info...I drove to his offc twice. It is closed..All I ask is for someone from Dr. Bellur's offc to call me...thank you, Mary Ann Bracewell

I had a VERY BAD EXPERIENCE WITH HIS STAFF ON FRIDAY OCTOBER 4, 2019, DUE TO THE FOLLOWING REASONS, WHERE I (WILL NOT BE NOT BE COMING BACK) AS HIS PATIENT: 1. KEEP IN MIND IN LIVE IN BRYAN, TEXAS AND HAD TO COME THROUGH 2 TOWNS WITH VERY HEAVY CONSTRUCTION. MY APPOINTMENT WAS AT 10:30 AM, AND I FIRST CALLED AT 9:00 AM , LETTING THE DESK KNOW THAT I WAS STUCK IN TRAFFIC AND SHE SAID, JUST COME ON. 2. I GET TO ANOTHER SMALL TOWN AND GOT STUCK AND NOW THE TIME IS 10:00 AND MY GPS SAID I WILL BE 25 MINUTES LATE WHICH TURNED OUT TO BE 30 MINUTES, WHICH THEY EERE NOTIFIED ABOUT. 3. UPON ARRIVING, THE UNPROFESSION ECHO TECH COMES OUT IN THE LOBBY IN THE PRESENCE OF OTHER PATIENTS AND TELLS ME THAT SHE WON'T BE SEEING ME BECAUSE OF HER LUNCH BREAK! THEY ARE VERY INCOMPETENT, INSENSITIVE, UNPROFFESSIONAL AND HAVE TOTAL DISRRGARD FOR PATIENTS' NEEDS AND ADVERSE CIRCUMSTANCES, AND AS A RESULT THIS DOCTOR (LOST A PATIENT) DUE TO HIS "HORRIBLE STAFF" !!

Dr Bellur is amazing! Best bedside manner and knowledgeable. His receptionist is a nightmare. Talks over you and very disrespectful. I'm disappointed because now there's no way I'd go back to that office.

The Dr is great! But The ultrasound technician could have been friendly. She did not explain the test, She was pushing too hard on my chest and showed very little care. My last ultrasound over there, a sweet young Hispanic lady did it and made me feel so comfortable. I was disappointed I didn’t see her again. Would have been 5 star rating before my experience with Angie.

I was helping a friend by taking her to Dr. Bellur because she needed cardiac clearance for immediate surgery the next day. He and his entire staff went out of their way to help get all the tests scheduled to meet the requirements of the surgeons. What should have taken a good week to arrange was done so amazingly by this doctor and his wonderful staff. He was professional, kind, wonderful bedside manner. Kudos to him, Cindy and Angi and the rest of the staff for their kindness and caring.

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.

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.
