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 very friendly and listens carefully. I appreciate the fact that he is cautious about prescribing medications. He always asks if I have anymore questions.

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.
