Dr. Bell is an awesome doctor. I specifically chose him for his experience in sports medicine. I have bursitis and tendonitis in my hip. He always spends plenty of time with me explaining my x-rays or MRI and what his recommendations are. I have recommended 3 people to him and they have all liked him.

Everybody was so nice. The service was great. The best thing, I went in ON TIME!!! On time and it was not the first of the day. Each appt was like that. Doctor Bell himself was super personable and didn't use a bunch of Latin inspired huge words. He explained everything, what was wrong, specifically, how he was going to fix it, he even told me what he couldn't do.

I am a 72 year old female who slipped and sustained a crack in my right femur right above my metal total knee replacement. Dr. Bell got me in very soon after my visit to my local ER. Besides being very knowledgeable, he is kind. And he didnt fuss at me when I told him how I got the injury. Also, he didnt suggest surgery right away; will try to see if it heals on its on before discussing that option. I am quite pleased with him and would recommend him to anyone.

First time being seen by Dr Bell. He appeared very knowledgeable of my knee condition and explained various options to clear or alleviate symptoms. Looking forward to following up in about a month.

Dr Bell is great. He repaired my rotator and my shoulder is very close to normal. Before the surgery, he gave me all my options. He did not try to force me into surgery. I am now under Dr. Bell’s care for my knee. Again he gave me many choices and I have chosen surgery. I have high confidence in his ability to operate on my knee
