      He is the so sweet and listens to you and will help you anyway he can.

      Dr. Bella is very well educated in medicine as well as people skills which is something I believe can't be taught. The most compassionate Doctor I have ever had the privilege of being seen by. I have been seeing him since I moved to Baton Rouge in the early 90's and have always been treated kindly and efficiently by him and his staff.

      We have gone to Dr. Bella since we moved here in 1991. He is a caring, meticulous, patient doctor. He takes plenty of time to listen to you and answer any questions you have. His staff is also very helpful and friendly.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
