I can't imagine not having a doctor like Bella on my side. I have an auto-immune disorder that keeps me on my toes and very in tune with my body. He listens. Really listens. He is able to lead me on some courses of action and he is able to follow my lead when it's needed. Bedside manner is kind and understanding, but he doesn't hesitate to push when he feels he needs to. And if he doesn't have the answers he will find it or tell you who does.

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.
