Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Bell misdiagnosed a neuroma as a fracture. He Unnecessarily had me wearing a boot for 6 months. Two other podiatrists confirmed there was never any evidence of a fracture. He seems disinterested and aloof.

Dr. Bell is an amazing doctor and a terrific find! He has terrific bedside manner and also has a great sense of humor. His office was efficient and very friendly. He greatly helped me with my foot issues. Highly recommend!

I am very impressed with Dr. Bell. He spent more time with me than the previous 2 podiatrist. I have painful flat feet The new orthotics he gave me have helped 100%. I tolerate standing at my job for a lot longer. Highly recommended
Lawrenceville, GA |
Went to this doctor for a simple callus on the bottom of foot. I told the lady at the desk I had a high deductible and a budget on my medical treatment. She told me to let them know in the back. What was a 20 minute visit my bill with this doctor was $439.00. He took some clippings of my toe nails to send to a lab that cost me $900.00. Then took one x-ray of the foot with the callus and charged me for both feet being x-rayed. STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR.
Dr. Bell complained about how he didn't like the way the dressing that was put on my fractured toe that was done by another Podiatrist, who filled in for him in his absence due to Dr. Bell cancelling his appointments for that week. Then I squirmed as he "pulled" dressing off my toe that was fractured "across the bone." His response was, "IT'S A FRACTURED TOE, NOT CANCER.'
Atlanta, GA |
My impression: unconcerned, mildly arrogant, and impatient doctor. I waited about 20 min (waiting & exam room) to see Dr. Bell. Immediately I noticed he doesn't listen much. As I was explaining my history, he seemed to be in a hurry and interrupted frequently. After 7 minutes, he was ready to issue me medication and sell me an orthotic insert and night splints. At the end, he had this matter-of-fact attitude because I asked him questions that he seemed to interpret as doubting his expertise.
