Specialties

Dr. Alisa Bell has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Dr. Bell doesn't like being questioned. Bedside manner is horrible. Cares more about her ego than her patients. Be warned: see a different specialist!

Didn't Go Back

A few years ago, my PCP referred me to a nephrologist due to a 30+ year history of high blood pressure and various test results that suggested some kind of kidney disorder. Previous testing, including dye in veins had not shown any clear evidence of kidney disease, although the troubling blood work continued. Dr. Bell didn't appear interested in understanding any of my medical history and told me that some of the things I had experienced didn't happen. She then gave me some suggestions than anyone can find in 10 minutes on the internet. I never went back, nor was there even an attempt to schedule me for another appointment or testing of any kind. My eGFR is now getting too low and I need a nephrology consult. Would never consider Dr. Bell.

Knowledgeable and prompt

Dr. Bell is always timely with appointments and very informative when responding to health questions. The office doesn't have auto prompts or voicemail during office hours when you need to call in so I always get a live person on the other end of the phone! I would recommend Dr. Bell and the practice to anyone seeking renal care in the area. (Especially if you need to be seen quickly! Another office I was referred to at first had a wait time of several weeks for an appointment!)
