WOW!!! all I have to say is wow. I was told to call back if I wasn't feeling better by Thursday. So I did, the nurse was so rude. It was like I was bothering her because I was sick.... Why am I calling she asked? give it more time.. She said I cant expect to get better overnight. This was Thursday from last Monday. anyways I got torn into like a little kid who did something wrong in grade school. I WAS TOLD BY DR BELL TO CALL BACK ON THURSDAY. This nurse should be in the back stuffing pills or something. She has ZERO people skills and Also ZERO heart. no business being in any communications with customers or other human beings. Dr. Bell is a very nice gentleman I am very sorry to see that this woman represents him in ANY way. Until she is terminated I wouldn't recommend going here for any reason at all.

Some of the nurses are great, particularly Trisha, but Teri is the most miserable woman I've met in my life. No people skills whatsoever - just plain rude. Dr. Bell too is very nice, but every. single. time I go in he pushes for me to see the chiropractor next door because, in a nutshell, all of my health issues are caused by being out of alignment. Pay for me to see him and I'll consider it, Dr. Bell.The main reason I'm compelled to write a review however is his P.A., Kelly Jo Brawley. She is the definition of unprofessional. I loved her when I started seeing her, but the more she gets to know you, the more awful her bedside manner becomes. She is insanely condescending to my mother, and on occasion to me (but only when my anxiety is clearly bad). We feel as if we must put on a front just to avoid being belittled. She callously dismisses legitimate concerns, regularly screws us on prescriptions (refuses to fill them, orders the wrong amount, forces us to come in for a check-up despite us having been in, etc.), and has actually said - loudly with the room door open - "You need to get to a psych!" That's extremely personal and not something the whole office should hear. There's so much more to say but it's far too difficult to explain and this has become messy and long enough.Anyway, as others have said, they also added ridiculous fees, so be prepared for them to try to charge you $25 if you call for pretty much anything other than an appointment. AVOID THIS OFFICE.

More concerned with money than with patients. The office staff is very difficult to deal with. You can find a much better doc for your money. Don't waste your time

Caring office

I went to this office because I was not happy with my previous doctor. I saw Kelly and she was awesome, very caring and knowledgable. Kelly takes whatever time is necessary to make sure she makes the right diagnosis. I refer people to her and so far all feedback is very positive.
