Dr. Bell was the amazing M.D who saved our daughters eye and eyesight when she had a FREAK accident with a steak knife... It's been 7 years since her surgery and she has regained about 65-70% of her vision back thanks to his hard work and dedication. He helped us during Post-Op care for and save her eye and now helps her to maintain vision. Thank You & God Bless you Dr. Bell - You are truly amazing!
My husband went yesterday with Dr Bell, he was very nice, and explained everything in a very clear way, showed us the pictures from the OCT, we are very happy to have found him!!!!
Dr. Bell has been and is a very decdicated and talented doctor. I am privileged to have him as my eye surgeon. He presented a plan for me and I felt safe and assured that I would end up just as he said that I would. I thank Dr. Bell everyday, even though he does not hear me, for fixing the problems that existed with my eye.
