Specialties

Dr. James R Bell has the following 3 specialties

  • Hospice & Palliative Medicine
  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Bell is Unprofessional!

Dr. Bell is extremely unprofessional. I would suggest that St. Luke's reconsider his position in palliative and hospice care. He has no busy in providing medical advice to families! His bed side manner would be a zero if possible. He lacks the ability to provide accurate information to families who are making difficult decisions. I am extremely unhappy with the services received by Dr. Bell and St. Luke's Hospital/Unity Point.
