Patient

I have spent two years with a top gastro doc in Cincinnati with little help being given. While on vacation on HHI, I spent four days in the hospital. Dr. Bell took my case; he gave me more care and concern in three days than the two years I have had with my other doc. Two nights he was with me in the hospital at 10:00 p.m. You always hear about the guy who would give you his shirt - Dr. Bell is that guy. He's knowledgeable, perceptive, and cares about the patient. I was never in his office so can only grade him.

I have had two colonoscopies with Dr. Bell, one with a complication, and he met my needs perfectly. I had and used his cell phone number. He calls to be sure all is well.
