One Star

Terrible doctor. If you have the choice between visiting this doctor or a veterinarian, go to the vet. This guy took care of my wife, and he never listened to her, and she didn't exactly like him but stayed as he knew her complicated medical issues. when he moved he didn't give her any notice despite her being treated in his office at least every 2-3 months. He knew she needed ongoing care but didn't so much as refer her to a new doctor, simply gave her a list from the delta county physician referral and most were Nurse practitioners and none were actually accepting new patients . She spent over month seriously sick and in pain because of his lack of compassion. I hear he now is in Florida caring for veterans, I think they deserve better

Terrible doctor

If I could give this qauck less than one star I would. My daughter suffers from a couple rare conditions and was his patient for more than 6 years. She wasn't told by him that he was planning to move to Florida, til she asked him at her last appointment ( less than one month before he was to close his doors) he told her that yes he was and that he wouldn't refer her over to anyone else and that she had better go home and start calling, and that with he complicated diagnosis and medications she would have a hard time and possibly have to go 50-100+ miles. He doesn't care about his patient's otherwise he would have either gave advance notice to his patients and helped them get set up else where or he would have handed his practice over to another doctor like others normally do. As a result my daughter had to abruptly stop her medications, and spent months looking for a New doctor and her health dramatically declined since. Her new doctor has said that he has done this with all his patients and he has picked up several others that should never have gone without the way he made them do. I heard he is now working in a VA hospital in Florida if so I feel sorry for our troops. If you are thinking about using him don't you'll regret it.

Leaves patients high and dry

Dpesmt care about his patients. Was a doctor in Delta for quite a few years, then got another job in Florida and didn't bother notifying his patients and allowing them enough time to find new doctors before splitting. I don't blame him for t Doing something that betters his life, but I do fault him for neglecting his patients in the process many of them with serious chronic health issues. Prior to this he was about average, he would do the minimum and acted as though he had better things to do than to listen and often ignored patients concerns, and updates. No nurse, and the lady at the front desk was always rude.

Two Stars

Dr. Bell's receptionist is very unfriendly and often rude. Dr. Bell is awful for really listening to you, he simply rushes to his office, where he ticks away on his key board barely asking questions or responding. Guy just doesn't care about his patients.
