AN EXCEPTIONAL DEDICATED PSYCHIATRISTS

In my humble opinion, it takes a very special person who can and has the ability to comprehend a patients mental issues. Dr. Bell insightful approach with input from other resources is based on her patients believing that trusting, and knowing that she is not going to be judgemental in her view of your overall handling of situations. I feel that her philosophy is based on her vast expertise on Treatment and Observations as a Lt.Comander in the US NAVY as a Psychiatrist.

Better before Bell

Before, going to Dr. Bell. I was only on one medication. I wasn’t suicidal or depressed. I only had some trouble with sleep & anxious at times. After, a few years seeing her I was put on a multitude of different medications at max doses I began having symptoms/behaviors I didn’t have before. I believed it was because, of the medication but, she didn’t think so whenever- I questioned it. I trusted her fully at the time. I was misdiagnosed because of this & put on unnecessary medications that made me worse. Before, Dr. Bell I felt I was a good person very social family oriented & thought positive about life. I just needed a little guidance to help meet my goals. After, a few years I have become a different person I no longer recognized. I became depressed deeply with , out of control panic & behaviors. I no longer cared about life and went on a downward spiral. I had multiple suicide attempts and hospital stays became the new normal. I had so much in my life and slowly lost it all. I thought she was the best Dr.- only thing keeping me alive at one point. Everything changed very quickly after, I was thrown out for missing and appointment. Ran out of meds & became out of control. The best thing that happened to me was her throwing me out.

Four Stars

I've been with Dr. Bell after searching high and low in my twenties and thirties for the right psychiatrist who I could stay with comfortably for more than a year or two tops. I'm going on 12 years with her now and I can't see myself looking back nor do I feel like I have any regrets.. She knows her medications very well, she is knowledgeable of all different kinds of mental illnesses and personality disorders and different syndromes in the psychology field and such. I love the fact that she takes excellent notes during each 20-minute session in case you need to refer back to something as I have plenty of times and they've always been dead on accurately we written. She is very personable, genuine, down home, and she levels with you and keeps it real while also keeping a professional mannerism. She's also been there when I needed her during an emergency call for support after hours. I know it takes time to build rapport and trust with any type of doctor and I also am aware that psychology and taking medication and even finding the right diagnosis can be hard in the beginning with much trial-and-error. But I have to say as a 46 year-old woman now, trying at least a dozen psychiatrist, Dr. Bell by far is the best for many reasons that I stated above and more! Her office setting is comfortable and very laid-back. I don't remember ever but maybe a handful of times having to call her for quick med refills that were at the pharmacy before the end of the day or not much long after my initial call. But usually she always takes care of that and I never have to call her for med refills. She's super on point, friendly, professional, organized, on top of it all and simply knows her sh*t🏆👏. You can ask her anything you want without her making you feel any sort of negative way and she goes that extra step to help to answer your questions and if she doesn't know the answer she will try to find out for you. . I do not look forward to the day when may need to relocate due to the cost of living in Jersey and not a lot of Housing available or Super long Hud waiting lists and may have to find a new doctor in another less expensive state or perhaps she may retire before I pass on to the Heavenly realms and I I would dread😐having to search the world for a new psychiatrist comparable to Dr. Bell because I know one couldn't be found👉Point Blank! Yet all in all and no mater what either way, she has taught me MUCH😄(combined with cognitive behavioral therapy with my talk therapist out of the same Galloway mental health office. Her name is Sharon who's also just as amazing. Together they are a great team:) Dr. Bell Has taught me one of the greatest things and that is to try to stay in the present moment as I fight PTSD on a daily and can easily relive things over and over again like they happened moments ago. It can be quite devasting and very scary at times. So again, I am gracious and thankful to have Dr. Bell as my psychiatrist. And I just hope and pray that I never have to change to a different Doctor for any reason(?) But if I do, I won't lose the tools and skills she has taught me. Some of the best ones are do one thing everyday when I have absolutely zero energy and feel like doing nothing from such deep depression along with giving myself credit for taking the smallest of Baby steps, one day at a time and living in the present moment as best I can along with staying consistent with medication and appointments and always always keep the lines of communication open with her about how I am feeling so things can be adjusted and, or changed as needed and where needed, and the plethora of many other positive skills and tools that I'd take with me and try to be mindful of them everyday in all situations where I can use them lifelong.. A huge huge📣SHOUT OUT to Dr.Bell at Galloway Mental Health! I highly recommend Dr. Bell to anyone looking for a righteous psychiatrist and who would also like to GET IT RIGHT in choosing a Good Doctor on the first shot👍. Sincerely, JMV-P
