Ratings for Dr. Timothy Bell
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Dr. Bell!!!!! He is super helpful, and sweet! He delivered my first son, and when my second was born he wasn't there due to a family emergency, although he was in my room at 5:30 the next morning apologizing for not getting there in time to deliver for me! I will not go to anyone else as long as he is around! I delivered both of my children natural and didn't have any problems, he always answers any questions I have although I know he is very busy!
He was very rude to me during my pregnancy. Made comments that were unnecessary. I wouldn't use him again. I wanted a natural birth and he pushed me so hard. He acted like it wasn't a big deal I was gaining 6-8pounds a week with no explanation. No change in eating habit. My feet would swell so bad and my blood pressure was ridiculous and he would always send me home. Because he pushed me so hard my daughters heart rate started dropping and they had to take me in for a c section. Very disappointed in the service as well.
I went into labor and progressed beautifully. Then after 30 minutes of pushing (amd she was about to crown or so he said) he started whispering with the nurse and turned the monitor down with the baby's heart rate and then started pulling the dead baby card. Of course I consented to the c-section he recommended. I really don't think it was necessary as before he turned the monitor down he never said a thing about her heart rate. It was almost lunch time though. Since I had my baby EVERY SINGLE person I know who has used him has had a c-section. He used to be known as being natural but I guess that is if you can push a baby out in three minutes flat. I should have known to worry about him doing that when out of 4 of my cervical checks, I had to wait for an hour with 2 of them because he had an emergency c-section. He really is a sweet man I will give him that. But that is that.
I'm honestly surprised that Dr. Bell has so many 5 star ratings. For every single one of my appointments I have waited nearly two hours just to be seen. Once I actually get to an exam room, it's over in 10 minutes. I'm three months along and have not had a single drop of blood drawn for labs even though I have a history of anemia and a family history of diabetes. I could go on and on. If you've had a great experience with Dr. Bell's office, consider yourself lucky. I'm switching.
I absolutely love Dr. Bell! I'm so sad that I've already had my baby and will only get to see him once a year now. He is super sweet. He will sit and talk to you about any and all concerns, which I liked. I originally switched from Dr. Muylaert and was sad about it, but I will never go back to him just because Dr. Bell was THAT great. He has tons of patients but always remembers you when you come in! I am looking forward to having my next child in a couple of years and using him again. I always recommend him!
Dr. Bell was an absolute amazing OBGYN! As a pregnant teenager I knew some, but he made sure to tell me exactly what he was going to do at that particular appointment and why, if anything was going to be done differently at the next one and answered all the questions I had, told me I could call his nurses (who were also wonderful) if I got home and had questions and they would help me anytime! He always seem genuine and concerned about me AND my daughter and always left us with words of encouragement, telling me how good of a job I was doing taking care of myself and my unborn baby. During labor we had a big scare that her umbilical cord might be wrapped around her neck, he assured me everything was alright and he knew exactly what do. He quickly explained how he was going to go about getting it off her and went to do it and found out it wasn't around her neck it was wrapped around her foot. Before we left the hospital he even came to say goodbye!
My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for several years. Dr Bell has not been compassionate to the fact that my husband and I have not been able to conceive and does not seem concerned or willing to do whatever it takes to help us. I owe him less than $400 and he refuses to see me until it is paid in full regardless of need for medical attention. I offered to pay part of what I owed in order for them to see me for what I needed but that wasn't good enough. Personally, I think that any physician that cares about his/her patients is not going to refuse them service simply because they lack insurance or cannot pay a bill in full.
Dr. Bell is the most genuine physician I have had. He takes time to answer any questions and explains things in a way that are easy to understand. I recently had surgery to remove two ovarian cysts. He spent almost 30 minutes discussing the surgery with me and making sure that I understood everything. I highly recommend Dr. Bell.
