Ratings for Dr. Michelle T. Bellamy
I have been seeing Dr. Bellamy for about 5 years. She is a very kind and compassionate person. I feel very at ease talking to her and she listens and addresses my concerns. I had a condition that required surgery and she continually monitored my lab tests then, when the condition worsened, referred me to a specialist and a surgeon. I never have to wait in the waiting room or the exam room.
I have been a patient of Dr Bellamy for more than 7 years. I felt comfortable from the first visit. She's very professional,excellant bedside manor. I respect her professional opinions. The staff could use some help. I have seen several come and go over the years, some not so professional. I think eating and drinking in the reception area is un-professional. You "ARE" the first impression... You only get to make that once.
My experience with Dr. Bellamy has always been very good. I never feel rushed. She does a good job of explaining why she is prescribing medications when needed. She does a good job of listening and shows compassion. Her staff(most)however, are rude and unfriendly. I don't need to be greeted with enthusiasm, I would just like to be greeted/acknowledged period. One of her nurses has incorrectly typed up my prescription 3 different times. Once she mistakenly doubled the dosage I'm supposed to take. That's a pretty major mistake. I've considered switching docs several times in the last couple years. If I had to see her staff more than the 1 or 2x I go in each year I probably would switch to a new practioner.
Dr Bellamy is attentive. Though she is very quick to write a prescription to take care of the symptoms without ever wanting to get to the root of your problem. She's ok for the common cold but NOT for anything complicated. Her new office technology creates more problems for her patients than I think is acceptable.
Dr. Bellamy listens well and pays attention to my concerns and doesn't act like she is in a rush to get through my appointments. She has a caring confident approach--a gentle no-nonsense demeanor. Her staff is responsive, professional, respectful, and discreet. Very little waiting time for appointments.
I did not like Michelle Bellamy as a doctor... she was very rude to me when I had strep throat - she did a throat culture and when she did I gagged a little (I have a sensitive gag reflex) and she got irritated with me. She never smiled once and she was just snotty to me. I won't go back to her...ever.
Dr. Bellamy is on time, helpful, and empathetic. Even when I made health "mistakes," she was understanding and didn't dwell on them. I've never had to sit in the waiting room too long, either, and the staff is very professional and on top of their game.
