Ratings for Dr. David Bell
Dr. Bell is the best bar none. Instead of putting me through a stent and lithotripsy he put the stent in and lasered all 6 stones I had. (2 were hiding). Recovery is difficult but Dr. Bell is always a phone call away. In 3 weeks the stent will be out, and I'll be stone free! Dr. Bell is kind, compassionate, professional, and extremely competent. He excels in his field, and surrounds himself with the most competent support staff as well. He is truly the top, number 1 urologist in Nova Scotia.
My family doctor didn't include all the details of testing on the referral, but was seen within 3 months anyway. First visit was short and to the point: "schedule a biopsy". Second visit was the biopsy, in office, and took 20 minutes. He called twice after the biopsy to check how I was doing, and within two weeks, called back personally to give the news. A week later, 3rd visit, to schedule treatment. Excellent doctor, excellent staff, answered the many questions we had. So far, best person to give us hard news, and glad he took an approach that caught it early.
When my 'conservative' older urologist retired, Dr Bell took over his practice. I saw him every 6 months for 2 years and complained to him that I could not contain my urine & had a burning sensation while urinating. I knew where every washroom in the Dartmouth/Halifax area was. As soon as I arrived home & stepped out of the car, I had to rush in to our home as I had peed myself & rush in and change my panties and slacks. I checked the web & each time I saw him I asked whether it could be this or that. Could be was his reply. Finally a resident urologist examined me, in Dr. Bell's presence, & discovered my bladder cancer. It was too late by then. I was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer & he removed my bladder. He was & no doubt is a good surgeon. I'm pleased to say that I'm a 11 year Stage IV survivor. I'm sure that that Dr. Bell's detection skills have improved since then.
