Dr. Bell knows me. She knows what I need and she gives me referral's too different Dr.’s who can help me in other area’s of my body that is not in her expertise. Very important for a Dr. to remember you and very important when a Dr. ask you Is it anything that you need or are you forgetting anything that may have happened to you physically since our last visit that may be better today. She’s definitely a Dr. that cares about all her Patients. I’m just so honored to have her as my main Dr. I’m sure she has lots of patients and to start remembering your last visit with her is SIMPLY AMAZING that her brain can retain , IMPORTANT to know she genuinely cares about you AND APPRECIATED cause I’ve had & heard of horrible experiences with Primary Care Doctors.

She is an excellent doctor very personable and very knowledgeable however I always wait 25 to 30 minutes after my scheduled time before she enters the examination room. I understand that is discussing health concerns with other patient however she should increase the appointment times so there is a shorter wait time. My appointment for next year is scheduled at 8:00am. I'm her fist appointment. I hope she considers thus suggestion

I haven't seen Dr. Bell in person but I was frustrated by this telehealth that 100% could have been a one sentence response to my initial email. She didn't have any actionable medical advice for me or even basic knowledge/info pertaining to my specific question and was looking it up on the phone with me in real time. All she ultimately did was suggest I contact another doctor. It was a waste of my time and co-pay.

Disclosures

Kimbra A. Bell, MD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
