She has been my personal physician for nearly 15 years. She very knowledgeable in what she does. She asks you questions that you are concerned about; she keeps track of medical requirements when they are due/needed; if there are issues or concerns, she gets to the point and gives suggestions/options for next steps; and she's very observant, for example, she noticed a large goiter in my neck when we were talking and she sent me to an endocrinologist.

She is a wellness doctor and accepts seniors. She is patient. She listens. She questions. She had an awesome nurse who has executive or physician assistant qualities. She does not seem to have an almightier than thou attitude. She is younger than most of the doctors I have seen in the last 20 years. She is Black. Most Black female seniors have Caucasian male doctors. I had one, too, but he was outstanding and a real old school doctor who spent time with and cared about his patients. He consulted with Dr. Bell on my case, too. Most of the people to whom I would recommend her and I have recommended her in the past to two people who are disabled.

Dr. Bell is caring in her discussions, complete in her coverage of the topics, uses the information in the system to insure she is not wasting the valuable time in the appointment to ask questions that she already has access to. That can be frustrating to older patients. As a caregiver to an older patient, I appreciate her manner of reminding the older patient of information she has access to verify for the patient that these things have happened in the past, which reassures the patient they are on the right or wrong track.

Dr. Bell exceeds my expectations. I switched from a doctor at another respected hospital in Chicago to Dr. Bell approximately 4 years ago. This was the best decision I made medically. Dr. Bell listens and connects with me. She even caught an error in medication I was administered which contained ingredients for which I am allergic. She jumped into action right away as she knows me as a patient. Her knowledge, wisdom and good understanding of the human body coupled with her authentic caring nature makes me trust and highly recommend Dr. Bell. She's an Angel!
