I appreciate him 100% for everything he has done.
I tore my ACL this year and couldnít play my senior season in football. He made sure that my knee was right for my future no matter how much I wanted to get back on the field and I appreciate him 100% for everything he has done. Kendall Dallas, Texas
I would recommend Dr. Bell and his associates with confidence to anyone in need of joint repair.
I have had knee pain for nearly a decade but put off doing anything about it for fear of the surgery. I kept finding various workarounds to compensate for losing more and more mobility. My quality of life was really suffering, and it was obvious I would not be able to walk if I did nothing. A visit with Dr. Bell inspired my confidence in him and his ability to restore what I had been losing over the years. I felt very reassured about having surgery after our meeting. Dr. Bell has assembled an excellent surgical team, and I was very confident about having both knees replaced at one time. I understand replacing both at one time is unusual, however, they had deteriorated to the point that it had to be done. The procedure went without a problem, and I am in the process of recovering. I would recommend Dr. Bell and his associates with confidence to anyone in need of joint repair. Wayne Dallas, Texas
We would highly recommend this doctor to anybody in a heartbeat. Great job doc!
Dr. Bell is a young doctor who will put you at ease and spend some time with you to make sure everything is covered. He is not in a hurry (maybe that is why the wait could be little longer sometimes), once he is with you, he is all yours. His bedside manners are outstanding. He replaced my husband's both knees and he did excellent job. My husband is as good as new again. We would highly recommend this doctor to anybody in a heartbeat. Great job doc! Karen Rockwall, Texas
