Good overall experience. It’s always difficult to find a new doctor when you move but I found Kathleen Bell was thorough and answered all my questions. She has a great bedside manner. I would definitely recommend her. I have now found my new GYN office.

She was genuinely concerned about making things as easy on me as possible which in my general experience with a lot of different medical specialists is usually only perfunctory at best. She was very personable and, dare I say, even funwhile still projecting knowledge and confidence that I found very reassuring. Now I know first hand why my sister kept raving about her!

Kathleen Bell is hands down the best doctor I have ever been seen by. She is respectful, kind, compassionate and generous with her time. She makes me feel heard as a patient. She is never too quick to give a diagnosisor assume she knows best. She is always thorough and makes referrals. She airs on the side on caution and likes to cover all of her bases. I personally believe that more doctors should be practicing medicine like Kathleen Bell. I wish she could write a book or how to guide on how she practices medicine. I would love if all my doctors could read such a book. Kathleen is the only doctor I have that I feel truly knows me and understands my health and my medical desires. This is as a result of the time and care she spends during her appointments. She makes eye contact with me, nods, and shows me she is listening. She never cuts me off or interrupts me. She never makes me feel like she has somewhere else to be (even though I’m sure she does.) I feel I could go on and on. I have recommended Kathleen to more than one friend and person. My fiancé and I plan to have children shortly after our wedding. I pray that Kathleen is still working at Physicians and Midwives when I have my own children. I trust her fully and that is all you can want in a doctor. Thank you Kathleen!!!

Kathleen Bell was the first medical provider I've come across in the DC/Metro Area that truly cares about her patients. She listened to all of my concerns, answered my questions, and thoroughly addressed treatment options. She is also verypersonable and funny. I would highly recommend her because I have not found any doctors around here who take their time with patients. She did not act like she was in a rush at all--even when my appointment was at 4:30 on a Friday afternoon.
