My ent retired and i have been on the hunt for a new ent for quite some time. I have to say that Dr. Paul made me feel like i was an afterthought. I explained my symptoms after driving 1 hour from queens and he basicly shrugged his shoulders and said you look all clear to me. I have been suffering from a clogged ear and extreme sinus pressure. It would of been nice if he went over options or other remedies to make me feel better.

I had a great experience with Dr. Bell! He was very thorough, and explained everything as he went. The office was organized and very welcome. I was stuck in traffic and about a half hour late and they still accommodated me. Excellent office and great doctor!

I was pleased with the exam. I felt he listened to my list of symptoms. He did a thorough exam(scoped my nasal passage). Told me what he thought was the problem. He gave me a sheet of foods to avoid and I received acid reflux meds. I return in 1 month to see if my symptoms are alleviated.

Finally an ENT who knows what they're doing. Dr. Bell is the 3rd ENT I saw before I was finally diagnosed with TMJ. The 2 other ENTs did hearing tests and gave me ear drops for an ear infection I didn't have. I'm so grateful to finally know what's wrong with me.

Great doctor!!! Went in absolute distress and the doctor took the time to explain the condition, treatment options, and answer all my (sometimes frivolous) questions. He was calming, reassuring, and just everything you could hope for in a doctor. I would recommend him over and over

Not attentive to my swollen tonsill, thought my issue was not a big deal. Did not do everything possible to find what's wrong. Just quickly examined me and took my insurance money.
