Dr. Sunny Bell is absolutely wonderful. At each check up, she takes time to sit and ask how our daughter has been doing, gives us great feedback and reassurance regarding developmental milestones, and truly is so amazing with providing anticipatory guidance. She provides her undivided attention to the patient and family that is in front of her and does not let any question or concern get overlooked. Dr. Bell is exceptional at making each patient/family feel like they are her top priority. She is the most thorough provider I have ever encountered, so much so that she caught our daughter's hip dysplasia at a routine weight check, all because she was being carefully thorough and performing a full physical exam. Without Dr. Bell's attention to detail, I have no doubt that our daughter's leg would have ended up requiring surgery. However, because Dr. Bell is so wonderful at her job, our daughter's hip dysplasia was not only picked-up on, but also addressed and treated in an incredibly timely manner. We love Dr. Bell and feel so fortunate that she is our daughter's pediatrician. Every child deserves a pediatrician like Dr. Sunny Bell.

Dr. Bell always takes time to listen to my concerns. She helps me come up with solutions that are tailored to my family's needs. She is GREAT with my child. I never feel rushed. You can tell that she really cares about my son and our family. Dr. Bell, her nurses, and care techs, always asks me how we are, how our other family members are that they have met over the years, and really listen.
