SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Exceptional physician - love this guy!

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Again, this visit was different, and much better than past visits. I saw the dr. directly, rather than a physician's assistant - Much more information and better guidance from the doctor.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Bellino is the master of patient care, both in the office and in the OR. He clearly explains everything he is doing in terms I can understand, and uses the xrays, old and new, for comparisons. He, like the PA, listened to my concerns, asked appropriate probing questions, and made sure my questions were addressed to my satisfaction, again, in terms I could understand. Can't ask for more than that in a surgeon.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Belling and Mena are terrific!

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Could Not Be More Happy With The Care And The Staff So Far .

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I have 100% confidence in Dr. Bellino. he is kind, friendly, highly qualified, takes the time to talk to you and to listen to your concerns and answers your questions. He does not make you feel rushed. I would and have recommended him to others. I think he is a fantastic surgeon and Dr.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

I'm always handing out Dr. Bellino's business cards.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Very good Dr I would recommend him for surgery to my friends

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

When he first came in, he showeed me the x-ray and said things looked good. He seemed to be on his way out the door, but when I started asking questions, he slowed down a bit and took the time needed to answer my questions and concerns.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr Bellino is amazing and I would recommend everyone I know to him

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Bellino is extremely caring and kind. I feel well taken care of by him and know he listens to me and respects what I say to him. His "bedside manner" is wonderful.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Bellino was extremely thorough and even showed me my x-rays to best explain his diagnosis and treatment plan.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

I will always trust Dr. Bellino with my complicated orthopedic problems.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

He is the best dr.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Bellino's medical knowledge and skills, as well as his interpersonal skills. He is always very "present" and takes as much time as is needed to be sure that I understand his feedback about my condition/recovery and answers all of my questions, as well as any questions my wife may have. He is an exceptional doctor!

SHC Patient, May 2015

I do not have a problem with the medical care that I finally received from Dr. Bellino. Although two infections following surgery is not a good sign.

SHC Patient, May 2015

I asked about some advice given to me by a member of the doctor's team (given to me when I was still in the hospital following the surgery) and neither Dr. Bellino or his PA, Meena, were aware of this advice -- it had to do with the surgeons discovering some possible tumors around a bone-harvesting site accessed during the surgery -- and I am still not satisfied with Meena's responses via the My Health email message system. This is a little disturbing because if it is malignant, I want to know about it; and the doctor and PA don't seem to know where this information came from. I will continue to follow up until I get a satisfactory answer.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Definitely excellent and professional personnel.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Not enough experience with him to rate in depth. So far so good, though.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Bellino and his staff have been excellent in every way. I have extensive medical issues and they ALL were extremely thorough to make sure i was cared for in the best way possible. I couldn't have been more pleased.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Bellino is excellent; I have interviewed several surgeons and he had the perfect balance between seriousness and friendliness. He took my questions seriously. The only "weakness", if he had one, was not being as concerned about aftercare (PT, recovery, etc) as I would have liked...but he eventually came around and answered my questions, when I explained my reasons for wanting to know the info in advance. He's a true professional.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Very high confidence in care provided by both Dr. Bellino and Dr. Bishop

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

OK.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Bellino provides amazing care!

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

It was really excellent.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Recently everyone has been superb.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

We are still puzzled as to why I'm having so much trouble, at least he now acknowledges something is wrong.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Trust and feel confident re: treatments and care!

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Great doctor, PA and staff. Thank you all! Some of the best medical care I have ever received!

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

They were all amazing.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Bellino is THE BEST.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Bellino's surgery skills will allow me to wait again with the use of a wheelchair or a crutch. I can't thank him enough.

SHC Patient, May 2014

While all the staff has been pleasant, the communication between.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

I recommended Dr. Bellino to 2 of my friends who after my hip replacement had theirs done.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Emergency surgery for badly broken leg - Dr. Bellino is the best!

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

Bellino, has his hands full w/me, but I feel honored & blessed to have my hips, in his hands.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

Doctor wonderful - personality: Prima Dona.
