What Our Patients Say

Dr. Bell is great. Went over in detail what he was going to do and what the problems were. His staff is incredibly kind from what I’ve seen so far.

I just completed my second endarterectomy performed by Doctor Mark Sinning. I have nothing but praise for his surgical skill and team. I was always informed of what was to happen, potential problems and all necessary information to keep me knowledgeable in the treatment. I’m so glad I had the procedures done by Dr Sinning and his team.
