I saw Dr. Sell for the first time on July 23 for a serious medical condition. I requested an appointment with Dr. Sell on the recommendation of a friend whose husband is a patient of his. They told me they were very pleased with Dr. Sell...that he was caring and compassionate and that they received excellent care from him. I found that Dr. Sell to be everything they said he was and more! He was professional yet friendly, he explained my condition in a way that was easy to understand and he listened carefully to what I had to say. When I came in for my visit, I was frightened about the surgical procedure I needed. After talking to Dr. Sell, I felt much more at ease about the surgery. After just one visit, I was extremely happy that I had chosen Dr. Sell to do my surgery.
