My experience with Dr Reginald Bell, Kate Freeman & staff was totally outstanding, in every way!
My experience with the hospital was marginal: eg, not responding to my call for assistance, staff giving wrong information, "Patient Discharge General Information" wasn't even legible -- these are just a few examples! I find these kinds of things to be very important to me/my care -- & what is very reasonable to expect from such a big, well-known hospital! However, certain individuals were fenominal.

Our first visit with Dr. Woodworth was a telehealth appointment. He was very informative and compassionate. He helped us gain a clear understanding of the linx band surgery, and he made us feel very confident in our decision. Surgery was scheduled very quickly. He visited with me before surgery and with my husband after it. We are very happy that we had Dr. Woodworth do my surgery.

Dr Woodworth performed & Open Ventral Hernia surgery on me. Prior to surgery he & his PA Alyssa educated me on the procedure, & answered all my questions. Surgery went smoothly, no complications. I had a question one day post op, Alyssa called me back within an hour. Very impressed with them & their practice! Thank You for your Knowledge & Professionalism.

JODY K. | May 23, 2023
Dr Bell performed surgery on my hiatal hernia and performed a fundoplication on my esophagus on May 16 2023. I believe the Dr and his crew put the patients well being to heart. Everything at the robotic surgery hospital went very well. Scheduling and contact could use some improvement however, that’s why I deducted one star.

Before we arrived every detail was covered including insurance. When we got to the facility we were greeted immediately and informed as to how things would go that day. When we went back for preop everyone was friendly and professional and clearly answered every question. All the people involved in the surgery introduced themselves and came by to see us, including the surgeon. The procedure went perfectly, and the postoperative care was thorough and patient.This truly is a “Center of Excellence “!!

Dr Woodworth was awesome!!! The entire staff are all very attentive. This was my second surgery at this institute. I live in southern NM and was happy to drive the distance to be treated here. I highly recommend the Institute of Esophageal and Reflux Surgery.

One day out from surgery…some expected post-op soreness and uncomfortableness but well-tolerated. Just have to follow meal requirements to the letter and expect 100% recovery and results. Dr. Bell, Kate-his NP, Tiffanie, and all the staff are A-1 And the best thing?…. NO MORE BAD REFLUX AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!!! Thank you for your EXPERT help!! Mark Reinhart, PA-C ( retired ).
Mark R. | Jan 04, 2023

Darlene M. | Dec 30, 2022
I had a full Nissen Fundoplication in 2005 and it had loosened over the years. I contacted 2 medical facilities in 2019 to have it redone because of my acid reflex issues. I was told that it was complicated because of a hiatal hernia and might be dangerous due to my age and respiratory underlying conditions. I was recently prescribed a more potent reflex medication.
I was referred to Dr. Woodworth by the National Jewish Health in Denver. I was able to schedule an appointment fairly quickly.
Dr. Woodworth performed a robotic labroascopic redo surgery for me. The hernia was removed and a partial fundoplication was done. I was very happy as this is what I wanted done in 2019.
Three weeks out and I am healing well from the surgery with no more reflux.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Woodworth to anyone who is seeking a nissan redo surgery.

Dr. Woodworth went over and above to make sure I was taken care of right away.
TRACEY M. | Nov 06, 2022
Everything from the initial pre-op appointment to the post surgery departure was excellent. Dr. Woodworth and his staff are personable, caring and knowledgeable and made my linx surgical procedure smooth from beginning to end. Although swallowing is still somewhat not normal, I understand that it’s only been four days post surgery and that things need to heal and scar before things back to normal. It does get better day by day and look forward to being ant-acid medication free and no longer have chronic heartburn.
DAVID B. | Nov 04, 2022
Dr. Woodworth is great!

Evanie A. | Oct 20, 2022
I was so terrified this time around and I don't know why, as I am usually okay to go through any surgery. The staff was AMAZING at calming me down and making me feel that everything was going to be okay, and that I was in great hands with the best doctor and team. I had a wonderful experience despite having to go through this surgery.
Evanie A. | Oct 19, 2022
Dr. Bell and his team are kind, caring, and extremely thorough in their diagnosis and in the formulation of the optimal treatment plan that is best for each individual patient. He is a masterful surgeon, and takes the routine-of course, but also the most complicated and challenging cases and people far and wide seek him out for his care. All the while, through his thoughtfulness and empathy, you can be assured that you are in the best possible hands.
Charles G. | Oct 19, 2022
Dr. Woodworth was wonderful and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr Bell is the best in his field. I traveled over 200 miles to have his treatment, instead of any other surgeon in my insurance network. He is kind, informative and compassionate. My health has improved since his surgeries.
WILLIAM W. | Sep 07, 2022
I researched my surgery and Dr Woolword kept e well informed on what to expect. My surgery went as expected because I trusted the doctors and the staff reassured me. I am excited about not having to deal with acid reflux any longer.

MARK H. | Aug 09, 2022
Everyone was very care giving before and after surgery. But, no one called to check on me the day after, and it was extremely hard to receive any response for my emails and phone calls!
Lucy A. | Aug 05, 2022
My experience was wonderful with Dr. Bell and his staff. I was admitted to Sky Ridge on an emergency GI bleed that was being caused by my Hiatal Hernia. The general surgeon on call at the hospital wanted to do surgery very quickly. I did not get a good feel from her, so I canceled my surgery, and got released from the hospital on a Saturday. I did my research over the weekend and saw that Dr. Bell was highly recommended and qualified to do the surgery. So I called the office on Monday morning, explained my situation and amazingly, they got me in that afternoon to see me. Both Dr. Bell and Kat his NP, were so comforting and informative. Dr. Bell arranged me to have surgery the next day…Tuesday. He stayed late on his surgery day to fit me in. That is what an outstanding doctor and human being he is. My surgery went extremely well. And I know I made the right decision by having him do the surgery. My best advice to anyone that needs a Hiatal Hernia surgery, please go to a foregut specialist, and try to go to Dr. Bell. He is truly amazing, you won’t regret it. Do not have a general surgeon do the surgery.
Cynthia L. | Aug 03, 2022
Informative and let me know what to expect. All staff that worked with me knew exactly what needed to be done . Thank you

Steven C. | Jul 06, 2022
Got in early and procedure went well. Post-op descriptions seem on point so far.
John Q. | Jun 21, 2022
I was well cared for. The only problem was all the duplication in preregistration for 3 different procedures. I recommend everyone share my initial registration so I don't get asked to fill out forms 3 different times.
