"The families at Odessa Brown make my job the best job in the world. I come from a community where people pull together in hard times, where elders are respected and cared for, and where the entire neighborhood looks after the children. When I moved from Minneapolis to Seattle I was thrilled to find a similar community at Odessa. People here really care about each other and the work that we do. Sure there are hard days and sad cases, but overall the work that is done is rewarding and the good far exceeds the hardships we experience some times. To know that I can help patients achieve health in every way that is defined be it medically, nutritionally, socially, emotionally, or even academically is more then I ever thought possible in one place."

Making a Difference

HANDS DOWN THE BEST PEDIATRICIAN IN SEATTLE! I have an 18 month girl and an 8 year boy, and she is fantastic with both of them! Dr. Bell encompasses all of the things that a pediatrician should. She listens, explains everything in laymen's terms, and makes you and your children feel like family! She ALWAYS goes the extra mile to offer any advice or activities for your children that would be helpful!. I honestly believe her to be the best kept secret in Seattle. I would highly recommend her to any parent with kids. She is so wonderful my son can't stop talking about her. He is actually brushing his teeth twice a day since she talked to him about it. Love her! Thanks Dr. Bell!
