After 50 years of outstanding service in the Pottstown and Phoenixville communities, Dr. Gerald Bell is retiring from Pinnacle ENT – Valley Forge Ear, Nose & Throat Associates Division on June 30. Though we are happy for him, we are also sad to see him go. The staff and patients at Pinnacle ENT will miss Dr. Bell dearly.
Dr. Bell was instrumental in bringing allergy and facial plastic surgery to the specialty of otolaryngology in the Philadelphia area. He received the National St. George Award from the American Cancer Society in 1995, a President’s Pin from the American Cancer Society, the Sword of Hope from the American Cancer Society, a citation from the Chapel of the Four Chaplains and the President’s Plate from the Philadelphia Laryngological Society.
Before arriving at Pinnacle ENT, Dr. Bell received his medical degree from Temple University in 1964. He also completed his internship at Long Beach Memorial and his surgical residency at Jeannes Hospital along with his otolaryngology residency at Temple University. Additionally, Dr. Bell is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and Philadelphia College of Physicians.
With his retirement, Dr. Bell now has more time to spend with his family, in addition to his passions for skiing and tennis. We all wish him well in his well-deserved retirement!
