Clinical Interests:

Dr. Clayton Bell’s medical practice combines cutting edge, evidence-based Western Medicine with the ancient healing wisdoms of the East. This blend allows the patient to be heard and seen on multiple levels: physical, mental, and spiritual. Dr. Bell has been shaped by his transformational personal and medical experiences both nationally and internationally. He has delivered babies in Maine, treated cholera epidemics in Haiti, taken a vision quest, ridden his bicycle across the country twice, and hiked across the Himalayas, Alps, Patagonia, and New Zealand. These experiences solidified Dr. Bell’s medical philosophy that the common thread to optimizing vitality and health lies with activating, supporting, and empowering the person to heal themselves from the inside out.
