Dr. John Bell, MD

Toledo/Akron Physician

"Following graduation from the Ohio State College of medicine in 1970, all of my post graduate training was at various Cleveland medical institutions with my fellowship in Hematology and Medical Oncology at University Hospitals of Cleveland. I then entered the practice of hematology/oncology and became chief of the division at South Pointe Hospital, now part of the Cleveland Clinic Healthcare System.  During this time I had several patients relate to me the pain relieving qualities of medical marijuana they utilized while vacationing in a few western states.  Following retirement, while working in hospice and palliative care, additional similar stories were related by both families and patients. When the state of Ohio began to certify physicians, I felt this would be an excellent way to further my career as well as be of help to those in need."
