Dr. James Bell was born on Manhattan's East Side, but his parents quickly escaped to the hills of Vermont, where he grew up and learned to walk to school uphill both ways in winter. Jamie attended Harvard undergrad, where he originally thought he would be an archaeologist, but found digging in mud to find old bones a little boring. He moved back to Vermont to attend the University of Vermont Medical School, where he discovered he could be his normal goofy self, have fun, take care of children, and get paid for it. Jamie completed his residency program at Baystate Medical Center and joined Fairview Pediatrics in 2000. Dr. Bell has interests in astronomy, archaeology, and Star Wars. He is an accomplished juggler and "balancer." He can play the harmonica and clarinet, but wants to play the bagpipes. He plays paintball, foosball, and air hockey. He likes writing about himself in the third person. He is married with two boys.
