Cathy K. Bell, MD

Practicing medicine since 2000

Dr. Bell has been in practice for 20 years.  She specializes in early childhood and learning differences.  Locally grown, she is passionate about helping Hawaii's children become healthy, successful and happy adults.  She attended Yale University prior to getting her medical degree at the University of Hawaii.  She then completed her residency training and received her board certifications in pediatrics, general psychiatry and child & adolescent psychiatry. She has worked in public & private sectors, in clinics and hospitals and in academic settings.  In 2015, she found her final destination at the Kahala Clinic for Children & Family.


Being a co-parent with her husband of three children, she knows first hand the struggles that exist in raising children together.  Despite how difficult it may seem along the way, she knows that success is possible and well worth it for the entire family.  She enjoys working with children and partnering with parents and schools to help children develop the skills that they will need as they grow up.  Working with children and seeing their excitement when they learn new skills brings her great joy.   It takes a village!
