My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

The triple aim for all my patients is longevity balanced with high functionality and contentment. For some, safety may need to be added to the equation. While these goals may sound simple, none of them can be achieved without good health. What you need to do to stay healthy may depend on family history and the lifestyle choices you make. My job is to help you assess your individual risk of chronic diseases and help you to avoid them or identify them for early intervention. I will help you navigate through an increasingly complex healthcare system. I am your coach to help you maintain the physical capacity to work, play and travel for as long as you can. We will work through your unique health and life challenges and celebrate them together. I want you to be the best you for your friends, your family and yourself.

I have a sub-specialty in Infectious Diseases and my primary care patients benefit from integrated infectious disease care. I also provide travel health counseling and immunizations. I will care for you and be your attending physician if you ever require admission to the Queen's Medical Center.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Bello

from Robert in HI March 12, 2020 for Erlaine F. Bello, MD, MS, FACP

Dr. Bello has been my primary care doctor for over 20 years and has treated both me and my late wife. She always listens to my problems and acts with compassion in a timely manner. She monitors all of my problems and is quick to recommend other doctors for any problems I have. I sincerely hope that she will be here for me for many more years.

I became Dr. Bello's patient sometime in the early to mid-1990s, and have never regretted it--except when she lectures me for being remiss about taking care of myself, which is always a sobering, and often embarassing, experience. My routine exams are considerably more thorough than the regular exams I hear my friends and relatives describe when talking about their own physicians. She… See more

from Benedict in HI March 11, 2020 for Erlaine F. Bello, MD, MS, FACP

I currently see 5 specialist doctors. Each is aware of the others treatment for me. I truly feel confident under Dr. Bello's care. i do appreciate all my heath care providers instructions but best respond to Dr. Bello's advice. I can truly say that as a man well into his 60's, my experience with Dr. Bello is the first time I feel "taken care of". I am very… See more

from Julienne in HI March 10, 2020 for Erlaine F. Bello, MD, MS, FACP

This story happened well before Dr. Bello became part of MD-VIP, but it shows her commitment to her patients and is what makes her a good representative of MD-VIP and efforts to improve the doctor-patient relationship and care. I had collapsed and blacked out twice at home. I felt fine the next day. I didn't hit my head and didn't have any bumps on it either, but I was urged by… See more

from Debbie in HI March 16, 2018 for Erlaine F. Bello, MD, MS, FACP

As a Nurse Manager of an Acute care inpatient unit, I knew of Dr. Bello, 1) how she cares for her patients, 2) how she earns respect of physician colleagues, medical students, staff nurses and keeps up to date with new medical research data and information. She is an excellent diagnostician and sincerely takes the time to care for her patients.

from NORMA in HI March 10, 2018 for Erlaine F. Bello, MD, MS, FACP

When I left the Tripler Army Medical Center, it was to find a more personalized shared approach to my healthcare than I'd experienced there. Dr Erlaine Bello certainly embodies all that I'd hoped to find in my primary care physician. For me, her high level of professional competence and integrity are givens. I like that she's direct and straightforward in her explanations (… See more
