Russo has performed my colonoscopies for years, but it wasn't until I had a significant digestive issue that I found out he is rude, inattentive and condescending. He's so sure he knows everything that he won't even consider the symptoms you're experiencing with your very own body. Also, he's very quick to refer patients for gastric bypass procedures which he obviously won't submit to himself. After giving him several opportunities to address my gastro-issues I'm done.

Dr. Russo and his entire staff are excellent. I could not ask for better treatment. I was really worried about being put to sleep because of an extreme sensitivity to drugs, but was assured by the anesthesiologist that he would not leave my side until I was awake. The nurses both in prep, the actual procedure and recovery were all very attentive. Would highly recommend Dr. Russo.

I found in the first appointment he was very attentive and eager to help. Following visits once my case became out of the normal treatments, he blamed other doctors and diagnoses for my gastric issues. Finally, I had an endoscopy procedure done and he open admitted that the other diagnoses were correct and suggested acupuncture to treat my gastroparesis. He referred me to another GI and stated it was not medically urgent for me to be seen. After me constantly vomiting.

The friendly professionalism of Dr. Russo and his staff removes all the possible anxiety that occurs when you know you are going to be put to sleep and undergo a medical procedure.. It is a pleasure to speak to all the friendly folks that take care of you and see to it that you are comfortable before and after the procedure.
