Dr. Russo is one of those doctors who treats you like a person when you meet, not a number or just a set of symptoms. I think it comes from years of the kind of self-confidence that enables him to just do what he does knowing it's going to work, so he can focus on you, not just your condition.

Have been going to Dr Russo for over 20 years and he is the best. Warm, friendly, patient and a great diagnostic doctor. He gives you as much time as you need and explains everything both good and bad but makes you feel comfortable. I have and will continue to recommend him and the practice. ...more

Dr. Russo has been my Cardiologist for about 18 years and I'm still kicking. My wife is a retired R.N. and she uses him and recommends him to all of our friends.
