Dr. Russo has treated me the past five years. He listens and does not rush. He got me through the trauma of a triple bypass. I am lucky to have him.

He is rude, dismissive, and abrupt. Maybe he has good medical skills, but it is hard to tell as he has zero people skills.

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. His MA Krystal is also the best. She makes you feel comfortable and MOST important is that she is responsive to all calls and emails. She always contacts me in the appropriate amount of time.

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.
