Patient Comments (2)
Atlanta, GA |
Aesthetics of the waiting room was great however, empty on most visits. (95 peachtr). I should have stayed clear of this particular office. It appeared to be a party in session behind the check in window and the one patient attempting to make a copay to the front desk admin was a distraction. The med assist Jill was extremely harsh and boisterous as I attempted to schedule tests that my doc ordered. It appears that this is the culture of this practice. Don't let the name of this clinic fool you

I had a traumatic brain injury. Dr Russell literally saved me with his adjustment and attention to my Trileptal anti-seizure medication. He is attentive, professional, and his bedside manner is total empathy, and patient concern. He cares for the patient as a dear friend. If I was in a battlefield, I'd want Dr Russell beside me. He is determined to treat the illness and defeat it. He's a gentleman, and you can tell as a clinician, Dr Russell stays informed on the latest medical job knowledge.
