I was there to have a six month checkup and review bloodwork. Dr. Russo was very Thorough in explaining what I needed to do to get my potassium levels back up and he discussed my thyroid level as well. I have a follow up appointment with my metabolic group to address this. He answered all of my questions and didn’t rush me. I felt very good about my visit and I felt like he really cared. He is always there when my husband and I need him.

Dr Russo was great unfortunately he ordered a stress test for me at Hendersonville hospital and when I got there the hospital stuck me in a registration room designed for 15 people with 41 people in there. A lot of people coughing and I didn’t feel comfortable staying in there during the Coronavirus episode. So I left.

I was an emergency patient. He found the root of my problem when others could not. He looked outside the norm. Turned out to be a simple issue praise God! I’ve only recently begun to have him as my primary cardiologist and I am extremely pleased.
