Jenny got me in very quick because I was in so much pain, She was so nice. He was very kind and when I had more questions I called his office back and Marybeth who is his nurse answered all my questions and was so helpful. This office is all around wonderful
San Antonio, TX |
His nurse and staff are just wonderful! Marybeth helps my mom by saving her samples every month of medicine that her insurance will not pay for. The office is just wonderful.

I wanted to get on here to share my amazing experience I had with this office. My son was not a patient of Dr Russells for an injury/surgery he had at a different facility. However, I called the office asking for help. His nurse, Marybeth, called me back and LISTENED and helped so much. She hurt for us it was refreshing having someone CARE who didn't know us. She got us in with Russell and Dr Russell did surgery on him and he can walk and work. This office is a blessing

Dr. Russel is fantastic. In my four year ordeal after a work accident he is the only Dr. who actually seemed to care about me, spent time with me, and actively defended me when my work comp case worker kept pushing for less effective and cheaper treatments. He made sure I got the operation I needed, and the day of surgery I was wheeled back in a chair; I walked out after under my own power and never had a twinge of pain. He is a brilliant Dr.

He is a wonderful doctor. He explains everything in detail and has great bedside manner
