Good guy....I would recommend Dr Russell to all my friends and family if asked. Down to earth, very relateable if you're a middle-aged guy looking for a caring, no-nonsense doctor.

I have been a patient for 9 years and have received excellent care. Dr. Russell listens to me and has sent me to another cardiologist so that they may confer on what is the best plan for my health. The only problem that I have had is promptness and an often rude office staff.
