What People Say About Dr. James Russell, DO
Reply
I had my first appointment with Dr. Russell today. He is such a nice guy and he really cares about you. He explains everything really well and gives you all of your options. I was nervous at first but he made me feel at ease right away. If you need a neurologist he is wonderful. Can't say enough about him.
