Awful experience I only wish I switched doctors sooner. The office is so hard to get a hold of even through patient portal. Many tests were missed or overlooked which could have saved us so much time on this already long journey. Not to mention I actually met Dr Russell in person maybe one time. The staff handling my case blew me off on so many of my suggestions which my new clinic actually listened to and wondered why I was blown off because they were actually valid suggestions. Oh and if you're "just and IUI patient" be prepared to be ignored because you dont make them enough money. So glad I made the switch to RADFERTILITY it was a night and day experience.

Thanks to Dr Russel and his team. He is such a wonderful Dr. He knows what is best for his patients. I trusted him completely and went ahead in this journey. You might not see him so often during your visits. He will be there for initial consultation, important Scans, ER and Transfer, which are more important. So his time is best utilized. Thanks for diagnosing things at earlier stage and treating before starting off with IVF directly. (This is the most important factor in his success rates). He knows what is Right for you. His team is the best. Thank you so very much for making this journey completely worth it.

I came to Dr. Russell in August 2018 and received a full consultation and initial tests that same day. He made it clear that I'll be studied to figure out what type of infertility I had and his goal to was to for me to have a baby--and I'm happy to say it worked! My best bet for success was IVF and the first try I'm now 20 weeks pregnant with a boy. The most important thing Dr. Russell and his staff emphasized, along with following the protocols for medicines and injections, was to prepare my eggs through better nutrition, so for 3 months prior to my retrieval I adjusted my diet to eat less carbs and more protein. It's great that an MD cares and understands about nutrition.

Dr. Russell and his staff helped us to have two beautiful children (2015 and 2018) through IVF when everything else didn’t work. He is patient and knowledgeable, as well as personable and caring. Even though the process can be stressful, he made sure I was well informed and supported me through it..with a wonderful outcome.

Please do your research before deciding to use Dr. Russell! He is extremely unprofessional, unethical and arrogant. I was made to feel as though I wouldn’t be successful unless we moved on to donor eggs. After getting a second opinion & doing another cycle with our new doctor we found this to be completely wrong! He is quick to pass blame on the patient if the results aren’t what he stated in your initial consult (which I find to be embellished & not statistically correct) Beware of Dr. Russell!

We were referred to Dr. Russell, My son ,Daughter in-law and myself saw the Dr. The Dr was Great, But it is hard for me to believe that with both of my Childrens insurance it will still cost them about 9,000.00 for an invitro, So once again their Dreams have been shot down of having a child.

Dr. Russell is the best doctor I have ever had. A friend referred me to him after her 1st successful IVF with him, and going to see him for infertility is honestly the best decision I ever made. Dr. Russell diagnosed me quickly (severe endometriosis) and performed surgery to address it and repair my clubbed fallopian tubes. My first attempt at IVF was successful and I am now 13 weeks pregnant and could not be happier. I will definitely be returning to Dr. Russell when it is time for baby #2.

Delighted with Dr. Russell and his entire team at DIRM, Newark, DE. It's a painful decision for every family who visits an infertility clinic, but Dr. Russell eased our concerns and made us feel confident about having a healthy pregnancy and baby, right from day 1. He may have a no-nonsense manner, but this calm helped me after years of frustration and depression from pregnancy failures. Plus, he really cares about diagnosing root cause, instead of pushing expensive but ineffective treatments.
