My husband and I both have been treated by Dr. Russell at the Mobile Infirmary Cancer Center. I had rectal cancer in 2014 and my husband had Prostate Cancer in 2008. His staff was excellent, his "bedside manner" was the best, his facility is clean and pleasant and I cannot think of one bad thing to say about the entire experience. We are both CANCER FREE now and all thanks to GOD and to John Russell!!!

I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Russell. He spends as much time as you need explaining the radiation procedures and answering your questions. He never treats you as anything less than a person with concerns that deserve to be addressed.
