What People Say About Dr. Louis Russo, MD
Reply
Dr. Russo is an excellent cardiothoracic surgeon, as evidenced by my surgery and recovery - able to go home on day 3 of an expected 4-7 day stay! He is very personable and easy to talk with, and we are fortunate to have him in the Penn Highlands Healthcare system.
