      Dr. Russo is the BEST surgeon that I know. I had a condition that needed a valve replacement. I was referred to Dr. Russo who briefly explained the process to me and scheduled my surgery. My family wanted to take me to NY and get a second opinion. However I am blessed with a cousin who is a doctor in Detroit and who did all the handholding for me. When I mentioned about Dr. Russo to him, he did his homework and told me that I don’t need to go for any second opinion and just schedule my surgery with Dr. Russo. I am so glad that I listened to him and trusted my life to Dr. Russo. I had this major life changing event yesterday and today I am writing this review for Dr. Russo. My family and I thank Dr. Russo for giving me a new life. I am already feeling so much better. He is the finest Structural Heart Surgeon in the country and today I proudly say that he took care of me. God bless you Dr. Russo ????????????

      i was transferred to beth isreal from my local hospital. they told me they were sending me to the best doctor to do surgery on me. dr. russo did several procedures on my heart, 5 by passes, repaired my aoerta, gave me a new porcine valve (my kids started calling me miss piggy) and several other things that have left my mind for the moment. besides being a very talented surgeon, dr. russo was a concerned doctor who was caring and attentive to my many problems. God bless him!
