    Dr. Russell was my anesthesiologist yesterday for a parathyroidectomy. He was so kind and concerned. When he came to visit me pre-op, I had a migraine headache going on and he immediately went and got a start on my anesthesia which took the headache away. The last time I had surgery was 62 yrs ago with ether...this experience was a joy compared to that one!! Dr. Russell is my first choice if I ever need to have surgery again!! Thank you, Dr. Russell for a job well done! Kathryn M.

    Dr. Russell was the anesthesiologist this year during my first ever surgery. He is absolutely the best! Truly a people person and makes you feel so comfortable and prepared on what to expect. He spent a lot of time with me before going to the OR. I remember joking and laughing with him before - then I was out like a light! (Which is exactly what you want). I had minimal nausea afterwards & it was gone very quickly. If I ever have a surgery again (knock on wood) I hope he's my anesthesiologist!
