I am Dr. Russo's patient. Dr. Russo helped me to get rid of all addictive prescription drugs. I have been using his magic device since March 2019. I have good sleep all most every night, no A-fib, no pills, and more energy and happiness. If you are looking for a good doctor for your sleeping problem, Dr. Russo is my recommendation, and he is one of the best in Hilo.

Saw dr. Russo for about 6 years for pain issues. Everything was all good I would go in for monthly medications no problem. Then in 2018, he started trying to cut me down (then eventually get me off) my pain meds which I did not agree with. Why all the sudden change something that's been working for me for 10 years? I was so upset that I changed providers. Not to mention that scheduling became difficult because he's always traveling. He had the best office staff back in 2014 he should have kept.

Dr. Russo is one of the only neurologists on Hawaii Island. That said, he is available and well liked by the other MDs I know. He has the equipment to make an analysis of the brain. Based on a few months treatment by him, I would recommend him to all I know.

Dr. Russo has been seeing my son for seizure disorder for the past year and a half. He has been excellent in every way: thoroughly explaining his medical condition, treatment options, medications and their possible effects. He and his staff show concern and compassion, are always friendly, courteous and helpful. My son did the overnight sleep testing, which was a helpful piece of the puzzle in figuring out his sleep patterns, and how they may contribute to his seizures. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Russo is patient, compassionate, and very knowledgeable in his fields of expertise. He listens very astutely to the patient's medical concerns and is able to just as importantly filter issues out not clearly expressed by the patient. His is courteous and professional in his demure. Dr. Russo answers all questions. He takes the time to talk and listen to both my child & me. His staff is friendly & prompt in responding patient check-ins & phone calls. We would definitely recommend Dr. Russo.
