I went to Dr. Russo because I had a flutter in the area of my heart. He has the patience of Job. I have had many doctors over the years.. I am 74 and have never hestitated to see the doctor, so this isn't my first time at the rodeo. I would highly recommend Dr. Russo as he is not only an MD but a PhD as well. I trust him completely.
