Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Russo’s for 20+ years, and I’ve never had a negative result. Dr. Russo is friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and always professional. He and his staff go above and beyond to make sure your experience is a positive one. Highly recommend!

Before my first visit and during, his staff repeatedly bolsters his expertise. However, not only did his work leave my face bruised and distorted, but the manner in which he and his staff behaved afterwards was completely belittling and unprofessional. Be warned!

I would never recommend Dr Russo. My privacy wasn't respected and I found out that I had been discussed to an outside person. I have been told by three different health care professionals that Dr Russo did not do my fillers correctly. My dermis has been damaged and I have a permanent scar that is most noticeably. Save your money and do not go here!!!

I'm not one for leaving reviews but I felt my visit to Dr. Russo today deserved it! I contemplated getting injections in my face for some time (consult was 6 months ago) and finally made the plunge. I could not be happier with the results! I gave Dr. Russo my budget and he stayed within my budget and gave me the most "bang for my buck"! Not to mention, he is very personable and down to earth. His staff was also very knowledgable, and gave me great information. Would definitely recommend!

I was recently referred to Dr. Russo for a secondary septoplasty with the intent of fixing functionality and symmetry of my nose. All of my consultations were fast, easily understood, and Dr. Russo was incredibly knowledgeable. It has been approximately 10 days since the surgery, and the preliminary results are AMAZING. I would easily refer him to anyone needing nasal surgery.

Dr. Russo is engaging and extremely knowledgeable. He puts his patients at ease and spends more than adequate time answering question, and is very personable. Will likely be seeing Dr. Russ until he retires or I move out of State.
