What People Say About Dr. Russell Eldridge, MD

I met with Dr. Eldridge initially for follow up re: abnormal blood results. The initial appointment I was impressed that he’d read my medical record, that he was honest, allayed my fears at seeing a hematologist/oncologist, & was frank with his comments. He assured me that he didn’t think anything ominous was going on; but after running some blood work he’d have more of an idea. IF the blood work was worrisome he’d call. At follow up blood work was fine! Really liked him & his way of working!

Told me the side effects I was having to ACTH chemo were in my head. Continued to ignore them even after I was hospitalized for them. I broke out, had sores in my mouth, had ringing in my ears and felt like I was dying. He didn't care. With all my complications, he tried to pass me off to a PA. When my husband and I pulled my medical records, we found that this doctor had falsified my medical records. Find someone who cares.
