    in New Orleans, LA |
    I am a doctor and heard from friends that Dr.Russo is who I should see for my knee. He was polite, incredibly informative, and fixed my problem with a minor surgery. I can not imaging having a better surgeon take care of me and my patients.
    in Kenner, LA |
    Dr. Russo is extremely nice and friendly. It is very important for me to have a doctor that makes you feel comfortable and listens to what you have to say as well as giving excellent medical care. He never makes you feel rushed. Appointments are never difficult to schedule and wait times in the office are minimal. Front desk staff is very friendly as well. I highly recommend Dr. Russo.
    Great bedside manner, knowledgeable, would highly recommend.
