    I had an appointment with Dr. Russo and only waited about 5 minutes. His staff was very friendly, and he was extremely through and patient making sure I understood everything completely. He was very friendly and made sure he answered all my questions. Where as other Dr.s have made me feel like I was wasting their time,,this was definitely not the case with Dr. Russo. Thank you Dr. Russo!!! Teresa Marshall.

    These reviews must be made by his staff, friends & family. He was the worst physician I’ve ever seen. I waited almost an hour to be seen and he didn’t even touch my shoulder (which has several tears/injuries) He even accused the radiology report & imaging to be wrong! Who does that?! I will let everyone I possibly can know about his HORRIBLE bedside manner. Such a sad world when healthcare is all about money.

    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.

    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.
