Patient Comments (1)
in West Hollywood , CA |
My girlfriend was a new patient, who has hypothyroidism, told dr Russell of her concerns of losing hair, depression, and weakness, this went untreated for months. She neglected to review her results and after countless phone calls to get her on the phone she told my girlfriend that , I'm a conservative despite many red flags. Basically she went untreated now, she was tested by another dr and told these are obvious causes for concern and medication adjustments. This dr is not a keeper stay away
