Patient Reviews (6)
Lansing, MI |
I would advise against seeing this doctor. She was very rude- like, shockingly rude. Tried to explain my symptoms but she didn't listen or care at all. I was never called with test results then the office staff treated my like I was an idiot for calling for the results, they said "Did someone forget to ask for results?" No, I was told I'd be called with results. After my appointment, I spoke to several other women who had the same complaints. I wish I would've known before. Left in tears.

I have been a patient of Dr. Russell's for years. She's delivered 2 of my boys and I've worked with her in the operating room during both vaginal and cesarean deliveries. She isn't the most talkative but she isn't rude. But she is by far one of the best surgeons we have around here. She cares deeply about her patients and provides excellent care.

I have had nothing but good experience with her. She always asked me if i had any questions and most of the time i did not but when i did she explained things clearly. Most importently she preformed my C-section and made sure to stop by twice in my room before i was discharged.
in Eaton Rapids, MI |
Rudest and most uncaring doctor I have ever met. No idea why people like her pursue medicine.
in Lansing, MI |
I am 66 years old and on Medicare and Blue Cross. I went for my annual exam and I was told that I didn't qualify for a pap smear. I called Blue Cross and was told I qualified for a pap every year. I made an appointment with Dr. Russell and she did a pap smear (I thought but she really did a pelvic exam). I waited for my test results and was told she never took a culture. She never told me this and lead me to believe that she had done a pap smear. Now she refuses to see me as a patient.
in Haslett, MI |
Dr. Russell is very nice and quick and efficient with her services. All of the staff are polite in person and over the phone. Even when I came in for a procedure I was scared about, she made sure it was quick, easy, and painless.
