Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Russell "My approach to patient care is threefold. First, I want to make sure that the patient and his/her family understands what is going on. Many times that requires further investigation so that we can all determine exactly what is happening. Second, I want to make sure that the patient is on the best medical regimen possible for their specific issues. Third and finally, I understand that this condition is a marathon and I like to be there for the entire race. It isn't always easy, but hopefully, together, we can make a real difference in the patient's life."
