After an initial appointment for sleep study, it has been 6 weeks without any word from his office regarding scheduling of the test. The only contact has been initiated by myself, and after 3 calls in, still no word. if a physician cannot handle his patient load, he should not be in practice.

The first time I went to Dr. LoRussos office I was very nervous. I had been having some health issues and was recommended to see him by my Cardiologist. After the initial breathing tests, etc. I saw the Dr., and was extremely impressed. He was very personable and made me feel very much at ease. His recommendations were very successful, although I am at this point having issues again, but that is obviously not his fault. I would highly recommend him to any of my family, friends or anyone !
