Excellent experience!

Dr. Russo performed open-heart surgery (five bypasses) on me. He did a great job and has a great bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone.

I had the best care ever with Dr Russo and his staff.

Dr Russo has helped us through a very serious heart problem. He is dedicated to doing everything he can to help us recover, it shows and we feel it. He is a very busy heart surgeon, yet he continues to spend time w helping us w recovery issues. We will always have the highest esteem for this great man.
