Answered all of my questions and cleared up all my concerns. I was able to leave satisfied and completely knowledgeable of all my health issues. Its a pleasurable experience knowing all my visits are hassle free.

I'm a young man with autism and the dr and staff treated me with respect and kindness

June 29, 2015

My concerns were with my sons heart murmur was that sometimes he would receive a EKG with his echogram and I asked when he would need to receive another one EKG exam and no one ever seems to answer my concerns or questions about that procedure every time I come for check up on both of my children.

June 09, 2015

Doctor never introduced herself or shook our hand upon entering room. Did not explain the EKG he had.

We love Dr. Russo. She was highly recommended to us and we would highly recommend her to others. If she can't call back right away, she will email us with a contact time. We have never been disappointed.

Dr. Russo was very good about describing EKG test results and used terms that were easy to understand. One slight criticism was that when she entered the room, she did not introduce herself. Since was was not wearing a lab coat (and had one a dress) I wasn't sure (at first) if she was a staff person or the doctor.

Dr. Russo is very good with kids and knowledgeable about her area
