Dr. Russo is wonderful. She is professional, but also very easy to talk to and she is interested in building relationships with her patients. She always makes me feel comfortable and cared for, and I always feel I can ask her questions and voice concerns and she takes the time to thoroughly address them and what I also appreciate is that she also involves me in my own care — asks about the medications she prescribes and if I’m okay with them, any recommendations she makes she asks if I agree or find them appealing and sustainable. I know I can trust Dr. Russo to take great care of me and know I can trust her advice/recommendations. I also appreciate her honesty and candor and never feel like she’s pushing an agenda or anything. She is agreeable and empathetic and I can’t say enough about her. I’d highly recommend her!

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care.
