At Northwestern Medicine, our patient’s feedback is important to us. While different care providers have their own unique strengths, we strive to be as transparent as possible with our quality of care.
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 Ã¢â‚¬â€ asks about the medications she prescribes and if IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pushing an agenda or anything. She is agreeable and empathetic and I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t say enough about her. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d highly recommend her!
She was extremely impersonal. She didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t ask to move my clothes when she measured me, just moved them herself. It hurt when she measured me. Looking at the notes in the after visit summary, we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t talk about many of the things that it says we did. I did not feel comfortable with her.
This doctor made me feel extremely comfortable and made sure I understood all of my options for my care and let me decide what I wanted to do and not make it forced upon me. I appreciate that it means a lot especially in this specialty
As stated earlier, Dr. Russo treats patients with such warmth and professional manner. I trust her implicitly and that is why I have been her patient for over 20 years.
Her staff too is friendly and professional.
Dr Russo brings a depth of knowledge along with the ability to explain in a lay persons knowledge. Her compassion and kindness during stressful times and tests is so calming. 10 years ago she delivered my daughter and has been a bright light in my care ever since.
Dr Russo is very kind, patient and understanding to the needs of her patient. She is gentle, explains the procedure to her patient and answers every concern that I had. She is compassionate and accommodating. She stayed with me throughout the whole procedure. I really like her and I highly recommend Dr Russo for the care of other patients . Thank you Dr Russo.
Dr Russo is very personable and never makes me feel rushed or hurried during my procedure. She makes sure that I fully understand her analysis and recommendations. She is very thorough and is the best OB/GYN I have ever visited.
Dr. Russo was very kind. She took the time to explain things to me carefully and make sure to make me feel comfortable with the procedure she was doing. I would highly recommend the practice and specifically her as a physician
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been a patient of Dr. Russo for 15 years. Although IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve moved and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a little further away from her because she is so wonderful and delivered one of my children I continue to trust her and see her for my ongoing care.
I drive all the way from Springfield, IL to see Dr. Russo. This is not because there is a shortage of OBGYNs in my area, but because she is absolutely the best at what she does. Dr. Russo ordered an ultrasound on a fibroid that was discovered earlier last year, when other OBGYN's refused to do so and said I should wait 6 months for a follow-up. Because Dr. Russo ordered the ultrasound, we were able to see that I now have a second fibroid, which went undetected in the first ultrasound.
Dr. Russo also ordered a hormonal panel for me after I had a miscarriage in January. Again, other OBGYNs in my area refused to do so. The results from the blood work were paramount as we now know that I have low AMH levels and will likely need to puruse IVF. I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am to have Dr. Russo as my OBGYN.
