Dr. Russo is one of the best DR's I have ever had.She really listens to me and takes my concerns very seriously.I would highly recommend her, but then it will be even harder to get to see her.I'm joking about that I would recommend her to my friends and family who needed a new obgyn.

Dr. Russo is one of the BEST doctors I have ever seen. Her care and compassion come through and she is thorough with me each and every time I come. She is patient and will spend the time needed to talk with me about what I am going through and various options for care. She is excellent and a true professional.

I have ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE WITH DR. RUSSO...I have seen her for the last 10+ years. That is why I continue to see her. Along with her being EXTREMELY compassionate and caring, she spent all the time to share my issues with her. I DID NOT FEEL RUSHED AT ALL! She was extremely caring & gentle in the exam that I decided to have...(she was very kind in giving me the option of not having the exam and said it was my decision). I have recommended her to several women and will continue to do so. In the future, I will see her as she is the VERY BEST GYNECOLOGIST. There was no need to discuss medication issues or follow-up care. She will communicate with me after my mammo, bone-density, & ultrasound test.
