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!

She was extremely impersonal. She didn’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 didn’t talk about many of the things that it says we did. I did not feel comfortable with her.

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.
