I felt the staff and doctor was very friendly and very knowledgeable! They are great with working with children!
dr Russo was extremely nice and explained my daughters situation. we were very pleased with her care.
everyone there is great and ama big
I was extremely satisfied with the doctor and the concern that she should us.
Dr. Russo engaged my child in conversation, and communicated respectfully with our family. Thankfully my child's condition will not require any further visits with the cardiologist, but if he did, we would certainly return to Dr. Russo.
Dr. Russo made my child feel important and encourage him to continue with good meal habits
our doctor visit went really well all of our worries and concerns were answered
dr Russo is such an amazing doctor!!! highly recommended
very good !
Dr. Russo is a great doctor. She always listens and is very helpful! I think she is wonderful and trust her a lot.
everyone in this office is wonderful.
an ok experience
Dr. Russo is always very professional and thorough.
Great experience with this provider. Very informative and we have never felt rushed.
Only complaint is I wish appointments were easier to get. Waited 2 months for appointment. However, I will say that I appreciated how timely the staff and doctors were. It's not easy keeping a baby content for testing and they did their part in not keeping up waiting longer than necessary.
visit went very well. Everyone was nice and polite. we felt very comfortable the entire visit.
No complaints, would recommend the office and doctor.
DR. Russo is intelligent and good with children
We wanted answers for our son and Dr.Linda Russo progided us with answers the same day as visit!! Couldn't thank her more
Dr. Russo and staff are excellent.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience with Dr. Russo's office and staff! Especially the technician who did my son's Echo (Dave) was amazing!
I just turned 18. I asked my mother to come because this visit was different than a regular check up. Dr. Russo was nice to me but I felt like she was short with my mother when she had questions and that made me feel awkward. My mother didn't care but I did.
Dr. Russo was very thorough and I felt very confident with her expertise
Dr. Russo is an excellent physician. I trust her completely with my daughter's health issues.
The doctor was excellent. She provided some new information that differed from a previous provider. After I left I realized I was confused. I used the online health system to send her a lengthy message with questions. The doctor responded with a detailed, comprehensive message just 2 hours later. I was very impressed with her responsiveness. I appreciated her desire to handle my concerns herself and to personally ensure I understood my sons condition.
love dr. russo!!!!!!!!!!
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
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.
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
