both the nursing staff and Dr. Russo were phenomenal. she made me and my son feel very comfortable. she appaeared extremely knowledgeable yet also was able to explain everything in a way I could understand. she was available for questions and didn't seem to be in a rush. very thorough.
Super impressed with the doctor's thoroughness and getting all the information we needed before we left the office so that we wouldn't need to schedule or call for anything else.
I am a twenty years and on the spectrum this was the first time I've gone into the Doctors without my parents and the made me feel like a grown up and showed me such respect
dr is amazing with children
DR RUSSO WAS AWESOME.
Dr. Russo is a huge asset to our son's team. We are grateful for her care, knowledge and time. Also, I would like to compliment the staff within the Cardiology department at Children's North, both clinical and clerical. Everyone there is always friendly, helpful and organized.
We love going to clinic in Wexford! The staff and Dr. Russo are always so kind and caring. They are very understanding and are always willing to comfort my child who is often crying and unsure of what will happen during his appointment.
We Came in with a lot of anxiety, of just "not knowing" but left calmy with a sense of clarity that everything would be alright and well taken care of.
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 made my child feel important and encourage him to continue with good meal habits
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.
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
Dr. Russo and staff are excellent.
We wanted answers for our son and Dr.Linda Russo progided us with answers the same day as visit!! Couldn't thank her more
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.
