We regret the repetitiveness in our queries while seeking a clearer understanding of the information shared by the esteemed doctor. We communicate with the ASL interpreter privately, requesting that they kindly convey the tones of the responses while we observe their body language and facial expressions. Our interactions with Dr. Russell have been satisfactory. It has become evident to both my wife and me that we should limit the number of questions or concerns we raise. Moving forward, we will restrict our inquiries to one or two questions or concerns to facilitate a more efficient consultation with the doctor. Please know that our intention is not to be burdensome. Dr. Russell is a compassionate professional; however, he may prefer a more direct approach to questioning, as he conveys information. We acknowledge his exceptional expertise and proficiency in his field.

VERY impressed with all the doctor shared! He spent so much time in the room--really shocking! Learned so much and the course of action is already helping so much (less than a week)
