I didn't receive enough information on what I was being prescribed and why. And if surgery is going to be needed, I did not receive hardly any info of what that truly means and what needs to be done. it was vague.

The provider made me feel rushed so I couldn't think of all my concerns and questions.

Dr. Russell has all but cleared up an issueI have been fighting for many years. His care, compassion, and knowledge are exemplary. Love this guy.
Patient | April 24, 2017

Dr. Russell was recommended to me by my provider in San Diego, who was an incredible, well known provider. His recommendation was spot-on and in fact Dr. Russell is really in a category of his own. Exceptional bed-side manner, clear and consistent expertise in his field, extremely trustworthy and reliable. Very hard to find in today's medical environment.
