Dr. Russell is a knowledgeable doctor, but displayed some "cockiness." I think that is good, gave me confidence in him - wasn't an overwhelming amount.

Patient | January 28, 2018

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.
