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.

I have recommend Dd Russell to several people
Patient | December 1, 2016

He is (Dr. Russell) is a great doctor and a great person! The greatest.
Patient | December 1, 2016

Dr. Russell's approach is that he explains everything that the patient need to know and the best choices available. Before jumping into the high risk and more expensive approaches, he would let you think not just once or twice to make up your mind on the best choice for your self. Not many doctors are like him. Others would choose the choice that they like for you, and not choosing those for yourself.
Patient | November 22, 2016

Excellent doctor.
Patient | November 21, 2016

All OK.
Patient | October 27, 2016

Felt very comfortable discussing major surgery with this doctor and liked the fact that he consulted with other doctors and brought them in while I was there. I could tell that he had studied my charts and scans before coming in to see me. Very good bedside manor.

Apparently provider was running behind on his appointments. Seemed rushed but still competent.
