We have been going to Dr Russo for years and he has been excellent. One of the best doctors around. However he seems very rushed nowadays. He seems like he wants to hurry and get the visit over with, gives abrupt answers to questions, and the cardiovascular exam isn't as complete as its been in the past. Maybe its patient overload.Yet he still provides the best care, gives excellent advice on referrals, and the office staff is professional, efficient and courteous.
