Listened carefully and had very good advice.
My appointment experience was great I felt that I was listened to and that all my concerns were addressed.
He was very attentive and seemed to really care. Loved having him as a PA-C.
Very pleasant first visit. Russell took his time with my medical condition and I never felt rushed or that his attention was divided.
I felt I had a lot of one on one time to discuss my health care I’ve never experienced that before. He was very thorough and gave many different treatment options and asked my opinions. I felt very comfortable and at ease.
