"Dr. Russo is an extraordinary physician with great bedside manners. He was highly recommended by my PCP and her staff.He is personable, a great listener, and empathetic to the concerns of his patients. We took our 3 month old premie who is having major reflux/ colic issues and he was very reassuring with his approach.We had a great experience, he even changed my sons diaper.His office staff is also great. I highly recommend him and his practice."
"One of the best personalities I’ve ever met. I walked in stressed out, and doctor Russo had the kids and I giggling in seconds. Really kind and astute. Highly recommend!"
"Took my 3 year old to Dr. Russo to evaluate why she was so traumatized by pooping. (This had turned into a monstrous issue and withholding up to 2 weeks at a time). We had a great visit, he listened and really took the time to talk to myself and my child. My toddler was totally at ease and we were given lots of info and a solid game plan for home. Now I can just refer back to “remember what the doctor said” when reasoning with my kid because she loved him so much. Highly recommend! My toddler is on the road to recovery now."
"Dr Russo is wonderful! He is soft spoken and caring. Dr Russo didn’t want to leave my child with unanswered questions as to why their stomach hurt after eating, so we scheduled an endoscopy! I appreciated this approach so we can rule out any major issues, or guessing what it could be and medicating with out clear reason! My child gets nervous in any medical situation, but Dr Russo and everyone involved gave my child reassurance and took very good care of them! Definitely recommend!"
"Amazing with kids. Very patient and caring and thorough. Highly recommend."
"Dr. Russo has great bedside manner, sound judgement and is very thorough. My wife and I recently had to take our 3 month old to him for a second opinion and we were both very impressed with Dr. Russo. We also have nothing but great things to say about his office staff, as they helped entertain our toddler during the visit so we could focus on our baby. 10/10 recommend Dr. Russo and this practice!"
"Dr. Russo was really gentle and thoughtful with my sensitive daughter. I was amazed at the way he connected with her. With the issue we’ve been dealing with, I couldn’t have imagined laughing but he helped lighten up the uncomfortable subject. And the advice he gave my daughter clicked with her. We are seeing a surprisingly quick mental improvement for her. Thank you Dr. Russo, for your kindness and genuine desire to connect with my daughter. The receptionist at the front desk was warm and friendly and helpful. She held my baby while I filled out paperwork. Overall wonderful experience."

"Excellent doctor very professional and excellent person"
"Dr. Russo has been our angel. After months of begging other professionals to look into my son’s issues Dr. Russo took me seriously and found a life threatening condition in our very first appointment. He has given us incredible referrals to other providers and has been such a helpful resource during our rollercoaster ride. He is compassionate, kind, humble, and caring. His bed side manner is excellent with not only my baby, but my husband and I. He and his medical assistant Rachel are responsive and thorough. I never feel rushed in our visits and he always seems genuinely excited to see my little guy. I am not one to review doctors because quite frankly, my experience hasn’t been the greatest with my son’s complex medical issues, but Dr. Russo is well worth the review. I wish I could give him 500 stars and a million accolades. He quite literally helped save my son’s life. Highly, HIGHLY recommend."
"He was very nice and informative!"
"I love meeting with Dr Russo! He has the most amazing bedside manner. Dr Russo has always been conservative when treating my kids with medication or with tests. He is so thorough and treats us like we are the only patients he has. As a nurse married to a surgeon I am very particular as to who we as a family see and I would highly recommend Dr Russo."

We landed in the ER of Medical City Children's over the New Year's weekend and I'm so glad he was the one on-call for their practice! He was genuinely concerned about our daughter. He did an exam on her room and was honest about what he thought he could do to help to start the healing process. Let me tell you... he was able to do so much more and was able to completely remove the blockage from my daughter! He showed genuine interest in her progress to healing the day after and has called us at home to check in and give us results from her biopsies. I would highly recommend Dr Russo for your child if you are searching for a G.I. specialist. My daughter has a complicated medical history on top of being Intellectually disabled and her selective mutism doesn't make doctors jobs very easy.. but he very patient with her❤"

"5 isn’t enough stars to give Dr Russo! He will forever be credited as the dr that put my son on the path to wellness! To say he goes above and beyond for hi paitients is an understatement. I cant count the amount of times he’s answered my calls on weekends and on vacation. In fact my first visit with him, he told me to come in and meet him on his lunch hour. I truly credit him with saving my son’s life. He cares for each patient as if it was his own child. His office staff is amazing and very responsive! We now live 1.5 hours away and if ever need be, we will still make the drive back to see Dr Russo. He’s like family to us now!"
"I absolutely love Dr. Russo. He is compassionate, soft spoken, patient, understanding, considerate....i could go on and on. He gave me options to help avoid a ng and g tube while my son was in heart failure and even though he ended up getting a ng tube for a little while, he still gave me hope and told me i was a great mom. When your child is medically complex, you are stressed out. It is the best feeling when a specialist tells you are you doing the best you can. He really is an amazing doctor."
"I only saw one other review from a dad so I feel obligated to fill this out. Dr. Russo is a lifetime doctor.

He is always on top of the leading medical research, and he helps parents make difficult decisions by putting himself in their shoes. He is kind, thorough, patient and responsive. He has gone above and beyond to help with insurance denials. My son actually looks forward to each visit and each scope, and that is because Dr. Russo goes out of his way to make his patients feel comfortable and cared about. I truly believe there is no better option for a pediatric gastroenterologist in Dallas."
"Wow! Absolutely amazing doctor! It is immediately clear from the moment that he walks into the room that he was meant to work with kids! To say that he has a wonderful bedside manner would be an understatement. Dr. Russo is thorough, kind and really gives you the feeling that he really cares about your kid!

"We have been seeing Dr. Russo from last 4 months for my son's GI issues. Dr. Russo put's himself's in parents shoe to better understand parents concerns and to answer all questions very patiently. He is very kind, detail oriented, prompt and very professional. My son who was going through some serious GI issues with very unique case. Dr. Russo patiently explained the details around my son's GI issues and various treatment options. He acted so quickly to get procedures done for my son as he understands the urgency and importance of my son's case. He understands parents concerns and advised us to take second opinion from other doctors, in fact he provided few good doctors contacts to get second opinion. Since it was very unique case, after our appointment with Dr.Russo, Dr.Russo analyzed our case again (he spent quite bit of time to analyze) and contacted us on phone to provide further details, treatment options and directed us for additional lab work. Whenever he gets any lab results, he always calls and discuss results with us. I have never seen a doctor who contacts parents/guardians of patients regularly to discuss about patients case and answer any questions. Dr.Russo is one phone call away as he is so prompt in returning calls to his patients. He is a doctor who is always on your side. Office staff is very nice and very easy to work with. He is very professional, fair, kind, ethical and understands parents concerns - Dr.Russo is the best Pediatric GI doctor that I ever seen in DFW area. Thank you and appreciated Dr.Russo for being very professional, ethical, kind and supporting us during our difficult times."
"We are happy to travel to Dallas Tx. every few months to take our daughter for treatment with him. He is such a humble and caring doctor, his bedside manner is much better than anyone would expect.

He will take care of your children like he will his own. I highly recommend him."

"An excellent physician with great bedside manners. My child loves Dr. Russo. He is always a click away, easy to get in touch with, respond to our concerns fast. This day and age, it is unlikely that you get the attention Dr. Russo gives to his patient's and their families. Dr. Russo's nurse is also just as compassionate as he is about his patient's. Love the team. We are blessed to have found Dr. Russo."
