Always good in responding to my concern and questions. Dr. Russo is so easy to reach out to and he personally respond to your question and concern. I am so grateful that we found him for our son. God bless him for all he does for his patients. I must recommend him 👍"
"Dr Russo was literally an answer to prayer! My daughter's health had been declining for for the last 6 months. 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❤"
"We would definitely want to thank Mr.Russo who was able to fix an issue which was bothering our 4 year old for the past 9 months. Our physician referred us to Russo and he within a week fixed the issue. Its been 2 weeks now and our kid is doing fine. Dont have words to thank Ms.Russo and team. Thanks a lot for your help."
"I have so must gratitude for Dr. Russo. He is professional, caring, knowledgeable and experienced. My daughter's health has dramatically improved since seeing him over the past year. Thank you Dr. Russo!! From the bottom of my heart."
"One of the best doctors I have ever known. He has treated 2 of my 3 children and truly treated them as if they were his own. Wouldn't hesitate recommending him to anyone. Class act."
"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. We leave his office confident, which seems like a far fetched idea as first time parents with a sick baby girl. His office staff is also great. They respond in a timely manner with a professional attitude. Oh, and my daughter likes him."
"Outstanding professionalism and wonderful bedside manner! Many times I feel rushed when seeing the doctor, but Dr. Russo and his staff took their time to adequately address all our concerns. Can’t recommend enough!"
"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!"
"An amazing doctor and advisor. He saved our son's life! We love Dr. Russo."
"Dr. Russo has exceeded our expectations for health care. He has provided the very best service and compassion for my daughter. We have been down multiple paths with GI issues, and Dr. Russo has provided exceptional care! We are so happy we found 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."
"Would Highly recommend to anybody! Staff is great and Dr. Russo goes above and Beyond!"
"Staff is courteous and helpful. They were kind to all my kids. Dr. Russo was extremely professional and compassionate."
"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 likes to give assurance to both parents and makes sure children understand in easy understanding terms what he is going to do and makes them feel secure. He will take care of your children like he will his own. I highly recommend him."
"Dr. Russo is beyond amazing. He has been treating my son for over 6 years, and I wouldn't take him to anybody else. It is clear from the first moment how much he cares about his patients. 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! My son said during our first visit "I really like you as my doctor!" He's so fun which makes needing a Gastroenterologist not such a bummer! Highly recommend!"
