    Dr Russo's response to my request for a video consultation could not have been better. Not only that but he went to considerable trouble to put me into good hands in my local area - particularly appreciated in the current situation. His call was exactly on time, he did not rush me in any way and answered my questions fully in a way I could understand. He did everything possible to put my mind at rest and help. I'm most grateful.

    I decided to seek help from Dr Russo for a very long standing problem of chronic diarrhoea which I had been previously told was an effect of a chronic illness since my teens and which seemed to be getting worse as I got older. It has always had a significant detrimental effect on my life but I have lived with it until recently when I decided to have one more try to find out if there was any chance of improvement with new medical advances. I had seen specialists in my local area over the years but nothing was ever conclusive. Dr Russo immediately put me at ease and gave me confidence that he could help me. He suggested diagnostic tests which I hadn't previously been offered and his positive attitude gave me hope that my life could be improved. I was still very shocked when he told me he had a definite diagniosis and with permanent medication my life could be normal. After just a few days on medication I see a significant improvement already. I am certain that choosing to consult Dr Russo was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

    Dr Russo was very attentive and approachable since the day I contacted him. He advised me on the things I needed to do as to deal with a problem I had. He performed a colonoscopy on me; I did that before and it was very painful. However, The colonoscopy he performed on me was absolutely pain-free. Everything on that day was extremely well organised. He is an excellent doctor and scientist who’s very approachable and attentive to his patients. Very highly recommended to all patients looking for a gastroenterologist whose services and expertise are of the highest level.

    I've been dealing with chronic diarrhea for several months which needless to say, has impeded my life so I finally made the decision to see a private Gastroenterologist. I did a lot of research beforehand and chose Dr Evangelos Russo based on his education, experience and of course trusted patient reviews. My GI issues were getting worse each day so I attempted to get a last minute appointment. Fortunately for me Dr Evangelos Russo was very accommodating and saw me the same day and even stayed late for an evening appointment. I'm not sure how many doctors would do that. I know that in the states (where I'm from) that's a rarity. Dr Evanelos Russo was friendly, down to earth, easy to discuss an embarrassing matter with, knowledgeable, patient and kind. His communication about all of the possible ailments and tests was detailed, easy to understand and not overwhelming. He explained everything thoroughly, used photos which made things easier to comprehend, and was even able to schedule me in for a colonoscopy quickly. My bum didn't react well to the Moviprep (the laxative required to clean out the colon before the procedure) with my extremely sensitive, fragile skin and painful external piles thus I was concerned that my colonoscopy would be torture but Dr Evanelos Russo got back to me right away with helpful advice and the colonoscopy was as painless and gentle as possible. I thoroughly appreciated that he used a local anesthetic and was gentle during the procedure. I seriously did not feel any pain or discomfort during the colonoscopy nor was I in pain afterwards. Only a skilled and experienced gastroenterologist would be able to pull that off. Both Dr Evangelos Russo and his secretary, Aleksandra, have been extremely quick to reply to my email messages, helpful, kind, communicative and efficient. Those are the qualities a patient appreciates. They also both have been keeping me up to date with my test results as they come in. I can't say enough positive things about both of them. As a picky American expat I can honestly say that selecting Dr Evangelos Russo as my gastroenterologist was the right decision. When you have GI issues it's stressful but I assure you that this is one decision you won't have to fret about.

    Thank you for your comments. Apologies for the longer than average wait that day. My colleague was doing gastroscopies in the room next door, which are much faster than colonoscopies, and that is why the turnover of her room appeared quicker. I am very pleased to hear that the rest of your experience was a positive one!
