    I found Dr. Russo to be highly professional. I had an endoscopy without a sedative (because I was newly pregnant). Although it was uncomfortable, Dr Russo and his team made the whole process seamless and painless. They did a great job. His positive attitude makes things easier to accept and understand. I would definitely recommend him.

    Exceptional care. From the first consultation, Dr Russo was kind, attentive and methodical. He carefully listened to my symptoms, explained all the options (with helpful graphics) and arranged the necessary diagnostic tests (at world class facilities) very fast. Once the problem was identified, his team went the extra mile to deliver all necessary medication. You’ll always feel like you’re in good hands. Thank you very much!

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    In the first consultation, Dr Russo was very kind and took his time to explain potential causes for my symptoms. He recommended a few scans and an endoscopy to determine the root cause of the symptoms. Once at the hospital/ clinic, he was very reassuring and confident. The results were clearly communicated and the right medicine was prescribed for a specific duration. He also explained why it's only taken during this duration and how I should come off the meds. He's brilliant, he takes his time to answer any questions no matter how silly it is. I recommend Dr Russo any time!

    Seeing Dr Russo was a fantastic experience, he explained in great detail why I may be dealing with the symptoms I had and laid out a plan of action. Dr Russo's explanations and bedside manner always made me feel at ease. As someone who has been struggling with reflux issues for awhile now, I left my consultation with Dr Russo feeling relieved and in great hands. I couldn't recommend Dr Russo more.

    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    Dr Russo was very professional. Although multiple members from his team had already seen me and prepared me from my procedure, he visited me prior to my endoscopy to explain everything. He really spent time to answer all of my questions and to make me feel comfortable and safe. He is really caring about his patients and he made me feel like having a 5 star private care within the public sector. During the procedure he was explaining his findings in real time which was reassuring. The procedure I underwent under his care was beyond painless, was amazingly comfortable. After the procedure he assured that I was safe for discharge and that I had understood well all of his advices and that I knew what to expect. My overall experience is that dr Russo is an exceptional doctor and I would definitely recommend him for his professionalism, his endoscopic expertise and his unique communication skills. I would certainly revisit dr Russo and seek for his consultation if I need a gastroenterology review in the future.

    "I have worked very closely with Evangelos for many years. He has helped a large number of my patients suffering with bowel complaints. Patients always feed back on his diagnostic acumen, kindness and bedside manner. Frequently, there is overlap between hormonal and gastrointestinal disorders and working with Evangelos towards addressing issues accurately and holistically helps offer our patients good quality care. I recommend him to patients wholeheartedly. "
