    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.

    Dr Russo, is very welcoming, friendly and makes you feel at ease. Dr Russo gave me a detailed account of my CT scan results and blood test and explained the next steps. Dr Russo listened to my concerns regarding an MRI as I am claustrophobic and he kindly provided an alternative. I would definitely recommend Dr Russo to friends & family.
