Dr. Russell is an incredible doctor! She was the FIRST doctor in 10 years to really spend time listening to us. Then she came up with a possible diagnosis! We were so hopeful that she had a possible answer to my child's debilitating state. After testing, we learned that she was right!! My daughter has her life back again and is thriving thanks to Dr. Russell. She is a miracle worker. She really cares about her patients and really wants to find solutions to their health problems. We are forever grateful!!

Dr Russell went above and beyond by contacting a neurologist that we can't see until 2/14 to get some possible relief for my daughter.
