My daughter has seen several GI physicians throughout the years and Dr Russell is her favorite-just the way she explains things and doesn't make things feel rushed. Always asks if we have any questions and takes the time to answer them. Listen to my daughter's issues and works with her to come up with treatment ideas. Makes my daughter feel very comfortable in regards to a condition that is not comfortable dealing with and talking about.

Dr. Russell always takes time to connect with my child about things totally unrelated to her GI issues. She always asks my child (who is 9) to help us decide how to make treatment easier and explains why it is needed. I can't say enough good things about her!
