" I am extremely happy with Dr Russo and his staff. I saw him Monday. Had two XRays. I had an MRI that same night and a follow up two days later. I am scheduled for a spinal injection next week. He ordered pain medication so that I can be comfortable until then. My back pain had been unbearable. He is professional, knowledgeable, and a very nice person "
