Dr. Gerald Russell and his staff, specifically his nurse, Brenda, and the office manager, David Bandy, cannot be trusted. They totally botched on an attempt by Walgreens (and me) to get a prescription refilled. Three days went by after Walgreens called and e-faxed the request. There was no refill or call from Russell's nurse so I went in person to the office four days after the initial request. I was greeted with lies and hostility. They also have not sent all of my records, which I requested a few weeks ago. I was a patient of Russell's for 20 years, but no more. And just now, the receptionist said she can't help me with the records and then hung up on me. There are many better choices for medical care in Farragut.
