Great Doctor

Dr. Larussa was very understanding and he listened to ALL of my many concerns. I only waited about 10 minutes before being called to the back and he entered the room about 5 minutes after that. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is experiencing allergy related issues, as myself.

Best asthma specialist around

I feel Dr. LaRussa is an outstanding doctor and that he literally saved my life 3 years ago while I was hospitalized. He is the most caring, compassionate doctor I have ever had; hands down. I would highly recommend him to anyone. And he really listens to his patients with earnestness.
