Specialties

Dr. Linda A Russell has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Four Stars

Dr. Russell is knowledgeable with common sense approach. Only draw back is have to make appointments months in advance. Her FORMER assistants were incredibly kind and helpful. Unfortunately no longer the case with her current office staff (since early 2016), who don't listen (and get information wrong), have call back multiple times because messages and requests for prescriptions are ignored/"lost" -- and then try to blame the patent !!.

DR Russell is very pleasant and knowledgeable but always in a rush, has one foot out the door during your visit which is a slotted 15 minute interval. Will get back to you re: results etc but only if you pursue her.
