I had the displeasure of speaking to a "Laurie". She was the most sarcastic and condescending human being. She really needs to attend a customer service class.

Dr. Russo is the best of the best. His academic mind is amazing. He discusses care with you, doesn't just tell you what to do, he actually wants your input! I have been seeing him for roughly 5 years and he is always on the ball and compassionate. I would recommend him to anyone needing a nephrologist.
