I had the gastric sleeve not because of weight issues but I had severe debilitating migraines for over a year. After surgery I feel healthier and no MIGRAINES! I feel like I’m living a life now. Dr Russo and his staff are amazing! They are so attentive and helpful!

Dr. Russo and his team are amazing! He has given me the gift of a healthy and active life! I am now free from the burdens of obesity (since childhood) with 110 pound weight-loss. I felt informed, heard and understood, educated and well-prepared for this journey every step of the way because Dr. Russo and his team are connected with their patients and truly care. If I could tell anyone suffering like I did for all of my adult life with weight, I would say reach out to Dr. Russo today for a consultation. You will be so happy you did! Life is so worth living!

Dr. Russo is so nice and patient when explaining everything to you. I had my 1 year post-op appt. today, I feel great and am so happy with the results. Down 99lbs in 1 year! My only regret is not having the surgery sooner!

Dr. Russo is amazing. He completely changed my life in an amazing way. I can't thank him and his office enough for everything they have done for me. It is as if I have been reborn into a new, healthier person. Dr. Russo is incredibly professional and highly skilled. I highly recommend him.

Dr Russo is highly recommended. He’s caring and explains everything well. I had little to NO pain after surgery and give credit to Dr Russo . Don’t hesitate to change your life and Dr Russo is the best!

Just had my first consult with Dr. Russo today. I cannot tell you how
fantastic it was to have real conversation about my concerns, (I had to switch from Dr. Iqbal due to horrible follow up care and A LOT of misinformation).
Dr. Russo is fantastic! He really put me at ease, for God's sake the man spent over an hour with me! Over an hour !!
He is so knowledgeable, addressed every single question I had (and I brought a two page list of single spaced questions because I’m just that anal and starved for information). I could go on and on. But I know today, I made the best decision of this journey so far by getting on board with Dr. Russo and his group of support resources.
I also met with the group's Registered Dietician, Katrina,who was also very generous with her time and highly informed. She got me on the right foot with my nutritional needs.
ALL of the front office girls were so courteous, patient and helpful as was the Office Manager, Ellen, who put a great deal of effort into getting me on board and changed over from my previous doctor.
Anyone considering surgery should check out this group. You will be in FANTASTIC hands!
Today I am very grateful. I cried all the way home! Happy tears!
I am most definitely in the right place!!!
Thank you to ALL the staff ! ????????

His staff were helpful. He was very patient with all my questions, even the silly ones. He was very clear about procedures & after-care.
