Specialties

Dr. William E Russell has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Endocrinology

    Endocrinologists treat disorders related to our glands and the hormones they produce. Because hormones play a key role in the growth and development of children, these conditions often pose different threats to children than they do adults. That’s where a pediatric endocrinologist comes in.
    They can diagnose and treat hormonal disorders such as abnormal thyroid function, growth complications and early or delayed puberty. Ambiguous genitals as well as ovarian and testicular dysfunction are also part of their expertise. Childhood obesity, diabetes and problems with low blood sugar also tie back to hormone function and may require consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Best Doctor I have ever had

Dr. Russell took care of my son, Jake when he was first diagnosed with diabetes. My husband was diabetic so we knew about it, we were lucky that way. It is different when it is your child though. Dr. Russell was always kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and just a great doctor and human being. The only thing he could change for me is if he took care of older diabetics, and not just little ones. I'm diabetic now, and my son married a type 1 diabetic, so we could start a good base if ever he changed to adults!

I didn't particularly care for this doctor. He was very nice and seemed very thorough, but it's their way or the highway. They are not willing consider any other opinions or options. I didn't appreciate being talked down to. I felt a lot of that went on it this office.
