How was your experience with the doctor?I have been seeing Dr. Russell for over ten years. She was with me through a cone procedure which eradicated cervical cancer and has been my OB for my first and now second pregnancies. She is everything that you hope for in a doctor in more - caring, thoughtful, attentive, timely, informative - I could go on and on. When time is tight and decisions need to be made she stays cool, presents you with the information you need, and holds your hand through those difficult moments. When you are awaiting lab results and tests she gets back to you as soon as she can and takes the time over the phone to answer any/all questions you may have about the results. Her office is timely on appointments, however from time to time given emergencies, you might have to wait up to 15m for an appointment. There isn't a better OBGYN out there!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Russel is WONDERFUL. So genuine and helpful. She took the time to sit down with me before the exam to go over my medical history, any questions or concerns I had and was very friendly and made good conversation. Made me feel very comfortable the whole time and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good Gyno in the city!

How was your experience with the doctor?I decided to make a change this year and am so pleased that I found Dr. Russell. She came highly recommended by my daughter's internist. She was thorough, kind, patient and really listened to my concerns. She took immediate action and sent me for additional testing instead of just telling me not to worry. I'm very happy that I made the switch.

How was your experience with the doctor?Since my doctor retired I feel like I have been floating trying to find the right doctor that had the same ethics, and care for their patients the way he did. I finally feel I found that today with Dr. Russell. She took her time to get to know what was going on, and how to best help me. She was professional, empathetic, and had a wonderful bedside manner. I am so grateful to my friend for referring me to her. I finally feel that I am in good hands again!!

How was your experience with the doctor?Shereen Russell is a blessing in a field of obgyns who have zero empathy or knowledge. She is quite possibly the most knowledgeable and modern obgyn/doctor I have ever come into contact with in my life.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been a patient at Dr. Russell's office for the last 15 years. She is everything that one would want in her doctor/ob-gyn: kind, patient, reliable and extremely thorough. As a nervous first time mother, she saw me through my high risk pregnancy with calm diligence, always returning my phone calls even at midnight! The office is clean and well equipped with the latest technology. Dr. Russell's reference network of doctors is extensive and she is well connected in the medical community. I have and will highly recommend her to anyone.

How was your experience with the doctor?After an important information I received from her that needs a re-check, she told me she didn’t have time to re-check / do the rest of the exams necessary to know for sure what I have. I would never recommend anyone to see her!!!

How was your experience with the doctor?Professional, knowledgable, and sweet. Note that the practice is "out of network" no matter what insurance you have, which means you always have to pay up front for your visits, then get reimbursed. (But the office will submit your paperwork directly to your insurance provider for the reimbursement.)

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Russell is extremely caring, professional, and competent. Her office administrative staff, on the other hand, are rude, hostile, and impatient. It's unfortunate that such a wonderful doctor has to "make up for" the behavior of her front desk personel (which would deter patients from returning!). I guess good help is hard to find, but the fact remains that patient experience starts when you answer the phone, or step foot in the door.

How was your experience with the doctor?Once I was seen, she was very thorough and efficient. She was personable and made you feel at ease very quickly. All blood work was done in the office so it made for simple one stop shopping. I was relieved to hear at the end off the appointment (she is out of network) that the office submits medical insurance to your health insurance for you which is another little detail that made my experience the most enjoyable.
