Ratings for Dr. Donato S. Russo
I was a patient for 19years. I have had sooo many experiences that I did not know I was having experiences. This Spring 2017, I decided it was over between us! I personally feel as he is aging, he is less attentive, short, he has no regard if he is causing you severe pain, he's careless, he makes no apology for his errors and basically I personally feel he is going through the motions of showing up to work. At one time, I would recommend him to all my family and friends. At one time I trusted him whole hardheartedly. UNFORTUNATELY, TODAY, I WOULD NEVER EVER STEP MY FOOT IN HIS OFFICE EVER AGAIN!!!
He was the on call OB at St.Barnabas when I delivered my baby. He was rude, abrupt, and was in a rush. He has no bedside manners, took a personal phone call from his daughter and talked about me while I was in labor. I'm so sorry my OB was not there instead I had the misfortune of having to deal with this horrible unprofessional so called doctor.
I found that I was pregnant and just wanted be certain that I was. I made my appt they verified I was. they did and ultrasound and also a papsmear, when I was only 4 weeks pregnant. The same day I got my passmear done I started bleading. It was my 1st pregnancy. I went to the ER, only to find out that I was having misscarriage( this all happen on a saturday) ER DR. Told me to follow up with my OBGY.I wen to tfhe office on monday, and he told, that I had alredy had misscariage when it was not true, I fainted I his office and was bleeding very heavy, he wasn't compasionate instead he tried to rushed me out his office and told me that I probably had the misscariage because the fetus was going to be downsyndrome. He sent me home:( I continue bleeding so I made another app they did blood work to check my levels, then he called next day and told me CONGRATULATIONS you are pregnant, so my replied was I thought you said I had a misscariaged.. I WAS GOING TO THIS S0 CALL (DR) for over ten years. he didnt even explain to me was to expect trough the process of the misscarriage he is cold hearted person. WORSE DR EVER. I was lucky and I was able o find another OBGYN who told me that I needed to get a D&C.
After 2 years of trying to get pregnant, Dr. Russo NEVER even did an ultrasound or perform any testing to see if I had Endometeriosis. (Something I never even heard of until I saw a fertiltity specialist and was told I had stage 4 endo.) Dr. Russo kept telling me I should relax and that I would get pregnant, well you know what- I LEFT that dirty office and went to an RE. 2 cycles of IVF and FINALLY a little baby. Dr. Russo wasted 2 years of my time, and never even suggested to see a fertility specialist. Dumb on my part, but a lesson learned the hard way. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone. EVER! Plus the office is one BIG welfare clinic anyway. STAY AWAY!
