Ratings for Dr. Thomas Russ
Honestly the worst doctor ever. No respect for patient. Very arrogant. Super Rude. This cardiologist has his own problems with his own medical assistance. He passed his problems to the patient for NO reason, at all. This cardiologist office undoubtedly has its own problem between staff and the cardiologist himself. He is not satisfied with his own medical assistance. Expressed his dissatisfaction right in front of patient. Very disrespectful. Stay away from his own problems. Never go back!
Was very helpful in evaluating my teenage daughter's tachycardia. He took the time to teach her during their visit so she had a clear idea about why it could be happening, and his suggestion of cause was correct. We appreciated his concern, knowledge and help!
My 90 year old grandfather has a very bad heart and some of my family members had questions on whether or not anything more could be done for him. The Doctor was very good about explaining what was going on with his heart and answering questions about the different effects of his medicines and how other medicines may interact. I disagree with the posts that he is not compassionate. I believe he is; however, he is more of a realist. Sometimes surgery is not the answer, and people live a better quality of life by doing nothing. It is just hard for some people to accept. Shasta County is very lucky to have this Doctor, and I would definitely recommend him.
Very knowledgable, yet he is arrogant and a bearer of dispair and statistics rather than hope and proper bedside manner. Needs training on how to work with patients versus just how to understand hearts. I DO NOT recommend Dr. Russ, and those in the hospital seemed to make it known that my feelings were not unjustified or alone. A disgrace to the medical community.
I would not recommend this guy to anyone....don't waste your time. He was extremely rude to my mother and I and told me to just take Mom home and let her die. We waited for an hour and a half in his office before we were called back to the room. He came in and was very abrasive from the start. Rude, rude, rude. We as patients deserve much better than this. Don't go to him!!
