Ratings for Dr. Noel Russell
I have been a patient of Noel's 3 times for exotoxins operations ( surfers ear ) Noel , Jane and the other staff are faultless in my eyes. 10/10 for punctuality, knowledge, skill, bedside manner etc etc. wouldn't trust anyone else for this major ear operation.
I had a surfers ear operation due with Noel and when I was due for the operation was surprised to find that a registrar would be performing the operation with Noel overseeing precedings. I had two weeks of severe pain and numbness of ear and temporal region. Two weeks post operation I was due to have packing of ear canal removed and was unable to get Noel to do this as he made himself unavailable but was taking patients at the hospital on that day when I attended to see another ENT. The care factor was not there. Also his staff are unable to get him to return phone calls.
Excellent experience with Dr Noel Russell and his staff
Excellent experience with Dr Noel Russell. He is incredibly knowledgable, courteous, done to earth and an amazing surgeon. Could not recommend him more highly. No need to see any other ENT surgeon when Dr Noel Russell is around.
Dr Noel Russell and his staff are amazing. I had an long-term injury and needed a septoplasty and a turbinectomy. I was so impressed by everything from the first consultation with Dr Noel Russell to the surgery and recovery and the aftercare. Dr Noel has definitely earned his reputation as a friendly, understanding and amazing surgeon. I would recommend Dr Noel Russell to anyone.
Saw Dr Noel Russell after suffering from a congested nose for two years. Managed first with nasonex then it was decided to operate. The operation went smoothly and my recovery was far quicker than I expected (after to talking to a friend who saw a different surgeon). I feel better than ever. Dr Noel Russell is I credibly understanding, caring and knowledgable.
I went to Noel Russell on the 20th June 2011. I had serious sinus pain and congestion and he had removed polyps from my left sinus passage before. I had been leaking clear liquid from my left sinus and doctors had said it was an allergy. By the time I saw Noel the liquid had began to come out my left ear as well. Whilst in his surgery he was very blank and seem disintersted. He looked in my ear and nose and said that yes I did have clear fluid build coming out but no sign of infection or fluid build up. He gave me a nasal spray nasnex and sent me on my way. A few weeks later (8th July)I was in the Geelong Hospital fighting for my life with bacterial meningitis. Turns out my left sinus had burst and I was leaking cerebal fluid. He had no interest what so ever in swabbing or investigating the clear fluid. I still have side effects from being in a coma for 5 days and I can honestly say I will never see Noel again. Please be very careful when chosing an ENT.
Dr. Russell and his staff are courteous, friendly and polite. Both my son and daughter have been operated on by Dr. Russell for grommets and a tonsillectomy and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone and everyone. He explained the surgery to both me and my children and was very patient with my many questions. The recovery time for both operations was quicker than what I had expected (after speaking to friends who had seen other ENT surgeons). Dr. Russell came to see both my children in hospital after the operation and they were both 100% by the time of the follow-up appointment. Dr. Russell and his staff are the best in the biz!
