Testimonials from patients of Dr. Russell

from William C in AL March 14, 2020 for Chris B. Russell, MD

Those words were spoken about Dr Russell by my husband's long time cardiologist at a recent heart exam. Dr Russell does indeed treat his patients with the utmost care, respect and "fine doctoring".

My husband Bill has been a patient of Dr. Chris Russell's since Dr Russell opened his practice in Huntsville, AL. Now, we would follow him anywhere.

from Gayle in AL March 12, 2020 for Chris B. Russell, MD

When my husband was in hospital Dr Russell came in one Saturday. He said he thought they were going to start physical therapy on him that day. I told him my husband's walker was in parking garage. He said, "give me your keys, tell me what kind of car and where it is and I will go get it for you". How many doctors would do that. He also called me at home to ask where I wanted my… See more

Dr. Christopher Russell and his staff (Anita, Sheila and Elizabeth) are so attentive and caring. As a senior citizen I have various issues - some real and some phantom ones!

I know that I am in good hands and that gives me great peace of mind.… See more

from Glenda in AL March 10, 2020 for Chris B. Russell, MD

I have many stories, but will give three. Dr. Russell diagnosed my daughter in law’s problem over the phone, had her go to the ER immediately, he was there along with the surgeon when we arrived. She was rushed to surgery for an appendectomy, her appendixes were about to rupture. Because of his wonderful knowledge, excellent diagnosis, prompt response and care for his patients she had no… See more

from Denise in AL March 10, 2020 for Chris B. Russell, MD

I am so glad that we found our way to you and that you made space in your practice for us. At 68 and having been your patient for less than a year, I can say without question that you know me better and have a more thorough understanding of my healthcare needs than any of the doctors I have had as primary care physicians in the past. My last two primary care physicians took care of me for 12… See more

from Ethel in AL March 10, 2018 for Chris B. Russell, MD

Dr. Chris Russell has been my doctor for more than 20 years and he is the best. He is kind, considerate and very patient-oriented. He listens to you and actually hears what you have to say. He makes every effort to understand your situation and to find a way to resolve whatever the problem is. He does not prescribe medication unless it is necessary and is very concerned as to its effect on the… See more

To know one life has breathed easier, this is to have succeeded. Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Dr. Russell has helped me to be able to breathe easier. Having a chronic illness is difficult on so many levels, and the compassion and faithfulness he continues to display is priceless. He has so much patience, intergrity, wisdom and knowledge. I truly am not sure if I would even be alive right now… See more
