Dr. Russman was very thorough and patient. It took him a little while to review all of my prior test results (I overnighted them to his office, but it took a day longer to get there. I should have called and let his staff know that I had mailed them). He spent 2 hours with us, trying to figure out why I had a TIA. We really appreciated the time he spent with us.
