Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit.

Dr. Russman himself is excellent. He's an excellent listener, compassionate, and extremely knowledgable. Getting to speak with him or to talk to his office is challenging. The patient portal messaging system is great and his office is great at communicating through there.
