Clean great environment, Dr. Surasky is great !!

Dr Surasky is the best of the best !!

Love Being a patient of DR Russell Surasky. Very smart guy And passionate about his work. Shows true concern and takes an interest his patients. My time in waiting room was minimal. Kudos to the entire team. As everyone is friendly and helpful.

Great staff! Dr. Russell Surasky is the best!!!

OK I 1st this gentleman doctor Russell is very good when it comes to finding out what's best for the patient. My name is Vincent DeFino. I dont care about saying my name. No other doctors could help me like thos and I'm not ashamed bc I am clean and feel normal.So this is a real review. and I came from rehab detox however I was not feeling well and doctor Russell was able to give me the proper meds that are not controlled substances that will not harm me in the long run and he knows which meds interact with others for example clonidine is used for opiate which Royal and he had given me pro panel for the hot aches on the pounding hot and I haven't taken in a leave since then or have had that overwhelming panicky feeling from all the benzo abuse that I have done. At 1st he tried mironton which I suggest is a very good medication for people who have problems with then Zoe's because you could take that pencils for 3 months year straight and take the Ronson and you will not have a seizure however it did have this florea and forgetfulness so he changed it to 2 other options there was lyrica or baclofen and baclofen worked and I asked him why not lyrica and he says because it has very badd side effects. So I decided to read up on it and lo and behold he was right. In other words he will give you the proper meds. And when he sees you stable and he will have you come in 3 weeks depending on your needs he won't just talk about medication he will talk about to get that bond relationship with you about your hobbies how your routine is how's everything working for you 1st words out of his mouth how are you and how are you feeling today. Plus they also have an on call emergency which a lot of people don't have where you can get doctor Russell on contact and bubbles yes that's a real name her his medical assistant I have are on call to and as soon as I text her she will respond the matter what time it is even if it's 2:00 a.m. In the morning to get your needs fulfilled I give them 5 stars plus E for excellent

Great front office. Amazing, caring, attentive and thorough Doctor.

Not a long wait to see Doctor Russel. Super courteous staff always. A good outcome after the visit.

The clerical staff at the desk are really friendly and always make sure all my concerns or issues are taken care of. They also look they have fun at work and really enjoy their job; this creates a positive atmosphere which makes me comfortable from the second I walk in. Dr. Russell Surasky always takes his time with me when I visit the office, and I never feel as if I’m being rushed. He also throughly answers all my questions and fully takes care of any concerns I might have. He is also very knowledgeable in his field and I would recommend him to anyone needing a Neurologist.

Everything was great. Dr. Surasky made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He was very professional, having a good understanding of my situation at the same time very personable and friendly. The visit was a pleasure and I would recommend him to anyone who is struggling. I will be back. Thank you.

Dr.Surasky is one of the best doctors I've ever encountered.He is doctor that cares for his patients and has there been interested at heart.

Great doc, definitely knows what he’s doing!

Dr. Russel Surasky is an amazing doctor! 10/10 would recommend. I have been seen by many addiction specialists as well as neurologists as my condition requires both kinds of doctors and never have I encountered such a thorough, kind, and compassionate doctor in my 10 year journey. He takes the time to ask how you are doing, to be truely invested in your progress, to thoroughly explain any effects and potential side effects of medications he prescribes. He always makes you feel included in the decisions made about your own health and well being, instead of just telling you what you "should" do. He even gives out his private cell # to his addiction patients to make himself available to them 24/7 in case of medication or other emergencies. That is dedication on a whole other level.

Great staff! Terrific doctor!

Great doctor

Great listener to truly get to the heart of the issue!

I have been seeing Dr. Surasky for over two years now, and I can’t believe the progress I’ve made with him since originally walking into his office. Crystal and the staff is amazing and easy to work with, and Dr. Surasky is great. He takes his time with me to see how everything in my life is doing, I feel like he’s my family doctor we really have a great relationship.

Dr. Surasky diagnosed my problems on my first visit. These problems were missed by 3 other Doctors over a 4 year period. He prescribed the proper medications and I now have a much better quality of life. He is understanding and he listens to my concerns before giving me feedback. I would recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Surasky very much cares for your well being. He’s intelligent, easy going and takes the time needed to listen to what you have to say. Great Doctor.

Dr. Russell was very informative and listened to all my concerns. He advised me on certain medications but I know he wanted to truly help me. I would recommend him to other people.

I have seen several Doctors over the years and I felt as if they didn’t hear a word I said and they didn’t care. I credit Dr. Surasky with not only changing my life but saving it. His knowledge is vast and he truly cares. And that’s because he listens. Words cannot express how highly I’d recommend him.

Amazing doctor and the ladies that work there are so nice

Dr. Surasky and his staff are a true diamond in the rough. It is always a pleasurable experience which is quite rare in the world of medicine. Everyone is thoughtful, caring, and very knowledgeable.

From the moment I first walked in his office the Doctor made me feel comfortable and gave me a glimmer of hope. I was in some bad shape on my first visit. I also suffer from Bi-Polar and he prescribed Welbutrin and it's the best and most effective medication I've ever used to treat my illness. He truly cares about his patients and that is very reassuring!
