DR. Russell is always great. It's the system for urgent care UCSF has in place that is problematic and unresponsive to patients needs.

Dr was absolutely the best. After the nurse was confused about the difference between the ADRENAL GLAND and Adenoids I was very concerned about even staying for the appointment at all. The doc put my mind to ease and was awesome.

Dr. Matthew Russell is an exceptional physician. He has a real gift for expressing compassion and caring when relating to patients. Before ordering diagnostic testing for me he explained what each potential diagnosis might mean and proposed a few different treatment scenarios based on those results. He correctly predicted my diagnosis. Experts in their field like Dr. Russell is why I travel over 70 miles from home to UCSF! I know I will receive world class leading care from the best hospital/medical center on the planet! UCSF is truly the best and getting better! Please reward and acknowledge Dr. Russell for the brilliant medicine he is practicing! I personally believe his medical knowledge and abilities are unparalleled in his field!

Dr Russell is empathetic to the overall needs of caregiver's challenges & facilitates to overcome the shortcomings of the overall healthcare system. He doesn't just aim to get things "off his plate". He shares in seeking a full solution.
