About Dr. Russell

Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is based on collaboration between the patient and provider. You are a unique individual with your own set of values and history through which you see your own health. Understanding this allows me to better treat your health concerns, and in turn leads to better satisfaction.

Why I entered medicine

My father, Richard Russell, DO, has been a family care physician in Pine Grove, Pa., for 43 years. I grew up watching the positive impact he had on his patients and on the community. Medicine is an ever-changing field with different challenges and new rewards encountered every day, making it an exciting profession. I am fortunate enough to practice medicine and share an office with my dad.

Personal interests

I enjoy golfing, traveling and following Penn State and Philadelphia sports teams.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
