Doctor and staff are awesome, friendly and welcoming; doctors exam was very thorough, advice very professional and helpful, the only issue I have is waiting time- when you are required to schedule an appointment then you shouldn't wait over 30 minutes- besides that everything was perfect!!!

Love this guy. He listens. He didn't dismiss my concerns. He gave me a referral to an endocrinologist which is more than I could get out of my PCP for the past six months. 100% would recommend him to anyone.

Dr Bussell is amazing. My daughter is afraid of doctors but she absolutely adores him. She lights up as soon as he walks in the room. He is wonderful with kids. He spends time explain to her on her level soshe understands what is going to happen and then explains things to me as her parent on obviously an adult level. I couldn't be more pleased having chose him to remove my daughter's tonsils, adenoids and place ear tubes. By far an amazing doctor!!

I paid out of pocket and he was very sympathetic to that and said we can do a follow up over the phone if necessary. My issue is very minor, which is why that would be possible. First specialist I've evergone to where there was no wait--and I was early!

I really liked Dr. Bussell! He was very good with my son and fully explained the procedure he was going to do and what to expect. He wrote him a perception to hopefully clear up his issue. Wants to see himback in two months. I feel somewhat relieved he was able to diagnose my son on the first visit. Hopefully over time his issue goes away. I would recommend Dr. Bussell.

Dr. Bussell was the first doctor my 1 year old daughter didn't cry with. Doctors/nurses barely need to touch her and she completely loses it. I apologized to him as he walked in the room expecting the meltdown, and it nevercame. He was so kind and child friendly, I highly recommend him. Not only did he make her feel comfortable, but also us, her parents, while making some tough decisions.

I don't usually do reviews but I HAD TO for Dr. Brussell. I went to see him for a second opinion after a terrible experience with a different ENT. He was SO NICE and friendly. He checked my ear issue, explainedeverything so clearly including using medical pictures and answered every single one of my questions. He told me what I can expect for prognosis and treatment. I wish I had seen him first. He definitely calmed my anxiety. If you are looking for a good ENT, Dr. Brussell should be on your list.

I went to the Dr Bussell for an annoying sinus problem. He quickly diagnosed the situation and made the proper prescriptions. He also explained exactly what to expect from the medication and provided instructions on what to do if his courseof action did not pan out. After the second day I was already feeling much improved.

I really enjoyed seeing this ENT! It was my first visit so I was nervous but it's a warming office. My appointment was at 3:15 and I was called back around 3:45 so I did have a wait but it wasworth it. He was thorough and listened well. Took this time with me and helped explain a lot about my sinuses. He sent me home feeling much better about my situation and am very happy I chose this doctor.
