Steven M. Russo, DO
As a general gastroenterologist, I treat conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, such as heartburn/acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, colon polyps, difficulty swallowing, liver disease, pancreatitis, and other conditions. I strongly believe in preventative care and polyp screening for my patients and perform routine upper and lower endoscopy. I have a special interest in inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease. It is important to me to listen to and educate my patients on their conditions and how to work together to best improve their quality of life. When not working, my time is spent with my wife and two dogs. My interests include gardening, hiking, and supporting the UNC Tar Heels.
Ratings and Reviews
The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Learn more about our survey process. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. Patients who see some types of providers receive a different version of the patient satisfaction survey. Those results are not available on DukeHealth.org.
