Not all questions related to the type of care visits I had. I was completely satisfied with both my visits with Dr. Rousseau and Dr. X.

June 29, 2020 1:27 PM

Dr. Rousseau is very knowledgeable and thorough. He is very professional and courteous along with his nurse Gayle. They make you feel very comfortable before, during and after the exam and procedure. I now live in Florida but fly back to Illinois every 6 months for my cycstoscopy just to see Dr. Rousseau because I want to retain him as my urologist.

June 19, 2020 9:24 AM

All good.

June 17, 2020 10:52 AM

Best experience with my health condition.

May 22, 2020 7:37 AM

We know each other with Dr. Rousseau many years ago and is a better doctor.

May 20, 2020 8:46 AM


May 20, 2020 8:46 AM

Good experience.

May 18, 2020 10:28 PM

always very professional

May 18, 2020 10:28 PM

always with a smile!

April 28, 2020 3:56 AM

This provider has been really excellent about answering any messages I have sent, and patient with me also.

April 27, 2020 6:17 PM

I trust Dr. Russo with my life you can't get a better recommendation than that.

April 27, 2020 4:15 PM

Dr. Rousseau is always professional and concerned about me

April 24, 2020 8:57 AM

Dr. Rousseau is my treating CANER dr., not primary care. I'm on a 3 month schedule for tabs and Zolandex - Cosadex returned to the treatment plain at March visit. Dr. R. is taking good care of me and he has a good staff.

April 6, 2020 5:49 AM

Dr. Rousseau is great with kids & adults. We were a bit concerned to have him do a procedure on our son who is 13 but he was phenomenal!

April 5, 2020 4:46 PM

Awesome experience.

April 4, 2020 9:34 AM

My visit with this medical specialist was great, always look forward to seeing him.

April 4, 2020 9:34 AM

Dr. Layne Rousseau did my surgery a couple years ago and it helped me a lot. He is a real pro and a personal friend. I recommend him to all my friends.

April 4, 2020 7:00 AM


April 4, 2020 7:00 AM

Easy to talk and listen to

March 23, 2020 12:04 PM

We had to wait 1 hour before seeing the doctor. He had a new patient(s) who was recently diagnosed with cancer. We were told appts. were made every ten minutes. This is not enough time especially with a new patient. More time needs to be spent with them, we are usually in and out within 10 mins.

March 23, 2020 12:04 PM

We feel appts. should be spaced further apart especially for new patients or later in the day so he isn't so far behind schedule. When we got there it said he was 15 mins. behind not 1 hour.

March 16, 2020 3:17 PM


March 16, 2020 3:17 PM

always satisfied

March 9, 2020 1:52 PM

I appreciate all that Dr Rousseau has done for me during the past year. My wife and I very much appreciate the time the Dr spends with us during visits to review and explain things fully.

March 9, 2020 1:52 PM

The wait time for this appointment was too excessive. The appt time was 8:50 AM and we arrived at 8:35 per the appt notification. Upon arrival the receptionist mentioned that the Dr was running 10 to 15 minutes behind schedule, which didn't seem unreasonable at the time. At approx. 9:15 I asked the receptionist if I was still in queue and she responded that I was "next in line". Shortly thereafter a nurse entered the waiting area to announce that the Dr was now running 45 minutes behind schedule. At approx. 9:50 a nurse led us to an exam room and the Dr finally arrived shortly after 10. As stated previously this wait time was excessive and I believe some consideration / compensation should be given to us for the delay since my time is worth something and my wife was missing work to be able to attend the appt with me.

March 6, 2020 8:17 PM

dDr Rousseau is great

February 11, 2020 11:35 AM

I had a good experience.

February 10, 2020 3:32 PM


February 10, 2020 3:32 PM

very good

February 4, 2020 12:20 PM

Dr.Rouseau is an excellent caring doctor. Being a specialist I feel like it is sometimes difficult to talk to one of his nurses when a problem comes up.

February 4, 2020 12:20 PM

When i called concerning a kidney stone problem and asked to make an appointment, the call person stated, we are booking into june of 2020. That is ridiculous when you are in the throws of passing a kidney stone! Give urology their call center back so they can do triage over the phone.

February 3, 2020 11:09 PM

Always on time and great patient visit.

February 3, 2020 11:09 PM

Great experience.

February 3, 2020 6:24 PM

THE GOOD PART: Dr. Rousseau was in a very good mood and we had a few laughs. It's always good to see him after 3 months. He feels like a good friend.

February 3, 2020 6:24 PM

THE BAD PART: You forgot to include questions regarding the nurse. Dr. Rousseau's intake nurse had an overtly matter-of-fact attitude. All business, and without the friendly demeanor I usually see with the nurses. Sometimes people have a bad day and it was very busy that day, but it felt to me as if she just didn't like me, and wanted me to know it.

January 30, 2020 5:38 PM

Hello dear dr. Rousseau thank you so very much for your time and all you've done for me.

January 18, 2020 12:58 PM

Dr. Rousseau has been an excellent and caring person that has only my best interest in mind.

January 13, 2020 4:50 PM

I found Dr. Rousseau extraordinarily caring and informative; patient and thorough

January 11, 2020 8:26 AM

excellent explanation of situation and future care possibilities

January 8, 2020 6:52 AM

Good - discussed temporarily ceasing the taking of a prescription in favor of a change in fluids consumed.

January 4, 2020 9:22 AM

Dr. Rousseau is the epitome of what a doctor should be: very competent, concise, polite, engaging - and a plus: has a healthy sense of humor. Clone the man!

January 4, 2020 9:22 AM

This was only my 3rd visit with him. So far I'm a happy camper.

December 30, 2019 4:41 PM

November 19, 2019 9:12 PM

He is very kind, friedly good person.

November 14, 2019 8:29 AM

Dr. Rousseau has a caring personality. He doesn't rush his patients, and makes them feel relaxed and cared for.

November 14, 2019 8:29 AM

All good!

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

When I left his office I felt that I am very fortunate to have him as my urinary specialist. He is very smart and compassionate. He listens to what I say and answers all of my questions. I feel that he is definitely a top notch doctor and I am blessed to have him.

June 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Layne Roussecu is an outstanding doctor who took a personal interest in my health and the growth he removed from my kidney in 2018. He took a very conservative and proactive approach and has given me a "green light" on my health.

June 13, 2019 7:00 PM

My experience w/Dr. Rousseau was always professional. He always explains the procedure he was going to conduct and made me comfortable prior to surgery!

June 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Rousseau explained to me the results of a CT scan that was performed on me on 5/22/2019. He always explains medical issues very clearly.
