What began as a basic interest for Fred Russo soon blossomed into a diverse educational narrative, weaving together all the best of what he had to offer. Building on the base of undergraduate studies in nursing, Fred went on to earn a Master’s Degree of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, California.
After practicing in integrative clinics and hospitals for some time, Fred decided to move to Seattle where he succeeded in fulfilling a personal dream by earning his Doctorate in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine at Bastyr University. He continued at the school for several years afterward, serving as adjunct faculty while also maintaining his own private practice.
Dr. Russo furthered his education by studying at the Sichuan Combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine Hospital, the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the Hubei College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. He received Certification in Traditional Chinese Medicine Oncology during these studies.
Dr. Russo also received certification in advanced acupuncture training in Hubei, China and is board certified in Oriental Medicine by The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Bringing all of this knowledge back with him to the States, Dr. Fred Russo opened and continues to maintain his own private practice based in Seattle, WA.
