Marlon Russell, M.D.

Internal Medicine

I am excited about patients actively participating in their care with 24-hour access and readily available information to make informed decisions. I love to study and stay current with new innovations in medicine and talk with my patients about new recommendations and where things are heading. Getting their personal take on the subject matter helps me devise an individualized plan for them. After my grandmother’s death, I decided to become a doctor. It was her wish and she used to say to me that some people want to become doctors and some were meant to be doctors – and I was meant to be one. I wanted to reach as many people as I could and internal medicine offered just that. If I wasn’t a doctor I would probably become a writer or a farmer. I have an extensive imagination and a green thumb. I exercise nightly after work. I enjoy cooking. I love sailing, the fine arts, and all music. As a doctor, I am most proud of my career path. I was trained at USC – one of the best healthcare systems. I worked in the motion picture industry and served at one of the best teaching and research facilities in the world – UCLA. Now I am able to utilize those experiences at Heritage – the best medical group in Southern California’s High Desert. I have learned from my patients to always listen first. I am never quick to judge and attempt to understand not just by words but by variations in cultures and non-verbal cues. My patients can expect the best care I can give, more than ordinary care always, and to be treated like family.
