Trent K. Russell, M.D., MHA, FAAP


Trent Russell, M.D., MHA, FAAP, cares for pediatric patients at Lake Regional Clinic – Osage Beach. He sees children of all ages, from birth through adolescence, for well visits and general pediatric concerns and illnesses.

"It is a privilege to watch these young people grow to adulthood and know I have been a part of their life," Dr. Russell said. "One of the most satisfying aspects of pediatrics at this point in my career is having former patients who are now parents choose me to be their children's doctor."

Dr. Russell has been named "Best Pediatrician" several times in Lake Lifestyle magazine's Best of the Lake contest.
