    Dr. Morrissey is the finest Dr. I have ever had the opportunity to meet. He has done 4 thorasic surgeries on me and never have I had a problem. He done my first surgery in 1972. Never have I seen a finer Dr. than him. I would recommend him to any one who has the same problem. I will never forget this man. Im sure he saved my life. Nothing else to say except I Love the man.
