Excellent. Had a minor procedure that changed my life! Procedure was painless and 100% successful. For the first time in decades, I can actually breathe through my nose AND my dry mouth is gone. Love Dr. Morgan!

Review for Dr. Morgan

My husband has literally become zombie like under his care. He went from a very active man to a man that cannot feed himself. Cannot bath himself. And sleeps 80 % of the day.
