I have gone to Dr. Veurink for 2 orthopedic conditions both of which required surgery. He is very compassionate and takes all the necessary time to explain and answer questions. I feel confident in his skill and knowledge. In my opinion, he’s “top notch” and I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Gregg Gurwitz, MD

Dr Rensch took 5 minutes to Dx a problem that had stymied other doctors for 15 years He picked up on abdominal masses that were ignored by the hospital and my surgeon. Beyond those, he’s taken excellent care of my complex gastric problems. I call him my savior.

Although Dr. Morris said I was a good candidate for knee surgery, I wasn't prepared to do that yet. He didn't push it on me, instead we opted for another round of orthovisc injections. I appreciated his willingness to work with me.

Review for Dr. Donald Morris Jr, MD

No idea, have never met the Dr. Although, he is considered my PCP. The Nurse Prac. is awesome. She is very thorough and listens to you. Worst part about this office is the front office. Never answer phones during office hours and act like you're bothering them.
