He didn't tell me my diagnosis. Had I known what it was, I could have started treatment and prevented further damage to my kidneys.

Dr. Morales was very compassionate and proactive in diagnosing and treating me for diabetes insipidus. I ended up in the hospital twice during this time and he visited me both times and was patient in explaining what was going on. He advocated for me and even helped me get appointments with other doctors. I will say that I was less than impressed with others in his office. If you need an appointment, wait for HIM, not one of his partners.

I have been seeing Dr. Morales for nearly 10 years for a kidney disease. He typically sees you within 10 minutes of your appointment. He really listens and trusts that you know your body better then anyone. The best doctor I've ever seen. He won't ever rush you or make you feel like your taking too much time. You can have a 5 minute visit or a 30 minute visit. Highly recommended.

Outstanding! I initially was referred to Dr. Morales to control hypertension, which he has done with professionalism & care. Unlike many specialists, Dr. Morales listens & has provided me with advice on other medical issues also, treating the whole person. He's responsive to my specific needs & truly goes above and beyond. I rate his staff; his physician assistant & receptionist 5 stars also. I'm always able to talk to a live person, not voicemail. I highly recommend Dr. Morales! Ten stars...
