I had surgery by another dr. & went to dr. brent for a different option. I don't think he wanted me for a patient. his assistance suggested I use the dr I had used before. I was not really given any info, except I had a lot of hardware in my neck. they gave me a choice of injections in my back or therapy. I choose the injections, but there was not any follow up on scheduling them until I called the dr. office back, The first injection I had no one talked to me before, during or after.

Dr. Morgan took time to explain my options to me and my wife. He does not "push" for surgery when not needed and takes a conservative approach. He made us feel very good about our decisions.

Dr. Morgan asks a lot of questions and he allows you to ask a lot of questions! He takes his time to ensure that he understands your concerns. My wife first used Dr. Morgan a couple of years ago and we have recommended the doctor to a friend who met with him and thanked us for recommending him.

I was suffering from back pain from two previous lumbar spine surgeries in 2014. I searched for an excellent spine neurosurgeon and found Dr. Morgan. I had my initial examination which was followed up with a Myelogram and CT scan. My diagnosis was a tethered spinal cord and a pedicle screw that was in my existing hardware causing pain from my 2014 back surgeries. My surgery was completely successful. I highly recommend Dr. Morgan and his staff if you require excellent and outstanding care.

After moving to Garland four years ago, I began searching for new doctors, including a neurosurgeon for my husband. The thought of picking a doctor from an insurance book was pretty scary. Luckily for us, a family friend, familiar with doctors in the area, recommended Dr. Morgan. We liked him right away and was impressed with his medical knowledge and ability to find just the right treatment for my husband! We are so thankful to have found such an exceptional doctor!!!

I have known Dr Morgan 20+ years as a Registered Nurse who would take care of his patients post surgery and now I am the patient. I would not consider any other neurosurgeon to assess me or make decisions in the care of my back. Dr Morgan has proven to me over the past 20+ years he is an outstanding physician in neurosurgery.

Long story short I was a trama patient, he tried something knew on me and it failed. My spine never fused and 1 year later my screws broke. I never got better always experiencing extreme pain. His answer was well you broke your back its always going to be this way. His post op care is the real reason for this review. There was absolutely none. He didn't have any notes from my visits. He was short, rushed, and did not care. He didn't even know how many weeks out I was from surgery.
