    I extensively researched shoulder specialists and was very fortunate to find Dr. Morris. He has outstanding medical credentials and in particular, I liked his focus on continuing research in his field. I sense that his mind runs at twice the speed of the rest of us but he is very easy to talk to. Dr. Morris thoroughly answered all of my questions and explained, in detail, his surgical findings during my post-op visit. I am a few weeks post-surgery (rotator cuff, bicep tenodesis) and I'm extremely pleased with the outcome so far. Those looking for the best shoulder/elbow specialist need not look any further.

    Dr. Morris saved me after two failed shoulder replacements. I would recommend him to anyone seeking professional and caring service. My only reservation is his manic style. He seems rushed - which he probably is - but he definitely repaired my shoulder to the extent it could be healed. I will forever be in his debt.

    My mother fell and broke her hip. She was quite elderly and Dr. Morris explained the process of what needed to be done to repair her hip. He was very compassionate, detailed, and explained everything to us and made us feel at ease. He even came by her room late at night before her procedure the following morning to see if she had any concerns. Great bedside. His repair of her hip went great and she had little to no pain in recovery from the hip. I would hightly recommend Dr. Brent Morris.

    Gentle, through, caring. Explained options with pros and cons. Was not pushy, said I could go home and think about different treatments. The desk staff seemed annoyed we were there. The staff in the treatment area were professional and efficient.

    I had a SLAP tear and Dr. Morris was incredible!!! His manner and demeanor put me completely at ease and he clearly explained all of the risk and benefit of the procedure so I was very well informed and comfortable about the procedure. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone needing shoulder surgery. Absolutely amazing fellow!!!
