    Dr. Morton is a very good doctor. He takes time to listen, he cares, and will be straight up with you while at the same time being very understanding! Very sweet! I do miss the old staff members though!

    I had a lap band procedure about 8 yrs ago. I was in his office at least once a week having fluid removed and added. I stayed sick to my stomach from day one. I was in the hospital and emergency room on several occasions.I kept telling Dr Morton something was wrong. Over and over again. He would not remove my lap band and said I wasn't chewing my food. I had the band took out over a yr ago and it took 4 hrs to remove it because it was entangled in my liver.PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't go to him.
