Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor at Scripps. The doctor never entered my test results in my medical record and didn’t refer me to a specialist. I found out three and a half years later I had a serious condition. I would never recommend this doctor and will see what other action I can take regarding her neglect in my care.

My experience during my Sept. 23 visit with Dr. Morton was neither compassionate nor was there good communication. 1) There was no pain deadening before the procedure began. As a result I suffered excruciating pain as she repeatedly probed high into my nose. I literally screamed but she said nothing and just continued, clinically. 2) There was no conversation prior to or after the procedure about what to expect. 3) This is the ONLY time I have ever complained about a doctor.
