What People Say About Dr. Gary Morris, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

The most wonderful doctor that know what to do to fix the most complicated problems. I had bone spurs in my Achilles tendons, which was a major surgery. He had to remove my Tendon off my heel, break the bone spur off, put the tendon back on with screws, 17 staples, 2 months of a cast and 6 months of rehab. 12 month later, I had to do the other foot. He is the only one that could do it. He was given to me from Dr. Marcus Single who I was seeing for over 15 years. Both are amazing doctors.

Had knee surgery for torn meniscus extremely painful, dr morris DOES NOT WRITE RX FOR PAIN PILLS!! Nurses at surgical center said, “he is the only surgeon who does not give pain pill pills” thank god my mom had some or I was going to shoot myself. Tracy his nurse is very very rude! His assistant left a stitch in my knee! Front desk girls are rude. And NOW IM TOLD BY HIS ASSISTANT THAT I WILL NEED TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT!! He never told me that! What happened in surgery???

Wonderful Doctor and staff. Dr morris removed a large syst from my ankle. Difficult surgery. 11 staples. I was very nervous. Dr Morris made me feel very relaxed and confident before the surgery. As promised everything went well. Only minor pain after surgery. Tylonal did the trick. All swelling is gone and scar almost gone after only 9 weeks. I strongly recommend Dr Morris. Great Doctor. Wonderful staff.

I’m a 45 yr old single mom and was terrified and unsure how to address the awful pain in my hip. I had complete degeneration, bone-on-bone, mis-shaped femur, bone spurs and the worst imaginable pain every second of the day. Even heavy RX did not help. Dr. Morris worked with me on the decision to replace my left hip and it was the best possible thing I could have done. It literally changed my life, gave me my life back. Dr. Morris and his team are amazing, kind, and beyond helpful. I’m greatful.

03/2002 LEFT HIP REPLACEMENT--Now that I've seen many physicians in Las Vegas since 2002 for other reasons, I've become increasingly aware of how fortunate I am that Dr. Morris did my hip surgery. He does not refer you to his staff on questions he should answer, does not convey an attitude of being too busy, and most importantly I returned to work (standing all day) fully recovered 5 weeks after the surgery (49 years old at the time) and have had no complications since (encompassing 16 years).

I first met Dr. Morris in 2014, he replaced my left hip. It was my first surgery and it was a remarkably excellent experience. Dr. Morris was sensitive, attentive and reassuring. The surgery went perfectly and my rehab team was amazed at the quickness of my recovery. I cannot be more emphatic of my recommendation of Dr. Morris as a surgeon! I recently saw him regarding my other hip and he was every bit as attentive and invested in my well being as he was before my surgery. I totally trust him!

Dr does not listen to patients needs. The total hip replacement I had done was not done well. The hospital was not prepared for the type of surgery nor the kind of pain I was experiencing. I would not recommend Dr morris. I'd recommend Dr Arthur in Aurora, co......

Went to Dr. Morris , knee pain, ended up with torn meniscus tears. Dr. Morris and staff are efficient, friendly, caring, with awesome customer service skills. They have always called me back when I've left message, or written one on the portal. Dr. Morris gave me other alternative ideas, before deciding on knee surgery...I work myself in a Medical field, and believe me, here you are treated as a person, not an insurance policy. I highly recommend Dr. Morris and staff!

I went through several MRI's and I have had knee pain for over a year and a half was schedule to see Dr. Morris. What I was told he could do nothing for me with no explanation of the pain I have been having, there was nothing he could do. Really that a real professional I would never recommend him for his services.

His bedside manner is awful! On my post surgical visit, he told me that they had to go back in. I started to cry. He said to suck it up and left the room. He was a totally different person before surgery. Afterwards, it's like he doesn't want to be bothered.

Dr. Morris was excellent. I felt so comfortable with the Dr. and his staff. The care was great! I hope I don't have the injury that I had, but if I did, I would definitely go back to Dr. Morris. My Achilles is feeling great. I thank Dr. Morris for this. I highly recommend him to anyone the needs Achilles repair. Thank you Dr. Morris
