Staff is very friendly, wait is usually just a couple of minutes, and Dr. Morpet has a wonderful bedside manner. He is never rushed and takes as much time as needed to answer your questions.

I have obstructive sleep apnea and suspected narcolepsy, and I was referred to an ENT to investigate the possibility of removal of my tonsils as an adult due to their size. His examination took all of fifteen seconds - literally - because all he did was a glance in my throat and feel my tonsils by pressing on my neck as I am telling him why I have come in. With a complete lack of any credible bedside manner Dr. Morpeth proceeds to tell me my sleep apnea is caused by obesity (I've had massively enlarged tonsils since I was a child) and that removal of the tonsils carried a risk much higher than the supposed benefits and that it wouldn't eliminate the apnea, states he would NOT operate, then proceeded to ask "Is that all?" Yes, yes it was - and I will be seeking a second opinion. I felt judged, condescended to, and most importantly, not heard. I would not recommend.

Dr. Morpeth did a CT scan for my chronic sinus symptoms. Upon my initial appointment he was rude, curt, and short with me. He had zero bedside manner. After my Ct scan he told me that I obviously was not having any sinus infections and that it was probably just migraines. He then went on to say that I was just making up that I was sick and that he could not help me. I would never recommend going to see him if you are in pain or in need of help in any form. He is an arrogant jerk!!

I went to Dr. Morpeths office today because of pain in my throat and bumps on the back of my tongue. He barley examined my tongue. He came in the room and left in probably under a minute and basically told me that some people tongues are just different. I tried to explain to him that these are new and my tongue has not always been this way. He kind of acted as if he was just in a hurry and was trying to get rid of me. Now I am left to find another dr with no answers and daily throat pain.

I would not recommend this physician to anyone. My college daughter was referred to him because of tonsil stones, recurrent tonsillitis, and ulsers on her tonsils. He and nurse entered the room and never introduced themselves. He did not act concerned at all about my daughter’s issues. His bedside was terrible. He was very rude, cocky, and insensitive to my daughter who had tears her in her eyes from her pain. I would be willing to try another doctor in this practice but will not Dr Morpeth.

Dr. Morpeth has been treating me for salivary cancer which he diagnosed after I found a lump on my cheek. He is reserved and quiet, but he is competent and friendly. I have found he doesn't share deep detail about your prognosis. If you want detail he will explain things. I find his brevity helpful because it keeps the visits short, but I know he will answer any concern I may have. He has a good reputation as a surgeon. My surgery, which was delicate, went very well.

Dr. Morpeth is an outstanding physician. I suffered a fall causing a severely deviated septum with extensive scarring. I had great difficulty breathing through one nostril, and the other was partially blocked. Dr. Morpeth performed surgery on me at Saint Francis Hospital (which is also five star) and completely repaired the damage to the extent that it is as though my problem never existed. I could not have received better care or a better outcome.

I am so disappointed in this doctor and my entire experience!! I regret not sticking with dr.blankenship!! I switched to dr morpeth instead of just rescheduling. I've had a mass on my neck for a while and wanted to get it check out! I went back for a follow up w/dr morpeth and he was so DRY, NONCHALANT, and RUDE! He looked at my neck and said he doesn't see a problem but couldn't tell me what it is! CT scan done I called & they have my results but only he can tell me but won't return my calls ??

After months of suffering, I finally went to an ENT. I explained deviated septums have ran in my family. He didn't do anything but look at my nose and tell me I was stuffed up. Duh! He wrote me a prescription for a z-pack and Allegra, which I already had, and charged me $225 for a visit which my insurance didn't cover. I will definitely search for someone more willing to help me get to the root of my problem rather than a quick write off. A general practitioner could've done the same thing.

Frankly, I was a little nervous about seeing Dr. Morpeth since I read some of the bad reviews, but I decided to go with an open mind. He was great. He was reserved and quiet, but kind. He asked the right questions and took time to answer mine. I thought he and the staff did a wonderful job.

Quite literally the most inept, uncaring, unprofessional, incompetent medical physician I have ever known. I had a persistent PRODUCTIVE cough, and breathing difficulties for several weeks. After a 120 second examination, quite literally, this spoof of a doctor told me he couldn't see anything..........................and that, they say, was that! A few weeks later I suffered a heart attack and was told that ALL my symptoms were HIGHLY indicative of a congestive heart condition. A quack!!!!!

To be short and blunt, see another doctor if you are looking for help for your child, specifically in the tonsil area. He comes across very arrogant and uncaring. He looked at my daughter all of 5 seconds, did not ask, nor care to hear about her history. Save yourself time and frustration and see someone else. I would NEVER recommend him.
