I've had the privilege to know Dr. Morrissey. He is without a doubt absolutely is one of the finest Heart Surgeons in this country. I met Jim Morrissey in 1970 in Stockton, CA. Back then as is today, was a man of such vast knowledge of his deicated surgical craft, I was in awe constantly. Compassion, & upmost care of all people. My Father in-law Donald Schene was another of God's finest Men. Dr. Morrissey efforts to give his friend and our family more time together was heroic. E. Green.
