Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Morgan is a wonderful physician. I could not praise his expertise and that of his medical support staff more. A word of warning however, his front office staff are a nightmare to deal with.

Fantastic doctor - even got to see him the first visit. Very professional, very articulate. Would definitely recommend him. Office staff were prompt and friendly, and the ANP staff were outstanding as well.

The doctor explained what the MRI was showing and I was happy that he said it would be no big deal to fix my back.

Very kind, concerned physician. He personally called me one afternoon to discuss some test results and he was so personable and unassuming that I almost hung up at first because I didn’t think it was really him - I’m not accustomed to that kind of service.

I found Dr. Morgan in 2002 through a much-trusted referral (another doctor whom Dr. Morgan operated on praised him highly). Dr. Morgan carefully analyzed my films and advised against surgery (imagine THAT!) He explained the non-surgical options and advised me to come back when I'd exhausted those. This year he reviewed my new films and has even more options for me. Glad to be in Dr. Morgan's capable hands, he's a treasure!

I had an appointment with his Nurse Practitioner where after explaining how I was loosing the use of my right arm, and loosing mussel, and couldn't wipe my own a__, I was sent for an MRI and X-rays. I then had a follow up appointment with the Dr. where.....after 50 minute sitting in the back room waiting on the Dr. a Dr.'s assistant comes in and said "The Dr. wants to know if you have any symptoms?" telling me that he hadn't bothered to read the notes from his NP in my chart. Scary!!!
