I was very impressed with the entire appointment. From the moment valet took my car I felt that I was in good hands. I checked in and in about 10 minutes I getting my x ray done. Not long after that I was talking to Dr. Morrison. He was informative and actually very comforting, as I don't care for surgery AT ALL. The nurses and assistants took over from there and got me through pre-operation. It was like a team with everyone doing there part masterfully. I would definitely recommend to anyone considering hip replacement.

Dr. Morrison is a skillful and caring surgeon with a great bedside manner. He is supported by a clinical staff that is knowledgeable and responsive and an administrative staff that is attentive and friendly. The SJRI physical therapy group are incredible professionals who push and motivate you to achieve your best results. Dr. Morrison’s ability and the professionalism of everyone I encountered made the entire bilateral knee replacement a positive and life changing experience. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Morrison and his team.

I recently had the requirement to have a partial knee replacement done. External feedback had me highly biased to use Dr. Craig Morrison at Southern Joint. How fortunate was I to have Dr. Morrison and his extremely competent team perform the replacement and guide me in recovery. I believe they wrote the book on effective communications and execution. From the moment I entered Centennial Hospital till I completed Physical Therapy six weeks post surgery, I knew I had the very best care possible. Not looking to have the other knee done but clearly know where I will go if that every becomes necessary. Can't say enough about the SJRI Team!

Very impressed from the first visit with Dr. Morrison to the day of surgery. He was easy to talk to and ask questions. I was very impressed with the care and setting you at ease. My follow up visit was again smooth and my surgery and recovery went amazingly well more then I could expect having bilateral major surgery.
