I took my daughter to see him for scoliosis pain. He never made eye contact with me, or my daughter and kept talking over me when I tried to tell him about her pain. He didn't care and was in a rush to finish. He told her to take warm showers at night like she's never tried this before. He refused to give us a note for the school nurse so that my daughter could have a little extra time between classes to stop at her locker so she wouldn't have to carry a heavy backpack filled with books the enti

Dr. Morrison was quite knowledgeable but there was virtually no eye contact. This disturbed me.

Dr. Morrison is quite simply the best Doctor I've ever come across. He did my scoliosis surgery years ago. There happened to be a Rubik's Cube on the nightstand when he came in the night before the surgery to review the details of the surgery and to reassure me. While he was talking to me, he idly picked up the cube and started playing with it. A short time later he wrapped up what he was saying, and walked out. The first two layers of the cube were completed. He's very intelligent AND caring.

I had an accident and broke my tibia and fibula. He was the surgeon on call. He was excellent in his technical abilities which involved not only setting the bones but inserting a rod. As he explained, the rod stabilizes the broken bone, which prevented me from having one leg shorter than the other one. My leg healed as planned, and I never had any pain or discomfort. I found him to be very caring and always found time to listen to my questions and to allay my concerns.
