My surgical experience with Dr. Morris was very positive. I found him to be very knowledgable with breast cancer issues. My studies were done in a timely manner and I had surgery within a week I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Morris is very caring as well. I would definitely see him again for my surgical needs.
