We went to her office June 2018 she requested Blood work, and told me it was not a rush that it could wait for my son's 2yr bw. I called the next day after the visit and was advised she was on vacation, and they could not help me. I got Blood work done in Aug, I called for results in Sept because I had not heard back Dr called me and left a VM that not all the results are back, called in October nothing from her, called in Nov and a different office answered telling me Dr. Morse had moved.

Don't listen to all of the bad reviews that were left for Dr. Morse! People who are unsatisfied with their diagnoses/results often leave bad reviews for doctors, whereas people who are satisfied with their visits don't feel it's necessary. Dr. Morse was always warm with me and my mother and is a PHENOMENAL neurologist. I never felt intimidated by her and I knew that I could trust her. I'm super upset to find out she's relocated to Boston, you'll be missed by those who appreciate your work!

She insulted my autistic son when she herself needs to eat a cheeseburger. Implied my child’s skin tone was a serious illness, abruptly left the appointment and I took my child to an Endriconology dr who said there’s nothing wrong with him to the level of her induation. So CHOP in Pottstown was worth the dr and professional demeanor . Morse’s office staff is as ice cold as she is. Maybe It’s time to consider staying home to raise her children, her heart is not in her work anymore.

All the reviews that say she’s the worst are correct! Madison School District paid for her to have a “consultation” with my son, she spent 15min with us, drilling my 8yr old. She was cold and intimidating to him. He struggles with reading and writing which is why we were there. And she put “Mild Autistm” in his report! Insane, and now the school wants my son in an isolated classroom. The school and her are over diagnosing kids for more $$ from the state. Now I’m spending 4K to undo this damage.

I read an earlier review which described this Doctor as "worthless" which I thought was harsh. I decided to take my child to her nonetheless. It was a mistake. She WAS worthless. By far, the worst neurologist I have encourtered. There were no medical tests conducted. Nothing but foolish talk and a lapse in listening skills. My son did not feel comfortable with her because he is very smart and can detect incompetence just as well as I can. I do not recommend her to anyone.

Dr Morse wasted my time. She never followed through on what she said or followed up. I would like a refund for my time and money my insurance paid her. Find another doctor, she's worthless.

Her office tells me that she is only available 9-2 for appointments. Really? I have to take my child out of school to see her? She is not worth that. No warning but a call 3 was before his appointment and then tells me they left me a message a week ago during the holidays. Do they only think of themselves? That is fine but if they don't care about their patients then patients shouldn't go to her. Which is why I won't go to her and won't ever recommend anyone else to go to her.
