If I could leave less I would!!! This woman KILLED my father!!! During this Covid 19 stuff he was in Eisenhower hospital because Dr Morgan over medicated him which cause a fall then broken hip. 2 weeks in the hospital ~ she had him transferred to a rehab (for his hip) he bled out from a GI issue she left unattended to!!! No follow up on her part. Keep yourself, parents, grandparents away from this practice!!!!!

I have found another pulmonologist, after 2 visits to Dr. Morgan. She gets a series of bad doctor marks for not poor follow up. I waited a week for Oxygen, she consistently couldn't be bothered to fill out forms correctly. She LIED telling me a patient must use tanks for a year before getting a POC. After diagnosing Restrictive Lung Disease, she said "...this doesn't just happen, usually it signifies heart, liver or kidney failure, so you need to go to a cardiologist, I've done my job". Then she delayed a referral to cardiologist by over a month. I am assured my heart is fine and there is no reason to suspect any other organ failure, thanks for scaring the bejesus out of me. Evidently there is a special corner in hell where incompetent lying uncaring doctors can find nurse and front office staff that match her disdain for patients. The Urn on the reception desk labeled "Ashes of Problem Patients" says it all. Run out of this office if you value your life.

My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Morgan's. We feel very fortunate to have her as our primary care physician. Never have we waited more than 15 minutes before her nurse, Sandy, who calls our name out to take us back to Dr. Morgan's examination room. Sandy is a wonderful nurse who is intelligent and knows not only medical skills, but also plays the role as an efficient partner to Dr. Morgan. As a retired R.N., I can easily say they are both non-judgemental, which means so much!
