My husband Jerry recently had DS. surgery with Dr. Morales. He is a very professional, caring, informative surgeon that we would recommend to all of our family and friends. He never seems to be in a hurry and listens to and answers any questions and concerns you may have. This is pretty amazing...more

The very best surgeon. I would highly recommend to anyone. He takes the time to explain everything involved in the procedure, and takes all the time needed to answer any questions. I never felt rushed in the office or the hospital.
