      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 considering the amount of surgeries he performs each week. Also, his staff is equally amazing. Thanks to all of you for making Jerry's surgery a a smooth, reassuring experience.

      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
