Compassionate, trust worthy and friendly and above all an excellent doctor
in Baton rouge |
I have a rare form of glaucoma that is difficult to treat. Dr. Morgan has worked extensively and patiently with me and helped me more than what should be expected of him. He is a true professional skilled in academics of the eye. He is a kind and compassionate physician. I thank him for his care and don't know what I would have done without him.
