Dr. Morton has an excellent bedside manner. He really took the time to talk with me about all of my options for my hip replacement. I have seen a couple of other doctors and had two surgeries that made it hard for me to walk. He did my re-do hip replacement 3 months ago and I haven't felt this good for years! The surgery is a success. Thank you Dr. Morton for helping me walk again. His staff is great and very helpful.
