Dr. Morris is a gem - truly a rare find in our area. He is kind, compassionate, caring and very thorough. I feel like I am in excellent hands with him. His entire practice has been extremely responsive and get me in to see him immediately when I'm having symptoms that can be very scary. Wait time is minimal - they are fast! I trust this doctor with my life ... and I've been to a lot of doctors. Choosing Dr. Morrwas the best decision I've made for my health. Excellent, excellent care.

Great doctor... I'm a really difficult patient because of my 30-something allergies so the fact that he puts up with me says everything you need to know about a doctor. I've had over 40 doctors that won't see me because of my allergies

I'm struggling with this. It's my first negative review of soooo many wonderful drs. I never met Dr Morris, but he quickly read my echo report and it was quite obvious he looked at a prior year. I had echoes at Albany Med with completely different results. Ended up with a heart attack and cardiomyopathy. My echoes now show poor EF. I am soooo disappointed that a doc from CCA would be so quick with a reading. For a patient, this is more than just a mistake, it shatters my trust.
