I would not be where I am today without the live and care Dr. Morris showed to me. In 2/2013 I went to him my vision was 20/80 in my left and 20/90 in my right. I under went corneal resurfacing, double vetrectomy, laser strengthening on my retinas, and other minor procedures. I also suffer from Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration. I have corneal dystrophy and severe myopia. This all being said. Dr. Morris created miracles in my life. He is truly and always be a hero to me.

I couldn't be happier!!! After 30 years of putting up with poor vision due to massive floaters, Dr Morris cured me. I found him to have wonderful bedside manner. He listened to me and took a lot of time explaining how the procedure was performed and what the expected results were. JW

Dr. Morris showed extreme competency in his examination, diagnosis, and treatment. Not only was he efficient, he was patient in explaining the risks associated with the procedure. I had numerous questions and he took the time to alllay my fears. All the follow-ups have been timely and he has shown a magnificent compassion toward my eye health. I cannot offer anything but a wholeheartedly positive recommendatio for Dr. Morri's and his stsff.

My wife and I had an excellent experience with Dr. Morris and Callahan Hospital. We had phone problems and computer problems but we had zero people problems. Dr. Morris had operated on several friends with Retina problems and they were all pleased with Dr. Morris and Callahan and we were too. We had phone and computers problems that were beyond our control but not a normal circumstance at all. The whole team never faltered and they did a wonderful job. Thank you very much !

I was referred to Dr. Morris following complications created when I had cataract surgery elsewhere. My family and I are all very pleased with the care and services provided by he and his staff. The obvious respect he receives from his coworkers is impressive. I especially appreciate the knowledge that he cares about his patients. I admire his honesty and openess in explaining what can and cannot be corrected. He gave me hope. I am so fortunate to have him as a physcian.
