    Patient Comments (2)
    It can be difficult to get in to see Dr. Morton. It can be a very long wait (over 45 minutes) for what is supposed to be a quick nurse visit (e.g., to check blood pressure, get a shot, etc.). One of the nurse practitioners has been discourteous to me on more than one occasion to the point where I do not want to go to the doctor's office at all.
    After my 1st checkup I called twice, for two unrelated appointments. The first time I was told he wasn't available for a month and to go to urgent care. The second time, luckily, they fit me in with the nurse practitioner. Late to my appointment by 20 minutes, I had to either reschedule in a week or go to urgent care. I understand theirs other patients but I didnt feel as important as them. A patient should get to see his doctor more than an urgent care waiting room, even if I was late once.
