    Dr Morrison is a great ENT! She is very thorough and always takes the time to explain your diagnosis in terms you can understand. She will listen to all of your concerns and make sure that you don't leave with unanswered questions or ambiguous recommendations! I highly recommend.

    She takes her time and listens. She only recommends what is needed and doesn't over medicate or over diagnose.

    Dr. Morrison is great, she answers any questions I have and has taken the time to make sure any concern is taken care of. I have visited her office several times and she does Adult ear tubes right in her office! As an adult I have issues with flying. It is quick and easy and I am able to drive home. Also, I like the check in process, it is all done on a tablet and it is very easy to use!
