I like the fact that Dr. Morrison goes straight to the source of the problem, and then come up with a plan of action to correct it. Also, the office had already taken care of my prescription, prior to me arriving home.

Doctor Morrison was detailed, attentive and knew how to pin point what was wrong with my 91 year old step-father. On top of a good bed side manner she was very patient and answered all his questions with confidence and spent an ample amount of time for the issues we came to see her for. We have made the changes she recommended and there has already been improvement. Her medical assistance and office staff were very helpful and attentive. Thank you and when I need an ENT-I would see her.

She was sooooooooooooo sweet, so professional, so kind, so reassuring, so courteous, so caring, so personable, so well spoken (she speaks to you in a way you can understand not like she's a doctor and is superior to you) she made sure I understood everything that would be taking place and she answered all questions and addressed all concerns. She totally aced my procedure and I experienced no damage to vocal cords nor my parathyroid glands EVEN THOUGH my thyroid was almost 3 times the normal siz

I have been going to Dr. Morrison since about 2013. I have issues with my ears and required medication and yearly check up. The Dr. is the best. Always has time to listen to my questions.

My daughter needed a new-patient appointment with an ENT before she left for college, and Dr Morrison's office was kind enough to squeeze her in with very little notice--we were unbelievably grateful! Dr. Morrison is kind, attentive and straight-forward with information. She inspires trust and is able to calm nervous patients well. Her office staff is efficient, personable and helpful.

In time where a lot of the Specialists are really busy and overwhelmed, Dr. Morrison does care about her patients .she looks at her patient as a human soul. she answers all your questions very attentively .she is very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns. Simply , she does not see you just as another patient......

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!
