He's very thorough. He has the heart of a teacher and we'll take time to explain what he's thinking so that you feel like you're on the same team. I really appreciate that about it.

Dr. Morris was very polite, knowledgeable, and took a lot of interest in trying to figure out my child's diagnosis. I have never had a doctor be so informative and really care about their patient as much as Dr. Morris did at our visit. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anybody!
