Have you seen Dr. James Morris?
June 23rd, 2017
I was referred to Dr. Morris by another urologist after multiple scans and a scope were unable to determine the cause of my severe pain, kidney inflammation and urinary problems. She chose Dr. Morris specifically because he was trained in the use of the surgical robot and she felt I needed exploratory surgery and possibly reconstructive surgery. After waiting for an hour and a half, I was taken for an ultrasound. I waited another hour before finally seeing the doctor. He spent about 3 minutes with me, did not seem to listen to my concerns at all and barely flipped through the notes from the consulting physician. He ordered another CT scan, which was not able to be scheduled for another month and told me that if there is a problem the scans should show something. He then told me the good news was that pain in the area I was having it was either urinary, gynecological, or bowel related and walked out. He gave me no instructions for follow up. It was a complete waste of 3 hours and now I will have to find another urologist.

August 12th, 2016Lack of Concern
His total lack of concern for patient care and failure to listen to the patient is DANGEROUS. It is clear that he is only concerned with volume - getting you out as quickly as possible. His lack of concern led me to continue living in excruciating pain for almost a year, spending thousands in additional testing, pointless doctor visits and procedures culminating in his recommending for me to get a nerve stimulator implanted to attempt to stop the pain. When I finally got him to listen and actually palpate spot that I had been repeatedly describing to him as causing the extreme pain, he said "that's not supposed to be there" ..."you need to see a specialist to see if he can do anything about it"..... Then escorted me out and said he would refer me and send all my information. Two days later I contacted the new doctor (I am in extreme, uncontrollable pain!) and according to his office, morris had NOT referred me and they had not recieved ANY information from him. I had my GP contact the new doctor and see if he could do anything to speed up my visit and his nurse confirmed that morris had not sent anything. Days later, the new doctors office had still not recieved anything from morris, let alone contacting them and actually telling them that I was in EXTREME, UNCONTROLLABLE pain and needed to be helped as soon as possible....... My GPs office had to try to facilitate morris' office sending anything and I still don't know if they ever did. I am continuing to live in pain while I am waiting for surgery......

I had been a patient of Dr. Morris for a couple of years on an unrelated issue. When I started going to him, he took over doing my prostate exams. Although my PSA numbers were very low, he felt something during a digital exam that turned out to be prostate cancer. He performed surgery to remove my prostate. I find him to be a very good doctor and an excellent surgeon.

Dr. Morris is an affable man with very good medical knowledge and skills. My family member has been seeing him for more than a decade. My and my family member's (the patient) concern is the unbelievable wait time and Dr. Morris' time with patients. In the past five years, we have waited from one to three hours to be seen, only for him to spend 1-3 minutes with us. The last time he spent one minute with my family member, I bristled and brought it to his attention. The next time, he spent three minutes with my family member; yet, he seemed as if he was "chomping at the bit" to leave the room. I have seen Dr. Morris' medical partners (with full waiting rooms) still finish well ahead of him. Generally, their patients leave with a contented look or smile. Alas, Dr. Morris' patients tend to leave with frustrated, angry, or disappointed looks. Except for one of the receptionists and one of the nurses, the rest of the clerical and nursing staffs are not cordial. This office could use a course on customer service.
September 29th, 2014No proper post surgical follow up
Had surgery done by him and have never seen his face post surgery. Very unhappy with his lack of medical care or concern. On surgery f/u appt, saw RN and told her I had questions for doctor and she asked me what they were and never saw the doctor. I will find a new urologist since after major surgery and no follow up care.

like everyone else wait time is rediculous and don't know where he spends it unless just too many people scheduled. no time at all spent with patients. after my surgery told them it did not work and they told me it could take up to a year! if that was the case and knowing now that it did not work i would never have had the surgery. do not like this doctors bedside manner or his stuffy claustrophic office or staff

My mother was referred by the ER doctor, I had medical records faxed to Dr.Morris' office but he or staff did not bother to look at them, he just ordered the same labs and urine test to be performed in his office, which I think is a waste of insurance claims. The staff does not follow the HIPPA laws and Privacy Act. My mom was asked about her medical condition with the door open and the office and hallways are very tiny. My mom and another patient was called to the back at the same time and given urine specimen cups and told to sit at the restroom door and wait to each other is finished to obtain a sample and leave in restroom. Dr.Morris asked medical history questions without allowing time to answer before he would ask the next question, and did not give eye contact while listening to the answer, just kept his head down writing what ever he wanted the answer to be. Mind you, he did not look at medical records, but blurted out to my mom that "it could be bladder cancer, but I'm not saying that's what it is until we get more tests done" well I think that statement could have been left out completely especially on a first visit. The office is very out dated, small and uncomfortable.
July 16th, 2013Father has bladder cancer
He is always late !!! My dad had a simple out patient procedure . He did not even bother to come out and talk to us after the procedure. The nurse put us in a consult room and told us he wanted to speak to us , and he never came. When question he said he did not see us, we were right where we were told to go. Then after he did not to the proper paperwork to let my dad be discharged , we had to wait an additional hour before leaving. He is getting paid , not doing it for free. Why can't care about my dad? If he does he sure has a horrible way of showing it.

This doctor is a nice enough person, has a generally pleasing manner, and strikes me as medically competent although he really has not been able to do all that much to help alleviate my condition. What I most strongly object to is (a) the difficulty of getting an appointment with him to begin with; and (b) the fact that (in my experience) he so often fails to honor appointment times. I understand that occasionally, any doctor will run behind in his appointments. However, on my last 3 consecutive visits, he has run at least an hour behind time. On two of those occasions, I got tired of waiting (as long as an hour and a half), so I left, notifying the staff that I would need to reschedule, which was in and of itself a frustrating experience. Most people have lives to get on with and jobs to go to, so they cannot waste their time sitting around in a waiting room, waiting to see a doctor who, like a New York subway train, may or may not be on time.

After my surgery I had to go back to him within the week with the catheter and was very sick from surgery and had to wait an hour out in waiting room with lots of people with the bag on my side. Felt so humiliated then I asked the lady can I go sit in the back and she had no compassion at all. When they finally called me to the back I had another 15 min. wait in the room and started throwing up from being in so much pain and Dr. Morris came in and was not in a good mood with my situation. I did tell him how rude his staff was to me and he did address them with the problem while I was there. I also told him when someone comes in after surgery that they should not have to wait over 15-20 min. to see him. A person is already in so much pain and doesn't feel up to sitting in a waiting room with people gaulking at them. I'm still having trouble from my surgery in 2010....
