He did not read my medical history before giving me medical advice that would have put me in the hospital. He told me to cut all carbs from my diet. I have a rare blood disorder, fully documented on the paperwork I gave him, that states I have to be on a HIGH carbohydrate diet. He told me to cut out meat and eat beans and fresh fruits and vegetables which contradicts my GI doctor because I have Crohn's disease, which again was fully documented on the paperwork I gave to him . When I tried to explain both of these conditions verbally to him, he would not listen to me.
I have been going to Jewett Ortho Clinic for 38 years. I played sports for 35 years and had many ortho problems. I've had both shoulders operated on by Dr. Brian Bernard, wonderful Physician! Back surgery by Dr. Munson, again a wonderful experience. Very successful knee surgery by Dr. Krumins. Very complicated wrist surgery by Dr. Fenichel, that was very successful and he was a most concerned Doctor. My recent appointment with Dr. Morris was shocking! I went because of hip and groin pain. He entered the room in a hurry, asked me two questions, I hardly got the words out of my mouth, and he said you need Xray. I had the Xray and then returned to the room. My daughter had come with me, because we have hereditary hip problems in our family. She and her son have had hip surgery. Dr. Morris came back in the room, he looked at the Xray and said you have bursitis. My daughter tried to address the possibility of the inherited hip issue, and he cut her right off. Looked at me and said, do you want a shot of cortisone? I tried to ask a question and he said do you want a shot or not. I said yes. He left the room and came back, gave me the shot, told me to ice my hip every day. Then he started out the door, I asked if I needed a follow up appt. and he said no, I don't need to see you any more. My daughter and I sat there in total shock. Not only was he rude, I had a couple more questions I wanted to ask. When I left there I felt fine, and drove home. An hour later I went for my yearly checkup at the Dermatologist. When I got out of the car, I could not move my left leg. It felt like it was totally asleep. Like when you get Novocain at the dentists office. It was scary. I got out of the car and had to drag my left leg, and I had a hard time pulling my left leg up the step to the curb. I hobbled in to the office holding on to trees and walls. When I got in there, I told the nurse and she said the numbing shot that Dr. Morris gave me before the cortisone injection, must have drained down into my leg, ankle and foot. I was there about an 1 1/2 hours and when I left I needed help to get to the car. I drove home, thank goodness it was not my driving leg. I did not get the feeling back for a couple of hours after I got home. Why wasn't I warned of this side effect? I would never have driven to my other appt., if I had known that was a possibility. Since that time my groin pain is as bad as it was when I went to Dr. Morris. He never addressed the groin pain and I never got to ask a question about it. I now have an appt. with another hip Dr. & I will never recommend Dr. Morris to anyone.
I would not recommend this doctor to anyone that I know. For a first visit I went with a brief history of what brought on my knee problem and prepared a few questions for Dr. Morris. He wasn't interested in listening to any history at all. He immediately started to hurry me by asking what's going on with your knee today. He was in a hurry from the start. He looked at my x-ray, moved the knee around, and gave me a diagnosis. I asked him a question about one of his observations. He sharply answered "I TOLD YOU ALREADY" and continued to answer my question. He was finished with my exam in 5 short minutes. Very poor manners, I left with questions, very unfriendly. I actually had to ask his nurse a couple of my simple, unanswered questions after he left. If you want the best, Dr. Morris is not that.
I have had a complete knee replacement and a complete hip replacement done by Dr. Morris and both procedures were a complete success. He came to the hospital to see me every day that I was there after these procedures to check how I was doing and to encourage me. I highly recommend Dr. Hugh Morris if you are considering a knee or hip replacement.
