  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.

    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

One Star

They configurable changed my appointment even though it was booked three months in advance. I was tohave a test done that their office kept forgetting to get schedule and then we would call the hospital and the doctor to remind them and then they would get to it. They did the day of the appointment. The dr spent five minutes maybe to talk to us and about twenty minutes out in the hall with the door open talking to office staff about other doctors retiring and etc, needless to say not at all concern about the patient . I am very disappointed by this doctor and can't recommend him to anyone!

Exceptional professional in his field

Dr. Morris was highly recommended to me by his peers-two of my physicians that I highly respect. I was astounded by the amount of time he spent with me and the time he took to answer my questions. He followed up with lab work when my regular physician did not follow through. The one thing I would recommend is that you make sure that if you see this physician is find out who is going to order and fill you perscriptions and the same with any medical test before you go. This was more a problem with my primary care physicians office staff and nurse but it is still a good idea to look into. Dr. Morris found things no one else was looking for. I have already recommended this doctor to others I care about.
