Specialties

Dr. Richard J Morse has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

One of the best doctors I have ever been too!!! I have been using this practice since 2002 and Dr. Morse is the doctor I request every time my child is sick or needs a well visit. Don't get me wrong, I like all the other doctors and they are very good at what they do, but Dr. Morse seems to be more in tune with my needs and I love his bedside manner with my child. He is very patient, and gentle and kind and caring. He listens to my concerns and takes all the time I need to explain everything to me. He has always made us feel like he truly cares. He even has a great sense of humor with my child, so I don't understand how anyone can give him a bad review. I trust this doctor 100% with my child's life.

Very condesending, felt like I was bothering him. Basically laughs at anything I would say or questions I had. Will only ever see him for sick visits, since I can't choose a doctor.

Seems to be very busy

I had taken my newborn for his first appointment . The doctor seemed to be in a temper. Our polite questions were answered sarcastically. He seemed to be in a great great hurry.His assistants seemed to be in a great hurry to collect fees.
