This was just a checkup to make sure my implants are still fine (both knees, one hip). Dr. Morris and his Physician's Assistant were both really nice and gave me the info I needed. My implants are all doing great (knees are now 13 years old, hip will be 3 years old this fall), as am I, thanks in no small part to the skills of Dr. Morris (hip) and Dr. Lombardi (knees). If you need them, Joint Implant Surgeons is the place to go!
Outstanding! He was very professional but very approachable. I felt very good about how thorough he was in explaining my options and how easy he was to talk to. I would highly recommend him.
He was helpful and explained what he wished to do.
Dr Morris replaced my right knee up at New Albany and the whole process went smoothly and well. My other knee is acting up and I went for xrays and to see Dr Morris here in Athens, which is really convenient for me. I was seen VERY promptly in their clean new facility and the x-ray process was quick and professional, with a very new, state-of-the-art-looking machine. During my consultation with Dr. Morris, we decided to wait and worked out a plan for managing my knee pain without surgery for now, leaving the surgical option open for down the road. All-in-all, a very satisfactory appointment.
Very personable , professional and attentive
Dr is great, but office staff is slow and lacking. I was scheduled for a 9:40 am visit. Did not get called back until almost 10:30. Then waited about 10 minutes for a tech, then another 15 minutes for xrayand then waited another 20 minutes for the doctor. Way to long a wait. Actual time with someone was a total of 20minutes but I was there 2 Hours. Not acceptable!
Prompt, efficient and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Morris has always listened when I have voiced my concerns or have questions and has always answered them to my satisfaction .
It all starts with the receptionist, the x ray tech, then the nurse that goes over your medical history, they all know the part they are responsible for and they do it like fine tuned machine! Doctor Morris an air of confidence that makes me feel very comfortable when we discuss my upcoming knee surgery and always takes the time to answer any questions that I have. Thanks for everything, P.M.
I have always found Dr. Morris to be a very caring person. He has even called me at home to see how I was doing after my wound became infected. He is tops as far as I am concerned and would recommend him to everyone.
Very nice, explained what i needed very well. Outstanding job.
One of the best around. Recommend to anyone looking for a very competent surgeon who has the ability to handle the tough cases. Many think they can - he is the only one I have met that does!
This guy is super, He gave back a life that I hadn't have with a hip replacement. I'm truly greatful and thankful. "Thumbs up to my number #1 surgeon"
Very professional. I've met none better. First class.
Professional, x rays directly across exam room and done quickly. I was a new patient with concerns about hips and knees and was in and out in 45 min with an evaluation with Dr Morriis and all my x rays on a disk($5) for my future use. Very well satisfied with my visit.
Dr Morris is excellent. Our wait time was over an hour. This is not the first time for a long wait. It seems that the doctors are over booked and this puts them behind. When a problem arises with a patient it makes the waiting time problem worse.
He is kind and had my best interest in mind...not his wallet!
