There are not enough adjectives in the English language to describe how wonderful Dr. Morrison is!!!!!

June 2017
Dr. Morrison is the best physician I have ever had. I trust her so much I have my son now seeing her.

June 2017
Dr. Morrison is one of the two best providers I have ever had the pleasure of calling my physician. Very knowledgeable, compassionate and I never feel reuse. Never. I have the utmost confidence in my Dr.

June 2017
Have seen Dr. Morrison for a number of years and appreciate the attention she pays to my health issues, and her ability to manage the computer while staying connected in the office visit.

June 2017
Laurel Morrison is an outstanding physician! Her knowledge, level of care, and her care & concern for my well-being is insurmountable! I wouldn´t want anyone else as my primary physician!

June 2017
I´ve been seeing Dr Morrison for over 10 years! while I´m easy going and happy to see other providers when she´s unavailable, I really value her care of me! I went in for physical symptoms but ended up crying over emotional stress and she verbalized she´s glad to know what´s going on in my family.

June 2017
Dr. Morrison always takes the time to understand my concerns and answer my questions. I have great confidence in her and the care she provides.

June 2017
I have been seeing Laurel since 2001 and hope she will always be my PCP. 6. PT.

May 2017
Dr. Laurel Morrison is a great doctor. My husband and son also see her now.

May 2017
Excellent doctor. Takes time to sort through options. Researches latest practices to provide best advice. Listens well.

May 2017
I have recommended this care provider to many others.

May 2017
My regular doctor wasn´t able to see me at such short notice so I appreciated the time and care Dr. Morrison gave me.

May 2017
Dr. Morrison is by far the best doctor that I have ever had!

May 2017
Dr. Morrison is the best doctor I´ve ever had. She is very thorough and explains everything. I never feel rushed and feel like she genuinely cares about me as her patient and as a person. She was also very responsive to my question I sent through the portal after my appointment.

May 2017
My first visit with Dr. Morrison and I had a lot to cover. She was patient with me, efficient, kind.

May 2017
Dr. Morrison IS THE REASON I stay with Virigina Mason. She is AMAZING!! She is the best doctor I have ever had and I can tell her absolutely anything and never feel judged and I know that she cares about me and my health. She truly is a phenomenal doctor!!

May 2017
I´m getting to know Dr. Morrison. My impression after a couple of visits is that she reaches for medication (for me) quite quickly. Of course the medication she has prescribed has worked well but I´d prefer, whenever possible to find unmedicated solutions.

May 2017
I was a new patient seeking time with Dr. Morrison to discuss a panic attack. The team was incredible and scheduled an appointment the same day I called so I could get help immediately. Dr. Morrison was incredible - great listener, patient and very empathetic. She was very thorough, answering my questions and carefully explaining my treatment options. She also followed up on my lab results immediately and passed along a few kind words wishing me to feel better soon. The appointment and care received was some of the best I´ve had to date. I´m a big fan of the team and will gladly continue to seek treatment with them. Thanks for the time, care and compassion demonstrated Dr. Morrison!

April 2017
Dr. Morrison was fantastic!

April 2017
Dr Morrison is a understanding, caring, knowledgable provider. I know she´s a busy, popular, provider, but she makes me feel like she has all the time in the world to listen to me and understand my concerns and questions. She has provided me with many years of excellent care and has made a significant difference to my life and well-being. I feel lucky to be her patient.

April 2017
I always appreciate the way my provider discusses my care and treatment options.

April 2017
incredibly patient and caring. she is phenomenal.

April 2017
I brought in a list of items to discuss with Dr. Morrison and we went over each of them. One concern was "how do I know if I still need to take medication for high cholesterol." She agreed and we decided I should go off the medication for 3 months, then take another blood test. Depending on the results, I might need to go back on medication but, it´s possible I might not. She even did some calculations, using her phone, on my risks of heart problems years ago when my cholesterol was pretty high and the risks now.

April 2017
She is not my primary and I do not believe we had met before. She quickly gave me a feeling of listening carefully, making sure she communicated all relevant information and that she cared about my problem and wanted to hear if I did not progress the way that would be expected.

April 2017
Dr.Morrison is always a pleasure to work with in all areas.

April 2017
the main reason I continue with Virginia Mason even though it is slightly out of the way is Dr Morrison. she is not pushy on the least but shows she cares to ensure you are staying up to date on appointments. her caring and understanding helps me take better care of myself. she is amazing and I will continue to recommend VM because of her.

April 2017
Dr. Morrison is very professional, friendly, and kind.

Dr. Morrison is a wonderful family doctor! Especially for me and my daughter who came from out of country (Japan), she is very thoughtful and helpful. We are very happy and fortunate to have such a brilliant and very kind family doctor like Dr. Morrison!

January 2017
Dr. Morrison was during this appointment, and has always been during the years of care she has provided, an excellent and trustworthy doctor and care giver. Both my husband and I consider her top notch in her medical advice, concern and profession. We are very honored to be in her care at Virginia Mason.

January 2017
Dr. Morrison was very pleasant during this visit. But other times she has been curt. I have seen her for 18 years but was considering going to another provider, but she knows me. At times I have not sought medical help because I did not want to encounter her mood.

January 2017
Dr Morrison is an amazing physician. This visit was due to a female problem. I would feel so uncomfortable with another doctor, but she always makes me feel comfortable and listened to.

January 2017
Dr. Morrison IS THE BEST doctor I have ever seen in my entire life. I am super thankful she is my PCP and she is the reason I have never left Virgina Mason. I tell all of my friends about her and the excellent care I get from all of your doctors but her specifically and have referred many people to the Kirkland Clinic because of the great care I always receive. I feel like she always listens to what my concerns are and genuinely cares about my health and getting me to the best version of me. She truly is the most amazing doctor. I am so lucky she is my doctor. Never let her leave!!!! :)

January 2017
Dr. Morrison is a very caring doctor. She expressed her caring during my diagnosis and treatment for cancer. She spends time explaining and demonstrating things that relate to your concern.

January 2017
Dr. Morrison is always very thorough and respectful of any concerns I may have. If I have concerns about the treatment plan or tests, she listens to my concerns and adjusts accordingly. She explains things in detail because she knows I´m the type of person who wants a lot of information. I have complete confidence in her.

January 2017
There was a time when Dr. Morrison had, from time to time, a bad attitude. I am glad that she has resolved whatever issue it was. I was greatly impressed how kind she was when I told her some personally distressing news of a difficult event that had just occurred in my life.

January 2017
Dr. Morrison is my absolute favorite doctor of all time, and after working in healthcare and having a parent who was in healthcare for years, I have seen many. She is one that I fully trust with my entire family and we can´t imagine going to anyone else. She is someone who actually cares about getting to the root of the problem and will work with you and educate you throughout the entire process. I have extremely high standards for medical care and professionals, and she is by far one of the best I´ve ever seen. She is the epitome of what you envision your family doctor to be.

January 2017
Like I said in previous comments, Dr. Morrison is great. She has been there for me at my worst and at my best. I´m confident that I would not be here today if it were not for her willingness to care and her determination not to give up on me.

Dr. Morrison is, hands down, the best doctor who has ever treated me.

Dr. Morrison had researched my problem before meeting me and had suggestions for medication; then she followed up with a referral to a hand specialist and sent me exercises to do at home. She was patient and thorough with her suggestions. I was pleased!

October 2016
Love Dr. Morrison, she listens and takes time with me, answers all my questions patiently and NEVER makes me feel unintelligent about concerns or questions I have!

October 2016
Of the hour I was in the room the doctor was probably there less than 10 minutes but she did listen to me and work with my other doctors to make sure I was treated appropriately. I prefer to see doctors familiar with my history and medical conditions.

September 2016
Dr. Morrison is the reason I travel from Hood Canal to Virginia Mason in Kirkland. Not only is she an excellent doctor, she has common sense. It is always a good experience when I come over to Kirkland for an appointment.

September 2016
Like I stated earlier, Dr. Morrison IS the reason I have kept all my medical care at Virginia Mason. She is the BEST primary care doctor I´ve ever had and I am so thankful that she is my doctor. But even when she is not there, I am fully confident with the other PCP or PA´s I have seen when she is out of the office (Dr. Kaine & Chris Shaw, PA specifically are AMAZING as well).

I have always felt comfortable with Dr. Morrison. She is always ready to listen to what I have to say as far as what is going on in my personal life that could be affecting any physical problems I may be experiencing.

July 2016
I went it for what was scheduled to be a blood pressure check, and based on my concerns, she ordered an EKG and blood work during the same visit. I was very pleased to have those tests right then and there instead of having to wait two weeks until the physical I had also scheduled. Dr. Morrison spent a long time talking with me and did not rush me out.

Dr. Morrison was attentive, compassionate and offered helpful suggestions.

June 2016
Dr. Morrison has been my Doctor for more than +15 years. I have never been sick until this year in which she was amazing. I love Dr. Morrison a lot - she listens to me. I have an anxiety disorder and she has been amazing at helping me with this disease that seemed to show itself in February of this year - I was scared. She has been super supportive of the steps I am taking to get better and she talks to me like a real person. She will slide away from the computer and have an actual discussion with me - I bring notes and facts in order to help us with the conversation. I have made great progress. My liver numbers are normal, my breast biopsies came back negative, I passed a kidney stone, and my anxiety medicine at the lowest dose is working wonders -- more importantly.. all of the above conditions happened in the last 5 months and Dr. Morrison has been with me every step of the way. I can e-mail her and she actually responds instead of making countless appointments. Once she responded at 10:30pm and I thought that was a miracle.

June 2016
We could not ask for better care than we receive from Dr. Morrison.

June 2016
Good experience. Thank you for the fabulous care!

June 2016
I have had the best care of my life with Virginia Mason. Dr. Morrison is the best care provider ever.

Dr. Morrison is a great doctor. I trust her completely.

June 2016
have seen this care provider for 12+ years, but lately 1 visit she is very cold and next visit very caring, with next visit very cold, and changes every time. Not sure if I should change care provider. Last visit she was very caring.

May 2016
Dr. Morrison has gone above and beyond. She has remained in contact with me since the visit, and is providing me excellent care.

April 2016
I liked her confidence and the way I was able to talk to her.

April 2016
Dr. Morrison is the BEST doctor I have ever had. She is the first doctor I have ever felt comfortable enough to be totally honest with about my healthcare issues and it is why I selected her as my primary care doctor. No matter what I tell her, I never feel judged and I feel like she really cares about me and my health. She is amazing, kind and thoughtful. She really takes the time to listen to you and work with you to attain your healthcare goals.

April 2016
Clinical visits with Dr. Morrison are always collaborative and informative. In this case, she needed to review records going back several years to make an informed management decision, which she communicated clearly, and forwarded to the hematology provider I had seen in the past. (he approved her decision, as expected) Dr. Morrison is exceptional in her communication skills. She is able to integrate the EHR note during discussions, which is quite a feat- carrying on a conversation while documenting a note and maintaining visual/eye contact during a visit is a remarkable skill, and greatly contributes to the collaborative, interactive feeling of visits. VM clearly hires some of the very best providers, and Dr. Morrison is one of the superbly best.

March 2016

I have been helped by this provider only once, so my answers are based on first impression, which was very good.

February 2016
Dr. Morrison is a phenomenal doctor who wants the best for her patients! She is helpful and supportive, listens and does not judge but helps to problem in reaching goals set.

January 2016
Recommended to my spouse--and she likes going to her (Dr Morrison).

December 2015
At times, I feel uneasy in asking Dr morrison questions about my health concerns as she seems frustrated when I do my own research of my symptoms and ask detailed questions about it.I don´t always feel comfortable with the conversation but I still ask my questions anyway.

November 2015
Dr. Morrison is, by her nature, a very friendly and caring person. She remembers who you are as a patient and takes the time to find out why you are there; In my case I was there for my shot but had a flare up of arthritis in my knee, and addresses the main concern immediately. I have complete trust in any decision Dr. Morrison comes to.

November 2015
Dr. Morrison is a doctor I trust and will continue to see. I would also recommend her to others.

Dr. Morrison is amazing. She gets back to me in timely fashion with any questions or concerns that I may have.

November 2015
Dr. Morrison has been a trusted and compassionate care giver for me for many years. My husband now also goes to her for his medical needs. We are both very blessed to have her as our doctor to depend on for medical care. We are grateful for her knowledge, concern about our health, and capability as a doctor.

November 2015
I would like to thank Dr. Morrison for being such a great Doctor (and all VM staff.) I really appreciate the care and concern she has for me, as well as the fact that she never seems critical or judgmental regarding my smoking and many failed attempts at quitting. Even though I have cut back hugely, it is not enough. I know she is now concerned about the possibility of Emphysema or other respiratory issues. I want to stress how much I appreciate her being a partner in my health care. Her referral to Dr. Dick, and her referral to Dr. Kagayama for my Moh´s surgery was spot on. Excellent care all around.

November 2015
I recommend Dr. Laurel Morrison to people all the time. She is the best doctor ever!!!

November 2015
Great doctor - only reason we stay with your clinic.

September 2015
