Dr Morrison always listens and answers the questions I have asked. Navigation through this aging process is always new, challenging and often times so much less than fun. It is wonderful to know that someone is there to help you, give you guidelines and answer questions with clarity and concern.
July 2018
We could not ask for a better, more concerned and conscientious, doctor than Dr. Morrison.

June 2018
Dr. Laurel Morrison has been my care provider for over 20 years, and she has always been a fabulous physician who treats her patients well and provides information in a clear and concise manner. She is truly a gem and Virginia Mason is lucky to have her. Dr. Vorenkamp at the downtown facility is also one of the best physicians I have ever known. He treats his patients exceptionally well, and provides the information a patient needs to know about procedures and how it will help them.
June 2018
I love Dr. Morrison and her staff. She never keeps me waiting. She´s compassionate, very knowledgeable and my human chill pill. I don´t know what else to say but more and compliments. Thank you all so much!

June 2018
I would recommend Dr. Morrison to anyone (and have). I have a horrible fear of Doctors in general, but 2 minutes with her puts me at ease. At the end of the day, i always go to my annual checkups because of her, as well as the frictionless process in the clinic.

Dr. Morrison is an excellent listener and communicator. She took the time to make sure I understood everything and her email follow-up was timely and thorough.
January 2018
Dr. Morrison IS the reason that I have stayed with Virigina Mason for so long. I used to work at Swedish medical center & Providence Medical center and refused to switch because of her. She has been my PCP for over 15 years and is the only doctor I have ever had that I felt comfortable enough to be 100% honest with. I know I can tell her anything and she won´t judge she will just try to provide the best care. and she genuinely cares about her patients. love her!!!!
January 2018
In my opinion, Dr. Morrison is the best doctor Virginia Mason has to offer its patients! She is top notch!! She knows her patients, she spends time with them and is very responsive to any questions or concerns you may have.
January 2018
Dr Morrison is thorough, understanding, relates well to your concerns and provides a comfortable dialogue for questions and discussion. would highly recommend her.
January 2018
I´ve been with Dr. Morrison for many years, and we have a pretty good rapport. Nonetheless, it´s almost impossible for her to give me enough information in the time we have. For example, she prescribed the NSAID, meloxicam, and basically said it was like ibuprofen, but that one pill a day is all I´d need. I would have liked to know whether it needs to be taken consistently or on an as-needed basis, whether I would come to rely on it (I know it´s not addictive), whether I could start on a lower dosage, etc. We covered several topics of my health, and by necessity, she had to skim the surface on all of them.
January 2018
Dr. Morrison is consistent and excellent in caring for my medical needs.
December 2017
Dr. Morrison is amazing.
December 2017
Dr. Morrison is fabulous - I always feel like she truly listens to me.
December 2017
Dr. Morrison is AMAZING... she spends time with me when I need it, really cares about my problems, wants to talk through potential solutions with me, and understands that some of my physical problems are connected to emotional issues too. She also doesn´t make snap decisions about big ticket items (like starting a new weight loss medication), but wanted me to read through some materials and come back and talk with her about it again before proceeding.
December 2017
I really like that there is a scriber now!! It freed up my time with Dr Morrison to talk about diet.
November 2017
I was in for my yearly physical & everything was taken care of.
November 2017
Dr. Laurel Morrison sets the standard of excellence, professionalism, skill, and dedication to her patient in the field of medicine. She has been my primary care physician for over ten years. She is by far the best primary care/internal medicine physician I have encountered anywhere in over 40 years. Following every clinic visit or correspondence with Dr. Morrison, I find myself thanking my good fortune for having her as the physician watching over my (and my wife´s) health care needs. She has helped me and my family through numerous - some times deadly serious - health issues. Dr. Morrison is simply outstanding.
November 2017
Dr. Morrison is wonderful. Asks a lot of questions and listens well. I always feel well cared for here.
November 2017

Dr. Morrison is an amazing doctor and makes my daughter feel at ease whenever we go in. She is the primary reason we stay with Virginia Mason.
October 2017
Dr. Morrison took me step by step through everything and talked to me to keep my nerves down
September 2017
Dr. Morrison IS the reason I stay with Virginia Mason. I used to work at Swedish and Providence and never switched because she is an amazing doctor! She has been my PCP for a very long time and is the first one I have ever had that has made me feel totally comfortable to tell her everything and not feel like I was being judged. She is very patient and listens to my concerns and then we work on a care plan together. She is like a good friend that cares about my health and I am always amazed by the details she remembers about things I have told her in the past about my personal life that she will bring up to point out something related to my care. She sees a lot of patients a day, so the fact that she remembers random facts I forgot I mentioned to her in passing is impressive and makes me feel like she truly cares about me and my health and has my best interest at heart. She´s a truly amazing doctor - the absolute best I have ever had and I am super thankful she is my PCP.

August 2017
Dr. Morrison is absolutely amazing, she treats our entire family and I´m so thankful to have her as a care provider. I can always trust her to include me in my health decisions and to explain things to me in a way that I can understand. She´s honestly the best doctor I´ve ever had in my life.
August 2017
Have only had to go to the doctor for annual check ups. The doc always is right in tune with me not like it is the first time to see me. This last time it had been two years since we had seen each other.
August 2017
I always appreciate the thoroughness of Dr. Morrison exams. I feel very confident in her abilities. She listens, analyzes then proposes treatment. I also appreciate that she doesn´t wear fragrances that I can detect. I am highly sensitive to fragrances (colognes, hair products, etc.) with unpleasant physical effects from them.
August 2017
Listened to my thoughts and together we made a good plan.
August 2017
I´ve been a patient at Virginia Mason since 1985. No matter who on my medical team is assisting me, I´ve always felt I am in the best of hands and cared for. Dr. Morrison is a quality care giver and always share up to date research and explains clearly.

Dr. Morrison has the ideal combination of knowledge/skills, care/concern for patients, sense of humor, lack of judgment, accessibility, and willingness to search for ideas/be creative/refer out/etc.
July 2017
Dr. Morrison was great- very easy totally to. As a nurse, I wiould recommend her to my patients looking for a primary care physician.

I love Dr. Morrison-she has always been so great and patient!
June 2017
My last doctor always berated me about my weight with comments like "are you trying to get to 200 pounds" so much so that I dreaded going to the doctor. I was interested to see if the reverse would happen. Dr. Morrison noticed my weight loss and even sent me a quick email about it which I really appreciated.
June 2017

June 2017
Our family has been coming to Virginia Mason for about 15 years. Laurel Morrison is an excellent doctor. In addition to being bright, but she has an excellent bedside manner. She´s like an old friend that you don´t see often, but when you see them, you pick right up where you left off. Never an awkward moment. She´s so easy to talk to.
June 2017

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.

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
Dr. Morrison didn´t order the test for Epstein-Barr despite me going into detail about how tired I was. She should have - it came back positive when I had it tested elsewhere.
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!

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.

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

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 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 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.
January 2017
Dr. Morrison always shows great care & concern for me & my problems. I never feel rushed. Excellent provider!
