I am an RN and you don´t find doctors like Dr Morris very often anymore. In the past he has taken care of my daughter and husband and now me. He is empathetic, kind, knowledgable and truly has made us feel like family. I find it humbling that the top orthopedic surgeon for the Seattle Sounders will take the time to treat me as if I am just as important as one of their players. Knee surgery is never fun but to trust your surgeon implicitly, as they say... priceless!
