The PA & Physical Therapist were great with my son.UofU Patient April 19, 2014
Dr. Morris does a good job, that's why he makes the big bucks . I have faith in his abilities. He also prescribed pain management at the U, in addition to what I've already gone through. The workman comp nurse thought it would be redundant, but Dr. Morris said we should explore all the possibilities so that I might lead a more pain free life . I felt like he was concerned about my condition.UofU Patient January 03, 2014
