16/07/13 3 1 1 2 I've seen this condescending man twice. He's rude, builds your hopes up then crushes them, and all around needs a good slap upside the head! I went to him because I have had pain in mt DOMINATE hand for 5+ years, and my family Dr finally decided to do something for me. Well firstly I waited over an hour to see him (and not even him at first, it was his Fellow!). He moves my hand around a bit to see if I would react to the pain I was in, but I didn't I had a headache that was distracting me from anything else. So he said "Oh well it is LIKELY just tendinitis and all you need to do is ice is and take anti-inflammatories for the pain" I looked at him like the idiot he is, and told him that I'd done that, and over the past 5 years it DIDN'T work. He then asked me what irritated my injury, when I said it was my job, he asked me if I wanted to give it up, and I told him no cause I had bills to pay! He didn't even seem to care about that! Never, and I mean EVER am I going back!!  Respond

21/06/13 5 3 5 5 Pleasant friendly knowledgeable Doctor. I did wait each time a while pre and post op but he was professional, compassionate and the results (I am now six months post surgery) are pretty much exactly as he described would be the case. He perhaps could be considered curt, but I saw it as appropriate considering his case load  Respond

16/06/13 5 5 5 5 Prior to my breast reduction/lift surgery, I decided to educate myself a bit on the procedure and talked to several of my friends who are doctors. I discovered a general consensus that Dr. Morris was admired as a gifted plastic surgeon. Doctors described him as a perfectionist... just the word I wanted to hear. One doctor clapped with glee and lectured me on my luck. As a lawyer, these reverent descriptions of his talent by his peers eased my surgical fears. Comments regarding how he makes his patient feel are subjective and irrelevant. I want a surgeon not a shrink. Dr. Morris was pleasant, informative and reassuring. While discussing my surgical expectations, I was impressed by his kindness, compassion and genuine desire to ensure patient satisfaction. When I first saw my new breasts, I gazed in awe at my stunning transformation. The results are spectacular. Breathtaking. The goddess Aphrodite must envy me. Dr. Morris is a creative surgical genius. I look like a movie star!  Respond

07/09/12 4 1 1 2 I found Dr Morris rude and unprofessional. I waited for 3 hours in his waiting room to see him for 5 minutes. He told me that "A lot of people have it a lot worse" and they don't do anything for them either... (did I mention I had cancer?!?!?) this doesn't it right for me or for them. I have now been referred to another surgeon, outside of Halifax. I'd rather drive a longer distance than deal with Dr Morris.  Respond

12/07/12 3 5 5 5 I have just read through the comments, and can only assume that those who are voicing negative comments must have been looking for miracles and he honestly told them what the real expectations would be. I am not at my optimum weight & he was very kind in explaining why weight should be at an optimum, for my own health among other things. As for waiting time? he has always been punctual and never made me feel rushed and in fact made me feel very comfortable with contacting him at anytime if I had any questions. I echo the sentiments that we are extremely fortunate to have a surgeon of his quality and experience remaining here in Halifax. Especially in light of the additional work and stress that he was left with when former colleagues of his did up and leave for more financially lucrative areas of the globe.  Respond

11/11/11 3 5 5 5 Excellent Dr., Fabulous bedside manner, and his work was excellent. I would, and have, recommend him to a close friend for any work they need done. He was always very helpful to me and I did go back for a second consult though decided against the second surgery, he gave me every consideration and was supportive throughout the process.

08/11/11 3 1 1 1 After almost two hours of waiting, Dr. Morris rushed me through my appointment, answering my questions with rudeness and abruptness. He did not have my file with him and refused to call to get it because "it would take too long" and he was already behind. He recommended a treatment I repeatedly told him previously hadn't worked (that's why I was there) but prescribed it anyway. I was shocked at how rude, impersonal, arrogant, and quite simply a jerk Dr. Morris is.  Respond

17/03/11 5 3 4 5 Amazing!!! He has never been rude to me in any of my visits, I am not sure why people would say he is rude. Talking to Dr. Morris is like talking to your neighbor. That being said if you are looking for someone to hold your hand he is not the one, but he is always friendly and easy to talk to.  Respond

22/08/10 5 5 5 5 Excellent doctor!!!Loved his thoroughness, felt very comfortable talking to him about my imperfection. I felt like I was talking to my best friend and not once did I feel stupid or rushed in my questions. The procedure was described in detail to me and the results were exactly what I was looking for. I am still recovering and would highly recommend this nice doctor.  Respond

19/10/09 5 2 5 5 His level of knowledge and experience is bar none. I have been told he is a perfectionist and accepts nothing but the best. Based on his amazing work I believe it! One of his shining traits is his friendly and caring personality. From my very first consultation he made me feel like I had known him for years. He answered every question I had, no matter how silly it may have seemed, and told me if I had any questions or concerns to just call him any time. After my surgery he personally called my husband to let him know how I was doing, rather than leave it someone else. At every check up I have had, he has been super friendly, caring and willing to talk through eveyrthing with me. He is AMAZING!!!  Respond

02/03/08 5 4 5 5 I would highly recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. We are very fortunate to have such a highly skilled plastic surgeon in this province. I am very happy with the results of my surgery which demonstrates the work of a perfectionist. I always found Dr. Morris to be willing to answer any questions and explain what procedure he was performing. Any time my appointment ran late it was due to unexpected emergencies which Dr. Morris had to attend.  Respond

19/02/08 5 5 5 5 I could never thank Dr. Morris enough for the AMAZING work he did on me! I love the man!! I would recommend him to anyone for plastic surgery or even hand surgery, because I’ve had both done by him and he was fantastic!!! I wish every doctor-surgeon-specialist were like him!!!!  Respond

19/02/08 4 4 5 5 Dr.Morris, is the best specialist I have ever met.He was helpful, knowledgeable, and very kind. I certainly found no fault with this courteous and intelligent surgeon. Dr. Morris is a very skilled doctor, and is worth his weight in gold. I only wish other specialists and doctors would emulate his manner and expertise. I do recommend him to anyone who needs reconstructive and/or plastic surgery.  Respond

10/10/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Morris performed a number of cosmetic procedures on me which included a face lift and upper eyelids, etc. He is an excellent conscientious surgeon who more than fulfilled my expectations and I would highly recommend him! I have never found Dr. Morris to be rude, bad tempered or impatient, quite the contrary. I felt very comfortable with him and thoroughly enjoyed his wit and dry sense of humour. When reading some of the comments made by others, I noticed that at least one complaint was that the individual was kept waiting for some time. I have always found Dr. Morris to be on time when I've had an appointment; however, should there have been a time when I was kept waiting, I would have fully understood. As I mentioned earlier, he is an excellent surgeon in high demand and I imagine, like many other surgeons, there are emergencies and unforseen circumstances over which he has no control.  Respond

13/09/07 4 4 5 5 I had a traumatic injury to one hand(among other injuries) almost 2 years ago. Since that time I have seen Dr. Morris many times and he has performed 3 surgeries with at least one more to go. I owe the use of my hand to Dr. Morris. I truly believe that if another surgeon had been on call when I was brought into the ER that my outcome would have been the loss of my hand. He is definitely abrupt and has no time for you if you do not take your recovery into your own hands - as it should be. He pushed me very hard during my recovery but it was all well intended and the result is that I have two hands. I definitely recommend him to anybody who is motivated and wants to revover. I sometimes have to wait for him during my check-ups but I just think about the day that I was in the ER needing him - he arrived immediately and maybe left patients waiting in his office. I am grateful for that and never mind waiting.  Respond

11/09/07 4 4 2 2 i was to see Dr Morris about a broken bone that i was told needed surgery. he looked quickly at it the injury, said it was fine and put the cast back on. When the time came to have the cast removed i come to find that the bone did not heal properly, and was still in pain. Dr. Morris's response, "oh that's fine". He was rude and arrogant both times i saw him, and from what i'v read of his other ratings he may be more compassionate to a more serious injury, but does not give a damn about the smaller ones. Best way to describe this Dr. understimulated and over paid. Very unsatisfied  Respond

12/03/07 4 5 5 Dr. Morris is a very skilled reconstructive surgeon. I found him to be pleasant, considerate and very thorough.

28/02/07 3 1 1 Very dissatisfied with cosmetic results. I found the entire experience very frustrating, and a lasting testament that complacency is unacceptable and that practicing surgeons must be accountable to patients that receive care. Needless to say, I would not recommend this surgeon for breast augmentation. Having said this, I did not find him to be thorough during consultations nor helpful in dealing with tough situations. In addition, Dr. Morris lacks diplomacy in communication and needs to establish listening skills that are critical to connecting with people. Moreover, Dr. Morris at his discretion disregarded manufacturer’s filling specifications (based on extensive testing and studies) for breast implants and precipitated adverse events (ie. premature implant failure/deflation, removal/replacement of both implants). Check your catalogue numbers to ensure that your prosthesis is not filled above or below manufacturer’s filling specifications as you too could be at risk.  Respond

20/02/07 2 5 5 I found Dr. Morris to be the best hand Doctor in Nova Scotia. I found him to be caring and considerate and above all very knowledgeable. I have dealt with him on three occasions and he fully explained what he was going to do and how he would do it and what my recovery time would be. He was correct in every aspect. I have all the confidence in him as a Doctor and would recommend him to any one. Definitely DID NOT find him rude , arrogant or inconsiderate.  Respond

08/02/07 3 5 5 On each occasion that I have visited this doctor it has been at the QE II and I have had some delays simply because of the number of people scheduled in to see him during a clinic. Despite these delays I was very impressed with his knowledge and willingness to listen to my concerns. I went in fully prepared and knowledgeable about potential options in the removal of a malignant melanoma. When I asked for him to consider different approaches to the necessary surgery he was quite attentive and fully engaged with me in discussion over procedure. As it turned out he accepted my thoughts and reasoning, not to suggest for a second he hadn't already figured this out on his own. I was and continue to be very happy with the results of the surgery and his willingness to discuss with me, matter of factly, any follow on treatment. I certainly appreciate his knowledge and willingness to consider all options and he did not take lightly my condition nor belittle my participation. A great outcome.  Respond

14/01/07 1 1 1 rude and made me feel that he was too important to spend time seeing people who weren't paying cash. i reluctantly went to see him anyway because although he tells people he is a good surgeon, my friend had a cosmetic procedure with him that ended up being a disaster.  Respond

28/12/06 2 1 4 I am a burn victim and have undergone countless procedures throughout my lifetime. I still require some reconstruction and release of contractures. The contractures are painful and the most severe are those on my abdomen. I have been to see Dr. Morris on three separate appointments since May 2006, at which time he advised I would be booked for surgery and should be in by fall 2006, fall appointment he explained the procedure he would be doing to release the contractures, an inverted tummy tuck, which seems extreme to me but he is the doctor, third fall appointment he went over the procedure again and when asked what time frame it would be before getting in he said about a year so I questioned the prior conversations and he commented that he had three women in that same day who were paying $6000 for tummy tucks and I was "getting it free" so what was I complaining about...hmmm, wasn't looking for a tummy tuck...what's that about!!  Respond

11/12/06 3 4 5 Dr Morris is an excellent surgeon, but his bedside manner could improve. Good at explaining procedures but very blunt almost to the point of rudeness.I would not hesitate in going to him again in the futre just becaues he is a really good plastic surgeon. It took me a while to get used to his attitude, but the results of his surgery were good enough that I was able to put his bedside manner aside. Would highly reccomend him.
