Ratings for Dr. Martha L. Morgan
i wish there was a button that just rated dr. morgan but there isnt.. i was 19 when i got pregnant. was under 100 lbs when i first went to her when i was 6 weeks pregnant. within 4 months i lost 13 lbs. due to morning sickness. had to quit my job bc i was constantly leaving my station to throw up. she never would give me medicine! said i would grow out of it. finally when i realized she would be the reason for my loosing my baby i switched doctors. the new doctor (dr. todd drexel) put me on zofran and gained all my weight back then some! would not recommend dr. morgan to my worse enemy! she does not know what she is doing! terrible manners! went in her office one time with a yoohoo chocolate drink and she told me i was guna hurt the baby! but i guess she didnt think being about 85 lbs would! do not go to her if ur pregnant!!!
I had Dr Morgan for my first pregnancy back in '08. Dr. Morgan was very hard on me about my weight gain. When I had gained 30 lbs she told me I couldn't gain any more and the baby could survive off of my fat, that gaining so much weight I would autimatically need a C-Section. After 14 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing I needed a C Section because of my daughter's position. I asked for a moment being upset about the CS and she told me I needed to be thankful for CSections because 100 years ago she would tell my husband to find a new wife because both me and baby would die...A great thing to say to a mother in labor.
Dr. Morgan was referred to me by a friend. My friend ended up apoligizing for referring her to me. Dr. Morgan may be blunt and so am I. This being said she is not just blunt she is totally unprofessional and acts like is is a crime to ask questions. When you do finally get an answer she tries to make you feel stupid. She is Not a good Dr at all.
Dr. Martha Morgan is hot and cold when it comes to her bedside manner. She has always been nice to me, only short when it comes to answers. I have never really felt comfortable talking to her.My main complaint for her office if the receptionist, Stephanie. She is the rudest person I've ever dealt with in my life, and because of the way she treated me, I requested that my personal records be given to me so that I never have to go back to that office. I wanted, and still want, to have nothing to do with Dr. Morgan's office. Because of her receptionist Stephanie, Dr. Morgan lost a patient she's had for over 7 years.
They are quick efficient and knowledgable. Dr. Morgan tends to stick to the facts and is very honest. Some people may not like her straight to the point demenor. But I would rather have someone who cuts out the B.S. and gets to the point. I have been going to her for four years now. I love her, great doctor. She is very quick too!
I took my teenage daughter to her for her first checkup with a gyn. She took us into the office, spoke to my daughter patiently while explaining why she was asking questions. She put my daughter at ease. My daughter chose to continue using Dr Morgan as a gyn.
HORRIBLE bedside manner. I saw her because she was the only physician in town who would see me because I was under 15 (this was 6 years ago) and I never liked going to her because she made me feel uncomfortable. I was recently in the hospital and she happened to be the on call physician. She violated my privacy rights and tried to make me feel guilty because she missed Sunday school because the hospital paged her. If you're going to be on call, you shouldn't blame the patient when you have to work and all physicians should have a little knowledge of HIPPAA regulations.
This doctor in my opinion is an o.k. doctor but in my opinion has an awful bedside manner. I felt awful almost every single time I left her office. On more than one occasion she made me cry after seeing her. I have heard from others that she made them feel this way too.. whether or not that is true I don't know, but in my case it is very true. I obviously did not go back to her when I got pregnant again and will never go back to her office. The nursing staff for her was wonderful and if I could have only seen them I would have had no problems with her office. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The other doctor in her practice the one time I saw her was also very nice and I would have went to her again, but I will not go to anyone associated with Dr. Morgan. In my opinion she seriously needs to take a class in bedside manner.
