Ratings for Dr. Anthony Morrison
I was seen very fast at his office in Tampa General. The staff was very nice, with positive energy. Dr. Morrison is a much older man, and his beliefs and knowledge reflect old school medicine and mentality -- especially when it comes to women. I walked in with a TSH of 5.0 labs, weight gain, depression, hair loss, high cholesterol. etc. etc. and a history of hypothyroid in my family. He did not agree to treat my symptoms and instead asked for me to have my labs done at his office (the ones I brought him were only 2 months old) so I agreed. I realized later this was probably his tactic to get rid of me since he declined to provide me with thyroid medication. His words exactly were "the thyroid medication is not good for you" and "there was a study done where women with symptoms like yours were given a placebo and they miracously felt better and their thyroid symptoms were gone" The result? I waited 6 months to get an appointment with Dr. Morrison and couldn't find any informative reviews that gave me the knowledge that would have needed to not waste my time with him. Now, I will continue to suffer from debilitating symptoms that are ruining my life! In Dr. Morrison's old school mind, it is better for us women to suffer from these symptoms than to take a thyroid medicine that "is not good for us".. Even at the lowest dose. He is ruining the lives of women, if you do decide to wait forever to get your appoitnment, be ready to be sent home without any treatment or solutions except "go back to your PCP"... I truly felt like he was not thinking rationally or intellectually, but instead either exerting some form of control over his female patients by not allowing them to be treated with thyroid medication; or he is for some reason only acting in his own best interest and hidden agenda. Sorry I have ot say this, but it is my opinion and boy do I wish I would have read a review like this 6 months ago so I would not have wasted my time.
The wait time to get an appointment with him is long. There is a reason for that. He is good. He is always very thorough and spends time going over my records and latests lab results. Don't mistake him being methodical and being short with not caring. If you just want kind words and warm conversation, go somewhere else. If you want a great professional who has your health as his top priority, then this is your man. I always walk away from his office with a good action plan and a better understanding of my illness.
Dr. Morrison's office is extremely difficult to get in touch with. He has no bedside manner. He was extremely rude. He cuts you off when you speak with him. He was 4 hours behind one day at his office. He has no real answers to my questions. I dont know if he is a good doctor because he doesnt explain himself. Overall, he has crappy personality and I would never suggest for anyone I know to go to him.
I went to see Doctor Morrison after seeing a pediatric doctor for 7 years. He asked me when I thought I should come back to see him, he cut me off in the middle of sentences, he was rude and basically called my mom fat. I will NEVER EVER recommend him to anyone EVER!
I have been a patient of Dr. Morrison for almost 10 years now. He is an excellent doctor. He started me on the insulin pump 7 years ago which dramatically improved my diabetes control. Dr. Morrison can always be reached and if you leave a message he will call you back in no time.
Not only is there a 10 month wait for an appointment, Dr. Morrison will only give you test results if you call him between 7:30 and 7:45am on a Friday!?!? Because of this long appointment wait, I was unable to see him but needed a script refilled for a med I have to take every day for the rest of my life. He refused to fill the script, told me there were no appointments and then told me to "go to the Health Dept". And forget about getting your records sent from USF to any new doctors, they are the most incompetent set of staff I have ever encountered.
