Biography
Dr. Robert Morse believes that a physician should be not only a provider of care, but also a teacher. “Your cardiovascular health is a collaborative effort,” he says. “I’ve found that an educated patient will generally do better.”

In his practice, Dr. Morse emphasizes preventive care. “Prevention is the best treatment,” he says. He gives all of his patients as much time as needed at each appointment to ensure they get the quality of care they deserve.

Dr. Morse earned his Doctor of Osteopathy degree from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, Maine. He completed his internship and residency at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, and a fellowship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Morse is married and has two children. He enjoys sports, outdoor activities and learning about military history.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I like the proactive attitude of Dr. Morse. He has provided many suggestions (that I try to follow) to stay healthy so I do not need to see him on an emergency basis.

The doctor and his staff were very good about answering my questions. I was seen by a nurse to take my vitals. Then the doctor came in ad we discussed how I was doing. He then examined me for the reason I was there...my heart disease. He wanted to take a blood specimen and when he left the room the technician came in to get blood sample. I have seen him every time I see Dr. Morse and we chat about various things. Everyone connected with my appointment was caring and helpful.

His limited availability (and lack of other cardiologists in the practice) made getting a timely appointment difficult.

The office is convenient, the staff competent and helpful and even when two last minute adjustments were necessary in the Stress Test I needed, they were handled in stride and without confusion or frustration. I found this helpful.
