Dr. Morse said we waisted his time...My husband has alzheimers I reminded the person who set the appointment, but said Dr. wanted to see him anyway. Many Dr's and nursing staff have seen [...] in the last one has ever been RUDE to us before, we can not help what we have , we do the best we can SORRY to have waisted his time

I was asked to wait in the office to have blood taken on a previous visit. After about 40 minutes of waiting, I left, realizing the person to have been doing the blood draw had left for lunch. No one bothered to tell me.

Very professional & likeable.

he now has a nurse practitioner, since Dr Morse is a cardiologist I am very disturbed about this development and may stop going to him. when I, or my insurance company pay for a specialist for a condition, I thnk I should see a specialist. this NP doesn't have 20 years of listening to people's heart, or had all the training that a cardiologist has. I voic d this concern and it was heard, but since I am not in crisis I can see the NP. if that's the case why make an appointment and see a non cardiologist rookie? I think my family doc will suffice.

my MP [...] was courteous and very kind. Ske gave me time and explained everything with utmost care and I like her very much. She is an excellent provider. Her professional knowledge is admirable. 11 out 10 to [...]. I felt in good and extremely kind and professionel company.

never have had any remotely bad experiences...

No problems

Dr morose is a great Dr.& always there for me, he's patient & always listens to my concerns! thank you

All positive -

Dr. Morse is a little hard to get to know. I believe he's a little shy, and he plays it close to the vest. HOWEVER, he is very thorough, knowledgeable and spot-on as he listens to my concerns and responds thoughtfully. I do wish he'd loosen up just a little, but since that is my ONLY "concern," I'm extremely satisfied with the quality of my care. I give Dr. Morse two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Dr Morse completely regulated my blood pressure in less than a week with the medicines he prescribed.

Dr. Morse appeared to have formed an opinion of me from my records from Dr. [...] and did not give me a chance to explain my side of the visit. He was arrogant and not someone I want to treat me in the future. I want a doctor that I respect and trust and he did not give me this.

I love the Providence system. You have amazing office people and wonderful practitioners. I have to see the ACC clinic OFTEN, and all of the pharmacists are friendly, helpful, and go the extra mile in being aware of the meds I'm on, their interactions, my allergies, and every facet of my med management.

Accessible, respectful, responsive.

Doctor Morse and his staff are personable and very considerate professionals!

Dr. Morse is my heart doctor. I see him annually for a heart checkup. I have called about heart issues in the past. I have always gotten immediate help and followup. Excellent care.

when I asked to have instructions or suggestions repeated, Dr Morse was very oatient and understanding. he displayed a very high amount of empathy for my fears. when I've used secured email to ask additional questions, I've received same day answers and a definite compassion for my confusion. I am well-pleased with the care I get at the heart clinic, from Dr. Morse, Nurse [...], and [...] at the front desk. top marks to them all.

Everything OK.

My primary provider sent me to Dr. Morse for a second opinion about my afib. I was very satisfied with how the Dr. addressed, evaluated, and treated my condition. The rest of the staff was very pleasant to deal with and answered any questions I had.

always good experience

Excellent physician. Ably handled a problem well out of his field last year.

When I have had trouble with other medical professionals I can always rely on Doc Morris to take care of ME and what is in MY best interest, he and his staff have helped me find other specialists who are just as fantastic as they are to work with, Love Providence and their staff from Seaside and Astoria to Beaverton ... the staff and medical professionals are a cut above ...

Having been a caregiver for many years, I know how patients should be treated. Having said that, I was very pleased with the care I received when I'm in this office.

No problems what so ever on office or personnel.

Excellent experiences...I trust these folks, appreciate the care, concern thanks!
