    When I went to see Dr. Morrison I found out I had glaucoma. But after going to him, I wasn't as terrified. He calmed me down. He made me feel at ease. I knew he was a good doctor and my (INAUDIBLE) on both my eyes was 10:10 yesterday, or the day before and I did everything he asked and whatever he did it worked and so I would really highly recommend Dr. Morrison. He was fantastic. He put my ... I came all the way from Salem to go see him and I had gone to about 5/6 other doctors, but they didn't do like he did. He's great.

    It is my understanding that Dr. Morrison is retiring soon. And he seems to have a heavy patient load. I got the impression that this whole situation is kind of making me nervous. I had to wait like 45 minutes in the exam room. It's for him besides waiting out in the outer areas to get in. It's just it was an unpleasant experience.
