From the moment I walked into the surgery center I was greeted, with a friendly smile, offered water or coffee and a comfortable seat. I only had to wait a few minutes to be asked to come to go in the testing area by an assistant. She was wonderful! Then I was shown a room to be greeted by the Dr. And his assistant in just a few minutes! I immediately felt at ease and both were very professional and explained the options and surgery procedure. We scheduled the surgery and again when I came to the surgery center, everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and made me comfortable when they dialated my eye and shortly brought me to the surgery area The Dr. came in very soon, performed the surgery, which was painless. When my eye was no longer dilated, I was amazed at how my vision was so much clearer! I would go back there for any eye surgery I needed!!

Dr. Morton is a very kind and caring doctor who went over the top to take care of our son's eye issues. He is very professional and yet makes you feel calm when there are serious issues going on. I wish there were more rating stars to click because I would click all of them and Dr. Morton would deserve them all!!

My son’s specialist in Iowa City referred him to Dr. Morton as a local resource for follow up after eye surgery. Dr. Morton was eager to step in and provide care. We had an emergency situation a few weeks later that Dr. Morton went above and beyond to provide the highest level of care we could have imagined. We are so grateful for access to a doctor of his caliber locally! Not only is he a brilliant and accomplished doctor, he’s also incredibly kind and personable.
