There is hope!
"I came to see Dr. Morris at the end of September 2014 for pain in my lower back that radiate down my right leg. After a thorough two hour explanation of my condition followed by a detailed examination Dr. Morris determined that I am a good candidate for his spinal stenosis program. I've had 6 weeks of treatment and already my pain level is down from 8 to 2. I do my exercises daily and will continue to see Dr. Morris till I am completely well. He has an excellent staff. "

Pain reduced from 10 to 5 in 5 months "I became a patient of Dr. Morris and his staff and program in January of 2014 with sciatic pain literally in the butt of a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. By May of 2014, the pain was down to a 3. Thanks to Dr. Morris, his staff and program, I am functioning again, both from the neck up and from the neck down. I am continuing the program to keep it that way. "

"Such a knowledgeable team, and extremely considerate. I feel so lucky to have found Dr Morris and his staff! He was able to figure out what was wrong with me from one assessment and a quick X-ray, which he performed at his practice."

Miracle Workers!
"I can't say enough good things about the Morris Center. Dr. Morris and his staff are EXTRAORDINARY. They have practically performed miracles, taking me from complete immobility to walking and being able to exercise again. I was able to avoid costly and invasive surgery due to the treatments from such a kind, knowledgable and compassionate staff. Dr. Morris is second to none and really knows what he's talking about. He's been disabled himself and knows what it's like to be in chronic pain. "

It was a fortunate find for me.
"At 86 years old I was looking for an alternative to surgery for a #10 pain sciatic problem after the epidural injections no longer were an option.. I started with Dr. Morris in Jan. 2014 and the pain was down to a #3 in May and has stayed down ever since."

Extraordinary Treatment
"Dr. Morris is an amazing and caring Doctor. I had severe neck pain, but after my first visit I left the office feeling confident, that I had come to the right treatment center. After six months I feel 95% better. I rate Dr. Morris and his staff a perfect 10. ."

Not JUST A chiropractor
"I have been seeing Dr. Morris for 10 years now. Prior to meeting him, I had accepted that my pain and limping for 2 years will just be a part of being a senior. Thereafter, I had several other ailments from twisted ribs, to my heel being so painful walking was excruciating to twisted ribs. Dr. Rick have saved my insurance thousands of dollars eliminating the need for costly drugs and surgery. I have since relied on his advise and extensive up-to-date knowledge in the medical field. "

The Program returned a substantial part of my life
"In January of 2013, the excruciating sciatic nerve pain in the left buttock began. Epidural injections helped for about 10 or 11 months and then began to become less effective. The pain doctor stated that the next step was major surgery with only a 50% chance of success. I commenced to search for alternatives. I started the program at Morris Spinal Stenosis and Disc Center in January of 2014 and went down from a disabling 10 pain to a 3 in 5 months. Thank you, Dr. Morris."

My First Appointment
"I just had my first appointment with Dr. Morris and I found him to be very informative. He spent a lot of time with me and did a very complete examination. I am looking forward to my next appointment when I will find out if there are any easy solutions to my back problem. I already spend a lot of time exercising and I am anxious to find out if I am doing the right things or not. I think that Dr. Morris is the perfect person to direct me and a knowledgeable and fun person to talk to."

Why, when, where and how it helped me and the pain I suffered
"The pain doctors and the orthopedic surgeons told me: "Stan, we've gone as far as we can with the epidural injections to relieve the sciatic nerve pain in your buttock . The only alternative remaining is major surgery with only a 50% chance of success.' At age 86, I did not like the concept of major surgery or the odds of success. In January I commenced the program at Dr. Morris when I had a pain of 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. By May, my pain was down to 3. Thank you Dr. Morris and staff"

Upbeat welcome to my initial visit. Very encouraging!
"I am looking forward to my subsequent visits. My first appointment is in 2 weeks, and I am feeling quite positive that I have made the right decision to have Dr. Morris treat me for severe scoliosis, & other back issues. He spent quality time asking questions, and responding to my questions. The office staff was friendly and made me feel at ease."


July 22, 2014 Joyce Tanisaka Need more of Dr. Morris "I reside in a senior apartment and as I look around at my neighbors limping about, walking with their walkers, canes, etc.. I realize I could have been one of them had I just received one medication after another along with cortezone shots whilst my condition worsen. Since seeing Dr. Morris, I am totally off of pain pills and often call on him instead of seeing my medical doctors. I no longer need a cane or a walker to get anywhere. If only there were more of him to treat more of us. Mahalo"

I have received the help when and where needed.
"In January of 2014, I had been suffering with sciatic pain in my left buttock. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the worst, I was a 10. I had gone as far as I could go with the epidural injections. The surgeons said that the only thing remaining was surgery with only a 50% chance of success. I looked for and found an alternative. I enrolled at the Morris Spinal Stenosis and Disc Center and, in 5 months went from a 10 to a 3. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Morris, and his staff. hanks"

A positive experience in every way!!
"I took my father to see Dr. Morris for some posture and neck issues.. My father left there a few inches taller, exercises in hand, but more then that with hope.

My family, friends and I will continue to visit Dr. Morris whenever we need.. "

Can't Do without Morris Spinal Stenosis
"If only insurance companies would allow chiropractic treatment. Since going to Dr. Morris, he has relieved me of pain from twisted rib, dizziness, severe sciatica, and no longer need to take cortezone shots for pain so severeI was not able to touch the heel of my foot or walk on it. Also after going to emergency and admitted in a hospital, he worked on my stomach to stimulate digestion and circulation which relieved the severe pain that doctors were not able to treat saving thousands of $$.

Dr. Howard F
Knowledgeable and caring
"As a fellow Chiropractor myself facing what I believed to be a career ending injury I contacted Dr. Morris. Dr. Morris was one of my instructors back in Chiropractic college and I always knew him to be incredibly smart and passionate about what he does. But being on the other side of the table as a patient showed me what a kind and caring individual he is. I am grateful for the time and care he took in helping me get better and allowing me to continue on doing what I love for many more years. "

Wonderful Doctor/ Rolls Royce Prices
"I was extremely impressed with Dr. Morris's initial consultation and it was among the most thorough and interesting ever. I gathered so much knowledge from that session; however, I thought the full exam was about half the cost of what it turns out to be. I cannot afford it at this time. That is all DWM"

No ultimate treatment needed/ Much support
"Dr. Morris has such a caring, calming and warm bedside manner, that I would probably see him even though my back has seemed to get better on its own. I've watched the many reviews of patients who have gotten better due to his help, and I have no doubts of his abilities. I believe that if he says he can help relieve your pain, that he can do what he says. "

Review of treatment
"I was very happy with the treatment provided by Dr. Morris and associates. I was not so happy with office practices. I traveled a long distance for treatment and at times full treatment was not provided (no massage very important to me) arrived for treatment and was advised that I needed to begin paying for visits. I was informed that I had already had 34 visits,not "

Skip Harris One of the worse back problems Dr Morris has seen
"My pain went from a 10 down to a 5 over 27 sessions.Used an "inversion table" at home (after my 27 sessions with Dr. Morris) but did not understand Dr. Morris' directions (5 minutes at most per session on the inversion table). My pain creeped back up to an 8-9. I went back in to Dr. Morris and he immediately pulled me off the inversion table and began additional office treatment (no decompression first few sessions). I am back down to pain level 5-6. "

Can't wait to start
"I was so impressed with everyone at Dr. Morris's office but especially with Dr. Morris himself. For the first time, someone took the time to explain my condition to me. I was also relieved that Dr. Morris believes he can help me and that I can avoid having to have surgery. I begin my treatments this weak and cannot wait! For the first time in a long time I have hope."

Excellent treatment and caring!
"I was afraid I might need surgery that had no guarantees to live without pain. By working with Dr. Morris and his staff now for 20 weeks I feel hopeful that I can have more and more days without pain and learn tools to help myself. I am still in his full back program which has put me on a healing journey. I will get stronger and have a fuller life. I know that now!!"

"Dr Morris and his treatment has given me back my life. I was regressing and sad about my physical situation. My loving husband of 38 years and I expected to dance and travel for the next 38 years. This was becoming a doomed plan. Now only after 2 months I feel my old self returning. I have been empowered and have been taught how to take charge of my physical condition. Dr Morris is my roll model. "

Robert (Skip) Harris
Thorough Exam
"As a first time patient and nothing but bad experiences from other Chiropractors, Dr. Morris did a very thorough exam after listening to my description of my back and leg pain. He asked good questions and I felt he knows what he is talking about. Next step is a follow up to review my MRI's and give me direction on what he may or may not be able to do for me. He seems very knowledgeable and caring."

What a Doctor Should Be
"My initial consultation and exam with Dr Morris, was the most complete that I have ever had by a Chiropractor, and I have seen over 15 in my life. His experience as a patient with symptoms much like mine is one of the things that has given him a superior medical model and philosophy compared to other doctors out there. If you are considering care from ANYONE for your back, you owe it to yourself to at least have an initial consult by Dr Morris. ."

The Right Care
"I've had a lot of different types of chiropractic care over the years, and when I walk our of Dr Morris's office, I do so know that I'm getting the right care for my overall health. The level of detail, communication, and just all around human empathy is difficult to replicate. It's comforting to know that whatever lies ahead with regard to my care, I'm taking care of my body and I'm on the path to feeling consistently better."
