Voice of the patient
“Dr. Chad Morgan, neurosurgeon, was one of the best physicians I have had to take care of my health care needs. I researched his background i.e. education, specialty training and skills and patient satisfaction reviews prior to selecting him as my surgeon. He also came highly recommended by my primary care provider … I am a former nurse practitioner with 20 years of experience and considered going elsewhere until I found Dr. Morgan. I am glad I decided to stay in Springfield, MO and have my operation performed by Dr. Morgan and have my post-op care at Cox. Thank you for providing such a great health care experience!”
