Dr morrissette is a wonderful doctor and we appreciate him very much. He treats my husband and I as well as my parents and we all love the way he treats us and spends time with us
Dr. W. Philip Morrissette has been my general physician for thirty-plus years, and I consider him to be the best doctor in the world! He is a dedicated professional; a humble man; and a caring, gentle person who is always willing to listen to, work with, and serve me in the best interests of my health. Of utmost importance to me is that Dr. Morrissette is a man of faith. There aren't… See more
I have had to call him on several occasions at odd hours in situations that felt dire and was always able to get him and have the crisis resolved.
It is very comforting to know that Dr. Morrissette is monitoring my health situation. He is easy to talk with and always makes you feel important. His professionalism as a medical doctor is well known, and I am delighted to help recognize his work.
Phil has shown his commitment to my wife and I as patients many times via his personal attention and follow up, as well as his availability for consult outside his office....his support for Sally during an alitude sickness event was superb.
Dr. Morrissette and I share an affinity for upland bird hunting, and unlike fishermen, we never, ever stretch the truth about our prowess or achievements (!) Simply sharing such stories is a tonic to me, and us both having deep affections for our respective alma maters makes visits to his office low-key, friendly affairs.
Dr. Morrissette not only knows his stuff (medical) but also engenders a comforting relationship with his patients. He and Kim Demming, assistant, are very approachable and have assisted with my medical needs in many ways. The feeling of assurance having Dr. Morrissette as my Family Physician is very special. A doctor who will listen to my corny jokes has to be special.
Thanks, Dr. M for your expert advice and excellent referrals over the last year. I appreciate all your and your staff's help in keeping this old engine running!
We are very grateful to have had Dr. Morrissette as our family physician for the past 35 years.
