My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family medicine physician in the Western Medical World for several years, I feel I have a good sense of Western medicine’s strengths and weaknesses. I am convinced that a strong and trusting patient/physician relationship is the best tool we have to promote your overall good health and wellness. I believe that a tailored approach to each patient as an individual is the most effective way to practice good medicine.
My personal approach to life has always been to provide a good example to those entrusting me with their care. I have been a long-distance runner and veteran of many marathons, half marathons and shorter races over the last 20 to 30 years. The MDVIP practice model fits extremely well with my philosophy. Being able to spend even more time with my patients to plan and formulate a coordinated approach to their health is exactly where I want to be at this time in my career.

My primary care practice is located in Brighton, Michigan, but also serves South Lyon, Milford, Highland, Howell, Whitmore Lake, Fenton, Linden and Fowlerville.

Since Dr. Morrell has been part of the MDVIP program, he is available 24/7. I can communicate with him in several different ways. If it's just a question or a report, I can go right to the portal at MDVIP & shoot him an email. He always responds promptly. Other ways I've been in touch with him are via phone messages. He called me back while he was at a conference out of town. He… See more

I called the doctor, who saw me… See more

Several weeks ago we received a message from our 24 year old daughter, who is attending an Accelerated Nursing Program in Cincinnati, four hours from our home in Michigan, that her lips were swelling & beginning to tingle and a rash was spreading across her face & neck. She ended up in the Emergency room later that day being treated for an allergic reaction. After several hours in the… See more

from Kathrine February 12, 2019 for Ross J. Morell, DO

I've been seeing Dr. Morell for about 2 years now and have experienced the best health care I've ever had and have had meaningful, long-term, positive changes in every aspect of my life because of it. Not only do I no longer suffer from panic disorder, but the extreme anxiety I was experiencing for several years that manifested as many physical symptoms is 90-95 better.
