A Role Model for Physicians

I have been a patient of Dr. Morrissette since 2013. In these past 7 years, I have realized that if I had the opportunity to define the ideal physician, any kind of physician, my foundation would be Phil Morrissette.

When I had my first consultation with Dr. M, I immediately understood that my health and well being was his primary focus. The health monitoring (check-ups and physicals) and lifestyle insights and planning that he recommends, coupled with his wonderful personality and professional methodologies, have been responsible for my much improved overall health.

He also has a wonderfully supportive "bed-side manner" that I discovered after a joint replacement in 2014. I was lying there in my hospital bed and in he walked just to see how I was getting on. I've had four other surgeries since and it's always the same: in he walks (or calls) to see how I was doing. That's a big deal and I can not express how appreciated it is and how much of a positive impact it has been for me. In addition, due to his excellent reputation Dr. M is also very well regarded among his peers. If a patient has a condition or ailment that needs specialist care, he seems to be able to provide a relevant and regarded referral; he's done that for me on a couple of occasions.

I can not put into words how much my relationship with Dr. Morrissette has meant to me. All I know is that my quality of life and emotional outlook are an order of magnitude better that it was when I was in my 30's and 40's (I'm now 60). The best that I can offer is to express to him that I feel extremely thankful that he is my physician and that he has made a giant positive impact on my life.
