Im so grateful that my proceedure turned out ok. Im not at all satisfied and feel like it was a waste of money. At least im not disfigured . He has to be the rudest, dist respectful and ruffest doctor i've met. Please dont take a chance withhim its not worth it.

I had surgery by Dr Morgan in Sep 1991 and assure you he was only professional! His staff is as professional and knowledgeable. I do not understand the complaints nor ecotour what some patients expected from a very qualified surgeon. His bedside manner WAS NOT warm and fuzzy, nor fondling over his patients. No, I am very attractive. I paid for his surgery excellence of which to this day I am quite happy.

I also referred others to Dr Morgan while living in Chico. They had only compliments for his knowledge, precision, care, and results. I certainly don't know how reliable or what miracles were expected by the patients who are complaining. He is not God nor did he ever allude to that attitude...maybe his PATIENTS thought he was God and expected unrealistic results. He stressed to me each individual responds to procedures differently and did not make unremarkable promises! As a matter of ethics: he insisted I be a non-smoker for no less than 3 months before he would consider the elected surgery to AVOID complications during healing process. Yes, I quit smoking for many years now.

You're right. I don't know him. I just have a bad habit of sticking up for people getting attacked by a mob. Seems like this should all be heard in a courtroom.
YES SIR, this is defamation of character. I don't stick up always for under dog but know him and have had procedure done by him. He is a great surgeon who does care about his patients!

I had a consult with Morgan a few years ago, and he really creeped me out. I later discovered about his issues in Colorado while I was researching Chico surgeons and also talked to a former employee of his who had plenty to say about him and not a bit of it good. I will say though that I had a very bad experience with two appointments at Dr. Kevin Meyer's office (he had to pull out a medical textbook to figure out how he should attempt a very standard procedure, he YELLED on the phone at someone cursing obscenities left and right, and his office staff had a VERY difficult time writing out a quote for a basic procedure - it took days and came back to me on scratch paper). I finally went with Dr. Daniel Thomas who I had heard many wonderful things about, but I had an awful outcome with him (even after a redo surgery). I suggest anyone considering plastic surgery in Chico go to Sacramento to find a decent surgeon.

why resort to name calling or derogatory comments. If everyone on here had such poor results, why is this not settled in Court?? My surgical results were excellent.

Hello, my name is viola, Dr Morgan did my breast reduction and scarred me for life. I was a triple EE before my breast reduction. After my surgery when I woke up I was traumatized by what I could not see. When I woke up in recovery I started to cry because I had no more breast I was flat chested like a man would be I cried and cried and cried Dr Morgan told me that I would have to massage my chest to get my breasts to come out of my chest cavity so I did as what he said when I went to doctor Morgans office to get the drainage tubes remove from my breast he pulled one of my tubes halfway out and threw half the tube on me and said here do you want to remove it I started to cry and told him no please just get it out. He then was removing the Gaz from my nipple area and cut my nipple and now there's scars all over them. my nipples began to bleed and they are just colored. I don't know how to report him and nor do I know how to get my breast fixed can somebody please help me figure out who to talk to about reporting him? Thank you.

I worked for him in 2002 and quit when his patient died because he didn't follow standard protocols. That was after a year of watching him sexually harrass employees and patients alike, make racist comments about the migrant workers who came in for hand surgeries (as well as commenting on our Jewish receptionist's nose and how she needed surgery!), and seeing several surgeries that he flat-out botched. He doesn't have malpractice showing up on the Medical Board site because he settled every single one of them out of court to avoid them showing up. He did a face lift on a woman with dementia whose friend kept bringing her in saying that she needed the surgery, against the wishes of this woman's son who had power of attorney. He funneled Amway/Quixtar products to his patients by telling them they needed to use those particular products after surgeries, making himself a bundle in the process. Unfortunately, he has a lot of friends in high places, and they're willing to testify on his behalf. It is absolutely ridiculous that he still has a license.

As for her personal proclivities, he is on his third wife, another nurse... because he tends to meet nurses while he's married, and he's a perv. My supervisor embezzled $30,000 from the practice by paying herself extra vacation money every month. When she vanished with the money, he couldn't even go after her because he knew she had enough dirt on him (including sexual harrassment) that he didn't want made public. How crazy is that?

There are more than one doctor around that smiles in public and on a power trip behind doors. Jackle and Hyde have nothing on them. Big fish in a small pond leads those of poor character to mis use positions. Research your physicians carefully. Do not depend on the good ole boy network as it feeds itself first.

Jekyll and Hyde you ignorant liberal moron!

And THIS is from someone who once claimed to have a MA in English and a 175 IQ?!!!

You know Grandpa... you are a perfect example of the miserable failure of the "liberal" approach to teaching in America today. Rather than actually read the book and know what you are talking about... just "pretend and pose" because the truth is "relative" and everything is anything you want it to be in liberal "La La Land"!

You know TWerP...You are a perfect example of the miserable failure of the "conservative" approach to everything in America today. Rather than discussing the relevant issues, you think everyone disagreeable to you is one of your former lovers who dropped you like a chunk of burning charcoal.

You are so stupid you believe that anyone who posts material that does not conform with your childish, little girl fantasies is either Bob or Grandpa.

Sorry Dimwit but I'm not your imaginary paramour TWerP!

And how does your ignorant posturing... pretending to be something you are not in any way equate to something that does not conform to my beliefs? You pretended to have knowledge of the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but you don't posses the brain power to even know how to properly spell "Jekyll"!??? What a pathetic old poser!!!

Once again, you were pretending to be something you are not! And once again, you blame YOUR IGNORANCE on some imaginary love interest which you call TWerP! No one has ever posted on this forum using that name. Perhaps you are confusing those voices in your head with reality again Grandpa. You are getting old Grandpa.

Don't listen to him Grandpa. There is no law that sez you have to spell words a certain way or only post under moniker. He's just a fecal face turd eater for not thinking right, the way you and me and Solution do. Who cares if you don't spell every little word right. Your still the smartst and super duper rich all that money. I will always lovee you Grandpa.

He is such a pathetic poser. Every time he pretends to be some kind of intellectual he makes a complete and total ass of himself because he obviously has no formal education whatsoever!

All he has are his lies and his imaginary friends to pretend he is something he is not... INTELLIGENT!!!

The real issue here IS TO BE SMART ENOUGH to know your doctor. Their goal is usually BIG money not your care. Look at the monopoly in Chico that is kept up so you have no competition ...limited choices and put up with WHATEVER. They don't want you to have choices.
GREED is what has caused the fatal illness of healthcare.

Wise up dude.
