Frequently Asked Questions
Does Dr. Morton accept new patients?
Yes! Call today (808)439-6201
Does Dr. Morton accept walk-in patients?
If I am in the office, usually I will see patients that walk-in. However, we prefer that you call ahead to let us know, especially if you have an emergency. If you are a new patient, it is important to find out if your insurance covers your visit before you come to the office.
If we are very busy in the office, we will have to reschedule your visit.
Will Dr. Morton see me during my visit?
I will see you for most of your visits. Sometimes when I am seeing patients on a different island, one of my partners will see you if you have an urgent problem. I do not currently work with a physician assistant or nurse practitioner - I feel that you always have the right to see your doctor.
Will Dr. Morton perform my surgery?
I do 100% of my surgical cases. While I do teach residents, it is in a demonstration mode to ensure patient safety. Surgery is a team approach - residents or assistants are required to ensure that you are taken care of appropriately.
If you see me for a problem that is unrelated to my specialty, I will refer you to another expert.
